The most secure election ever!

Brought to you by the same people that brought you the most safe and effective vaccines.

More than one world renown statistician has said Biden's 65-45 lead in mail-in ballots on election day turning to many 95-5, in the big cities after midnight, was statistically impossible. I don't know what, or who, Alex is listening to but he needs to put his TDS aside and look at these late returns with a neutral eye.

Don't you remember Republican poll watchers being excluded from vote counts and windows into ballot rooms covered? I volunteered to be a poll worker in Las Cruces. I had to state my political affiliation, Republican. I was never called back, even though they said they had a shortage.

I forgot the name of the person who was ex Navy.. was asked to be a PA poll watcher by GOP or Trump admin. He said he was one of the few.. and was banned from going up to where the counting was done. He had to call lawyers and voter advocate organization to let in.. yet he was kept 20-30ft away from the nearest ballots. He called WH, warned them to send people there.. because there were 100s of Dem NGO activists walking around where he was not permitted to go anywhere near. WH people told him to go home and get some rest.. Trump is leading by 650.000. so, no worry.(that was around midnight. election day.) Next morning, he found Trump losing by 100.000.

Democrats have been advocating for voter harvesting for years. It seems like in 2020; they finally got their way.

Mass mail-in ballots, too. Another sure fire fraud machine but also a way to ensure that stoners and slackers (who routinely vote D but don't routinely vote for, well, obvious reasons). I suspect the number of S&S voters in 2020 was enormous.

Voter harvesting, vote buying, motor Voter, drop box, same day registration, and now universal mail-in voting. What can go wrong? and we use those machines too. I am so sick and tired of this state. Till 2020, I still had hope to fix this state, but, no longer. with so many illegals and so many are illiterate.. So many don't even have critical thinking. There is a reason why Demonrats want voters stupid.

The phrase too corrupt to govern comes to mind. By that I mean all people and parties within the DC area. There is an obvious disconnect between the so called “ruling class” in Washington and they rest of the country. To the point that it’s rather apparent that there is seemingly no concern beyond “I’m getting what’s mine” or making sure lobbying money doesn’t dry up

Very true Al. In fairness some Republicans fought hard, but so many were quiet in the face of Nov 5th headlines like "Officials Say Voting Was, Like, Best in All History, Jesus H Christ It Was Good". (The Time magazine piece about the groups coming together to "safeguard democracy" was literally breathtaking, and "literally" isn't hyperbole). But as we see with the vaccines, many people turn a blind eye, thinking "Not in America". That blind eye should be on VAERS.

No. Republicans did not fight other than a few. They were all RINO, and was complicit. That is why conservatives voters are pissed. Pardon my French.

The USA is in the mess it's in because the Media in this country has long forgotten it's 1st Amendment duty to hold the feet of Politicians, Bureaucrats , and Corporate executives to the fire. The Media is supposed to be the Watch Dog for the people, but instead is the Lap Dog of the establishment. Their duty is to lie, manipulate, obfuscate by any means to protect the elite.

A more intellectually honest position would be to reserve judgement and admit that there are important, unresolved questions that need to be answered before making categorical statements of fact.

Same position that Alex holds about the shots and claims that they're "safe and effective."

Yes, of course, how silly of me; I forgot that we are in some sort of postmodernist, epistemological nihilistic wasteland.

People come to different conclusions based on the available data/evidence.

And all the other permutations, on and on.

Yeah, it's Gell-Mann Amnesia. All the same people in media and government who have been proven liars on issue after issue, whether it's "vaccines stop the spread" or "This Tweet is COVID misinformation and you're banned" and on and on –– they're all the same people telling us that the 2020 election was legit.

But sadly, otherwise intelligent people like Alex get suckered into taking known liars at their word due to confirmation bias. Clearly Alex is no fan of Trump . Neither am I, to be honest. Difference is, Alex is letting his TDS color his thinking on this. "Surely this known liar is being honest about this one thing that I want to believe is true."

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus. Scratch a liar, find a thief.

There is just as much evidence for the statement "The 2020 election was fishy as hell," as there is for the statement "Donald Trump lost." If one is being intellectually honest, one has to admit that this thing doesn't sit right. Coming out and saying "Donald Trump lost" is just myopic.

