A big thank you to everyone that attended our annual SCRP Lincoln / Reagan Day Dinner - It turned out to be another fantastic event with everyone having a good time and about 280 in attendance. A special thanks to all our amazing volunteers that made it happen and to Tim and Ronaye Lewis for providing one of the best venues in WA State!
August 2022 Primary Election results were not as expected with only a 40.43 % statewide voter turnout (according to the WA SOS website); however, there is good reason for optimism. The Republican line-up of candidates that made the top two advancing to the General Election is one of the strongest we have had in recent memory, both federally and locally. Congratulations!!!

The 2022 Primary Elections are giving Republicans Great Candidates Nationwide
In WA State there is much work to still do! After the Primary, Joe Kent is now the clear favorite to win the 3rd Congressional District, and Matt Larkin is now in position to flip the 8th Congressional District. Both candidates are amazing patriot Conservative warriors and will be incredible Representatives for our state. Only 19% of Independents voted in the WA Primary, if the "I''s and "R's" can turn out in November, then we can expect several other Republicans to be victorious.
In Arizona Kari Lake won the AZ GOP Governor primary, she is known for her tough stance on Election Integrity and on the southern border. Mark Finchem won SOS, Blake Masters won Senate and Abe Hamadeh won the AG Primary (all endorsed by Trump). As a state legislator, Finchem has introduced several election-related bills, including one that would make all ballots public records, searchable in an online database. Finchem also introduced several resolutions seeking to decertify the results of the 2020 election. Article
Liz Cheney's loss in the Wyoming Primary to Trump Endorsee Harriet Hageman was a massive win for the GOP. Cheney dug her own grave with the Republican party and her constituents for being among the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump and as co-chair of the House Sham Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol breach. Hageman trounced Cheney 66.3 % to 28.9 %, which is reportedly the fourth worst incumbent loss since 1968. Article

Election Integrity Updates: Last month I was asked to present WA State 2020 and 2022 election fraud / anomaly data by the Lindell team for the Moment of Truth Summit in Springfield, Missouri. I very much wanted to, but the Saturday, Aug 20 event was the same day as the Skagit GOP Lincoln / Reagan Day. I reached out to State Representative, deputy Sheriff and former Colonel Brad Klippert who accepted on short notice and exposed the data. More Here
Using Edison data, Draza Smith (Scientist and Engineer who has two master's degrees and holds 7 patients) says the WA State primary election and SOS race was manipulated via a controlling algorithm. Draza has explained the Edison data around the country and has analyzed dozens of elections in numerous states. MORE INFO HERE
WAKE UP "REPUBLICAN" CANDIDATES - Having several Republican candidates in a race plays right into the hands of the Democrats, as cheating can be easier done. I.e. if it just would have been Hobbs, Wagoner and Anderson in the SOS race, it becomes more difficult to find the needed phantom votes for Anderson if she never had the support (real votes) in the first place. The cheating has been going on in WA State for decades, and it is much easier for fraudsters using mail-in voting as the perfect way to commit the crime. With no access to Cast Vote Records and now with no audits allowed to verify elections due to the SOS amendment to WAC 434-335-260, it makes I-1505 The Voter Protection Act even more important. But do not lose faith, cheaters always eventually get caught!
The Moment of Truth Summit also had a major Whistle Blower, Clint Curtis, come forward that could very well lead to getting rid of the voting machines in many states - In fact, Alabama may be the first state to do so after the summit.
Video: Clint Curtis testimony to Congress
Also, Cast Vote Records (CVRs) were discussed in depth and at the end of the Summit, during the "Call to Action" it was advised for people in attendance to request CVRs for all 2020 elections before the 22 month statute runs out for Federal Elections. The Summit pointed out that CVR's can show proof of voting machine manipulation and possible election fraud. Most states have no problem giving the CVRs to the public for review. But of course in Washington State the corrupt Democrat Administrative State rules!
WE NEED TO SEE THE CAST VOTE RECORDS
What are Cast Vote Records (CVRs) and why are they so important? There are different types of CVRs. The CVR I am referring to is a report generated by the actual voting machines that shows the cumulative votes, and how they add up in series. They are records of all the votes for candidates and measures for all the ballots cast in an election. CVRs show ALL unidentified voter selections that were tabulated on one combined record listed in rows and columns. They are NOT ballots and are NOT ballot images. They are data sets of what the voter put on the ballot in a file, list, or spreadsheet format. They are listed in order by time of vote cast during the entire election. Here is an example of a CVR.
We have been asking most all WA State counties for CVRs for the past year and a half. The SOS is telling the counties to not give CVRs, saying it violates WAC 434-261-114 and White v. Skagit and Island / Clark County Court Cases. Here is a typical example of an answer we are getting from county auditors:
The term “Cast Vote Record” is a term of art with specific meaning under Washington State election law. The term is defined by WAC 434-261-114 (5) as the “record of all votes produced by a single voter in electronic form.” In other words, the Cast Vote Record is the electronic version and associated metadata that records the votes cast by voters.
RCW 29A.04.008(c) defines "ballot" as, "a physical or electronic record of the choices of an individual voter in a particular primary, general election, or special election." The cast vote record contains the choices of individual voters in electronic form and therefore constitutes an electronic copy of each voter's ballot under the definition set forth in RCW 29A.04.008(c).
We conclude that in Washington, all “ballots,” including copies, are exempt from production under the Public Records Act by Title 29A RCW—an “other statute.” The exemption is necessary to protect the “vital governmental function” of secret ballot elections. Under state election law, RCW 29A.60.110, 29A.60.125 and WAC 434-261-045, and the State Constitution, Article IV, Section 6, the records of a voter’s cast ballots are not public information. This was the clear holding of White v. Skagit County, 188 Wn.App. 886, 898 (2015) where the Court held:
In White v. Skagit County and Island County, Wn. App., No. 72028-7 (2015), the Court of Appeals Division I held that ballots are exempt in their entirety. Additionally, in White v. Clark Cty. II, 199 Wn. App. 929, 401 P.3d 375 (2017), the Washington Court of Appeals has held that RCW 29A.60.110 and WAC 434-261-045 “provide an ‘other statute’ exemption for tabulated ballots.” Id. at 934. Accordingly, your request for the cast vote record is denied pursuant to RCW 42.56.070 (1); RCW 29A.60.110 and WAC 434-261-045.
