25% of Mail-in Ballots disqualified in Brooklyn

Nothing to see here?!

According to the NY Post,

“A staggering 25% of mail-in ballots cast in Brooklyn for June’s primary elections were declared invalid, it was revealed on Tuesday, as Mayor Bill de Blasio called on the Board of Elections to shape up by November.

More than 120,000 absentee ballots were filed in Kings County for the June 23 primary but about 30,000 were initially disqualified — and it wasn’t the fault of the voters, according to Rodneyse Bichotte, head of the Brooklyn Democratic Party.

Bichotte — also a state assemblywoman whose district includes Flatbush, Ditmas Park and Midwood — said the disqualifying issues included a lack of postmark or late arrival.

The BOE was still untangling the mess six weeks after the primaries and was unable to provide hard citywide figures on Tuesday.”

It wasn’t that long ago when 19% of ballots in the Paterson New Jersey election were disqualified following accusations of ballot theft, voter fraud and intimidation. That occurred soon after it was reported that up to 700 Republican voters in one New Jersey township received ballots listing only Democrat candidates in the mail.

Any wonder Nancy Pelosi is so insistent on there being mass mail-in voting.

We wrote about the outcomes from the Carter-Baker Commission which highlighted that mail-in ballots posed the biggest risk for voter fraud.

Jerry Nadler’s strong view on mail-in ballots in 2004

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!

Democrat Congressman Jerry Nadler spoke to the dangers of fraud re mail-in paper ballots back in 2004. What a surprise he has changed his tune when it comes to a power grab in 2020?! After his “it’s a myth” comment when answering a question about the Portland riots, anything is believable.

Obama pushes mail-in ballots at John Lewis’ eulogy

Absolutely zero class. Since when has a eulogy been an appropriate platform for pushing mail-in ballots?

More voter fraud by Democrats

Yet more Democrats dealing in mail-in voter fraud. This time in Indiana, just days after Democrats in New Jersey were charged with electoral fraud using mail-in ballots.

68-year-old volunteer Janet Reed pre-checked Democrat on 400 ballots before sending them out.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi keeps saying there is nothing to worry about with mail-ins.

Sadly, even former Democrat President Jimmy Carter and former Republican Secretary of State James A. Baker did a bipartisan study into improving electoral processes. We wrote about it here. In short, the study noted:

“Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.

“While there is little evidence of fraud in Oregon where the entire state votes by mail absentee balloting in other states has been one of the major sources of fraud.”

“Vote by mail is however likely to increase the risks of fraud and of contested elections in other states where the population is more mobile where there is some history of troubled elections or where the safeguards for ballot integrity are weaker…One potential source of election fraud arises from inactive or ineligible voters left on voter registration lists. By one estimate, for example, there were over 181,000 dead people listed on the voter rolls in six swing states in the November 2004 elections including almost 65,000 dead people listed on the voter rolls in Florida.

Twitter trolls Trump with a CNN fact checker link

Social media is alight with Twitter’s bold move to add a ‘fact-check’ link (to CNN of all networks) to President Trump’s claim that mail-in voting encourages electoral fraud. Twitter argued his comment was “potentially misleading.

Two points:

1) if it was consistent, Twitter should add fact checker links to around 99% of the unsubstantiated bile that is posted everyday. Why single out POTUS other than to indulge their utter hatred of him?

2) in 2005, former President Jimmy Carter and Reagan’s former Chief of Staff James A. Baker conduct a commission on election reform.

With respect to mail-in voting, the study noted:

“Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.

The Carter-Baker Commission argued that national voter identification was needed to prevent real ballot fraud (especially as absentee voting could lead to double voting across states by submitting by mail and voting on election day) and to keep public confidence in the election process.

Trump has 80.9 million Twitter followers. We somehow think that fact-checking conducted by left-leaning social media platforms leaning on a reprehensible network like CNN is laughable given the shameless and glaring bias.

Note that Michael Moore’s documentary, “Planet of the Humans” has been taken down from YouTube after pressure from activists on the grounds of “copyright infringement”. Just like the two doctors that spoke out about coronavirus. That video was removed as well.

How wonderful we are able to rely on such platforms to tell us what we are allowed to think.

In conclusion, Twitter is walking on thin ice. If it starts to behave as a “media” outlet doling out opinions instead of being a mere provider of a social media platform, it may find itself wearing regulations that stifle its ability to operate. Bring it on. That would be a spectacular own goal.