Jon. My take… in 2020 44 states got the results within 4 to 5 hours after the polls closed. In 6 states, iit was way too difficult to count so late ( I dunno, lighting, not enough water, no coffee. Whatever the excuse) so they all decided to stop counting at the SAME time to try again the next day, or two days later or the next week.

A breathtakingly abnormal move and about the same as a bully smearing sh!t on your face and daring you to say it’s sh!t.

But the kicker is this. The so called Republican Party did NOTHING. Because they were all IN ON IT.

I changed my affiliation from republican to unaffiliated a week post election. Also, never voting again. Because it matters not. Not even close. The UniCapitalCrony party of Washington DC does what it wants when it wants. I am not even going to consider playing their game. “Every vote Counts!” Sure it does! Until the Vote Counter takes a look at the ballot.

So what if Donald Trump had been re-installed. We get the same policies, just under a different name. DYOD.

Expand full comment

Not sure we'd get the same policies with Trump, for instance the southern border. Biden halted construction on the wall, got rid of Remain, had said (In primary) "surge the border", and sent messages, literally and by actions, over and over, that crossing illegally is ok. They did and it continues, growing in number. Obviously there are many more examples of policy differences but this one alone is major and life affecting.

He's but one reporter and his focus is covid, not the stolen election. There is much evidence of election fraud here in Wisconsin. I could write several paragraphs describing it. Bottom line, there were not 80 million people who voted for Sleepy Joe Biden when 75 million voted for Donald Trump.

Well, I can see Trump increasing his voters turn out, after all the guy was constantly on the campaign trail (have you seen his rallies?).

Alex doesn't think it was rigged. I am sure he has not seen what I have seen and studied. https://www.conservativeglobe.com/articles/wisconsin-sure-has-a-lot-of-124-year-old-registered-voters-on-its-rolls/

"Let’s not forget that on November 6, 2020 – three days after Election Day was over – the Chair of the Federal Election Commission stated on live TV that we were all watching voter fraud take place right in front of us. Chairman Trey Trainor was referring to Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, and Wisconsin, which were all taking days and days and days to “count” the ballots without allowing any Republican observers into the counting rooms.

Could it really be possible that a conspiracy of that magnitude took place in Wisconsin? I’ll believe that before you ever convince me that Rock County, Wisconsin has 8,550 living voters who are older than Thelma Sutcliffe."

23,266 voters were all registered with the same Wisconsin phone number.

8,550 voters first registered to vote in Wisconsin in 1918.

Wisconsin HOT also discovered an addition 45 phone numbers that are shared by 900 registered voters.

In Rock County, 900 voters were registered at the same address.

543,000 voters in Wisconsin have no officially recorded date of registration.

I know it's rigged we caught them. Ready? My dad lives here he is 92. He moved from Florida but still has a FL Drivers license and is registered there, he's been here 3 years. He is a registered republican in Florida. In about October 2020 we received a voter registration card detailing a person with the name of my father had registered to vote. BUT there was one issue, the first and last name were exact BUT the middle initial was wrong and there was a junior at the end of the name. He is not a junior. We went to vote with it to SEE what would happen. When we got there we found out this person was registered as a democrat AND HAD ALREADY VOTED. I have a special name database i have access through for my work. My fathers name is not common, I checked the name that was on the Voter reg card and that person doesn't exist in CA. So yeah, there's not voter fraud?? BS. Our country is being stolen away because the elections are RIGGED.

Yep. 100% agree. That’s why when you go to vote in Ca and you try to present your ID they laugh at you and say put that away. You don’t need that here! Then if you try to see if your vote was cast correctly in CA they tell you there is no way to verify that.