I completely disagree with the White court case rulings and the SOS / WA State County interpretation of the court case applying them to Public Records Requests for CVRs. And CVRs are NOT even ballots or ballot images.
When access to CVRs is prohibited, transparency, public oversight, and the public's right to validate free and fair elections are gone.
WHY ARE THEY HIDING THE CVRs FROM US?
Our state SOS and county auditor should allow the CVR data to be provided if there is nothing to hide. CVRs are important election records and could show if county voting machines were accurate or if any election results were manipulated. CVRs should exactly match and verify the reported county and state SOS reported vote totals.
WITHOUT CVR DATA WE MUST RELY ON THE “EDISON DATA”
Draza Smith works closely with Jeffery O’Donnell (featured in Selection Code and who presented CVR data at the MOT Summit). Most recently Draza has presented very compelling Edison data showing the 2022 WA State SOS race was controlled and manipulated via an algorithm.
As you can see in the below graph looking at the total number of reported votes, the total votes for the top 3 candidates came in remarkably proportional over time. Note that Hobbs’ votes are plotted against the second y-axis, since the magnitude was greater.
Anderson (Blue) and Wagoner (Red) vote totals are on the left-side column. Hobbs’ (Purple) vote totals are on the right-side column. The ratios used in the algorithm showed that the Anderson, Wagoner and Hobbs’ votes paralleled each other. These voting patterns are not normal representations of human behavior. The nature of the votes received should be random over time. The Anderson and Hobbs ratios are virtually an exact match. This is impossible without a computer algorithm working in the election!
Comparing the Secretary of State votes to those of the House Congressional Race 3 (below graph), the votes are also very proportional between Perez and Herrera-Beutler, but Kent’s ratio diverges and climbs over time. This effect would be seen if an abnormal number of votes for Herrera-Beutler were present in the initial ballots counted and then the remainder of the ballots followed the Law of Large Numbers to a ratio higher than the initial count described. Kent's Victory over Herrera-Beutler demonstartes why it is so important to never give up and to vote!
Edison Research is the company that provides the “Edison data “which are real-time election updates from individual states and the source of election data for the news reports. According to the Edison Research Website: Since 2004, Edison Research has been the sole provider of Election Day data to the National Election Pool, consisting of ABC News, CBS News, CNN, and NBC News.
Draza has told me that in most all her analyses the CVRs and Edison data have large disparities, showing evidence of manipulation of voting machines using controlled algorithms. CVR data is not necessarily the holy grail, as "ballot box stuffing" (like what 2,000 Mules showed), and the potential altering of ballot images (which is now understood to be very easily done) still would not necessarily be detected. However, it is important to note that in Georgia Garland Favorito was able to compare the CVR to ballot images and expose time stamp manipulations with the image files and thousands of ballot image files being modified or replaced.
Other states like California, Oregon, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, etc. have no problem providing Cast Vote Records to the public. Disclosing CVRs via a Public Records Request does NOT violate the State Constitution.
WA STATE CONSTITUTION ART 6 SEC. 6 BALLOT. All elections shall be by ballot. The legislature shall provide for such method of voting as will secure to every elector absolute secrecy in PREPARING AND DEPOSITING HIS BALLOT.
In actuality, Cast Vote Records DO provide ALL voters Absolute Secrecy in Preparing and Depositing their Ballots. For more on this see my article "WASHINGTON STATE ELECTIONS FIASCO"
STANDING: Legal standing means a personal and substantial interest in the case such that the party has sustained direct injury as a result of the governmental act that is being challenged.
You’ve heard it said “Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.” What about those who code the vote? What if our leaders aren’t actually being elected by us, but instead selected? For over 35 years Laura Logan has been on the front lines of history’s deadliest conflicts. Her investigation goes to the heart of the current Information War, revealing yet another facet in the ever-unfolding saga of election fraud, demonstrating the role of the machines in stealing our vote. WATCH SELECTION CODE HERE
A RED WAVE - EXCEPT WHEN AND WHERE THERE IS MAIL-IN-VOTING: Joe Kent's Congressional District 3 Race was the outlier and helped to expose the corruption with mail-in voting. Kent and his campaign worked very hard knocking on thousands of doors and holding over 220 town halls. He outworked the fraud and told his grass roots army of supporters to wait until election day to turn in their ballots (IN PERSON) to their local auditor. Kent knows that vote manipulation is being done by the fraudsters using the mail-in ballots ahead of time, and with an election-day late surge turnout, the cheaters have no way of knowing how many fraudulent ballots to infuse into the election. This strategy implemented by Kent and his campaign team worked well, overwhelmed the system and broke the algorithm being used by the cheaters. In AZ Kari Lake and Mark Finchem used the exact same messaging to their supporters and the strategy worked to perfection. Aug 6 Video.
Fantastic job by Joe Kent, Mark Finchem and Kari Lake. The cheat is being exposed!
What We Learned: For the best chance to win in Democrat controlled WA State, Vote late, not early, on election-day, if possible in person at the County Elections office. Never give up, no matter how bad it looks. Eventually cheaters will get caught, they always do!
Why Mail-in Ballots are Susceptible to Fraud:
Many states don’t even require any form of verification of the ballot. The lack of verification makes it easy to get mail-in ballots for people that are not voting. Fraudsters fill it out, forge signatures and send in. In most states there is literally no way to stop this.
All states need to require a copy of the voter's driver's license or voter ID card with the ballot. An affidavit should be signed verifying the ballot and who is filling it out to the best of their knowledge and of sound mind – or something along those lines to prevent people from filling out someone else’s ballot under the penalty of perjury.
