GEE… WHAT A SURPRISE? OR DEJA VU?

Today will be a short  blog, because today, of course, voters in California are casting ballots in the recall of that state's governor in a runoff with Larry Elder.  And already there are reports - in this case from KTLA Channel Five in Los Angeles - of some "irregularities"...

... irregularities such as people being told when they show up to vote that they've already voted, like this lady being interviewed (clip courtesy of V.T.):

San Fernando Valley residents cast provisional ballots due to equipment issue

So in listening to this story - and I rarely do videos here as most people know, but this one I had to - I had the sense of more than just a little bit of deja vu. I recall hearing similar stories during the night of the federal elections of 2016, and interestingly enough, from California. One lady I recall being interviewed back then was a poll worker who reported on a similar phenomenon of people being told they had already voted when they showed up to vote. Back then, the poll worker (another lady) appeared a couple of times in the wee hours of the morning, then we never heard from her or about the story any further.   I don't know if anyone else here remembers hearing that story, and hence I file this blog under 'You Tell Me.'

"You Tell Me" because is this simply a bit of a one-off, a little deja vu? Well, perhaps, perhaps not if the lady being interviewed is any indication, for she claimed that a couple of other ladies had similar experience, and - surprise surprise - they were all Republican voters, and hence not likely to vote for the state's current governor.

So... reassure me here... this is just deja vu... right? It's just an "equipment issue," that ever-present glitch ex machina that has cast the shadow of its hanging chads ever since the Collier brothers brought our attention to the issue of the dangers of machines and voting fraud in their book Votescam, right?

... or maybe not...

See you on the flip side...

  1. I was a poll worker in the last gen election here in CA and I personally saw all kinds of rules being broken, and the band-aid to any problem was a provisional ballot. Most voters have no idea that’s basically throwing away your right to vote because it will never be registered in time to count in the election. 30 days, maybe. Main violation I saw was bundling with no documentation. I asked both my poll boss and HER boss about it. As I recall I was basically told to mind my own biz and “we aren’t here to tell people they can’t vote”. It was a fiasco and I wouldn’t do it again for $50 an hour.

  2. Guess I’ll fix the avatar later if needed. And then maybe not.

    What’s that phrase? . . it’s not who votes that count; it’s who counts the votes,. . . or something similar. Despite the boldness of tampered elections there remains an accounting of who’s been running the voting polls. . . . Bet they wished they used an alias the first time. They’re running out of plausible deniability and technicalities fast. . . . Oh, yes, have a great day out of the crypts and cemeteries, too.

    There’s no doubt more folks are watching who’s who and where.

    1. Flynn – there’s a hearing on the 21st that will decide whether to de-certify the election in AZ.
      In just a few days we will know the future of America, if we still have a fighting chance.

  3. Interesting, the COO of Thiel Capital just posted a picture on Twitter shiwing.if you shine a light through a CA ballot envelope can see if the voter voted YES or NO.

    I dropped my ballot off on Tues 9/7. On 9/8 I rec’d a text saying the County had received my ballot and they would text me again after it’s been counted. I still haven’t received that text. SIX days (and counting) to mess with ballots in see-through ballot envelopes.

  4. The mask is coming off for the sheepe welcome to the BANANA REPUBLIC of the USA if you lucky you get cheated out of office if not you are removed by a hail of bullets fired by a lone nut assassin.

  5. 2 weeks ago Brazil had the largest protest in history over their Presidential election coming up in a year. They like President Bolsonaro and want him re-elected. A year ago he was telling the people about hydroxychloroquine… The Empire wants him gone.
    “Congress and the courts also resisted Bolsonaro’s attempt to introduce paper voting receipts as a backup to an electronic voting system which he says is vulnerable to fraud. The electoral court maintains the system is transparent and safe.” https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/07/world/bolsonaro-protest-supporters-brasilia-intl/index.html
    Can’t trust their voting system? Sounds familiar.

  6. Who you vote for makes little difference, if somebody out of tune with the money/power controllers wins they just “Trump” him/her/it.
    So why not have somebody vote for you – similar to having a personal shopper.
    What I want is somebody to take the shots of this fake spike vaccine for me – now that WOULD make a difference.

