Arizona certifies election results

Joe Biden won the Grand Canyon State by a mere 0.3 percentage points, or a little more than 10,000 votes. Arizona officials confirmed the results on Monday. Biden was the first Democratic presidential candidate since Bill Clinton to carry the state and only the second since 1948. President Donald Trump’s lawyers unsuccessfully challenged Arizona’s results in court. State law requires a less than 0.1 percent margin of victory for a recount.

Are Trump’s lawyers succeeding elsewhere? Trump campaign attorneys have alleged systemic voter fraud in states like Georgia. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Monday he would investigate more than 250 individual claims of voter fraud but he and other officials have not found evidence of such irregularities on a scale big enough to overturn Biden’s lead. He added they would pursue the cases to prevent fraud in the state’s Senate runoff elections in January.

The evidence is rapidly coming out and many have signed affidavits where they could be charged with perjury if they are found out to lie (e.g. by the Trump legal team). Some of the hearings are state legislator hearings too. Some are nonprofit groups who have worked to bring out the evidence which they have found.  The evidence is rapidly surfacing to show that the election was fraudulent and that Trump actually won! Just look at Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada, Georgia and Michigan! If these electoral votes are rightfully given to Trump, then Trump clearly won - not to mention AZ.

Sorry, *perjury."

I looked into the State Senate Majority Policy Committee hearing in Gettysburg.  Since Tim Miller asked why the allegations were not presented in court, I wanted to point out that the hearing referenced in the link provided was not held in a courtroom but in a hotel. In case anyone is wondering why I'm pointing this out, the fact that it was a "hearing" and not in a courtroom means that the public is allowed to present opinions, issues, etc to bring them to the attention of officials, but speakers are not under oath-which means they would not face pergury charges if they do not tell "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth."  Also, significantly, they are not subject to cross examination.

I appreciate that we are able to share our views on here and have discussions whether we agree or disagree. It's been a stressfull few weeks, and I have drawn a lot of comfort from God's Word.  

Ephesians 6:12-13  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.  Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

Colossians 1:16  For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things were created through him and for him.

Philippians 4:4-7  Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say rejoice.  Let your reasonableness be known to everyone.  The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Whatever happens, God is still on the throne of the universe.  Our enemies are not our political opponents but the spiritual forces of evil which have the power to deceive us and enslave our fellow human beings. Let us stand firm together and continue to lift each other in prayer.

"GOP Poll Watcher and Fraud Expert Gives Explosive Testimony About What He Observed Happen in Delaware County"  Nov 26, 2020 

The article begins:

"Gregory Stenstrom, a Navy veteran and forensic computer scientist, testified Wednesday before the State Senate Majority Policy Committee hearing in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, about an election process in Delaware County he described as being “forensically destructive.”"

Tim Miller

News2Me, if this is correct, why are they not bringing this up in court? These are explosive allegations that are being revealed at "hearings" that don't have the force of a court of law.

Tim Miller

World covers a lot more than politics (as opposed to Politico, for example) but I think is very fair and approaches it from a Christian worldview. What Christian outlet does a better job, in your opinion?

Tim Miller

Cyborg3, I think -- I hope -- we share the same commitment to truth, even if we do not agree on the likely outcome of an honest investigation of this election.

The "midnight dumps" just don't stand up to scrutiny. The fact is, Detroit (as just one example that I know of) has a history of voting 90%+ for Democrats. Plus, absentee ballots were even more heavily pro-Biden than in-person. (Trump has spent months telling people not to vote absentee, and then is shocked when his voters don't?)

I haven't gotten an answer from you or anybody why the Trump campaign thinks they lost the election in the cities, when in most cases, Trump actually improved his performance there over 2016. In Michigan, he gained support (barely) in Wayne County, but lost a great deal of support in Oakland, Washtenaw, Kent, Saginaw, etc. Had Trump maintained his 2016 support outstate, he would have won Michigan by a better margin than last time!

The Democrats may well be liars and cheaters. But you can't overturn an election because you think they are. You have to have evidence. And Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuiliani, Laurel, Hardy, and the rest of their elite legal strike force have not succeeded in putting forward the evidence that supports their claims. They won't put most of these claims into lawsuits; instead, they hold fake "hearings" in hotel ballrooms and rambling press conferences at random businesses. 

I want every legal vote to count. I don't support fraud, and I want it rooted out. But if Powell, Giuliani, Trump, et. al., are lying to us so they can keep raking in cash, or for whatever reason, they're just as wrong as the supposed fraudsters are.