Don’t accept ballots after Election Day…Do not accept mail-in ballots that are post-marked after the election. Many states have extended the deadline for people to get their absentee ballots in. That’s absolutely ridiculous and needs to stop.
Some states even changed laws to send mail-in ballots to all registered voters even if they didn’t request one. So why could they do that, but not change the state laws that say they can’t start counting mail-in ballots early? This would ensure all votes are not only counted by election night, but also provide plenty of time to scrutinize each mail-in ballot to confirm they’re legitimate and meet standards.
Drop off, not mail…Who knows how many ballots got lost in the mail? Sadly, we are now seeing a number of USPS employees coming forward blowing the whistle on the company's bias. The way to fix that is to not allow ballots to be mailed in. Increase the number of secure voter drop boxes across the country and make that the only way to turn in absentee ballots.
Mail-in ballots are extremely vulnerable to fraud. Voters send in their ballots and they magically disappear and never get counted. They get lost in the mail. The whole process is just lacking.
Absentee ballots should only be offered to those who are disabled. For example, anyone with a handicap parking permit can get an absentee ballot if requested. Also, those who are stuck in the hospital or members of the military should also be the only ones who get an absentee ballot.
Declare Election Day a federal holiday so people can be off work and actually go vote. Getting rid of mail-in ballots may sound extreme, but let’s be clear here, we’re talking about our election. That is something that dictates the future of our country, the safety of Americans, healthcare, taxes, foreign affairs and beyond, I think we can spend one day on America's future. Article
Time to Get Rid of the Voting Machines: Under current WA State election law using electronic scanners, voting machines, sorters and tabulators we have been legally denied the right to find out precisely how the vote is counted.
How can this be? After all, everybody knows that each aspect of the vote-count is officially conducted by the government under the microscopic scrutiny of thousands of party officials, anxious candidates, poll workers, curious voters and the media, right?
Not exactly. The counting of almost 70% of our votes is done inside a literal and figurative black box by a technical process that you have no legal right to inspect. The results from that black box are then counted by local election officials who send their results to the state where they are later "certified" as accurate and honest.
None of the certifying officials are the actual "vote-counters" at the board of canvassers, and no government officials at any other level have oversight of the thousands of votes counted inside these computers.
Thus, they have no legitimate means of "certifying" that the results are accurate and honest. In fact, in numerous interviews, we found that no official at state, county, city or township levels has had any meaningful oversight (or even a clear understanding) of the vote-counting process at the crucial level of the election computers in each jurisdiction. Who does? A handful of computer vote-counting companies which have their central role in counting the vote. Article
We Must Bring Back Transparency to the Election Process. The current computerized election system has numerous drawbacks that restrict transparency. Additionally, when voting machine vendors can erase elections records with "Software Updates," it makes it challenging to catch potential fraud. The most obvious solution is to go back to precinct level same day voting, hand counting of paper ballots, and voter ID which is the way many other countries do it, because of the advantages it brings.
The present mail-in voting system requires drawn out elections over several weeks which allows for more opportunity for nefarious activity to occur. This contributes to a lack of transparency for the public. Hand counting allows for one day elections' significantly reducing this problem.
Black box voting is what happens with computerized election systems because the vendors of the systems are private companies insisting on protecting their intellectual property rights by deleting election records and withholding software source code. Hand counting gives full transparency and eliminates the need for voting machines and their vendors with lucrative contracts; Clear Ballot, Dominion, ES&S, Hart InterCivic, etc. to control the process.
Centralized electronic voter rolls allow for nefarious activity that, combined with computerized systems, are fraught with peril, obscuring transparency to the public. Hand counting at the precinct level would greatly reduce this problem as ballots would be brought to the precinct voting center by the voter with ID, greatly reducing, if not eliminating, ghost voting, duplicate voting, and noncitizen voting.
The complexity of the computerized elections system has layers upon layers of complexity and is a great hindrance to transparency for the public. Only those who are highly trained in the multiple aspects of the system can grasp what’s going on. And many of these highly trained individuals will admit that the complexity hampers even the highly trained from gaining access to the system in a meaningful way in order to be able to have a transparent view of the system. This complexity is also a hindrance to gaining public trust of the system. Hand counting eliminates this complexity and returns us to a system that is easily understood by the public in general.
Signature verification is done by staff who, in comparison with the professionally trained, get minimal training, and are under pressure to make evaluations in as little as 5 seconds per signature. This would arguably be difficult for the professionally trained to do. Hand counting totally eliminates this aspect of the election process.
Also, the (manual) signature verification process they follow is heavily dependent on VoteWA. Almost every aspect of the signature verification is done in VoteWA - since both the registration signatures and the uploaded signatures from the incoming ballots (via the Agilis machines which are connected to the internet) are all stored in VoteWA. The browser-based VoteWA app shows voter information (name, voter ID, ballot ID, DOB), the signature on the ballot, and signatures from VoteWA - including all historical registration signatures for the voter (last one on top) and signatures of other household members (same address - determined by 'research') in case someone in the same household 'accidentally' signed the wrong ballot return envelope.
The "Jungle" Primary has Got to Go: The "Top 2 Jungle Primary " is a terrible way to conduct elections, especially in swing districts, statewide and national races. All the cheaters have to do is make sure A Democrat and RINO finish in the top 2. The Jungle Primary allows members of one political party to vote in their rival party’s contest in the hopes of encouraging the nomination of the weakest candidate.
We can easily solve this problem by going back to a "Caucus" and/or a "Closed Primary" system where the Republicans and the Democrats hold their own primary elections to pick their top candidate to advance to the general election. We need to follow the lead of Arizona and other states that conduct elections in this manner, it is the preferred way to pick the best candidate, is much farer and works very well!
OF NOTE: Caucuses are systems of local meetings in which party members decide which candidate to support, voting is transparent and often conducted by a show of hands or other public display. Primarily elections are held by secret ballot, like the general election process.
Republicans Must Turn Out to Vote: Statewide in the primary election we only had a 40% voter turnout. This is way too low; people must get motivated to vote. Politically we are in Epic Biblical Times; if people believe that cheating and election rigging is happening, then to combat it we need to get the vote out even more and overwhelm the system. Joe Kent proved that this is possible!
