… The reason I say this to you is because every mania since 1918 has led to a major market crash over the past 100 years.

Ballots that cannot be processed by voting equipment such as Dominion without human intervention. That should not occur in the hundreds of thousands or high percentages of batches. Yet this happened in Arizona, Georgia and Michigan and is not getting the attention it should receive. Apparently Maricopa County AZ had over 200,000 adjudicated ballots. Dominion Voting Systems facilitates the rapid adjudication of ballots giving the operator the ability to decide voter intent and create a new ballot. This is supposed to happen with oversight from political party reps as witnesses. Affidavits and testimony have indicated the oversight was often missing. Citizen Wells recommends focusing on the audit of Adjudicated ballots.

“Note to Arizona Senate from a Former International Audit Executive: If Audit Resources are Limited – FOCUS ON THE BALLOTS”“Tonight we want to provide some words of advice to the Arizona Senate.I was an international audit executive in Hong Kong for a decade. I looked at thousands of data sets and performed audits of the accuracy of the data in relation to the underlying contract. After doing this for years I learned one key thing:” “If resources are a challenge then the Arizona Senate should select the review of the ballots. Based on my experience looking at huge data sets with millions of records and looking into systems as well, if you want to identify fraudulent activities or activities that don’t comply with the law, then focus on the ballots. One individual who we became aware of since the election is Jovan Pulitzer. He claims he can review tens of thousands of ballots in a few hours. He also is an expert in paper ballots and machine interactions. If resources such as time and money are a challenge then Pulitzer should be hired to do the job. Pulitzer was invited to perform work by the Georgia Senate as well:”https://www.youtube.com/embed/rrxfzoZRyao?version=3&rel=1&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&fs=1&hl=en-gb&autohide=2&wmode=transparent https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/01/note-arizona-senate-international-audit-executive-audit-resources-limited-focus-ballots/

“93.69 PERCENT ADJUDICATION LEVEL
During the Georgia Senate election hearing on December 30, 2020, it was revealed 106,000 out of 113,130 ballots had to be adjudicated. 93.69 percent. This happened on election night.”
“96.45 PERCENT ADJUDICATION LEVEL
Now we learn that on November 5, 2020, 132,272 out of 137,134 ballots scanned had to be adjudicated. That is 96.45 %!!!Furthermore: In one county. In 2 batches. A total of 238,272!
Virtually impossible these were all normal voter mistakes.
- Were the ballots misprinted? An honest mistake.
- Were the ballots misprinted to force adjudication?
- Were new ballots created in the process?
- If the old ballots were retained, how were they processed in a recount.
- Supposedly 132,272 ballots were adjudicated the night before the morning of November 5.
GA election official Richard Barron stated the following on election night:“THE ONLY BALLOTS THAT ARE ADJUDICATED ARE IF WE HAVE A BALLOT IN WHICH THERE IS SOME QUESTION AS TO HOW THE COMPUTER READS IT. SO THE VOTE REVIEW PANEL THEN DETERMINES VOTER INTENT.”
MAJOR RED FLAG!!!”
“6. The allowable election error rate established by the Federal Election Commission guidelines is of 1 in 250,000 ballots (.0008%). We observed an error rate of 68.05%. This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity. 7. The results of the Antrim County 2020 election are not certifiable. This is a result of machine and/or software error, not human error. 8. The tabulation log for the forensic examination of the server for Antrim County from December 6, 2020 consists of 15,676 individual events, of which 10,667 or 68.05% of the events were recorded errors. These errors resulted in overall tabulation errors or ballots being sent to adjudication. This high error rates proves the Dominion Voting System is flawed and does not meet state or federal election laws.”https://citizenwells.com/2021/01/14/michigan-sos-jocelyn-benson-election-chicanery-exposed-judge-elsenheimer-orders-release-of-communications-with-us-mi-legislatures-dominion-social-media/

Joe Biden is constantly talking about unity but his behavior and the behavior of people around him says something completely different.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich suggests that want Biden really wants is conformity.
It makes sense, doesn’t it?
Gingrich writes at FOX News:
Newt Gingrich: Biden says ‘unity’ but he really means ‘conformity’ – here’s what the real deal would look like
There seems to be a continued, deep split between the message of unity the President Joe Biden administration would like us to hear – and what its actions are communicating.
Again, President Biden’s inaugural address was great. It hit the right themes of bringing people together as Americans. But he promptly walked up to the White House and created dissonance with his first volley of clearly partisan left-wing executive orders.
Much of his first week has been filled with the consequences of these divisive orders.
More and more people are realizing that President Biden’s order to disallow discrimination based on gender or gender identity in Title IX essentially eliminates women’s sports.
Keep in mind: One of the main features of Title IX, when it was passed in 1972, ensured that colleges and universities that receive federal funding offered sporting programs in which women could compete. Without Title IX, women – most of whom cannot physically compete with male athletes due to differences in musculature and hormones – didn’t have the same athletic opportunities their male cohorts had.
Gingrich has also been critical of Biden on Twitter lately. Take a look:
As usual, Gingrich offers analysis that cuts like a knife.

