US POLLS: Biden Campaign Director Arrested For Electoral Fraud

A political director for the Joe Biden campaign has been arrested for electoral fraud.

The Democrat Director of Texas state political strategy for the Joe Biden Presidential campaign has been arrested for electoral fraud.

Democratic Party operative Dallas Jones was formally accused of helping to run an illegal ballot harvesting operation in the state of Texas on behalf of the Joe Biden campaign during this contested Presidential election.

According to the National File, two investigators, including a former FBI agent and former police officer, testified under oath that they have Democratic Party internal documentation, as well as video evidence and witnesses, for their investigation.

The following is an affidavit from private investigator and retired Houston police officer Mark A. Aguirre, which was submitted under oath.

“My name is Mark A. Aguirre. I am above the age of eighteen years and am fully competent to make this affidavit. The facts stated in this affidavit are within my personal knowledge and are true and correct.

“I am a retired captain with the Houston Police Department. I am now a private investigator.

“I am currently involved in an investigation related to a wide-ranging and fraudulent ballot harvesting scheme in Harris County intended to rig the elections in the Houston/Harris County area. This scheme involves voter fraud on a massive scale.

“Based on interviews, review of documents, and other information, I have identified the individuals in charge of the ballot harvesting scheme.

These individuals include political consultant Dallas Jones, who was recently hired by the Joe Biden for President campaign to oversee their Harris County initiative, District 13 Texas State Senator Borris Miles, who is the handler of Mr. Jones, political consultant Gerald Womack, and Precinct 1 Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis.

One of the companies these individuals are using as a front for this operation is AB Canvassing, although there are others that have been identified that we are investigating.”

“I have in my possession video-taped interviews of witnesses attesting to the aforementioned people having groups of people completing thousands of absentee and mail-in ballots, including completing ballots for deceased individuals; illegally going into nursing homes, with the complicity of the nursing home staff, and filling out and forging the signatures of nursing home residents; signing up homeless individuals to vote using the ballot harvester’s address, then completing the ballot and forging the homeless individual’s signature.

“This entire operation is being run by the elite politicians of the Democrat Party in Houston/Harris County.”

US ELECTIONS:FEC Chairman Debunks MSM Claims Of ‘No Fraud’, Says Counting Illegal Votes Can Make Election ‘Illegitimate’

The chairman of the Federal Elections Commission (FEC), Trey Trainor, said reports of voter fraud in key battleground states are credible.

In a recent interview, he pointed out that Democrat officials removing GOP poll watchers from polling locations is a violation of state law and federal court orders.

“When you have claims of, you know, 10,000 people who don’t live in the state of Nevada having voted in Neveda, you have the video…they’re (poll workers) either duplicating a spoiled ballot there or they’re in the process of marking a ballot that came in blank for a vote,” Trainor explained.

The FEC chief added, he agrees with the Trump campaign’s lawsuits and said their observers were denied meaningful access. Trainor also said questionable actions by the Democrats may render this election illegitimate.

“That’s a process that is to be observed by election observers, the law allows those observers to be in there,” he continued. “And if they’re not then the law is not being followed, making this an illegitimate election.”

In recent days, the mainstream media has continued to claim there was no voter fraud in this year’s elections, but Trainor’s statements reveal this election is far from over.

Why Buhari, Buni, APC and Nigerians must Reclaim Edo State, By Sebastine Ebhuomhan

A lot has happened in the past month in Edo State, Nigeria and the globe.

The dusts of some of the occurrences naturally settled in the gale of laughter, shock, unbelief and outrage. Others are still reverberating on individuals, families, communities, states and humanity.

While another lockdown looms, the world is confronted by the socio-economic impacts of coronavirus. Then #EndSARS left Nigeria in ruins. A supposed peaceful protest against brutality and extra-judicial killing degenerated into lawlessness and disorder when hoodlums hijacked it and unleashed mayhem, raping, looting, arson and destruction on national psyche and polity.

#EndSARS reverberated nationally and gained international traction. Sadly, tens of citizens had died by the time bellowing smokes settled for stock taking. It claimed youthful and elderly lives, including security agents drafted to restore sanity. As a tribute to victims who lost lives, have physical pains and who lost properties, businesses or employments, may God comfort you all.

Following the wise call-off of all protests, citizens should support state judicial panels to take stock, learn lessons and make recommendations, in line with presidential directive. However, government at all levels must listen, speak and act promptly in the future and pacify aggrieved citizens, when necessary. Leaders must deliver good governance, secure lives and protect properties to nip future tragedy in the bud.

In the meantime, Ondo State election came with marked improvement from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) under Prof Mahmud Yakubu’s chairmanship. Buoyed by its victory in Edo State, which dispute is the subject of this essay, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had hoped to enlarge its coast in South West by adding Ondo to Oyo. But the party not only watched its cookies crumbled helplessly, the loss forced a soul searching. Edo and Ondo elections are proof that elections can be true reflection of people’s will, if organized in enabling environments.

