Georgia’s secretary of state announced the results of the signature match audit of ballots in Cobb County in order to quell fears of election fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger had been excoriated by many in the media and on social media for dismissing claims of voter fraud. On Dec. 14, he announced a signature match audit in order to reestablish Georgians’ faith in the state’s balloting system.

Two weeks later, that audit in Cobb County was completed.

Raffensperger said only two mismatched signatures were found among the more than 15,000 signatures audited. He said the inaccuracy came from a wife who signed the ballots for herself and her husband.

“It really shows you and should give voters confidence that there’s accuracy and integrity, and security, in the absentee ballot process so we’re really grateful for GBI’s support,” Raffensperger said to WSB-TV.

The signature match audit was the first of its kind in Georgia.

The audit involved state election investigators examining thousands of ballot envelopes and matching the signatures with those in public state records.

While Raffensperger defended the state’s ability to conduct the 2020 election in a fair and secure manner, he has advocated against Georgia’s no excuse absentee voting and wants restrictions on who can vote by absentee ballot.

“It’s a huge burden for the counties. In effect, what we are asking the counties to do is run three elections, one with absentee voting early voting and then Election Day,” Raffensperger explained.

In November, he defended the signature match system during an interview on MSNBC.

“Many people don’t realize that it requires you to do your signature twice, once for the application, we signature match then, and a second time when your ballot comes back in, then we’ll signature match that,” he explained.

President Donald Trump and his legal team continue to challenge the election results in court, with the latest one challenging the Wisconsin Supreme Court decision.

I don't think Cobb county was the one who had the problem. The ones they should have looked at are Fulton and Dekalb.

So disregard the multiple scans of the same ballots in secret ? What a bunch of HORSE SHIT

Why were only 15000 votes hand selected to count? I thought a "signature audit" was exactly that, an audit of signatures. We all saw the video evidence of stacks of ballots being run through multiple times. So, if we are supposed to buy into this garbage, here is some number crunching for you.... There were over 4 million votes cast in Georgia, out of those they say that 2 of the 15000 were not valid.... Well, let's suppose that out of every 15000 batch there are two invalid ballots. That means that 15,264.67 ballots were invalid in the state that biden supposedly won by 12000 votes.... Do they honestly think that conservatives are that ignorant? This guy is stepping down because they couldn't even come up with a legit signature count of hand picked ballots because of so much fraud being committed. Nice try though... lmao

I don't know what is going on here but I smell a RAT! This guy was never for Trump and I don't trust this idea of matching signature ballots!! What did they match them to??? More fraud voting?? What a joke! Its becoming an out right cry of crooked dealings between those that Hate Trump and still want to make deals with China, keep they hands out for more pork and lie to the people who have elected them. I believe if God doesn't intervene here..we all could be doomed to More corruption and back room deals, plus these evil,people will try to do anything to execute those that voted and supported Trump. Look at Mitch McConnell ....seems he is turning a blind eye and supporting the comrades on the other isle while getting voted back into that seat supported on the coat tails of our President Donald J Trump! Yep! You can see how many were Rhino's and jumping ship before it even gets ported! What a travesty! Our nation will be in a world of hurt unless God intervenes and that's what I have my money on.

@Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger you are a liar and a disgrace to our Country. I have watched every legislature meeting and the evidence is overwhelming. If i were you i would immediately release the ballots ask for in todays meeting so the truth will come out to ALL A|MERICANs who are being misled by the mainstream media. Or you will go down in history as the traitor you appear to be. How will you explain that to your children and grandchildren that you sold out our country? Do the right thing before it is too late. The legislature has the power of the electoral vote NOT YOU OR THE GOV so do the right thing before you go down in history as a traitor and you families history is FOREVER DESTROYED.

Yes, those absentee ballots are not the issue. The mail in ballots were. And do not require 2nd party signature. Since these ballots were mailed out, what signatures do they have as a reference?
PC_Bob December 31, 2020

Even if the signatures DO match the records, there are still ways to hack the count, as we saw in MI, PA and MI. When they pull the ballots out of the envelopes and switch them for others that they have smuggled in, there is NO way t 'verify' them! Maybe in those small districts, but not in the bigger cities and counties. We ALL saw the videos showing the ballots being run through the counting machines OVER and OVER and OVER again! Now, Tell ME that's fair and accurate!

Don't they get it. The majority of fraud was in the counting. By putting a virus in the voting system, a 2% conversion, addition or subtraction to some critical counties or precints or polling place, the election was tilt to the Democrats.

Well, we can now know just what will happen in the election on the 6th. Total stolen votes AGAIN. Something just has to be done. Same goes for Pennsylvania and the rest of the 6 or 7 states that cheated openly.

I don't believe one word of this article...lots of payoffs going on...we saw with our own eyes of them pulling out suitcases of ballots after everyone else has left......they must be all a part of the deep state....they do not want a civil war which is where we are heading if the truth is not applied....guaranteed it won't be pretty and it won't last long....

This entire election is a complete farce. We know there is ZERO objective oversight of this process. They have fought the GOP and anyone who demanded a completely transparent process. When you hide things, we know you're cheating. THERE IS NO OTHER POSSIBLE REASON. IN FACT: the hiding of anything IS ITSELF - CHEATING.

What about the two counties that Stacy Abraham’s sister, the federal judge in Georgia that blocked the verification of the voters in the two counties that allowed voters that no longer lived their to vote and just so happened to be where Stacy gathered ballots?

Yet independent reviews say way otherwise for the process... as even in any other election 'signature verification' in no way is this close to being found incorrect historically. He's lying.
Barry December 30, 2020

What a liar, I met a lady in Cobb County two days after the election who told me her husband’s vote changed on the voting machine four times from President Trump to dementia jo, she over heard me and a friend in a Kroger’s in Powder Springs, Ga. and walked over and told us his story, why would she do this if she wasn’t telling the TRUTH? Rassenberger & kemp should be in GITMO on trail for treason, those two pieces of crap are dirty!!!

When more votes happened than there were ballots? What then?
Jim McGrath December 30, 2020

All I know is that my signatures might look different at times, So it's hard to believe that every signature except 2 were a perfect match.

Only a few... huh...wonder if they checked to see if they were legally eligible to vote, was it totally random through out the state ... or just the big cities.. what was the total count for each Presidential candidate on the verification process... come on boys... stats...

Excuse me, but our small county did signature comparisons and we found 72 questionable signatures out of only 8000 voters. I'm just not buying this "audit" as reliable.
Chris Danford December 30, 2020

During the Georgia hearing today, an eye witness to this mess stated that the audit was in error because there were ballots where the signatures had not been previously verified as legitimate.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

The Democrats demonized President Trump for using the word ‘fight’. Trump’s attorneys responded today with a collage of clips from each of the Democrats in the room using the word ‘fight’.

This portion of today’s events on Capitol Hill was excellent. The Democrats claim that because President Trump used the word ‘fight’ in his speech on January 6th in Washington D.C. However, what every Democrat in that room forgot was that they too had used the word previously in political speech.

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