The story of the American video game retailer went viral after a group of Reddit users launched a flash-mob, gobbling up the firm’s shares. The campaign resulted in GameStop’s stock price growing over 1,800 percent.
The move washed billions of dollars out of the biggest hedge funds, which were short-selling the stock. Short-sellers commonly borrow shares in failing companies, hoping that, as the price falls further, they’ll sell the borrowed shares cheaper, pay back their lenders, and keep the profit.
RT talked to market analysts to find out what impact the battle of amateur traders and big investors may have on the financial markets and who will come out on top.
“This all-in wrestling will meet with mixed success,” Petr Pushkarev, chief analyst at TeleTrade told RT. “Sooner or later, financial sharks will win, as big hedge fund managers don’t want lose billions due to flash-mobs.”
The expert highlighted that the US authorities would protect the interests of big investors. The latest artificially accelerated rally has already attracted the attention of US regulators and politicians who took steps to promptly halt trading.
US regulators may outlaw such flash-mob activity by amateur investors in the future, according to senior analyst at Forex Optimum, Aleksander Rozman.
“They will find the ‘guilty party’, accuse them of driving up prices of GameStop shares, and punish them publicly,” the expert said, stressing that a scapegoat has already appeared.
Earlier, Reuters reported that a 34-year-old YouTube streamer helped drive a surge in the shares of GameStop. Keith Patrick Gill is a financial advisor from Massachusetts and until recently worked for insurance giant MassMutual.
The economic impact of Covid-19 on regular folk across the globe is as devastating as the physical toll it has taken, but we can’t just blame the super rich(er) for our woes – the true villains are much closer to home.
In a simple comparison, two headlines seem to say it all about the economic impact of the Covid-19 crisis: the first, from Business Insider, reads “Billionaires made $3.9 trillion during the pandemic” while the second, from The Guardian, shouts “Covid-19 has cost global workers $3.7 trillion in lost earnings.”
A classic case of robbing Peter to pay Paul, it would appear at first glance but of course, the world doesn’t work that way and the two ideas behind the headlines are not directly related, no matter what your bicycle-riding, woolly-sweater wearing, craft-beer-quaffing socialist pals might say.
But that doesn’t make the news any easier to swallow. Frankly, I couldn’t care less about the world’s billionaires, and maybe one day soon I won’t have to. They seem intent on moving to Mars in their big rockets where their wacked-out ideas and dreams of a super-race can become a problem for the little green men to deal with.
However, their surging wealth has become a headline writer’s dream. Added to those already cited, the BBC trumpets that the increase in wealth of the 10 richest men in the world during the pandemic would cover the cost of vaccinating every single person on the planet. It’s not fair! It’s just not fair!
But it is no use bleating about this. It’s our fault. Stuck at home while riding out this damned virus, we’ve been online around the clock, buying stuff we don’t need to have it delivered by Amazon, streaming hours and hours of online entertainment, addictively watching Tiktok and furiously messaging on social media, all activities that are unwittingly causing a boom in stock prices for all those global tech giants and their oddball owners – people like Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk and Bill Gates.
Not everyone is cashing in our boredom. Nope, there are serial investors out there who pre-pandemic already suffered from the condition of having way too much money at their disposal. People who share the outlook of 19th century American robber baron, John D. Rockefeller who admitted, “I always tried to turn every disaster into an opportunity.” Men like Warren Buffet, the so-called Sage of Omaha, who has made more than $20 billion since last March.
Unfortunately, his good fortune comes not by selling anything the rest of the world can use – like free care homes for the elderly and vulnerable or a reliable Covid-19 vaccine that everyone clamours to buy – it’s through smart investment of his existing billions.
All this would be easy to shrug off – oh well, that’s just the way it is – if it wasn’t for the incredible tsunami-like impact that the coronavirus pandemic has had on our national economies and our everyday lives that can be seen with a cursory glance at the graphs and tables that chart such effects.
While we each come to terms with our own new normal, the collective overview is alarming. Every major economy is struggling with rising unemployment. Up 11 percent in Italy in 2020 compared with 2019. Nearly nine percent in the US and France. Some 5.4 per cent in the UK and 4.3 in the European powerhouse, Germany.
Across the globe, shoppers have vanished with retail footfall down 97 percent in Germany, 78 percent in the UK, 65 percent in France and Canada, and 20 percent in the USA, the biggest economy on the planet.
Global tourism has been crushed, with 2020 a total washout for everywhere from Thailand to Brazil to Italy and France. The airline industry? Devastated. This means millions of jobs lost, many of which may never return.
There is no need to go on. Unless you’re a billionaire, let’s face it, the figures suck.
You can believe that as a result of the collapse in our economies, and the jobs that have followed down that big black hole, lost earnings from workers could quite easily total that estimated $3.7 trillion figure. You’d have to bet it will be even higher once the various government-backed furlough schemes and income support grants inevitably come to an end in countries like the UK.
It would be fun to paint the world’s billionaires as evil puppet masters bent on global domination and the development of a Mars-bound master race, sucking up the wages of the world’s workers so they can buy more rocket fuel and mansions built into mountains, but sadly the reality is far more prosaic.
All governments were caught criminally flat-footed by this pandemic and everyone has subsequently paid a terrible price. Years of complacency, cuts to public health budgets and dismissive approaches to warnings of a global pandemic are what got us where we are.
The shambolic handling of the Covid-19 crisis cannot be blamed on crooked billionaires scheming away in their secret island hideaways, but can be laid at the feet of the very politicians that we ourselves elected, operating in plain sight.
It is essential that we remember this the next time these true villains want something from us – like votes – or we risk this all happening again.
What more needs to be said. He called it, now he’s acting it out.
… Maricopa County officials have feuded with state lawmakers for weeks following the November elections over access to their voting equipment and records. The debate sparked a legal fight in December when Republican state senators sued the county to force it to turn over copies of ballots and other records in accordance with subpoenas issued by lawmakers.
