FARNAN: Ballot Harvesting is The Most Systematically Racist Practice in America, And It Stole This Election


As Trump voters peruse the spider veins of the internet to find information prohibited in the main arteries, each is developing his or her favorite compelling piece of evidence that proves election fraud.

My favorite is the testimony of Dr. Linda Lee Tarver, the former election integrity liaison to Michigan’s Secretary of State. She also happens to be black, which shouldn’t matter, but it does give her an additional element of historical standing to issue a complaint. 

This is the short version of what she said:


This is her entire statement.

To summarize, in the black neighborhoods of Detroit, there were no checks against illegal ballot harvesting, drop box abuse, signature manufacturing, and stacks of ballots showing up from out of nowhere; and no ability to do a forensic audit or recount after the event.

Dr. Tarver concluded: “The larger the jurisdiction with people of color people who look like me, the more fraud that can be inserted into stealing an election, and that is a problem and we need to stop it.”

She is rightly offended.

Ballot harvesting involves paternalistic white people entering black neighborhoods and compelling political decisions because they think they know better.  

It is the most systemically racist thing presently being done in America. 

The last time whites were so eager to count disengaged African Americans was at the Constitutional Convention in 1787.

1787: The Constitutional Convention

Southern representatives insisted that slaves – who were not allowed to vote – nevertheless be included in determining a state’s total population so that those states could have a proportionally greater number of members in the House of Representatives and the electoral college.

Northerners, knowing that they were dealing with a duplicitous power grab, negotiated a compromise under which only three out of five slaves would be counted in a state’s population. 

This is unfortunately taught in schools as a diminishment of black rights, but that is a historic misreading.  

The Three-Fifths Compromise codified in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 of the Constitution was an attempt by decent folks to hold the line against those who would cynically use African-Americans in a count to enact their self-serving political agenda.

Sound familiar?

Statistical analysis suggests ballot harvesting in selected black areas is the only way Joe Biden could have possibly prevailed in the 2020 election.

Exit polling shows President Trump received a significant surge among minority voters compared to recent Republican performance. 

Biden’s support among black voters fell well below 90 percent, which has generally been considered a fatal for a Democratic candidate. But he “won”?

Seventy-four million Americans voted for Donald Trump, which would be the most that ever voted for a single candidate in a presidential election. 

According to almost every metric, Trump prevailed in a landslide.

Except that there were four strange voting batches between 1:34-6:31 a.m. from black precincts in four states: Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia. 

One of the infamous night drops of ballots.

The batches were wildly skewed in Joe Biden’s favor and did not reflect Trump’s gains among minority voters. They were generally mail in ballots from inner city neighborhoods. The signatures were not matched to prove authenticity. 

Observers were not present to observe the counting. No chain of custody independently authenticates the ballots. A significantly lower percentage of mail in and absentee ballots were rejected than in past cycles.

By several sworn accounts, the ballots simply appeared unmailed, unfolded, through the back door. 

Before the election, 27 races were listed as toss-ups. Republicans won all 27. It is not possible that the man on the top of the ticket who led that surge somehow lost the race.

Steve Cortes was the first to make the statistical case against a Biden win – and this essay and many of the pieces linked above draw from the original source, which bears rereading.

There are two possible explanations for what happened here. 

The first, provided by J. Christian Adams in his must-read piece at PJ Media, is that the Mark Zuckerberg financed Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) injected hundreds of millions in private contributions to fund urban get-out-the-vote efforts.

Here’s how Mr. Adams describes the operation:

What these grants did was build structural bias into the 2020 election where structural bias matters most – in densely populated urban cores. It converted election offices in key jurisdictions with deep reservoirs of Biden votes into Formula One turnout machines. The hundreds of millions of dollars built systems, hired employees from activist groups, bought equipment and radio advertisements. It did everything that street activists could ever dream up to turn out Biden votes if only they had unlimited funding.

In 2020, they had unlimited funding because billionaires made cash payments to 501(c)(3) charities that in turn made cash payments to government election offices.

Shout out to my editor Raheem Kassam and Natalie Winters who led the coverage on the CTCL at this site back in early October.

Mr. Adams proceeds to warn that the process he described may not technically be illegal. Wow. If white billionaires can enter black communities and throw around money to secure Biden votes – and that’s somehow not illegal – we’re not a serious nation.

The CTCL analysis explains a lot, but not everything. Why were the count stopped and observers removed before the Biden batches appeared? 

That question leads to a second explanation for the wild statistical anomalies. 

Even with the fake suppression polls, President Trump outperformed expectations, and by midnight it was apparent that the CTCL’s efforts were not going to be enough.

The cheaters needed a Plan B.

Vote tallies stopped on election night so observers could be kicked out and shenanigans could ensue.

To know exactly what happened in those dead hours would require an FBI and an Attorney General with sufficient intellectual curiosity to see evidence of fraud, and actually do something about it.

Christopher Wray and William Barr are the same Washington insiders, though, who have managed to indict only one minor player for the equally corrupt attempt to steal the 2016 election. 

If you want to learn the complete and unvarnished story about the governing oligarchy’s first attempt to steal an election from Donald Trump, don’t wait for John Durham to finally do something. Instead, read my short ebook, The Russia Lie, available here for a mere five bucks.

Without support from federal law enforcement or Republican governors, Trump’s election lawyers have been left to gather affidavits and evidence from heroic citizen volunteers. 

Their efforts have been amazing and courageous. The story will continue to develop in the coming weeks.

It certainly appears, at this point, that Democrats attempted to fix the election – as Dr. Linda Lee Tarver testified – by improperly harvesting and counting votes primarily from black communities.

That is what people are saying, anyway, at gas station coffee kiosks where Trump’s record 74-million black, white, Asian, and Hispanic disenfranchised voters typically gather before work.

We’re not going anywhere either. It is a fundamental principle of physics that energy cannot be destroyed. As always, science is on Trump’s side.