NO More Circular Firing Squads: Until Republicans can start being better TEAM players, they are going to keep getting disappointed with election results. Republicans must learn from their mistakes quickly and need to figure out how to (early on) rally around and support the best candidate that has the best chance to win. Egos absolutely must step aside. If there is already a good candidate in the race that can win DO NOT MAKE THE SELFISH CATASTROPHIC MISTAKE OF FILING FOR OFFICE!!! I.e., in the very Conservative 4th Congressional District we had a Democrat, a RINO and 6 Conservative candidates in the 2022 primary. Most obviously the RINO and Dem made it into the top 2. A similar thing happened in the 3rd Congressional District race which made it very difficult for Joe Kent to prevail. The SOS race was the biggest disappointment, as Senator Keith Wagoner (a very well qualified candidate) filed with the PDC in 2021; then after the fact 3 other "Republicans" made the conscious choice to file and run against him, target him and split the vote. These are catastrophic unforced errors that many saw coming (including myself). Truly amazing that the egos that filed to run against Keith did not have the foresight to see it, this was an abomination and can never be allowed to happen again. This has put our state in peril and was completely unfair to the Republican voting constituents.
Early Support/ Endorsements for Republican Candidates: The Washington State Republican Party and other County GOP's need to have a "Caucus" in January or February of each year to pick the best candidate for each upcoming race that CAN ACTUALLY WIN THE GENERAL ELECTION.
Term Limits: It is absolutely ridiculous for career politicians to be in office for literally decades. We should limit terms to 8 years (or two terms) per office. If an elected official terms out and wants to continue to be a public servant, then that individual can run for another office. Other states use this method with great success.
Increase Election Integrity Efforts: TRUE Election Integrity continues to be a growing movement, is ramping up, and now is a permanent long term program. TRUE EI Patriot TEAM players are just beginning to help solve the many issues, and need to be working with county auditors. Election Observing needs to be paramount with many trained and experienced observers as possible.
The Silent Majority Foundation sent litigation hold notices (letters demanding that certain records be retained under threat of litigation) to 25 Washington county auditors related to 2020 election data. This data included IP addresses and access times for the voting software in each county. Importantly, where this information was previously obtained, it appeared that 3rd parties were accessing the software, which brings up the question of security of these systems. SMF received responses from several of these auditors that they’re seeking the data from software vendors and that they’re implementing new records retention policies, so we’re already making a difference! Additionally, SMF advised these auditors that we will be seeking the same data for the 2022 primary elections (August 2022) and have advised that they preserve this data for that reason. SMF is hoping that as they review the data that the information will show nothing of concern......
The 25 Counties Are: Asotin, Benton, Clallam, Columbia, Cowlitz, Douglas, Ferry, Franklin, Garfield, Grant, Grays Harbor, Island, King, Kitsap, Lewis, Mason, Okanagan, Pacific, San Juan, Skagit, Skamania, Snohomish, Stevens, Whatcom and Yakima Counties.
* A litigation "Hold" Letter / Notice is written correspondence directing an entity or an individual to preserve documents and data that may be relevant to a threatened or pending litigation or an official investigation.
Additionally, the Election Assistance Commission requires voting systems and tabulation equipment to create a “real-time audit log” which records the events of an election. Read the EAC Decision on Request for Interpretation (Audit Logs) for details on what logging is required.
Deleting these elections records violates the Civil Rights Act of 1960, now codified at 52 U.S.C. §§ 20701-20706, which governs certain “Federal election records.” Section 301 of the Act requires state and local election officials to “retain and preserve” all records relating to any “act requisite to voting” for twenty-two months after the conduct of “any general, special, or primary election” at which citizens vote for “President, Vice President, presidential elector, Member of the Senate, [or] Member of the House of Representatives,” 52 U.S.C. § 20701. This also violates RCW 29A.60.110, WAC 434-262-200 and WAC 434-261-045.
The materials covered by Section 301 extend beyond “papers” to include other “records.” Jurisdictions must therefore also retain and preserve records created in digital or electronic form.
Additionally, the Election Assistance Commission requires voting systems and tabulation equipment to create a “real-time audit log” which records the events of an election. Read the EAC Decision on Request for Interpretation (Audit Logs) for details on what logging is required.
According to federal law, it is the custodian of the records that has the obligation to hold on to them for the 22-month retention period. The county Auditor is the custodian of the election records. However, it was the vendors who deleted or “wiped” the logs.
It’s certainly possible some people in the counties may have known what was going on and even participated in carrying it out. However, it appears the Auditors and election staff did not intentionally allow these records to be deleted.
They were put in a vulnerable position by the vendors. Unfortunately, some of them have been taken advantage of and have been thrown under the bus by the vendor. They have broken federal law, as a result of the vendor’s “scheduled upgrade”.
The vendor has to absolutely be aware that records would be deleted. In at least the ClearVote manual, they state specifically that a back up needs to be performed and some specific logs must also be exported prior to an upgrade. Yet this was ignored.
Some counties have shown remorse for the deleted logs. Others have offered a different log, stating it shows the same information as the log we asked for. This is simply not the case.
The log they are offering doesn’t show any log-ins to the scan server, unauthorized access, and other important events. It is clear by their response that they either have no idea what is on the logs, or how the system really works. Or they do know, and they are underestimating Election Integrity data analysts' knowledge of the system.
