Well, the 2020 presidential election has finally concluded – sorta.

The media has called the race for Joe Biden, and the Democrat is already building a transition team and preparing to take over the White House. However, Donald Trump has not yet conceded.

The incumbent believes he was robbed and is bringing his gripes to the judicial system.

Trump’s “Baseless” Claims

To be honest, President Trump has some legitimate complaints; there are aspects of the ballot counting procedures that have appeared sketchy – at least, on the surface. I’m not endorsing any conspiracy theories about the entire election being rigged, but there have been some developments that I’d argue are questionable.

Of course, the media is jumping all over Trump’s allegations of impropriety, pointing to the President’s legal challenges and reluctance to concede as proof that he’s the Hitlerian super-fascist they’ve been selling to the public all along.

Now, questioning the validity of an election is the ultimate disgrace and a threat to our democracy’s legacy of peaceful transfers of power. To be skeptical of any of the ballot tallies this time around is to be a Trump-loving neo-fascist, or worse.

How Convenient!

How quickly we forget the four straight years of nonstop, baseless Russiagate conspiracies used to undermine the 2016 results. We were continually told that Trump only won because of foreign interference.

After all of that nonsense, mainstream outlets have the nerve to dub the 2020 election “the most secure” in history, coincidentally when their preferred candidate appears to have won.

How fortunate that our most heated rivals on the world stage — who were hellbent on influencing the 2016 election to install Trump and undermine the United States’ government — decided to take this one off!

Jake Tapper tweeted that he believes election skepticism should threaten Americans’ future employment prospects. “I truly sympathize with those dealing with losing — it’s not easy — but at a certain point, one has to think not only about what’s best for the nation (peaceful transfer of power) but how any future employers might see your character defined during adversity,” said the CNN host.

Inconsistencies in media coverage aside, everyone is panicking over nothing. The odds of Donald Trump winning back this election through a series of legal rulings and recounts is exceptionally minute.

Joe Biden is an overwhelming favorite to be the president-elect once the results are officially certified – to the extent that most political betting sites have removed the odds from their boards.

Nevertheless, the election isn’t over just because the media deemed it so.

There will be some critical battles between now and the electoral college electors casting their votes.

When Key Battlegrounds Certify their Results:

  • November 16 – Virginia
  • November 17 – Florida
  • November 20 – Georgia
  • November 23 – Michigan, Pennsylvania
  • November 30 – Arizona
  • December 1 – Wisconsin

Each state elector officially casts their votes on December 14. The final certification is on January 6, when Congress counts and certifies the electoral vote.

2020 Presidential Election Called for Joe Biden

There’s a 99.5% chance that Joe Biden (and/or Kamala Harris) will be sworn into office as the 46th President of the United States of America. The Democrats are projected to win in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

However, the Trump campaign is contesting the reported results in several close races and has filed lawsuits in Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Wisconsin and Georgia are already slated to hold recounts.

The Media Says Joe Biden Won

One of the primary sources of contention among the 71 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump has been the media’s enthusiasm to declare Joe Biden the winner. People went to sleep on Election Night with the incumbent enjoying comfortable leads where they mattered most, only to wake up to the news of the Democratic ticket eclipsing nearly all of them.

To complicate matters further, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, The Associated Press, and USA Today – almost simultaneously — called the race for Joe Biden on the morning of November 7. Fox News, who called Arizona for the Democratic challenger unacceptably early the night before, joined them approximately ten minutes later.

For a group already primed to expect Election Day shenanigans, it couldn’t have appeared more coordinated.

The urgency with which Democrats and their media pundits are claiming victory for Biden, mixed with the blind rejection of the possibility of any fraudulent behavior, gives the appearance of guilt to people outside the liberal bubble.

Their reaction to “winning” has validated Donald Trump’s allegations of widespread election rigging to the people most predisposed to believe them.

Between the razor-thin margins in some states, biased behavior of key election officials, and questionable practices used at crucial polling stations, Republican voters have a right to be suspicious. Throw in a ridiculously one-sided media and the Biden campaign’s hasty transition preparations, and it’s a certainty that no matter what happens next, half the electorate is going to believe their candidate was cheated.

