    “Mail-In Ballots will lead to massive electoral fraud and a rigged 2020 Election. Look at all of the cases and examples that are out there right now, with the Patterson, N.J., being the most recent example. Republicans, in particular, cannot let this happen!”

    Trump has made a series of baseless claims about the danger of mail-in ballots, apparently out of a fear that it favors Democrats. There’s no evidence that mail-in balloting favors Democrats over Republicans. Research published in 2020 found that encouraging widespread voting by mail yielded “a truly negligible effect” on turnout and vote share by party. Moreover, documented instances of voter fraud are exceedingly rare in the United States. The same is true with absentee voting, according to Richard L. Hasen, an elections expert at the University of California at Irvine. “There were 491 prosecutions related to absentee ballots in all elections nationwide between 2000 and 2012, out of literally billions of ballots cast,” Hasen wrote in an essay for The Washington Post. That's because it is hard to commit fraud even though Trump claims it is easy to duplicate ballots and distribute them, or even to grab them from mailboxes. Cast ballots are confirmed against existing information to ensure that fraudulent voting doesn't occur. In many states, it would also be necessary to know how the voter associated with the ballot signs his or her name and then forge it convincingly. In order to swing an election, a fraudster would need to do this hundreds or thousands of times.

    “Absentee Ballots are fine. A person has to go through a process to get and use them. Mail-In Voting, on the other hand, will lead to the most corrupt Election is USA history. Bad things happen with Mail-Ins. Just look at Special Election in Patterson, N.J. 19% of Ballots a FRAUD!

    This is nonsense. Absentee and mail-in ballots are essentially the same. Both require voters to register first. Trump indicates that he sometimes votes by mail out of necessity, but CNN reported that he voted by mail at times when he could have gone in-person. Most states do not require a reason for absentee voting, though some do require an excuse. Trump also erred in describing the voter fraud case in Paterson, N.J. (spelled with one T, not two). Officials said they rejected 19 percent of ballots in a local election, but it's unclear how many were fraud. "News reports say 800. That gets you to 4.8%. Rest were rejected for other reasons, such as USPS delays and signature matching. As to latter, NJ has settled federal suit to improve signature matching," according to NJ Spotlight.

    “So now we have a mail-in thing. And you see California — he's sending out millions and millions of ballots. Where are they going? Where aren't they going? Is the postman going to hand them out? Are they going to take them out of the mailboxes?”

    HERE’S WHAT I THINK – THE COMING DEMOCRAT-SOCIALIST ANTI-TRUMP ‘COLOR’ REVOLUTION – PART FOUR / FOUR

    NEW PART FOUR

    HERE’S WHAT I THINK – THE COMING DEMOCRAT-SOCIALIST ANTI-TRUMP ‘COLOR’ REVOLUTION – PART FOUR / FOUR

    The Democrat-Socialists are planning a ‘Color Revolution’ after the November 3 Presidential election. To carry out their diabolical plans, the need:

    • A United Rebellion

    • An organized opposition

    • They now have it too

    The Democrat-Socialist Military Wings already exist:

    The Momentum Community

    ‘The Momentum Community’ is a training institute that gives progressive organizers (Socialist-Marxist Political Action Groups) the agendas to build massive, decentralized social movements. The leaders of this Prep-Course for Color Revolutions seeks to create and encourage organizers who know how to dream of and bring about fundamental change, and give them the tools to make it happen.

    The organization, ‘The Momentum Community’ get their inspiration from…

    • Their momentum – Many 20th century revolutionary movements

    • Color Revolutions of Eastern Europe

    • The Arab Spring in North Africa

    • The will drive home that voting results are going to be falsified.

    • On election night

    Most of the radical domestic terrorist that we have seen across America’s major cities have been part of this Socialist-Marxist organization.

    • ANTIFA

    • Black Lives Matter

    • Refuse Fascism

    • The Transition Integrity Project

    • The sunrise movement (The strongest Left-Wing group pushing the Green New Deal)

    Tee Stern – Head of Atlanta Chapter of ‘Refuse Fascism’ said:

    “The ultimate vision is for people to break their comfort and come into the streets day after day, night after night into the hundreds of thousands into the millions and not leave until they have stepped down.”

    That is a classic Color Revolution in December, 2020

    • To convince people – before election There will be voter fraud

    • To make a Trump victory appear illegitimate.

    • They have the help of the media too

    This is why the Democrats radically push for mass mail-in voting.

    • It's why the Postal Service Conspiracy was born

    • It’s the reason for the article in Axios about Trump refusing to step down.

    • They need to give thugs a green light to go into the streets

    • Let the thugs know they have support from the top.

    • It's signaling top-down ready.

    When the Color Revolution begins:

    • The Independent Media will flood citizens about falsified vote.

    • This is what will happen after the election

    • If Trump is winning he will be silenced

    • The Media will totally silence him

    According to the Daily Beast, a coalition of leading Progressive groups gathered to begin organizing for the post-election day political apocalypse scenario. They are being pushed and prepared by the Democratic-Socialist Party right now.

    The Fight Back Table

    The ‘Fight Back Table’ is an enterprise with the purpose of bringing a dedicated and united group of radical left-wing Democrat-Socialist organizations together to plan the Color Revolution.

    The Fight Back Table meetings dealt with:

    The Democrat-Socialists intend

    • to create stress and massive upheaval

    • to throw the election to Biden and to resist and recounts, should Biden be the uncertain winner

    • If Trump is an uncertain victor, to have it totally cast in doubt.

    • If Trump wins in a Landslide, to have the election again said to be illegitimate

    America, tyranny, oppression, repression, sedition and treason is crouching at our door. The future of the nation, the U.S. Constitution and liberty, itself, is in the hands of the American people. Only ‘We The People’ can preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

    America – Now you know. America – What will you do?

    Here's another state trying to change rules of voting at last minute to make things harder for people to vote by mail. This is just another example of how things are working to make sure that Trump has a better chance of winning in any state. This country is no longer a democracy. We are losing our right to a two party system. But nobody cares about this situation at all.

    America/ABC News…
    It's no secret, the "conservative bent" SCOTUS has already given Trump/Republicans
    early advantages in election rulings.
    America, this about "YOUR BOTTOM LINE $$$ & PAYING BILLS & STAYING SAFE!"
    TRUMP SAID, "NO MORE STIMULUS TALKS!" TRUMP'S, NOT WELL AT THIS MOMENT.
    Russian military intelligence criminal hackers are meddling with U.S. electrical power grids throughout different states.
    However, SCOTUS rules, registered voters must vote in massive quadruple "too big to steal"
    numbers… in order to overturn, millions of rejected ballots that "WILL NOT" be counted.
    REPUBLICANS/NEFARIOUS OTHERS WILL CREATE WHATEVER, TO BLOCK YOUR VOTES.
    If, the "conservative bent" SCOTUS with Barrett seated on the Supreme Court has to decide,
    who wins the 2020 Presidential Elections… SCOTUS WILL RULE IN FAVOR FOR TRUMP!
    YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE U.S. & RUSSIAN BANKS!!!
    VOTE EARLY & VOTE OFTEN! TRUMP WANTS THE ELECTIONS TO BE DECIDED BY SCOTUS.
    REGISTERED VOTERS… WHAT WILL BE YOUR RESPONSE???
