Y’all may have noticed that I’ve had very little to say regarding the various recounts, audits, and what-have-you that have been grinding endlessly on in two or three states. There’s more than one reason for that, but mostly they all come down to one thing: even if they produced iron-clad, incontrovertible proof that the 2020 “election” was stolen—which, we all already know full well that it was—well, what then? Is there a man alive so hopelessly naive as to imagine that, in acknowledgment of these proofs, Biden would bow his head in shame and contrition; mumble an incoherent, rambling apology for the “error”; then pack his grip and stumble on back to Delaware?
Of course not; the very idea of it is ridiculous. No, the “election” was indeed fraudulent; Biden is “****president****”, for whatever that’s still worth and whatever it still means to anybody; and it’ll stay that way a few more months, maybe a year, until he finally croaks and Cumala the Willie Wanker is sworn in. That’s all there is to it. If we truly do want this issue properly addressed, we’re going to have to do it ourselves. There ain’t but just the one way to do that, and we all already know what it is.
That said, though, there’s also this:
Biden Breaking Bad | Kunstler
Up this afternoon (Friday) for instance: the results of the Maricopa, AZ, election audit. The New York Times has declared a preliminary draft of the audit “a cap-gun ending to an inquiry whose backers hinted would turn up a cannonade of fraud.” Their conclusion: “Joe Biden” won the 2020 election fair-and-square. That would be momentous if it were true, but is it? Or is it just the juke of a player that typically runs zig-zags through the facts? The Times certainly has an interest in, shall we say, getting ahead of the story in its never-ending quest to control the narrative — as opposed to delivering actual news fit to print. I’m standing by to sort out the jokers from the face-cards.
Basically I see this NYT piece as battlefield prep, and the revealing of the Official Line as to regarding the Maricopa Audit.
In my experience, the audit could show that half of all of Biden’s votes in Maricopa Country were fraudulent in some way or other, but the NYT and its harem of emasculated “journalism” outlets would repeat in unison, “Proof positive that “Joe Biden” won fair and square.”
Unfortunately, I’ve been worried for quite a while that the Maricopa audit results would not be nearly as clear cut or explosive as we’ve been promised.
We’ve seen a nearly unbroken string of “selling the sizzle,” but when the plate arrives it turns out to be “where’s the beef?”
We’ll know more this afternoon, but my early hunch is that the “sizzle” will turn out to be more of a fizzle.
Bill waxes even more depressed after that already-bleak assessment:
Arizona audit draft report confirms Biden beat Trump in 2020
A monthslong hand recount of Maricopa County’s 2020 vote confirmed that President Joe Biden won and the election was not “stolen” from former President Donald Trump, according to early versions of a report prepared for the Arizona Senate.
The three-volume report by the Cyber Ninjas, the Senate’s lead contractor, includes results that show Trump lost by a wider margin than the county’s official election results. The data in the report also confirms that U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly won in the county.
If this turns out to be accurate, the entire “Trump lost in 2020 because the election was fraudulently stolen” narrative will collapse and blow away within 24 hours.
At least among everybody but the truest of true believers.
Don’t buy into it. The NYT is indeed propagandizing, prepping the battlespace and shoring up the morale of their drooltard Leftist audience. But it’s all smoke…no, let’s just be completely frank here: it’s nothing more than a steaming, stinking pile of their usual horseshit lies.
Ignore the MSM: Here’s What the 2020 Maricopa County Election Audit Actually Says
“The partisan review of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots cast in the 2020 election found a vote count nearly identical to what the county had previously reported,” CNN reported. Like other liberal outlets, CNN focused on the results of the hand-recount part of the audit. As we know, hand recounts may account for slight discrepancies in counting but do not address irregularities or potentially illegally cast ballots.
So, let’s look into what the audit actually says.
By all means, let’s—not so much because this report or any other is going to change a goddamned thing, but just because having a look-see for ourselves is precisely what the NYT, CNNBCCBPBS, and the rest of the Usual Suspects™ would infinitely prefer us NOT do.
Follows, a bullet-point list from the draft report’s summary, and then this.
The audit team faults Maricopa County officials for not cooperating with the audit, which would have resolved many of these obstacles. “By the County withholding subpoena items, their unwillingness to answer questions as is normal between auditor and auditee, and in some cases actively interfering with audit research, the County prevented a complete audit,” the summary explains. “This did not stop the primary goal of offering recommendations for legislative reform to the Arizona Senate, but it did leave many questions open as to the way and manner that the 2020 General Election was conducted. As a result, while many areas of concern were specifically identified, our full audit results validating the 2020 General Election are necessarily inconclusive.”
While the media is claiming that the audit report confirms Biden’s victory, it does not. “There are sufficient discrepancies among the different systems that, in conjunction with some of our findings, suggest that the delta between the Presidential candidates is very close to the potential margin‐of‐error for the election,” the audit summary explains.