OF NOTE: Some counties were able to provide the requested 2020 logs. Turns out Pierce County viewed the vote totals early. RCW 29A.40.110 states nobody is to view the vote totals until 8pm on election-day. At 6:01pm on 11/3/2020, Pierce County turned on the “display vote totals” feature. They created a report and exported the report. Then they turned off the “display vote totals” again and left it that way until 8pm, when they turned it back on again, to report the official results up to that point. Article
REMINDER - FINAL 2021 SKAGIT VOTER INTEGRITY PROJECT NUMBERS: SVIP Canvassing Volunteers found a total of 1,632 Voter Anomalies and have 1,937 Signed Affidavits. SKAGIT VOTER INTEGRITY PROJECT SUMMARY REPORT (September, 2021)
Several WA State Whistle Blowers Come Forward:
Spring 2022 WA State House Republican Extensive Polling clearly showed that Republicans were up comfortably by 5 % -10% in 11 of the 14 legislative districts that were considered "in play" for the 2022 elections. But in the primary there was no Red Wave for Republicans. Are the cheaters making a blue wave when all indicators and logic shows us there was supposed to be a red wave, by stuffing the ballot box with phantom votes??? Very hard to believe that voters are not voting their pocketbook like they always had in the past...
MORE WA STATE ELECTION NIGHT ANOMALIES
The "total ballots counted by county" goes down substantially at the 2nd timestamp on election day:
At 8:20 PM 1,018,392 Total ballots counted across the state.
At 8:36 PM 924,318 Total ballots counted across the state.
At 8:45 PM 1,045,266 Total ballots counted across the state.
In Sec of State race:
At 8:20 PM 917,897 Total votes cast across the state.
At 8:36 PM 889,640 Total votes cast across the state.
At 8:45 PM 910,959 Total votes cast across the state.
If you calculate the percentage of voters (ballots) that included a vote for Sec of State for each of the 3 reporting times:
At 8:20 PM 90.13% of ballots cast a vote in SOS race
At 8:36 PM 96.25% of ballots cast a vote in SOS race
At 8:45 PM 87.15% of ballots cast a vote in SOS race
These numbers and percentages do not make any sense. This is unacceptable. Is this proof of Vote Manipulation or are these just numerous Admin / Data input errors? How do you take away votes but percentages of the ballots cast show inverse ratios???
OTHER 2022 PRIMARY ELECTION ANOMALIES!
In the graph below are the results for the 2022 Primary Election in Cowlitz County. The graph compares the Congressional District 3 Race and the US Senate Race. Total Republican vs Total Democrat cumulative vote totals
There is no way that many more voters are going to vote for Congress but not US Senate. Appears Tiffany may have also had a controlling algorithm stifling her votes.......Or is Murray potentially being artificially boosted???
MORE EVIDENCE: The below graph shows the margin of victory per batch. Each verticle line is a batch. Red line means Republican win, blue line means a Dem win for the batch. The longer the line, the higher the margin of victory for each batch. These are all Cowlitz County. The top graph is the US Senator race, middle one is SOS, bottom one is US Rep. These are the total D votes - total R votes for each batch. How is there such a discrepancy between the races in the same county, from the same voters?
Spokane County 2022 Primary Election "Risk Limiting Audit" (RLA) Sham.
For the 2021 elections WA State had a pilot program in 9 counties implementing "Risk Limiting Audits" (RLA). According to the WA SOS, a RLA is a post-election audit that ensures election results match what the voters selected. Problem being, in the RLA software program called Arlo, there is an algorithm connected to all the ballot images from the election, the software program tells the elections officials which ballots to pull to "audit" the election.
In Nov. 2019, the US Department of Homeland Security announced it would partner with Voting Works to Pilot the use of its Arlo vote verification software in the six key battleground states during the Nov. 2020 election. Arlo is touted as being able to ensure the outcome of an election is statistically likely and is being promoted through Voting Works (a 501 non-profit). Voting Works was created by the left-leaning Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), a major donor is George Soros through his Foundation to Promote Open Society.
These types of "audits" are not genuine audits and do nothing to verify if the ballots themselves are counterfeit.
BUT WAIT... IT GETS WORSE: The plan in some WA counties is to replace the current “Random Batch Audits” (which are almost as bad, but at least have a human element) with the new “Risk Limiting Audits.” Depending on how close the election is (only about 1/10 of 1% of election results are checked) ballot images from the election are used to determine which ballots the election officials are to select to verify the election.
I.e., Thurston County election observers in a RLA reported that in a Nov 2021 election of 60,000 + votes counted, only 63 ballots were checked via the RLA Arlo program.
If elections can have predetermined outcomes via ballot box stuffing (like 2,000 Mules showed) and computer algorithms controlling the outcome of the election, like many have shown and believe (Jovan Pulitzer, Dr. Frank, Draza Smith, Jeffrey O'DonnellProfessor David Clements Colonel Shawn Smith, Joe Kent and others) then the RLA could easily be “rigged audits” and potentially part of a cover up for an election, as the human element is now taken out of the equation.
OF NOTE: The current "Random Batch Audits" are also not true "audits" and only look at a very small percentage of ballots / ballot images; in most WA State Counties it is 6 batches of 50 per batch (300 ballots total).
BACK TO WHAT JUST HAPPENED IN SPOKANE COUNTY: The 3rd Legislative District Position 2 race was randomly selected by the SOS. It was to be an "audit" for the race, but only an "audit" (ballot comparison) on the 2nd and 3rd place candidates in a three candidate race – not the leading candidate.
Through the ARLO Software Algorithm Program a "random" sample size of 71 total ballots were were chosen to audit. 39,342 ballots were cast in the 3rd Leg. race. 144,334 total ballots were cast county wide.
The RLA process resulted in about 45 ballots being selected that were NOT in the 3rd Legislative District, but were in other legislative districts within Spokane County. Meaning about only 26 ballots were audited for the actual Leg 3 race. In fact, no ballots "audited' had a vote for the candidate in the 3rd position.
PROBLEM #1: Why would you "audit" a race and not "audit" ANY votes for the leading candidate in the race?
PROBLEM #2: Why would you audit a race and not audit ANY votes for the 3rd place candidate in the race?
PROBLEM #3: Spokane County includes 5 Legislative Districts - The Legislative District 3 RLA had about 45 of 71 ballots chosen to audit that were NOT in Legislative District 3.
PROBLEM #4: How can an audit of 21 ballots in the 3rd Leg District Pos 2 race, that includes no ballots for the first or third place candidate in the race, be in any way considered an audit?
