The Democrats have proven to be running on empty over the last 16 months of the Biden presidency.
It is not as if they are trying to roll back their electorally toxic policies.
This means they will be wiped out politically at the midterms. Nevertheless, they seem unperturbed by the fact that they are not worried about winning elections.
It is evident that the Democratic Party is not hiding under the covers when it comes to the election. There is a nefarious plan afoot.
Although they can’t govern well, they are the best at grabbing power by foul means or fair means.
We are now faced with the thorny topic of the 2020 presidential election. The new rules imposed under the cover of COVID had many Americans thinking something was not quite right.
Never mind Sidney Powell’s ill-conceived Kraken concept which never materialized.
Democracies tried many ways to tilt the playing field in their favor, but some worked better than others. They won a triumph when their friends in Big Tech censored The Post’s Hunter Biden laptop coverage before the election.
In order to restore trust in elections, troubling evidence of systematic schemes to subvert them is now coming to light.
In “2000 Mules,” the documentary by Dinesh D’Souza based on research by True The Vote, the most convincing evidence of suspicious ballot harvesting has emerged.
Using cellphone geotracking and surveillance video, it shows a network of “mules” in battleground states busily collecting ballots from get-out-the-vote NGOs and stuffing them, a few at a time, into multiple drop boxes in the dead of night.
It is staggering to see how extensive the undertaking is.
True the Vote bought three trillion geolocation signals from cellphones near drop boxes, as well as near election nonprofits, from October 1, 2020, to election day, November 3, 2020. The Georgia deadline covered the runoff on Jan. 6, 2021.
Then they searched for “mules,” operatives who stole ballots from election NGOs – like Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action group – and then carried them to drop boxes, depositing between three and ten ballots in each drop box before moving on.
” Mule” was the term chosen by Catherine Engelbrecht, the founder of True the Vote, since it “felt a lot like a cartel, it felt like trafficking . . . This is in its essence ballot trafficking . . . You have the collectors. You have the stash houses, which are the nonprofits. And then you have the mules that are doing the drops.”
In order for a mule to be included in the data set, Gregg Phillips set a threshold of at least 10 drop boxes within a particular area, as well as at least five visits to an NGO.
In the Atlanta metro area, for instance, they drew a line around 309 drop boxes, and they bought all cellphone data collected from people that had been near those boxes and NGOs.
Thus, we were left with 2,000 mules to choose from.
They then went searching for surveillance videos of those drop boxes. All told, they uncovered four million minutes.
What they found is shocking. Video shows the scheme coming to life when a mule is matched with a video.
After midnight, a car shows up at a dropbox. A man exits, looks around discreetly, approaches the ballot box, stuffs a few ballots in, and runs away. He then moves to each ballot box, again and again.
From December 23, 2020 onwards, Phipps discovered mules in Georgia were wearing gloves. He cites the indictment handed down in Arizona on December 22 in connection to ballot stuffing. “The way the FBI nailed them was fingerprints.” The mules then started wearing gloves.
As D’Souza shows in his data, a complex network of routes taken by mules between NGOs and dropboxes is unmistakable.
An average of 38 dropbox visits per mule was made, and five ballots were deposited per visit. That amounts to about 380,000 suspicious votes.
Using the numbers, D’Souza explains whether the outcome of the election would have been different.
There were 500 mules in Michigan, averaging 50 dropbox visits per mule, or 125,000 suspected votes, not enough to overcome Biden’s 154,000-vote advantage.
With 100 mules in Wisconsin visiting a dropbox on average 28 times each, we have 14,000 suspect votes, 6,000 votes short of a Trump victory.
However, in Georgia, where 250 mules visited 24 dropboxes each, we get 30,000 suspect votes, more than enough to overcome Biden’s 12,000 vote lead. According to D’Souza, Georgia’s 16 electoral votes now go to Trump.
20,000 suspect votes can be attributed to 200 mules making an average of 20 visits to dropboxes, giving Trump 11 more likely electoral votes.
During the Philadelphia campaign alone, 1,100 mules made an average of 50 dropbox visits each, resulting in 275,000 suspect votes, which would flip the Pennsylvania result to Trump and give him another 20 electoral votes.
“Shockingly, even this narrow way of looking at just our 2,000 mules in these swing states gives Trump the win with 279 electoral votes to Biden’s 259,” notes D’Souza.
Now, those ballots can’t be examined to see if they’re fraudulent, but if we’re going to use drop boxes, they need to be secure and monitored 24/7.
There’s obviously some problem. However, on the campaign trail, Republican candidates – even potential Donald Trump – should not be looking backward at their 2020 election loss. To do so makes them appear bitter.
