A Guest Post by Pascal
On November 8, 2016, I and my daughter were witnesses to a voter irregularity that was casually dismissed by election place volunteers. It occurred to us afterwards that it was likely not only deliberate, but what we witnessed was a demonstration to others on how easy it was to do. IOW, the perpetrator was showing to all surrounding him how the behavior was not only not checked, but that there was no danger of being prosecuted for voter fraud, and that the crime could be repeated as often as any “voter” wished.
First, let me explain provisional votes.
A potential voter goes to the sign-in desk and asks for a ballot.
The registration checker does not find the name requested on the rolls.
The potential voter then asks for and is given a provisional ballot.
Each one is instructed towards a booth to fill out their ballot, remove the ballot number stub, and then place the ballot in a blank envelope and seal it.
Then they are to place the sealed envelope within a larger blue envelope upon which the applicant has filled in the necessary information that permits election integrity officials to determine if the name on the blue envelope is indeed eligible.
They are then to turn in that blue envelope back to the election officials.
These are about all there is to the simple requirements for anyone voting with a provisional ballot.
Now, on the other hand, for anyone who’s name is registered, they are simply handed a ballot, and directed to a booth for marking it with their votes.
The registered voter then goes up to the election official standing behind the ballot box. Usually all he has to do is make sure the number of the ballot is removed before insertion, and then the voter inserts it in the ballot box. One secret ballot among many.
But this is what my daughter and I witnessed.
A man with a ballot asks the ballot box official in an unusually loud voice, “IS THIS WHERE I PUT THIS? ”
Ballot box official says “Yes.”
The man deposits his ballot in box.
The man then pulls out from under his left armpit the blue provisional ballot envelope and asks, “NOW WHAT DO I DO WITH THIS”?
Ballot box boy simply looked dumbstruck. (A man would have reacted instantly). From what I could see, the blue envelope looked as blank as the expression on ballot box boy’s face.
Ballot box boy takes the envelope and puts it aside.
Do any of us have any idea how often this could have been repeated? By the same man even? He could travel from polling place to polling place in and around Los Angeles and repeat the crime without concern. Certainly the loudness of the perp and the total lack of any effort to detain him was far too blatant. To me the behavior and lack of checks on it bears all the earmarks of systemic fraud.
Now multiply his behavior by however many operatives may have been sent out or, indeed, multiplied by others watching and then repeating his actions.
So, whenever you hear it repeated that Donald Trump is delusional for saying the popular vote was ripe with fraud, you have this eye-witness account to help you put the detractor in his place.
One more thing with respect to how the Dems are playing the official vote outcome now; specifically with their charges of President Trump not having won a popular vote by THREE million votes.
Let me provide you one more indisputable fact to which you can add to your own conclusions from what I just told you about what I saw.
Donald Trump lost in evidential voter-fraud California by over FOUR million votes.
Here is the certified tally from the California Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton, DEM 8,753,788 61.7%
Donald J. Trump, REP, AI 4,483,810 31.6%
For those in our society who care about fairness, were we to simply ignore the tally of California votes because it is so badly compromised by systemic fraud, or at best by systemic incompetence, then without even looking at possible (likely?) irregularities in other Dem controlled election strongholds, a fair and decent society will acknowledge — California election officials be damned — that Donald Trump actually won the popular vote by about a million votes.