PROBLEM #5: Why would you audit ballots from all over the county outside the 3rd district for a 3rd district race?
PROBLEM #6 Election observers were not allowed to witness the physical ballots or the imaged ballots, side by side.
PROBLEM #7: All Cast Vote Record (CVR) data from the RLA was EMAILED to the ARLO RLA Team in Colorado to evaluate the process.
PROBLEM #8: Spokane County elections observers were not allowed to have a copy of the RLA report to see the composition of the RLA process. The election observers were not allowed to review the mathematical formulas supporting the plan of the RLA, nor were they allowed to be shown calculations on how the race and candidates were determined. When asked why they could not get a copy of the report, they were told "Because we can't give you access to Cast Vote Records" and "You have to Trust Us."
PROBLEM #9: When the Spokane elections observers asked Democrat Auditor Vicki Dalton about this process, she doubled down and said, "This is a 'True Audit'."
OF NOTE: Washington State is one of the only state in the country where Cast Vote Record (CVR) data is not available to the public.
OF CONCERN: Auditor Dalton has chosen to eliminate the Random Batch Audit and replace with the Risk Limiting Audit for Spokane County. This "Sham" Risk Limiting Audit that was just conducted in Spokane County is supposed to give us full confidence and faith that all the 2022 Spokane County primary elections were conducted fairly and honestly........
OTHER ISSUES: Scientific Assumption: By design the RLA is to be preceded by an Audit Trail of the Election System. There is none.
* Election observers were not allowed to have an “observable event” in regards to the RLA which in turn discredits the science behind the event, so that it “lacks fidelity."
* All Cast Vote Record (CVR) data and images were made available via password to the ARLO team in Colorado, the SOS and Audit team members, showing the Election System is connected to the internet.
COLORADO: El Paso County, CO Candidates Keep Fighting Election Fraud In Recent Primary. The fight continues in Colorado against election fraud, and especially in El Paso County where the ‘logic and accuracy test’ spectacularly failed recently with the election machines, highlighting the corrupt GOP primary election.
Patriots are still fighting for truth, and free and fair elections.
“All the Grassroots Conservative candidates petitioned for the recount, however an unreasonable amount of over $20K per candidate was requested for the candidates to pay El Paso County Clerk’s Office. 3 of the candidates were able to pay the exorbitant amount, but several came shy and are in a separate legal battle to challenge the requested amounts.”
ARIZONA: Finchem, Masters Complete Arizona Sweep For Trump Against Establishment State Representative Mark Finchem easily won the GOP primary for the Arizona Secretary of State’s office. Blake Masters also won the primary for the U.S. Senate against corrupt AG Mark Brnovich. Along with Kari Lake’s probable win, and victories in down ballot races, President Trump looks to take a clean sweep against the GOP Establishment. Election fraud will be an issue front and center in this contest as trust is low in the GOP Establishment, and corrupt Democrat leaders in the state.

CALIFORNIA: The campaign to recall Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón will review the signatures that were rejected by county officials, a spokesperson told Breitbart News, one day after enough signatures were rejected to defeat the recall effort.
Gascón, who took office in December 2020 after being elected with the help of millions of dollars in spending by left-wing billionaire George Soros, has pursued radical “reform” policies that many voters blame for a surge of violent crime in L.A. He is one of 75 “progressive” prosecutors Soros has installed across the country.
In July, the recall campaign handed in 26% more than the required target of 566,857 signatures. But on Monday, county officials claimed that 27% of the signatures had been invalid for a variety of reasons, causing the recall effort to fail. Article
LOUISANIA: Louisiana Secretary of State Leads the Nation – Ends ERIC in State and Creates Directive to Keep 2020 Election Materials.

KANSAS: It Happened Again: Cherokee County, Kansas Election Results Reversed After “Vote Flip” Discovered: Just like Antrim County, Dekalb County, Williamson County, Windham, NH. The list goes on and on and on of jurisdictions that have some “human error” or “technical glitch” that causes votes to flip, change or swap.
Enter our latest example: Cherokee County, Kansas. Not to be confused with Cherokee County, GA that recently went against the will of their constituents by refusing to conduct a hand recount and sided with highly questionable legal guidance from a conflicted attorney who used to work for the Secretary of States Office that is being called into question.
Cherokee County, KS’s post election audit discovered that the thumb drives used in the election flipped the votes cast for District 1 County Commissioner Myra Frazier and instead gave them to her opponent, Lance Nichols, who was initially declared the winner. Article
Vote by Mail Is the Worst Way to Run an Election - 2020 was the first time an election was conducted by mass vote-by-mail - it was a train wreck. According to federal data, election officials do not know what happened to nearly 15 million mail ballots in 2020. Some of these ballots were blowing in the winds on Nevada roads, and some were in stacks on apartment lobby floors. Some ended up in landfills.
No surprise considering that the USPS aspired to a 95% success rate in getting election mail delivered on time. Put another way, the post office was content with a 5% failure rate. Another 1.1 million mail ballots were returned as undeliverable, meaning they went to the wrong address and never reached the intended recipient. This reveals a whole other problem of states not having accurate up to date voter rolls. Article
Election Integrity: Voters Favor Arizona-Style ‘Audits’ - Concerns about election cheating remain high, and a majority of voters favor the procedure by which Arizona “audited” disputed 2020 presidential election results in Maricopa County.

Only 23% are against ballot reviews, while another 21% are not sure. 80%of likely voters believe the issue of election integrity will be important in this year's congressional elections, including 59% who think the issue will be Very Important. Just 16% don’t think election integrity will be an important issue in the November midterms. Article
‘The Hammer’ And ‘Scorecard’: Weapons Of Mass (Vote) Manipulation - In Feb 2009, the Obama administration commandeered a powerful supercomputer system known as THE HAMMER - THE HAMMER includes an exploit application known as SCORECARD that is capable of hacking into elections and stealing the vote, according to CIA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis Montgomery, who designed and built THE HAMMER.