And yet. All that evidence and nothing changes. Nothing gets done. Nobody reports on it. No one prints the proof of it. I believed from the minute I woke up on nov 4Th or was it the 5th. So long ago it seems.. It was stolen. I’m now glad Trump is not in there because I see him in a whole different light after all this. I hate that Biden is in there. The only person I see fit right now to hold that office is Ron DeSantis and he has things he needs to work on too! He has been quiet on these vaccines like all other Republicans so I’m not sure what is up with that. Honestly. I wish there was a third party. I don’t trust democrats or republicans and this whole vaccine scandal proves our government is completely corrupted. Can our country recover from this?? Only time will tell. So many people are putting trust In These upcoming 2022 elections! Why? Do you really think they will be fair?? The Democrats have perfected voter fraud. Do you really believe Gov Newsome was voted to remain in office?? I think tax paying people in CA knew for sure this man was corrupt. How can anyone in CA be happy with the way this state is governed?? It’s a mess! But the rich people in their summer homes saying just leave well enough alone. Nancy Pelosi just bought a 22 million home in Florida of all places! To add to all her other homes ( one of which is in Napa) Even she wants out of this crappy state with it’s over the top taxes, with its shitty roads and garbage lined highways( except in Sacramento of course) and tents everywhere you go with homeless shitting in the streets. Yea. California. A prophet on the burning shore! Even Bob Weir and the Grateful Dead have sold out. Good ole CA boys getting in good with the politicians. You know it’s bad when the once liberal hippies are now pushing the government propaganda. Bob Weir won’t even play at any venue unless every single person is vaccinated and masked up! He doesn’t even care if you have medical or religious exemption or you have natural immunity. Nope. Even Bob Weir says you are not welcome here unless you comply with the government! Ok. Well thanks for letting me rant people. I know I was all over the board but I just needed to get a few things off my mind. I’m so depressed at the state of this country right now. In 2 weeks my son will be forced to take the booster so he can remain at Berkeley college. He survived brain surgery. I hope he beats the odds and wins in this Russian Roulette vaccine! I’ve been trying to get someone at Berkeley to meet with me so I can present the data against these vaccines but no one will give me the time of day. Also my 2 daughters are vaxxed and probably going to get the boosters. Am I being over dramatic? I could lose all my kids to these poison shots and I have no one to help me! I am the only one not vaxxed in almost all my family and circle of friends. Where to go to escape this madness??? HELP

You are not alone. The only action that has helped me lately is to avoid reading news, avoid videos, podcasts, avoid anything discussing vaccines, politics, anything that triggers me. I realize that I’m writing this on THE source for vax info, I do that because this is the one outlet that I grant myself access to once per day.

For me, it’s not about ignoring or denying the reality of our situation, rather it’s about recognizing the limitations of my conscious experience and that when my primary input is topics that trigger anger, fear, or frustration, then those become my primary experience. Reality is also something I create.

Not sure if this is relevant or matters to you, I just feel your struggle.

Is a college education worth his life cut short? I think I misspoke when I said the shot was like Russian Roulette. It's like RR with bullets in every chamber of the gun. The difference is if it will kill you quick or kill you slow. You are shooting a bullet into your body either way. For some, it hits the heart and they are dead within 24 hours. For others, it hits the brain and they have a stroke or nerve damage. Others it hits other various parts of the body that take more time to kill you. But the bullet is deadly and it will keep harming you if you put it in your body.

I love you. Thank you for ranting you couldn't have said it better. They'll probably bring back Trump to further divide the nation and get the rest of the Republican clones to take the death shot. Everyone whose had the shot will die. The virus will never die on those vaccinated. It has found a host that cannot kill it. It will proliferate and get stronger each year. The time has come. We are there. Call me crazy but I stand with the creator of the universe and I will die doing the right thing whether that is today, tomorrow or in 30 years. I fear nothing.

The Commission fought the order and won, keeping those names on the rolls.

If people actually believed there was a coup, and their vote didn't count, it might cause much greater than a riot and it would be justified. But the insurrection story is meant to turn around the narrative from a stolen election (the actual purpose of the protests), to attack Donald Trump and accuse him of inciting an insurrection; and, therefore, making it illegal for him to ever run for office again.

I disagree regarding compromise and the threat on your children and grandchildren. There is one type of person who can withstand that threat and that is a true Christian who serves God, not men.

Some of our founders were those type of men. Their families were surely threatened when they signed the Declaration of Independence. They were looking at the long term goal of true freedom and Christian liberty for their children and grandchildren. They obeyed God rather than men.

Alex, you and I do not agree about the election. We can't prove the election was stolen. We shouldn't have to. We should be able to have confidence the elections were fair. It's on the election officials to demonstrate the elections were fair, and they just haven't done that. Surely you don't think they have.

It's your substack, and you can run it as you see fit. You're doing awesome work on covid. Just my opinion- you should stay in your covid lane, and away from the elections.

That said, if you choose to opine on the election from time to time, I'm not going to let that divide us. There's enough divisiveness as it is w/o having litmus test for people we'll consent to dialogue with.

Keep up the good work on covid and vaccines.