It’s important to remember that the news media does not decide who wins presidential elections. Regardless of who they “call” the race for or how legitimate they claim the unofficial results to be, there’s still plenty of time remaining before Joe Biden’s win is official.

Still, Biden is Going to Win

All of that said, it doesn’t matter if the media’s behavior since Election Night – and for the entirety of the Trump administration – has been blatantly biased and irresponsible.

It doesn’t matter that ridiculous volumes of pro-Biden ballots rolled in at 4 AM in battleground states or glitches in the voting software were caught flipping votes to the Democrats in Georgia and Michigan – it doesn’t even matter that the same voting booth manufacturer supplied machines for all of the most important states.

All of that is circumstantial evidence.

For Donald Trump to overturn the widely agreed-upon election result, he needs hard, concrete proof of fraud. So far, he’s been unable to win the court rulings required to discover and definitively prove any allegations of wrongdoing.

As we’ll discuss in the next section, there are still some legal decisions up in the air, but it’s not looking good for the President. The most probable outcome is that Trump’s complaints will continue to be dismissed as sour grapes, if not delusions.

More significantly, even if the Trump campaign wins some of their legal challenges, it’s unlikely they’ll impact enough ballots to erase Joe Biden’s margins. The most specific allegations brought forth by the President’s team deal with relatively small quantities of votes.

For Example:

Trump’s lawyers already dropped their suit in Arizona because it wouldn’t affect enough votes to make a difference either way.

Donald Trump’s Ongoing Legal Challenges and Accusations of Fraud

Never bet against me,” President Trump told the Washington Examiner on Thursday, in his first public comments on the election since Election Night.

He detailed how the Trump campaign plans to find a pathway to 270 electoral college votes.

“We’re going to win Wisconsin,” the incumbent told Examiner reporter Byron York. “Arizona – it’ll be down to 8,000 votes, and if we can do an audit of the millions of votes, we’ll find 8,000 votes easy. If we can do an audit, we’ll be in good shape there.”

“Georgia, we’re going to win, because now, we’re down to about 10,000, 11,000 votes, and we have hand-counting,” he said, referring to the upcoming audit after software malfunctions called into question some of the tallies. “Hand-counting is the best. To do a spin of the machine doesn’t mean anything. You pick up 10 votes. But when you hand-count – I think we’re going to win Georgia.”

The Trump Administration’s Record in Court

I might have to bet against you, Mr. President.

I haven’t done the calculations, but I suspect the Trump team – both in the White House and his two campaigns – has been the least successful administration at fighting legal battles in all of United States history. Whether it’s the Supreme Court or lower courts, they lose every case that matters.

Trump has nominated three Supreme Court justices and confirmed about a million more federal judges and still can’t get a meaningful “W!”

  • Remember back in June when the Supreme Court ruled against Trump’s attempt to terminate the DACA program?
  • How about when he tried to add a citizenship question to the census?

In both cases, the President lost due to violations of the Administrative Procedure Act. His legal arguments weren’t necessarily unfounded; his team just didn’t follow the requirements and procedures needed to win their desired ruling.

So, before we dig into what’s going on in the remaining swing states and other suspicious election issues, remember:

Donald Trump’s inner circle is awful at “lawfare.”

It wouldn’t matter if establishment officials were found to have literally hacked every election machine and flipped the race for Joe Biden; somehow, the President’s team would screw up their case and get all their evidence disqualified (or some other humiliating screw-up). And the incumbent isn’t fighting over anything that juicy.

As expected, the Trump campaign’s legal prowess has produced similar results since Election Night. They’ve lost nearly every ruling.


President Trump trailed Joe Biden in Georgia by 14,163 votes as of Friday morning.

On Wednesday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced a “full, by-hand recount in each county” in an effort to “help build confidence” in the state’s final election totals. Raffensperger promises to oversee an audit, recount, and recanvass “all at once.”

Despite some concerning developments involving software malfunctions and suspiciously shifting vote tallies that favored the Democratic challenger, Georgia has been called for Joe Biden.

Garland Favorito, a co-founder of Voter GA, suspects a variety of questionable factors affected the Peach State’s results.