For President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), who has unfairly been the butt of wild allegations against his party, Edo and Ondo clearly point to cleaner elections under his administration. Unlike in Edo State, the President led his party’s Ondo campaign after tasking institutions and agencies with credible election. While he watched Edo APC torn into pieces by internal crisis fueled externally, resulting to the cancellation of APC’s final rally that gave the upper hand to PDP, Buhari personally addressed voters in Ondo State in a virtual live telecast with the support of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo. He admonished politicians on do-or-die election, a masterstroke that sealed PDP defeat.

“I have taken a special interest not necessarily because my party is involved but because my focus and attention have been to ensure that we maximize every given opportunity to raise the bar in our collective desire to deepen democracy,” he clarified.

Indeed, the Buhari government is tackling infrastructure rot with zest. But his detractors harp on non-passage of Electoral Reform Bill, among other key indices. That no mountain was made of the molehill after Edo and Ondo elections owes much to the observed marked improvement. As the administration makes elections credible, improve human rights, reform the police, it must also confront insecurity, corruption, inequity, unemployment and road construction to safeguard lives, reduce pains, improve businesses and tackle widespread poverty.

No democracy is immune to abuse. As the 2020 American presidential election showed, it takes citizens and institutions to strengthen democratic foundation. The American judiciary rose to the occasion when it was called. If not, the attempt to halt vote counting, galvanize violence and disrupt the election would have succeeded with irreparable damaged to America’s over 200-year-old democracy. Congratulations to Mr. Joe Biden, Senator Kamala Harris and The Democrats.

One of the problems Edo APC had before election was the gang-up against the no-nonsense leadership of erstwhile National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. A splinter of desperate party men led by Governor Godwin Obaseki, in cahoots with over-ambitious governors across parties, mobilized to overthrow the party’s elected National Working Committee. They successfully removed the NWC, paving way for the Governor Mala Buni-led Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, but not until after exposing themselves as 2023 desperadoes. One of the ‘offences’ unfairly levelled against Oshiomhole was the loss of Bayelsa State governorship election in the court of law. As the court judgment against APC Deputy Governor-elect ordered, PDP’s Duoye Diri was sworn-in as Governor after the initial winner, APC’s David Lyon, had concluded oath-taking preparations. Governor Obaseki, an APC Governor then, celebrated the judgment in Edo State.

Obaseki was later disqualified for lack of certificates by the Oshiomhole-led APC, which opted to field a qualified candidate, Pastor Andrew Osagie Ize-Iyamu. Thereafter, he dumped APC, picked PDP’s ticket and won the election on 19th September. Seeing how he was exposed after his 2016 election victory by the same PDP, Obaseki knows he would be walking a tight rope once the election predictably returned for judicial interpretation at the courts, where he and his Deputy, Philip Shaibu, are now on cliff-hanger battling to save their plum offices and political careers.

Over time, the celebration of Bayelsa APC’s loss and by extension, the fall of Oshiomhole, has continued to haunt the people that made it fait accompli. As events have now shown, Oshiomhole was not the problem of APC. Six months after Oshiomhole left office, another monumental political disaster is about to befall Bayelsa APC. Last week, a High Court disqualified the party’s candidate for Bayelsa West District bye-election and former Deputy Governor, Peremobowei Ebebi, after verifying his eligibility. With this fresh crisis in Bayelsa APC, the PDP flagbearer and immediate past Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson is assured of an easy victory.

Meanwhile, Edo State Government continues its plans for a low-key inauguration ceremony in Benin City scheduled for 12th November. But the allegations of perjury and forgery on the necks of Governor Godwin Obaseki and Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, have overshadowed what should have been another historic moment. They are yoked by a two-prong cases simultaneously at the Edo Governorship Election Petition tribunal in Benin City and the Federal High Court in Abuja. There are five petitions at the tribunal contesting his alleged ineligibility, INEC’s omission of names or logos and malpractices. On the other hand, there are two pre-election cases at the Federal High Court in Abuja seeking to determine authenticity of Obaseki and Shaibu’s educational claims and their eligibility.

The tribunal began sitting penultimate Friday. The following Wednesday, Federal High Court heard the cases and adjourned to 16th November.

Candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Iboi Emmanuel apparently filed the most germane petition at the tribunal. Mr. Emmanuel took 3rd position in the election. He is praying the tribunal to disqualify Obaseki, sack him for forgery and re-allocate his votes to others since the Governor was ineligible to contest the election, ab initio, according to Section 138 (1) (a) of the Electoral Act 2010 as amended.

Ize-Iyamu, runner-up in the election, further explained the Abuja cases. “On our part, we have filed two pre-election cases against the PDP and its flagbearer challenging their eligibility to contest the election. These are lawful and integral parts of the electoral process in any democracy, which we must all respect and acknowledge as genuine democrats. The outcome of these pending cases has direct effect on the election.”

