Experts say next step of certifying Michigan votes is ‘simple’ process
Michigan Board of State Canvassers to certify results of 2020 election Monday
The Sleight of Hand Election of 2020
I’m no magician but I know a couple of great ones, including my broker, who is famous in both professions (welcome to LA), but I doubt even my friend Stan can pull off the sort of trick I saw taking place at, oh, 2:00 in the morning of November 4th as I was watching the live feeds from Michigan and Pennsylvania roll in.
I’m pretty good at counting votes before and after an election. Did it for Presidents and Prime Ministers, Senators and Governors as a pollster and strategist, so watching returns, doing the splits, figuring out the precincts that come in favorably for your guy or girl versus the ones that don’t, all come second nature to me. Mostly because I’ve been doing it for forty years, and when I’m not counting votes, I’m counting cards ( that’s another article). So when you see – in the middle of the night – a “dump” of votes of about 28,000 come in for one candidate, Joe Biden, and NOT one single offsetting vote for Trump, then it raises more than just my eyebrow.
Crush of mail-in ballots slows count in 4 key states #CNNElection
Michigan county flips back to Trump, following repair of voting software glitch
(November 6, 2020)
Addressing the alleged software glitch, Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox said Friday during a press conference that „47 counties [in Michigan] use this same software in the same capacity.“
Officials: Clerk error behind county results favoring Biden
The Department of State said Antrim and many other counties in Michigan use the Dominion Voting Systems election management system and ballot tabulators. The tabulators are programmed to scan hand-marked paper ballots.
Note also how at the bottom they go from 1,344,469 vote totals to 1,072,844. Which is obviously not possible. @MichiganDems you’ve been exposed.
Trump did not lose #AntrimCounty in #Michigan. It is now confirmed that 32 other counties use the same software as Antrim County. He will get 6,000-plus votes out of Antrim. What about the other counties with the same software?
Election Officials in Antrim County Investigate ‘Skewed’ Election Results
The county clerk says she became aware of “apparently skewed” results early Wednesday morning.
The county says they are working with election officials across the county, and with the company that provides their voting software, to figure out what happened
Michigan update: recently updated and reported results now include absentee ballots voted by citizens in Livonia and Dearborn. Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids still have yet to fully complete and report their tabulation of every ballot.
Official in Michigan’s Wayne County can’t predict when vote counting will finish
County clerk Cathy M. Garrett declined to give a specific time frame on when we can expect it to be completed.
“Because of how large our county is, I don’t want to be boxed in with that. But just know that we’re not in a competition.“
Crush of mail-in ballots slows count in 4 key states
Four key battleground states — Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia — began Wednesday with tens of thousands of absentee ballots uncounted, leaving the White House race between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden up in the air.
Election officials in some states called it a night and planned to resume the count in the morning, while some counties in Pennsylvania weren’t even to start tabulating their mail-in votes until later Wednesday morning.
JUST IN: Philadelphia election officials have counted about 76,000 ballots and won’t report any additional mail-in ballots until 9 a.m. Wednesday. Meanwhile, in Detroit, officials expect to finish counting absentee ballots by Wednesday evening.

Opinion: Gov. Whitmer’s emergency powers ended immediately with ruling
In response to the Court’s ruling, the governor incorrectly stated that the decision is not effective for another 21 days: Under Michigan Court Rule 7.315(C)(4), “unless otherwise ordered by the Court, an order or judgment is effective when it is issued…” Not 21 days later. Immediately. Her emergency powers are over, and either the Court or the attorney general should publicly clarify that Whitmer’s executive orders no longer have any force of law.
Whitmer slams Supreme Court ruling, warns orders could continue
She warned the court order doesn’t take effect for another 21 days and some of the measures put in place to control the virus can continue under „alternative sources of authority not at issue in today’s ruling.“
Michigan Supreme Court Rules Whitmer’s Shutdown Order ‘In Violation’ Of State Constitution
The court ruled that Whitmer lacked authority under each of the two laws that govern states of emergency in Michigan to extend the state of emergency passed April 30, when her first state of emergency declaration expired, according to Mlive.com. Those two laws are the 1976 Emergency Management Act (EMA) and the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act (EPGA).
Michigan Supreme Court rules against Gov. Whitmer’s COVID-19 orders
The Michigan Supreme Court ruled on Friday that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer lacked the authority after April 30 to declare a state of emergency under the 1976 Emergency Management Act.
The court also ruled that the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act (EPGA) was unconstitutional, and that it did not provide a basis for Gov. Whitmer to exercise emergency powers.
‚I Took the Helmet Off and Laid the Batons Down‘: Michigan Sheriff and Police Didn’t Disperse Their Town’s Protest—They Joined It
Amid a national wave of uprisings against police brutality in response to last week’s brutal murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota—but in contrast to a wave of aggressive and violent responses from law enforcement to those demonstrations—a scene in Flint, Michigan that played out Saturday evening offered an alternative to aggressive police tactics as a local sheriff and his fellow officers laid down their riot gear and joined with those members of the community who came out to voice their outrage and sorrow.
Michigan sheriff joins protesters marching over George Floyd death
„Let’s walk,“ Swanson replied, prompting audible cheers from the crowd. Video showed the sheriff then walking with protesters through the street and taking selfies. He could also be seen giving high-fives.
Swanson later that night describe the march as „magic,“ noting that no arrests were made and no property damage had been reported that day in the city.
I want Whitmer to lock down Michigan until the state is punished so severely for voting Democrat, they don’t do it again for a generation.
State Senator Lucido calls for investigation in Governor Whitmer’s nursing home orders
The Macomb County republican says Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order required all long-term care facilities at less than 80% capacity to create COVID19 units and accept patients. Now he’s asking Michigan’s Attorney General and the U.S. Attorney for Michigan’s Eastern District to investigate whether that endangered nursing home residents.
“Why did we have this order, when medical personnel themselves are saying that the most unsafe position you could put the ones who are vulnerable in is bringing COVID into the facility,” said Lucido.
Peter Lucido wants investigation into Whitmer’s orders to place COVID-19 patients in nursing homes
The Macomb County lawmaker on Monday called for the probe into the governor’s Executive Orders 2020-50 and 2020-84, which mandate all long-term facilities in the state at less than 80% capacity to create COVID-19 units and accept and retain patients diagnosed with the new coronavirus.
„Why would we bring infected people into a facility that is set up to care for the elderly,“ Lucido said Tuesday. „Nursing homes were never set up to care for COVID-19 patients. Nursing homes don’t have the proper medical equipment, ventilators, or medical personnel to care for them.“
One-Third of US COVID-19 deaths were in nursing homes.. Governors who FORCED COVID-19 patients into Nursing Homes…