He suspects a combination of ballot harvesting, votes being “artificially inflated” for Biden, and complications from using Dominion Security’s voting system — the same system caught erroneously transferring 6,000 votes from Trump to Biden.

“The software appears to have thrown votes from Trump to Biden here too,” he told Real Clear Investigations. “Or Biden ballots were manufactured.”

Dominion Security Systems

In the early hours of November 5, as election officials counted mail-in ballots at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena, a surge of roughly 20,000 mail-in votes suddenly appeared for Joe Biden, while President Trump simultaneously lost 1,000 votes in that same instant.

A poll watcher monitoring the election totals on Georgia’s Secretary of State’s website caught the dubious change as it happened.

“I concluded from looking at these results that this was an irregularity, since there was no obvious reason for President Trump’s totals to have decreased while former Vice President Biden’s totals increased dramatically,” Favorito, an IT professional who’s advocated for improved election integrity in Georgia for two decades, swore in an affidavit filed this week.

The large swing in the ballot count “was something I had never witnessed before in my years of election monitoring,” Favorito, who claims to be neither a Republican nor Trump supporter, added.

“They knew good and well they should never have bought this system in the first place,” he said. “We explained that Dominion was rejected in Texas for failing to meet basic security standards before they bought it.”

Before Biden’s apparent victory, concerns over the country’s electronic voting systems were common knowledge – even amongst Democrats.

In March 2019, Politico published a report noting that “the machines that Georgia, Delaware, Philadelphia and perhaps many other jurisdictions will buy before 2020 are an improvement over the totally paperless devices that have generated controversy for more than 15 years,” but “still pose unacceptable risks.”

“Security experts warn, however, that hackers could still manipulate the barcodes without voters noticing.”

Hilariously enough, when the Georgia lawmakers voted on adopting the Dominion technology, Democrats were concerned over security, and Republicans voted in favor of the machines.

“Right now, we do not have the ability to conduct elections safely and securely and be able to correctly audit them,” said Democratic state Rep. Jasmine Clark. “When it comes to people being able to access the democratic and make sure their vote is counted, paper is the way to go.”

Dominion was also at the center of a 2016 recount effort by Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

Stein wanted insight into the Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan vote counts and sought access to the software code used in those states’ voting machines. The vendors – including Dominion — who made the machines dug in for an extended legal battle.

Stein’s computer experts still haven’t seen the code.

An academic paper written by professors from Princeton, Georgia Tech, and UC Berkeley about the vulnerabilities of the US’s electronic voting systems calls out Dominion’s Image Cast Evolution (ICE):

“Vote-stealing software could easily be constructed that looks for undervotes on the ballot, and marks those unvoted spaces for the candidate of the hacker’s choice. This is very straightforward to do on optical-scan bubble ballots (as on the Dominion ICE) where undervotes are indicated by no mark at all.

“On machines such as the ExpressVote and ExpressVoteXL, the normal software indicates an undervote with the words NO SELECTION MADE on the ballot summary card. Hacked software could simply leave a blank space there (most voters wouldn’t notice the difference), and then fill in that space and add a matching bar code after the voter has clicked ‘cast this ballot.’

“An even worse feature of the ES&S ExpressVote and the Dominion ICE is the auto-cast configuration setting (in the manufacturer’s standard software) that allows the voter to indicate, ‘don’t eject the ballot for my review, just print it and cast it without me looking at it.’

“If fraudulent software were installed in the ExpressVote, it could change all the votes of any voter who selected this option, because the voting machine software would know in advance of printing that the voter had waived the opportunity to inspect the printed ballot. We call this auto-cast feature ‘permission to cheat.””

The study is consistent with what Duncan Buell, a computer science professor at the University of South Carolina, has said about barcode-based election systems. The type of voting machine used in Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania “makes a mockery of the notion that the ballot is ‘voter-verifiable,’” he said, because “what the voter verifies is not what is tallied.”

“It basically turns the system into one that has all of the well-known problems that paperless voting machines have,” added Matt Blaze, a computer science and law professor at Georgetown. “You have to trust the software that’s being used to cast the vote.”

Glitch or Fraud?