Why do these matter? Because, according to the state-certified results, Joe Biden barely won the state by a 10,457-vote margin. The tiny margin of victory in the state-certified results means that these discrepancies are very troubling. There were 42,727 impacted ballots ranked as “high” or “critical” severity—that’s four times the certified margin of victory. If you include “medium” severity discrepancies, there were 53,214 impacted ballots—more than five times the certified margin of victory. Overall, there were 57,734 impacted ballots.
These findings don’t prove fraud, but certainly demonstrate the potential for fraud. And these impacted ballots have not been vetted.
So, has Joe Biden’s victory been proven? Not in the least. The truth is, we’ll never know the truth about how many ballots were impacted. Of course, the mainstream media knows this, which is why, deep down in CNN’s report about the audit, it laments that the draft report “shows that Cyber Ninjas and their subcontractors are still seeking ways to cast doubt on the election,” pointing to the thousands of ballots flagged.
The bottom line: The number of ballots impacted by discrepancies far exceeds Biden’s margin of victory in the state. Both sides of this debate will claim the report validates their position, but in truth, without proper vetting of the impacted ballots, we’ll never know if the election results were legitimate.
The boldfaced bit is the main takeaway from the whole circle-jerk: WE WILL INDEED NEVER KNOW—KNOW FOR ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY CERTAIN, BEYOND ANY DOUBT—WHETHER THE ELECTION WAS STOLEN. Which is NOT the same thing, mind, as saying that we don’t already know well enough.
Election fraud is generally acknowledged to be an extremely difficult thing to prove conclusively; with an electorate as large as ours, as well as a specific power-mad party long accustomed to swindling its way to “victory” without consequence, it becomes almost a practical impossibility. There are myriad ways of stealing paper-ballot elections, which provide the most reliable results. Throw electronic voting machines into the mix and you almost guarantee widespread fraud. Mail-in ballots, with (ahem) flexible deadlines for submission? Stop it, you’re killing me over here.
Further eroding the already-thin hope of establishing the 2020 theft to the courtroom “beyond REASONABLE doubt” standard are some simple facts, among them: the voting machines have long since been reset and/or otherwise tampered with; questionable ballots have been disposed of and/or destroyed; security cam documentation of at-best suspicious activity in swing-state counting rooms has been erased, and more yet, including but not limited to:

All this dubious activity, remember, from an audit in just one county, in one just one state.
In short, what we have here is typically referred to in criminal-justice circles as “a preponderance of evidence” strongly suggesting systemic jiggery-pokery, a preponderance which in turn strongly suggests its occurance in several states, if not all of ’em. It all makes the MFM’s transparent and predictable stab at nudging public opinion towards bland acceptance of the “Biden won!” lie is risible.
And none of it matters, not in the least. Here’s what does: THEY’RE LIARS. We KNOW they’re liars. That’s as solid a fact as facts come, no more worth discussing further than the proposition that, say, water is wet. That sticking your hand into the heart of a roaring fire is a VERY bad idea. That no matter how furiously you flap your arms, you are not going to fly yourself to a gentle landing after jumping off a cliff. The NYT, CNN, MSDNC, Uniparty politicians, Deep State bureauticks, ALL of them—LIARS. They have confirmed it again and again and again, not just in the context of fraudulent “elections,” but on EVERY issue.
So why in the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed world would any of us believe them NOW? Or, really, EVER AGAIN? About anything at all?
I urge you, one and all: don’t. Just don’t do it. Ignore them instead; pay not a moment’s heed to a word out of their lying mouths. Above all, do NOT allow them the slightest influence over your opinions, your beliefs, or your actions.
Yes, the 2020 “election” was stolen. Yes, American “elections” in general are in no way free, fair, or honest; they haven’t been in years, if they ever were. Yes, participating in them is pure futility, utterly pointless. Yes, the whole system is rotten to the core, to the point that it can never be fixed or restored via traditional, peaceful means. AS ZMan put it, a system that is immune to voting is not going to be fixed by more voting.
The classic, cynical old slogan that holds “If voting could change anything, it would be illegal” has never been more factual or relevant than it is today. It also applies to audits. Biden will be stumbling, bumbling, and mumbling around the White House—just as the overarching charade will continue to grind on—for exactly as long as we put up with it…and not a minute longer.
Someone should make a meme about not voting our way out of this. I don’t get the people who were sure this was going to overturn the election and install Trump as President, there was no way any amount of evidence was going to lead to that.
[…] Mike responds to a post of mine from yesterday, and finishes with: […]
The election was stolen. Anyone capable of doing basic math and reading results knows this.
The audits will not cause the government in control of the audits, the judges, and the courts to admit to anything. That much is certain.
However, instead of crying in your beer, how about we continue with the facts, loudly, that the election was fraudulent and Trump won. That is the story, not trying to prove you are correct that nothing will be done.