  7. ….. umm salutations beloved forever Professor JP and great gratitude for years&years of info ….. books ….. et.al.
    ‘it’s kinda like’ and ‘just saying’ we’re all ‘illegals’
    here …. and I’m always late and (forgive if you will) a bit therefore ‘off task’ but
    I keep hearing that there is little or no response to my inherent, or maybe I should say intuitive, or perhaps more core instinctual ‘red alert’ to, this ever extending with never a simple ‘answer’ to assuage (my instinctuals often formidable and way way beyond a simplistic presentation, so called perhaps visceral) to the QUESTION …. WHERE OH WHERE IS THE RECIPE !?? And I keep on, covid (may I say afflicted without uping the difficulties my beloved professor is working to resolve (intentional understatement) with ‘regards’ to how shall I say it?
    something like a reference to overseers …. response engagements ‘on material deemed a bit …. ‘inflammatory’ or perhaps ‘sensationalist’ about an, at least possible topic agreement engagement , called …. a pandemic !???!)
    And so ….
    So as not to dilute or other the topic at hand any further ….
    WHERE OR WHERE IS THE RECIPE!??????!!!!!
    It was …. ummm …. PROMISED …. was it not!?
    So yes …. like if we (who’s dat?) we’re to insist (silly us) on these strange ones coughing up the ‘recipe’ for even just fi zers (yes spelling obtusiveness)
    ummm …. f o r m u l a …. kinda called ‘hey bros what chu got in there’ might (here goes super incipient fa fa fa fantasy) all … yup …. all might tumble and rage toward a kinda ‘deluge’ (oh no! not a penultimate ‘trigger word’ ) …. and we all then might get to resume something or other, maybe somehow we could call …. LIFE

  8. To me, the real question is: Will there ever be bipartisan faith in any major U.S. election again, this one or any other? (Color me skeptical.) The even bigger question is: If not, what then? When the two parties see each other as existential threats to the values each holds dear, the system — if not the culture — is broken.

    1. >Will there ever be bipartisan faith in any major U.S. election again,<
      Well, there shouldn't be, and the faith people had over the last 70 years was mostly an illusion.

      1. I agree. The thing is, as long as most people had faith (justified or not) in the system, you could have some semblance of a coherent, functioning nation. These days, I’m not so sure.

        1. Perhaps in the manner of head buried in the sand, ostrich style. Or, human (some): Taking own ball to another playground. If it works, better than an ulcer, or worse.

    2. The question goes begging, “Since when does it have to be bi-partisan anything when that only serves the Hegelian treachery of gutting the middle. Unacceptable! One is not a schizophrenic psychopath touting either this or that for a tit for tat outcome.

      1. I agree with that too… Unfortunately, the U.S. has had a two-party system, or something similar to it (like federalists vs. antifederalists) from the beginning, and the existing two parties have a stranglehold on power.

    California is casting ballots to the Chemtrial winds of fixed weather.

    The only irregularity the press is fearing?
    A real election!

    If they count the Chinese provisional ballots;
    like the Chines mail-in votes?
    They steal it again; w/the press saying most fair election in history,
    next to the China Joe steal in last national selection.

    The Democratic Party slogan?
    Crime that pays; is crime that wins,
    again & again & again –
    in China Joe’s New World Order U.S.S.A.,
    and, “Do As I Say: But Not As I Do, Newsome”.

    The Democratic Party’s new symbol?
    A social insect, the termite.
    Said to have evolved from the cockroach.

  10. Ok, the Movie Reference is the Untouchables and this line from the great Sean Connery as Officer Malone to Eliot Ness, naive boy crimefighter:

    “What are you prepared to do?”

    “I’m prepared to do anything within the law.”

    “And then what are you prepared to do?”

    If we as a nation are at this point, and California is just a test to better refine cheating tactics for the off year election in 22, than we as people and as a nation will have to answer this question.

    What reforms have been enacted since the criminal ouster of Trump? If I were asked who will win tomorrow I would reply that Larry Elder won but Newsom is declared the Governor. Do you disagree? Really? California votes this day but they and the entire nation will have to ask themselves the question: “What am I prepared to do if it’s clear that the system, including voting, is entirely corrupted.

    We all know the deal. What are we prepared to do?

    Newsom remains governor…They get a test of which outrages get mentioned by us the next day, and they refine their tactics for 22….

    What are we prepared to do?

    Maybe there is a better question: Is there anything that our government wouldn’t do to us if we were in their way or if we deemed to be an annoyance to our government?

    What are we prepared to do?

    1. It appears we aren’t prepared to do anything? 🤔Nobody will fight UNTIL fighting IS THE LAST OPTION. 🤗 sadly IT has not gotten bad enough…yet ? but in the end it always comes done ta an fight always