Back to Garland Favorito, the election security advocate believes the vote shift in Fulton County was so extreme it’s almost as if someone deliberately “dumped” a massive batch of mail-in ballots into the system for Biden overnight.

“One candidate could not go up by 20,000 and the other do nothing — in Fulton County or any county in Georgia,” he stated. “That’s just not going to happen.”

Speaking on the Georgia recount, Favorito added:

“I think they’re going to find the root cause of the irregularity was something electronic, and I think it’s going to change the results substantially.”

While the career IT pro accepts that inconsistencies could be the fault of a software glitch, equipment malfunction, or vote-swapping “malware” infecting the system, he also worries that the dramatic shifts could be the result of deliberate misconduct by election official(s) or worker(s).

“There’s always the chance it was an inside job,” said Favorito. Of course, Republican and Democratic officials in Georgia say they’ve discovered no credible evidence of election fraud.

Counting in the “Dark” & Ballot Harvesting

Fulton County election officials raised some red flags on November 3. After telling observers they were shutting down the tabulation center before midnight, they continued counting well into the morning while no one was watching.

“Fulton County elections officials falsely announced that the counting of ballots would stop at 10:30 PM,” complained Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer on Twitter. “Officials unlawfully resumed the counting of ballots after our observers left the center.”

Favorito, the Voter GA co-founder, is concerned that what he saw on November 5 was not an isolated incident. “There could have been multiple 20,000-batch irregularities,” he said, “but they never got reported because they cleared out the observers.”

The election security expert believes ballot harvesting could be another possible explanation for the wild vote tallies.

“There is evidence there was some type of ballot harvesting going on in Georgia,” Favorito said, “but we don’t know yet if it’s tied to the drop boxes.”

Favorito cited the inordinately large number of “Biden-only” ballots cast — ballots that only had the presidential vote filled out for Biden, with no down-ballot races checked. These voting patterns make more sense in the context of ballots having been collected from voters and completed for them — or “harvested” — then delivered to drop boxes.

Recount Concerns

“It’s a good first step,” Favorito said, about Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s by-hand recount. “A recount will be able to determine if there was electronic vote fraud,” adding that “no election is without isolated issues.”

However, many are worried the recount will be inadequate to detect and correct ballot discrepancies. GOP officials in Georgia have expressed these concerns to the Secretary of State.

On Thursday, David Shafer of the Georgia Republican Party and Rep. Doug Collins — who is leading the Trump campaign’s recount effort in the state — wrote a letter to Raffensperger, stressing that the Secretary’s directives “do not comport” with his “stated goals yesterday and do not satisfy our concerns that gave rise to our request for a hand count in the first place.”

For Example:

The recount won’t include steps to verify signature matches on absentee ballot applications and ballot envelopes.

“Our analysis of your office’s publicly available data shows that the number of rejected absentee ballots in Georgia plummeted from 3.5% in 2018 to 0.3% in 2020,” the letter read.

“This raises serious concerns as to whether the counties properly conducted signature verification and/or other scrutiny of absentee ballots. In fact, it presents the issue of whether some counties conducted any scrutiny at all,” the GOP officials continue in the letter, emphasizing that a signature review is “fundamental to this procedure.”

“We do not believe it is possible to certify the results of the 2020 General Election without conducting this investigation and analysis,” they added.

Shafer and Collins also have problems with the rules restricting oversight of the auditing process. They’re demanding “meaningful” access to the recount for “designated monitors.” Raffensperger’s rules assert that state parties “can designate only one reviewer for every 10 audit teams.”

“That makes it impossible for hand count decisions to be reviewed in real time. One designated monitor cannot observe ten tables at once. Transparency has been a very significant problem during this election,” they argued in the letter.


Joe Biden has a 148,382-vote lead over Trump in Michigan.

The Trump campaign has filed multiple lawsuits in Michigan.

An earlier suit filed by the President’s team attempted to stop the state from counting mail-in votes shortly after Election Day. However, Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Cynthia Stevens rejected it, ruling that Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson couldn’t meet the campaign’s demands because counting the ballots was almost completed.

As part of their suit, the campaign submitted an affidavit from a local election official who claimed she was instructed to backdate ballots. However, Judge Stevens rejected the claim as “hearsay.”