Expand full comment

I appreciate this comment, but disagree that he needs to stay in his lane. He has a right to express any view that he wants to. He didn't claim to be an expert or refute any of the really good points that readers are sharing here. I think that Alex would agree that EVERY journalist, every written piece, must be read with discernment. Readers really shouldn't take anyone's writing as absolute truth. Fact check Alex on Covid. He makes it easy to do this by providing sources. He would be disappointed if you didn't take a look at those sources. This is why I trust Alex's work....because he doesn't spout "facts", but rather does a tremendous amount of research and backs up his work. As far as the election opinion that he shared -- he told us that he hasn't focused on it and didn't provide sources to substantiate his opinion. So IMHO, that's all perfect! I read (okay, I skim) many different news sources every day. A few just to get a gauge on what others are reading and the ones that I read more carefully because they offer different focuses or perhaps I want to see how their versions of a story compare. As far as Alex goes, knowing that he doesn't toe a party line is a quality that makes him very credible to me.

Yes! You might be right about the hectoring cuz I've read all the Connellys (40 or so?) and don't remember any gratuitous political plugs, but all very well researched (especially Haller, imo)

The media has coordinated with big tech monopolies, governments, intelligence agencies and supranational organizations funded by oligarchs to spread lies and propaganda and label the truth 'misinformation' and 'conspiracy theories'. If they could do it for a global plandemic, why would they hesitate for one second to engineer the same thing in 5 counties in 5 states for an election that puts a demented corpse in the executive branch? People are so petrified of being called a "conspiracy theorist" by the conspirators that they'll refuse to speak the truth when it constantly slaps them in the face.

The most important part of the post:

"I know Tucker Carlson feels differently about Jan. 6 than I do, too. We disagree. I think Tucker is making too many excuses for what happened.

But Tucker has me on anyway! Tucker doesn’t tell his guests what to say, or demand that they meet ideological purity tests to come on. Neither does Joe Rogan."

Jan 6, 2022·edited Jan 6, 2022

Tucker Carlson's take on 1/6 is as nuanced as the event itself if you take the time to listen. He makes absolutely no apologies for any individual -- protestor or LEO -- who committed acts of violence. The number of actually violent people is small compared to the overall number of people that "stormed" the people's building. Most just carried flags and banners. The issue of course is that those flags and banners expressed unbridled support for the Forbidden One. And the total number of those who "breached" the Capital (funny how no one ever used the term during the previous 8 months of nearly continual violent riots -- but then those riots were allegedly held for an approved cause) is tiny compared to the overall number of Trump supporters who came to DC that day. A few hundred out of hundreds of thousands does not represent a "movement".

It is becoming increasingly clear that the FBI was as much a participant and a catalyst for 1/6 as it they were for the Whitmer kidnapping plot, as they have been countless times in their sordid history. That the DOJ still refuses to release what can only be exculpatory video footage of that day only confirms their subversion and involvement. Ray Epps who?

EDIT: RCP has a nice chart highlighting the differences between 1/6, the 2020 riots, and the 2017 "resistance" to Trump's inauguration. Worth a quick look.

He is making a valid point about journalism, but at the same time, it doesn't take a lot of sleuthing to determine that the election was far from clean and secure. He really ought to take a look.

Besides the suitcases and video of running piles of ballots multiple times.. there's also the latest discoveries in GA about ballot couriers dumping ballots into drop boxes for cash payment.. that's definitely above board.

Taking a "break" from counting is basically a universally recognized sign of shenanigans, at least it would be in any self-respecting third world country. In 5 states at the same time...???

Expand full comment

And those states only stopped counting after it became clear that Trump only need one or two more states to win and Biden needed ALL of them. And then those late-night batches had percentages not seen anywhere else in the country!

Even before then, the BS was deep. The media calling states for Biden as soon as the polls closed, but waiting to call them for Trump until far far later. This gave the impression that Biden was always head, when in reality Trump was crushing it all night.

Roger that. But his own irresponsible "journalism" on the election theft issue is a bad vehicle for making that case.

I tend to agree he hasn't researched this as much as the vaccine issue. I suspect like many of the substack writers, he was a liberal who is alarmed by the fascist behavior of this administration and horrible journalism for years. But it's hard for him to see all of this clearly. Has a hard time seeing he real depths of corruption and what these people are capable of. What they've done. But he IS right that we should have an exchange of ideas even when we don't agree. THAT I agree with.