Governor Whitmer cannot legitimately invoke emergency powers on an ongoing basis when the legislature is available to address COVID-19. It’s not an “emergency” under such circumstances. President Trump tried this nonsense with the wall and arms sales. The same principle applies.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer extends lockdown order for the fifth time — through June 12
WJBK-TV reported that Whitmer extended her order on Friday evening at around 5:00 p.m., just as the Memorial Day weekend kicked off.

The step came as hundreds of conservative activists, including some who were openly carrying rifles, returned to the Capitol to denounce her stay-at-home order.
Whitmer wanted lawmakers to extend her emergency declaration by 28 days. It expires late Thursday.

The “American Patriot Rally” started on the statehouse steps, where members of the Michigan Liberty Militia stood guard with weapons and tactical gear, their faces partially covered. They later moved inside the Capitol along with several hundred protesters, who demanded to be let onto the House floor, which is prohibited. Some protesters with guns — which are allowed in the statehouse — went to the Senate gallery, where a senator said some armed men shouted at her, and some senators wore bulletproof vests.

Dr. Scott Jensen says the American Medical Association is now “encouraging” doctors to overcount coronavirus deaths across the country.
Jensen received a 7-page document that showed him how to fill out a death certificate as a “COVID-19 diagnosis” even when there isn’t a lab test confirming the diagnosis.
FBI reaches out to Sen. Burr over stock sales tied to virus
Senate records show that Burr and his wife sold between roughly $600,000 and $1.7 million in more than 30 transactions in late January and mid-February, just before the market began to nosedive and government health officials began to sound alarms about the virus. Several of the stocks were in companies that own hotels.
In case we didn’t see this look at these numbers. And the time stamp. This is reminiscent of 2016. If they can do this without any sort of accountability, guess what? They’ll keep doing it. It’s long been time to call for recounts and investigations. #ElectionIntegrity

Bernie Sanders, at Fox News Town Hall, hits Clinton for efforts to ‚relive‘ 2016, Biden for backing ‚crooks‘
The Biden campaign has repeatedly refused Fox News Channel’s invitations to participate in a town hall.
Separately, prompted by a recent video clip of Clinton claiming that „nobody likes“ Sanders and that he „didn’t work until he was 41,“ Sanders responded: „Unlike Secretary Clinton, I don’t want to relive 2016. We’re in 2020 now.“
Why some conservatives are voting in Michigan’s Democratic primary
Whether conflicted conservatives vote for a Democrat in November may depend on the nominee. Earlier in the primary, NBC News spoke to some moderate Republicans who were excited at the prospect of voting for Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota or former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
‘Never Trump’ Republicans Will Support Biden, not Sanders

Erik Prince Recruits Ex-Spies to Help Infiltrate Liberal Groups
One of the former spies, an ex-MI6 officer named Richard Seddon, helped run a 2017 operation to copy files and record conversations in a Michigan office of the American Federation of Teachers, one of the largest teachers’ unions in the nation. Mr. Seddon directed an undercover operative to secretly tape the union’s local leaders and try to gather information that could be made public to damage the organization, documents show.

BERNIE SPEAKS TO PRESS AHEAD OF DETROIT RALLY
I’m speaking to the media before heading to Michigan for a big rally in Detroit.
Pay attention to the narrative they’re building. The Bernie delegates will not be awarded until they’ve stolen Michigan for Biden.

This has been the plan from the beginning. #RiggedPrimary
Congressional Candidate Matt Morgan going door to door in Escanaba
„If you’re a primary voter and you’re coming out in three weeks to vote in the primary and you vote a democratic ticket, I just need you to find the House of Representatives line and write in Matt Morgan and fill in that bubble. I am the only candidate running for the House of Representatives as a Democrat so you just have to write in Matt Morgan and fill in that bubble.“
Technical issue could keep Democrat off ballot
(30.4.2018) The Michigan Bureau of Elections notified the Morgan campaign last week that it would not recommend the state Board of Canvassers certify the 1,543 petition signatures that he submitted in early March to qualify for the August primary ballot, the campaign said.
At issue was the use of the campaign’s Post Office box in the heading of the nominating petitions, rather than a street address.