Trump’s latest lawsuit seeks to block Benson from certifying Michigan’s results, alleging the state ran an unconstitutional election. It also seeks to provide campaign officials with the opportunity to review ballots from Wayne County.

On Thursday, Michigan GOP officials asked Secretary Benson to complete an audit before the election results are certified.

“Every citizen deserves to have faith in the integrity of the election process and its outcome,” reads the letter, penned by state senators Lana Theis and Tom Barrett. “It is our responsibility, as elected public servants, to assure the people of Michigan of the process’s integrity through complete transparency and the faithful investigation of any allegations of wrongdoing, fraud, or abuse.”

“Unfortunately, a number of serious allegations have been made which cannot and should not be ignored,” the letter continues, referencing another Dominion “glitch” in Antrim County.

The historically Republican county initially turned blue this election. However, it flipped back to red after a manual recount uncovered thousands of votes cast for President Trump that were credited to Joe Biden. Antrim is one of 64 counties across Michigan that uses “Dominion Voting Systems.”

Despite similar “errors” occurring across multiple states, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office claims the skewed results were due to “county user error,” not software issues.

The state senators’ letter also alleges that poll watchers were not allowed to observe the ballot process.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said there were reports that poll watchers were challenged and intimidated. She also claims there were irregularities in Detroit’s ballot-counting center and that vote-counters were backdating ballots.<

A whistleblower working for Detroit city filed a complaint to the Justice Department that she was instructed to change the dates on ballots improperly, the Washington Examiner reported.

According to Laura Cox, the chairwoman of Michigan’s Republican Party, “the employees directing the whistleblower were working out of Detroit’s TCF Center, which is the main hub where absentee ballots in Wayne County were being counted.”

Those allegations have been refuted by Benson, the ACLU, and senior election advisor to Detroit, Chris Thomas.


Biden has a 54,273-vote lead over Donald Trump in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania could be the deciding factor if the election comes down to the wire.

The Keystone State will be the most hotly contested race between now and when vote totals are certified; Trump doesn’t have a path to victory without a win here. So naturally, things in PA are looking exceedingly corrupt.

Data Anomalies

According to two reports, “providing over 10 pages of statistical analysis of raw Pennsylvania voter data,” Joe Biden benefitted from a plethora of anomalies.

The analysis determines that in Philadelphia, for example, the probability of these irregularities all occurring and all helping the Democratic challenger is the equivalent of tossing a coin and having it land on heads 100 times in a row!

“The votes for Biden are unusually high for ten counties, reporting an excess of 299,000 votes in excess of expectation. These deviations are legitimate reasons to insist on closely monitored recounts,” the report notes.

As was the case in Michigan, an outrageous number of people cast ballots that only included a vote for the President. The analysts determined that this phenomenon took place exponentially more often with Biden voters.

“Another way to track down fraudulent votes is to look closely at how many of the votes did little or no down-ticket voting. When manufacturing votes, it is too time consuming to vote for other office holders,” the report says.


Naturally, the authors of the report mentioned above have been suspended by Twitter and are seeing their findings suppressed by Big Tech.

Dead Voters

If there were fraudulent ballots cast, a lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania before Election Day could explain where they came from. The suit claimed there were 21,000 deceased people on the state’s voter rolls ahead of the 2020 election. Ninety percent of them have been dead for more than five years, and 12,192 were still listed as active.

Tools to Program Voting Machines Stolen

In September, somebody stole a laptop, and multiple memory sticks used to program Philadelphia’s voting machines. City officials vowed not to let the stolen materials compromise the election results.

“We are confident that this incident will not in any way compromise the integrity of the election,” said Nick Custodio, a deputy to Lisa Deeley, chair of the city commissioners who oversee elections.

However, the stolen technology was never recovered. How hard would it be for a hacker to install malware onto the memory sticks and insert one of them into a voting machine during or after the election?

Numerous YouTube videos highlight the comical vulnerabilities of our voting machines – it was a popular opinion on both sides of the aisle before November 3.

It’d be even easier to mess with the ballot count if nobody was watching.

