Timeline of U.S. Political Transformation, 9c
§9c. Hijacking the Presidency, Nov 2020 - Jan 2021
Through a variety of means, ranging from cybernetic manipulation to physical intimidation, illegal and unconstitutional election-law changes, millions of pre-printed mail-in ballots delivered across State lines in the dead of night, hundreds of thousands of ballots illegally trafficked for pay, premature media announcements of results, and extensions of deadlines for casting and counting votes, following nonstop investigations of spurious claims of Russian collusion, a president conspicuously lacking 'the consent of the governed' was installed, under military occupation of Washington DC.
The sequence of actions and events, policies and programs that transformed the United States from a free society into one lacking the Constitutionally required ‘consent of the governed’. How this gap in governance is increasingly filled by force and violence, livelihood threats, mass surveillance, centralized control of messaging, censorship, distraction, and miscounting of electoral results. Updated by inserting facts often revealed years after the event into the record when they actually took place.
Nov 1, 2020: Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar issues guidance County Election Boards to change deadline for receiving ballots from 8:00 pm on Election Day to three days after Election Day.
Nov 3, 2020: Election Day. At midnight of Nov 3, Trump leads by 555,000 in Pennsylvania, 357,000 in Georgia, 293,000 in Michigan, 112,000 n Wisconsin. • Georgia counts 1.3 million absentee ballots, rejecting 0.34% of them in 2020, compared to a 6.8% rejection rate in 2016, due to relaxation of signature-matching requirements. • Georgia election includes 2,056 felons, 66,248 persons under 18 year of age, 2,423 who had never registered to vote, 10,315 who had died, and 55,979 non-residents. • Fulton County Registrations Chief Ralph Jones reports water leak to clear staff out, then re-scans, during midnight hours, ballots already scanned, doubling the vote count. • U.S.Chamber of Commerce staff Neil Bradley calls AFL-CIO assistant to president Michael Podhorzer to coordinate post-election strategy. The two traditional adversaries issue a joint letter signed by CofC president Thomas Donohue and AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, plus clergy, urging acceptance of additional time for vote-counting 'even if it requires more time than usual'. Chamber of Commerce had previously rejected President Trump's call to look for alternatives for operations in China. || Source1, Source2
Michigan: Poll challenger Daniel Gustafson submits affidavit under penalty of perjury stating that about 40,000 unsecured, irregular ballots arrive in vehicles with non-Michigan license plates at Detroit’s only vote-counting location, TCF Center, at about 4:00 am on the morning of Nov 4 during a shift change in election workers. Eyewitnesses submit affidavits affirming under penalty of perjury that all of these 40,000 ballots are counted orally and attributed only to Biden. Poll challenger Robert Cushman attests that on Nov 4, 2020 at about 9:00 pm, he sees what he estimates to be several thousand more ballots arriving at the TCF Center, all processed without verification of voters' names as required. After credentialed poll challengers call attention to these violations of law, election officials and workers lock them out of the counting room so they could not observe the process, during which time tens of thousands more ballots are processed. || Source
Michigan: Post-election, Allied Security Operations Group, Russell Ramsland performs forensic review of Antrim County results, 'concludes that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results.' Errors constitute 68% of the total, requiring bulk adjudication by election workers secretly filling in ballot choices with no supervision and no audit trail. Voter adjudication logs, which were available for prior elections, are missing in the 2020 election, evidently removed manually to complicate detection of fraud. • 16 cities and towns, including Detroit, report voter turnout of 100% or more. Top turnout reported by Michigan is North Muskegon, with 781.91% of registered voters voting. • Affidavit of computer forensics examiner Ramsland states: 3,276 precincts in Michigan where Presidential Votes Cast were 84% to 350% of Estimated Voters based on census data. There were 431,954 excess ballots. 'In the data are four spikes totaling 384,733 ballots allegedly processed in a combined interval of only two hours and 38 minutes. This is physically impossible given the available equipment at the four referenced locations.' • Kayleigh McEnany cites 234 pages of sworn affidavits of Wayne County eyewitnesses who saw: a batch of ballots, 60 percent of which had the same signature, a batch of ballots scanned five times, provisional ballots (those that were not supposed to be counted yet until verified that they were legal) put in a tabulation box, poll watchers physically pushed away from counting tables by election officials, election officials covering windows so challengers were unable to observe counting.
Pennsylvania: Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt rules on Nov 12 that ballots received after 8:00 pm on Election Day may not be counted, in accordance with Pennsylvania law; and that instructions from the Secretary of State to extend the deadline for three days 'lack statutory authority'. However, because Pennsylvania election officials do not in fact separate late ballots from on-time ballots, they are all counted in defiance of the court's order.

Pennsylvania: Testimony of Rudy Giuliani to Pennsylvania Legislature Nov 26, 2020: 'We have calculated, and the evidence will show, that 682,770 mail-in ballots were entered into your [Pennsylvania] votes, that were not observed by any single Republican…. We could ask, and you could subpoena, all of the outer envelopes. Under the law of your State, which is set by you [legislators], those ballots are illegal. You sent out in the State -- the Commonwealth -- of Pennsylvania, 1.8 million absentee ballots. You received back 1.4 million. However, in the count for President, you counted 2.5 million [mail-in ballots]. I don't know what accounts for that difference in the number of ballots you sent out, and the number of ballots that ended up in the count. That number, 2.5 million, was on your Government website until yesterday. I can't imagine you could possibly certify without knowing the explanation of that; as well as the explanation to the 22,686 mail-in ballots that were returned on the day they were mailed. How about 32,591 that were returned the day after they were mailed? Another 20,000 were returned BEFORE they were mailed. This is kind of a low count. I guess the crooks in Philadelphia are disappointed in this. They only submitted 8,021 mail-in ballots from dead people.' || Source
Pennsylvania agrees on April 8, 2021 to remove the names of 21,000 registered voters who had died, in a settlement with the Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF), and to pay $7,500 in legal fees to PILF. || Source: U.S. Dist Ct Mid-Pennsylvania case number No. 1:20-cv-01905.
Pennsylvania: 'My name is Gregory Strenstrom, I am from Delaware county, former Commanding Officer in the Navy, veteran of foreign wars, CEO of my own private company, a data scientist and forensic computer scientist and an expert in security and fraud…. In all cases the chain of custody was broken. It was broken for the mail in ballots, the drop box ballots, the election day USB card flash drives, in all cases they didn’t follow any of the procedures defined by the Board of Delaware County of Elections. I personally observed USB cards being uploaded to voting machines by the voting machine warehouse supervisor on multiple occasions. I saw this personally. I brought it to the attention of the deputy sheriff who was there stationed as a senior law enforcement officer and I brought it to the attention of the clerk of elections — I objected. I personally observed USB cards being uploaded to voting machines by the voting machine warehouse supervisor on multiple occasions. This person is not being observed, he’s not a part of the process that I can see, and he is walking in with baggies of USBs'. Result is 120,000 extra votes. || Source: Testimony to Pennsylvania Legislature, Nov 25, 2020
Arizona: Voter Integrity Project (Matt Brainard) researchers find that 44% of a sample of people who allegedly requested an early ballot in Maricopa County say they never requested it.