THE WHISTLEBLOWER TAPES, confidential audio recordings released by U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow’s courtroom in November 2015, revealed that SCORECARD was deployed by the Obama team against Florida election computers to steal the 2012 presidential election on behalf of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
SCORECARD is now being activated to steal the vote on behalf of Joe Biden once again. Biden utilized THE HAMMER and SCORECARD while running for Vice President in 2012. Votes were again stolen on Joe Biden’s behalf in 2020.
This time, SCORECARD is stealing votes in Florida, Georgia, Texas, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, and other states according to Montgomery.
SCORECARD steals elections by tampering with the computers at the transfer points of state election computer systems and outside third party election data vaults as votes are being transferred. Article
A forensic audit report of Dominion voting machines in Michigan’s Antrim County, which received national attention after it was discovered that a “computer glitch” “flipped” 6,000 votes for President Donald Trump to Joe Biden, was released after a judge allowed the report to be unsealed. The report concluded: “That the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” the audit report charged. “The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud.” Article
Democratic Operatives Control Voter Rolls In 31 States. The ERIC voter-roll management system used by 31 states and the District of Columbia has politically compromised ties, according to a new report by independent research group Verity Vote.
The Electronic Registration Information Center, or ERIC, was sold to states as a quick and easy way to update their voter rolls. Started in 2012 by far-left activist David Becker and the left-leaning Pew Charitable Trusts, the program is ostensibly run by the member states themselves. But as public records show, Democratic operatives are working overtime under the cover of ERIC to accomplish their partisan goals and drive Democratic voter turnout. Becker was a Justice Department attorney whom colleagues remember as a “hard-core leftist” who “couldn’t stand Conservatives.” ERIC's left-wing ties have long concerned Republican state officials participating in ERIC. Before Becker started ERIC, he worked as a lobbyist for People for the American Way, a George Soros-funded advocacy group best known for the Right Wing Watch project, a website that catalogs and attacks conservative politicians and movements.

We just had an attack on our country - The FBI raid of a former President's home has never happened in the history of our country. The radical left showed the corrupt lengths they will go to in order to stop President Trump from running in '24, but as Trump has always said, "In reality they're not after me, they're after you. I'm just in the way."
The same corrupt FBI and DOJ that cooked up the Russian Collusion Hoax struck again. This time, to a whole new level. The weaponization of the government against political opponents and its citizens cannot stand. These are dark times for our nation. We the people are fed up and angry as hell - Below are related articles to the subject:
Judicial Watch Files Motion To Unseal FBI Warrant Used To Raid Trump’s Mar-A-Lago Residence: “The seditious Obama-Biden and Deep State campaign can spy on and abuse Trump is the worst, again, government corruption scandal in American history,” Fitton asserted. “And to make matter worst, the Biden DOJ simply refuses to release what are obviously smoke-and-gun documents, because they wouldn’t keep them quiet otherwise, about its corruption that the American people have an absolute right to see.” Tom Fitton
Trump Says FBI Would Not Let Lawyers Near Areas. The FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago.

Liz Wheeler said, "The FBI raid was not only gross abuse of power targeting Trump…The warrant allowed the FBI to seize literally every piece of paper Trump ever saw as POTUS…And the FBI seized attorney-client privileged & executive privileges docs…Which means the FBI broke the law."
The payback for Mar-a-Lago will be brutal. Trump derangement syndrome has a curious way of scrambling coherent thought. Witness the Democratic-media complex’s blind insistence the Justice Department raid on Donald Trump’s home is just and necessary—rather than a dangerous move for their party and the republic.

LD 39 Carolyn Eslick visit to WSU Animal Disease Biotech Facility July 20th was fascinating. Carolyn is reporting "Dr Margaret Wild was a great host and is very open to others visiting the research lab. We spent an hour in her office going over the research project. I was first most fascinated with the Washington Map that showed the locations throughout the State that reported and confirmed Hoof Rot. It is very prevalent in Southwest Washington which is where it was first detected. But is all over the State."
The Elk Hoof Disease Report to the Legislature gives a full report of what they have completed since receiving the passing of Senate Bill 5474 in 2017 with a budget of $1,169,900. vmp.vetmed.wsu.edu/research/elk-hoof-disease
"This disease has the potential to devastate Washington's elk population and because of the interaction of wild elk with domestic livestock, it is also of concern by other Washington stakeholders including the livestock industry."
Environmental transmission study - "These preliminary results indicate that TAHD can be transmitted through soil contaminated with affected hooves."
A new student is now working on research on disease ecology and spatial epidemiology of Treponema (TAHD) a bacterium. The objective of this work is to understand why the disease occurs where it does and to help us understand if predisposing factors, like environmental conditions or human alterations, are important in disease occurrence.
Carolyn is also reporting that Dr. Wild is more concerned about Chronic Waste Disease. It is in 29 states and is now as close to us as Idaho. It kills within 18 months to 2 years. It's a protein that infects Elk and deer. The death is terrible. The animal wastes away and dies; she compared it to Alzheimer's in humans.
$6.5 Billion Natural Gas Tax Which Will Increase Household Energy Bills
The bill imposes a regressive tax on American oil and gas development. The tax will drive up the cost of household energy bills. The Congressional Budget Office estimates the natural gas tax will increase taxes by $6.5 billion.
The tax hike violates President Biden’s tax pledge to any American making less than $400,000 per year. Biden administration officials have repeatedly admitted taxes that raise consumer energy prices are in violation of President Biden’s $400,000 tax pledge.
A letter to Congress from the American Gas Association warned that the methane tax would amount to a 17% increase on an average family’s natural gas bill. Democrats have included a tax in the bill despite retail prices for energy surpassing multi-year highs in the United States.
$12 Billion Crude Oil Tax Which Will Increase Household Costs
With gas averaging more than $4.00 per gallon across the country and only weeks removed from record-high prices, Democrats have included a 16.4 cents-per-barrel tax on crude oil and imported petroleum products that will be passed on to consumers in the form of higher gas prices.
The tax hike violates President Biden’s tax pledge to any American making less than $400,000 per year.