Exclusion of Poll Watchers

In Pennsylvania, Trump’s legal strategy primarily revolves around his contention that GOP poll watchers were locked out of the vote counting at critical times.

“They wouldn’t let our poll watchers and observers watch or observe,” the President said, in a Washington Examiner interview. “That’s a big thing. They should throw those votes out that went through during those periods of time when [Trump observers] weren’t there. We went to court, and the judge ordered [the observers] back, but that was after two days, and millions of votes could have gone through. Millions. And we’re down 50,000.”

The Mail Carrier

Richard Hopkins, a mail carrier from Erie, Pennsylvania, accused his boss of backdating postmarks to make ballots that were mailed too late appear as if they were collected by November 3.

“Postmaster Rob Weisenbach directed my co-workers and I (sic) to pick up ballots after Election Day and provide them to him,” Hopkins said in an affidavit obtained by the US Senate Judiciary Committee. The mailman claims that his postmaster ordered staff to collect and submit late ballots, which Hopkins alleges “supervisors then backdated so that they appeared to have been mailed in time,” reported the Washington Times.

“As discussed more fully below, I heard Weisenbach tell a supervisor at my office that Weisenbach was backdating the postmarks on the ballots to make it appear as though the ballots had been collected on November 3, 2020 despite them in fact being collected on November 4 and possibly later.”

Then, things took a truly bizarre twist.

Following Hopkins’ complaint, The Washington Post cited three officials who claim the mail carrier admitted to US Postal Service investigators that his accusations were fabricated. The media ran with this story as further proof that Trump’s concerns over voter fraud were unfounded.

On Tuesday, Project Veritas – James O’Keefe’s right-wing activist group that aired Hopkins’ initial claims – posted a video to its Twitter account that appears to show Richard Hopkins insisting that he did not recant his statements as reported. He also promised that more details would come out on Wednesday.

The next day, Project Veritas released additional recordings of an investigator attempting to convince Richard Hopkins to change his narrative. James O’Keefe says he’s “happy to go under oath” to back up the story and his reporting.

Everyone Cheats

If you want to be a great political handicapper, you better get things like “fairness” and “right/wrong” out of your head right now.

In addition to the many examples discussed above, more of the same took place in Wisconsin, Nevada, and Arizona. Everyone used hackable voting machines, poll workers and officials displayed extreme bias, and lots of underhanded tactics were deployed.

Donald Trump also consistently outperformed his polling except for in Democratically run counties in crucial swing states. Suddenly, in these critical areas, he dramatically underdelivered. It doesn’t make much sense.

And the deeper you go down the voting machine rabbit hole, the scarier it gets. I don’t even want to go much further into detail, lest I accidentally get my boss’s website blacklisted by Big Tech.

So, I’ll just say this: everyone cheated.

Joe Biden’s side out-cheated the Republicans this time, so he’s who we focus on, but it’s not like the Republicans are innocent. For as long as there’s been the United States of America, everyone involved in every presidential race did whatever they thought they could get away with to tip the election in their candidate’s favor.

Traditionally, the Democrats ballot harvest and benefit from dead people miraculously casting votes. Republicans gerrymander and suppress minority voters.

When they aren’t redrawing district lines into absurd and bizarre shapes, cherry-picking their preferred demographics to maximize GOP voters’ impact, they’re shutting down polling stations and passing laws meant to restrict access to ballots.


After Election Day, Donald Trump had supporters chanting “stop the count” outside of counting stations in Michigan, while other groups simultaneously yelled “count all votes” in Arizona.

There’s no ideological consistency; the President’s just throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks.

This year, Trump got outplayed in the “dirty politics” arena.

Do I think there’s some super sketchiness involved with the voting machines flipping votes and mail-in ballot harvesting?


Do I think the Trump campaign has what it takes to challenge those issues in court successfully – or that they even own the moral high ground to do so?

Not a chance.

But don’t worry Trump fans; this is the best outcome for which you could have ever wished.

Donald inspired over 71 million supporters out to the polls; his brand of Republicanism is now proven and here to stay.
Let the man take a few years off to start his own conservative media network to rival Fox, and he’ll be back stronger than ever in 2024.
You can bet him early at +2000 moneyline odds to win a second term four years from now!
