The following timely election commentary is provided courtesy of physicist and Mensa John Droz, Jr., at the Alliance for Wise Energy Decisions (WiseEnergy.org):
Let’s say that on December 14, 2020, that the majority of Electoral College votes are for Joe Biden to be President. Does that mean it’s over? Yes and No.
Yes: in that that would be another check-off part of the normal election process.
No: in that the current election situation is anything but normal. For example:
2 – Multiple sworn affidavits from cyber security experts have been filed asserting computer manipulations of the 2020 Presidential election. These also could be affecting hundreds of thousands of votes (e.g., see here and here).
3 – Analyses have been done by independent statistical experts of 2020 Presidential election results in some swing states. Their conclusions are that hundreds of thousands of votes in those key states are highly suspect (e.g., see here and here).
4 – Only a few US counties have done a basic recount (e.g., here). It’s important to understand that a basic recount is little more than a rudimentary check of the math.
5 – ZERO counties in the US have done a forensic (or audited) recount of the 2020 presidential election. That type of recount verifies that every vote came from a legitimate citizen — and that there was only one vote counted per citizen. (Independent studies like this give an indication of the widespread corruption. One small Michigan precinct is doing a partial forensic audit, but result are withheld.)
6 – Certification of voting results by state legislatures is based on the assumptions that: a) the math is right, plus b) the results from all precincts are only votes cast by legitimate citizens, and only one vote per citizen. The critical important “b” assumption was not verified (via even a sample forensic audit) in ANY state.
7 – There is a difference between what citizens consider as evidence and what courts will consider as legal evidence. Here is an extensive crowd-sourced list of citizen-submitted evidence of 2020 election malfeasance. Here’s another.
8 – To my knowledge, all the 2020 election court cases adjudicated so far have been based on legal grounds — NOT factual grounds (e.g. whether the petitioner has legal standing, whether evidence is admissible or material, whether filing time constraints have been met, etc.).
9 – There are ZERO 2020 election court cases where a judge has mandated an investigation into any type of fraud (voting machine algorithms, duplicate votes from the same person, votes from deceased parties, illegally corrected votes, etc.).
10 – In an extremely rare case where a judge actually did look at 2020 election results for a single district, he ruled that election officials did nine (9) separate things that were in violation of the law! And that was in a run-of-the-mill district not known to have been compromised. (He also did not mandate any fraud investigation.)
So, if audited recounts are ever done, and if those end up proving that the results are different than reported (and “certified” by state legislatures), then there might be legal grounds for Electoral College voters to change (correct) their vote.
Hopefully some audited recounts — or even statistically sampled audited recounts — will be done between now and Inauguration Day.
If these aren’t conducted until after that time — and the Electoral College majority vote turns out to be wrong — than that will open a Pandora’s Box of complications.
This is NOT a partisan issue, as Americans of ALL political persuasion should want to ensure the integrity of our election process. If there’s nothing to hide then prove that there is no fire where there’s smoke.
Let’s all do what we can to get this right the first time, so that the fat lady can sing prior to Inauguration Day.