As noted above, Biden administration officials have repeatedly admitted taxes that raise consumer energy prices are in violation of President Biden’s $400,000 tax pledge.
As if it weren’t bad enough, Democrats have pegged their oil tax increase to inflation. As inflation increases, so will the level of tax.
The non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) estimates the provision will raise $12 billion in taxes.
$1.2 Billion Coal Tax Which Will Increase Household Energy Bills
The bill would more than double current excise taxes on coal production. Under the Democrat proposal, the tax rate on coal from subsurface mining would increase from $0.50 per ton to $1.10 per ton while the tax rate on coal from surface mining would increase from $0.25 per ton to $0.55 per ton.
JCT estimates that this will raise $1.2 billion in taxes that will be passed on to consumers in the form of higher electricity bills.
$225 Billion Corporate Income Tax Hike Which Will Be Passed on to Households
Democrats imposed a 15 percent corporate alternative minimum tax on the financial statement income of American businesses reporting $1 billion in profits for the past three years. These American companies employ millions of Americans.
The cost of this tax increase will be borne by working families in the form of higher prices, fewer jobs, and lower wages.
A Tax Foundation report from last December found a 15 percent book tax would reduce GDP by 0.1 percent and kill 27,000 jobs.
Preliminary cost estimates from the Congressional Budget Office found the provision would increase taxes by more than $225 billion.
According to JCT’s analysis, 49.7 percent of the tax would be borne by the manufacturing industry at a time when manufacturers are already struggling with supply-chain disruptions.
Tax Foundation also warned that current supply chain issues could be worsened by the book tax’s disproportionate burden on key industries. The report concluded that “the coal industry faces the heaviest burden of the book minimum tax, facing a net tax hike of 7.2 percent of its pretax book income, followed by automobile and truck manufacturing, which faces a 5.1 percent tax hike.”
$74 Billion Stock Tax Which Will Hit Your Nest Egg — 401(k)s, IRAs and Pension Plans
When Americans choose to sell shares of stock back to a company, Democrats will impose a new federal excise tax which will reduce the value of household nest eggs. Raising taxes and restricting stock buybacks harms the retirement savings of any individual with a 401(k), IRA or pension plan.
Union retirement plans will also be hit.
The tax will put U.S. employers at a competitive disadvantage with China, which does not have such a tax.
Stock buybacks help grow retirement accounts. Raising taxes and restricting buybacks would harm the 58 percent of Americans who own stock and more than 60 million workers invested in a 401(k). An additional 14.83 million Americans are invested in 529 education savings accounts.
Retirement accounts hold the largest share of corporate stocks, accounting for roughly 37 percent of the outstanding $22.8 trillion in U.S. corporate stock, according to the Tax Foundation.
In 2017, corporate-sponsored funds made up $4.45 trillion in market value; union-sponsored funds accounted for $409 billion; and public-sponsored funds, which benefit teachers and police officers, added up to $4.25 trillion.
When companies perform stock buybacks, these investors are the ones who benefit. A tax on buybacks could dissuade companies from conducting this action and negatively impact retirement savings.
95% Federal Excise Tax on American Pharmaceutical Manufacturers
Democrats would impose a 95 percent excise tax on prescription drugs unless drug manufacturers accept government price controls.
In reality, all drug manufacturers would accept the price controls or stop selling the drug in the U.S. market entirely rather than pay the 95 percent tax.
This provision would restrict U.S. medical innovation and limit the supply of new medicines.
Price controls never work because they cause supply shortages. CBO warned the reduction in manufacturers’ revenue could be as high as $1 trillion over the next ten years and would “lower spending on research and development and thus reduce the introduction of new drugs.”
The CBO further stresses the “uncertainty” in assessing the number of new medicines that would be prevented from coming to market. The agency already revised its original assessment to increase the number of drugs prevented from being introduced by 50 percent.
52 Billion $ Income Tax Hike on Mid-Sized & Family Businesses
Just as the U.S. economy slides into a recession, Democrats are including a tax hike on pass-through businesses with declared losses. This provision widens the net of taxable income. Preliminary cost estimates from the Joint Committee on Taxation show the provision will increase taxes by $52 billion.
Senate Democrats passed an amendment to the bill before final passage that created a two-year extension on loss limitations of noncorporate taxpayers if the amount of the loss is in excess of $250,000 ($500,000 in the case of a joint return). This provision was scheduled to sunset in 2026 under current law.
This provision would raise taxes on a manufacturer, retailer or other capital-intensive business that sees significant business losses in any year due to the cost of wages, rent, new equipment, inventory, and interest payments.
The loss limitation was originally created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed by Congressional Republicans but was used to offset the creation of the 20 percent deduction for pass through businesses, resulting in a net tax cut for these businesses. Senate Democrats have now extended this loss limitation for two additional years to pay for their reckless tax and spend spree. They did not extend the 20 percent deduction for pass through businesses.
This provision violates President Biden’s campaign pledge to small businesses: “Taxes on small businesses won’t go up.”
IRS to Increase Audits – $204 Billion
The bill would spend $80 billion to supersize IRS with 87,000 new agents and auditors and ramp up audits on working households and small businesses. The IRS would perform an additional 1.2 million annual audits under the plan. Democrats claim the increased spending on enforcement would net $124 billion.
The bill spends 14 times as much money for “enforcement” — such as small business audits — than for “taxpayer services” — such as answering the phone. IRS employees only answer the phone “19 or 20 percent” of the time.
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, along with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, filed a lawsuit (Missouri v.

As reported by the New York Post, the Fargo School Board voted 7-2 to cancel the Pledge at all of its future bi-weekly board meetings. Those who voted in favor of the ban claimed that the Pledge of Allegiance wasn’t inclusive enough, primarily due to the use of the phrase “under God.”
Seth Holden, one of the board members who voted for the ban, claimed that because “the word ‘God’ in the text of the Pledge of Allegiance is capitalized…the text is clearly referring to the Judeo-Christian God and therefore, it does not include any other faith such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, all of which are practiced by our staff and students.” Article