I have a question. In Fulton County, on election night..what do YOU suggest was happening on video, when ballots were rolled out from under a table, and fed through the machines multiple times, after people were told to go home and counting would resume in the morning? In all seriousness, what is the legitimate explanation for that?

Expand full comment

broken pipe, everyone go home we'll pick up in the am, boxes come out from under tables, counting continues. Alex is an excellent investigative reporter but he's going to stick his fingers in his ears and his head in the sand on this. Will he talk to anyone about those incidents caught on tape? NOPE!! Will he talk to anyone about the AZ audit? NOPE!!

I enjoyed Pandemia and I'm glad he wrote it but I also realize it's the byproduct of the axes he has to grind with twitter and thompson. Election fraud? Find another reporter.

I have to comment here. Alex wrote four pamphlets on various aspects of the Covid response well before his twitter ban.He may have an axe to grind with Twitter (so do many others), and I don't understand who Thompson is, but I know for certain that Pandemia is not simply a byproduct of axes he has to grind; the book provides an excellent history of how we got here.

Thompson is Derek Thompson, the Atlantic writer who called Alex "the pandemic's wrongest man". I liked the book, that's just my opinion on the motivation. Considering he devoted chapters to each...hey, I'd be ticked off too.

IMO there is no point arguing this with Berenson. His focus on Covid has left him less to largely uninformed on other issues. He has missed some information on Covid (he did last night on Tucker), so like all of us, he makes mistakes in his data and analyses. Where he makes a really big mistake is pontificating on his admittedly uninformed opinion. People adopt that uninformed opinion because of his national recognition and reputation for accuracy, where he isn't here.

Expand full comment

I respectfully disagree, but if you take the "multiple times" out, what is the explanation for the rest of it? There was no water main break, they sent everyone but a select group home, they said counting would resume in the am, then it resumed shortly thereafter; with ballots from underneath a table with a tablecloth. This is not SOP.

Expand full comment

Have you watched an explanation of what happened?

It's important to read/watch rebuttals then rebuttals to the rebuttals to get to the the truth.

I looked into multiple cases of alleged vote fraud and each time (just like Alex) came up empty-handed. My sense is that most people who claim vote fraud take the presenting story and never go to the next step, which is to seek out if there is a reasonable explanation.

Did you know it's against GA law, apparently, to have skirts on the tables at the counting centers? In any event, why have skirts on the tables? Why hide anything??? Why were the observers kept so far away???

Even if Corona was a legit threat, which is was not, why not make sure every area has a high res feed for observers "distanced" for safety? Why tell observers to leave and then count more ballots???

Exactly how gullible are you????????

What's the logical explanation for sending the press and observers home for a fake water main break just to start running ballots through that were hidden under a table as soon as everyone left?

My feelings about Jan 6th are this. It wasn't a huge threat. Julie Kelly has done great investigative reporting on it; I hope you look at some of her work. Should Americans have trespassed? No. But that's all it was. Nothing more. No one was armed. It was not an armed insurrection and to call it such, is false (not saying that you did, but most in the media are).

As an American I am disgraced with how corrupt our capitol police and FBI are. To have American citizens in jail, in solitary confinement, with few privileges, all because they trespassed, for almost a year? How about the lefties who stormed the senate Hart building? To not see the inequitable treatment of the situations is to be blind.

Those who trespassed should have been fined and this should have been over. That's it. But the GOP is a joke and few will even look into how the J-6 detainees are being treated. The Dems are out for political blood and will do anything to those who don't support their agenda. Full stop.

Expand full comment

so disgusting for sure how the GOP does not assist those who have been charged with no crimes still locked up in Washington. The majority of those detained still have no criminal history either. It's a disgrace especially with how we see perps who have literally killed others out on like $500 bail across the land.

Trump hasn't done Pf-ck all for them either. And it was his narcissism, his coy failure to discredit Q and similar "pro-Trump" psyops that enabled Agent Provocateurs like Ray Epps to trick these harmless fools into the capitol.

Especially considering all the riots prior to Jan. 6th- the burning, the looting, the death, the destruction- all of which was glossed over by the MSM- including breaking into the capitol building during the Kavanaugh hearings. Our government has thrown mere trespassers into the gulag, apparently forever, without a fair hearing or trial or bail- besides, it was a setup. Just ask Pelosi, the FBI, and the Capitol police.