Beside the inconsistency in his NYSC Discharge Certificate, there are many questions the cases seek to answer on Obaseki. One, how could the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan from December 1975 to November 1979, Prof Tekena Tamuno, who died in 2015, sign Obaseki’s re-issued certificate for the election? Two, why is Obaseki’s date of admission into UI inconsistent with the date of his graduation? Three, how did he obtain UI admission and degree in Classics with just three passes (excluding English and Mathematics)? Four, his acclaimed A-Level etc.

The PDP has admitted error in Obaseki’s certificates. On its part, INEC revealed it did not investigate Obaseki’s certificates and disclosed it lacks the power to disqualify him. The drama will reach full circle in the coming days.

Democracy is more than election. Election is more than voting. Election is regulated by laws that must be obeyed. Leaders cannot approbate and reprobate at will or at whims and caprices. They cannot praise a sore loser in another clime who sought unsuccessfully to abort a democratic process before running to the court and condemn contestants here that peacefully approach the judiciary for proper interpretation of perjury and forgery. Nobody goes to equity with soiled hands. Edo State deserves more than liars and crooks as leaders.

Considering how Obaseki and PDP are surreptitiously pursuing their own baseless and rudderless pre-election cases against APC and its candidate, the exercising of Ize-Iyamu’s legal rights must be commended, respected, supported and pursued, logically, by all democrats, nonetheless President Buhari and APC leadership. That is one apt way to raise the national democratic bar.

Bayelsa By-Election: Court Dismiss Case Seeking Dickson’s Disqualification

The Federal High Court Seating un Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital has dismissed a case seeking the disqualification of the former Bayelsa state governor, Seriake Dickson from contesting in the upcoming by-election.

The lawsuit was filed by one Eneoriekumoh Owoupele against Dickson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), seeking to bar him from contesting in the Bayelsa West Senatorial by-election.

Owoupele had alleged in the suit No. FHC/YNG/CS/72/2020 that the Independent National Electoral Commission Form EC9, which the PDP candidate submitted to the commission, contained false information.

But the presiding judge, Justice Jane Inyang, in her judgment on Wednesday, struck out the case “for lack of jurisdiction.”

She also ruled that the plaintiff, through his lawyers, A.O Aniso and E. A Aluzu, brought the matter before the court after the stipulated time.

Owoupele was seeking to disqualify Dickson from participating in the bye-election for allegedly supplying false information to the INEC.

US ELECTIONS: AG William Barr Authorizes Dep of Justice to Look into Voting Irregularities

Attorney General William Barr in a memo issued on Monday authorized the Justice Department (DOJ) to look into voting irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.

The memo was addressed and signed from Barr to U.S. Attorneys, the assistant attorneys general for the DOJ’s criminal division, civil rights division, the national security division, and the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Christopher Wray.

“Now that the voting has concluded, it is imperative that the American people can trust that our elections were conducted in such a way that the outcomes accurately reflect the will of the voters,” the memo read.

Barr’s memo comes after 39 House Republicans pressed Barr in a letter on Friday to allow available DOJ resources to look into allegations of voting irregularities across the country in several key battleground states. The Trump campaign has filed a number of lawsuits in some of those states.

Barr said in his memo that, although the states have the primary responsibility to conduct and supervise elections, the DOJ has “an obligation to ensure that federal elections are conducted in such a way that the American people can have full confidence in their electoral process and their government.”

He added that while “most allegations” of purported election misconduct are of such a scale that they would not impact the outcome of an election that their investigation can be deferred, “that is not always the case.”

He said concerns that overt actions taken by the DOJ in this case are greatly minimized, since the voting has concluded.

He also said he has already authorized the DOJ to pursue substantial allegations of voting and voting tabulation irregularities in specific instances.

“Given this, and given that voting in our current elections has now concluded, I authorize you to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions in certain cases, as I have already done in specific instances,” he said.

He said inquiries and reviews may be conducted if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual state.

“While U.S. Attorneys maintain their inherent authority to conduct inquiries and investigations as they deem appropriate, it will likely be prudent to commence any election-related matters as a preliminary inquiry, so as to assess whether available evidence warrants further investigative steps,” he said.

He also urged for the DOJ to exercise “great care and judgment’ and not launch inquiries on “specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims.”

He noted that his authorization of investigations should not be taken as an indication that the DOJ has concluded that voting irregularities have impacted the outcome of the election, but to ensure trust in the voting process.

“I provide this authority and guidance to emphasize the need to timely and appropriately address allegations of voting irregularities so that all of the American people, regardless of their preferred candidate or party, can have full confidence in the results of our elections,” he said.

“The American people and the leaders they freely elect deserve nothing less,” he said.

BREAKING: ‘The election is far from over’, Trump reacts over media’s projection of Biden as winner

United States President Donald Trump has reacted to the projection of Joe Biden as winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.

Trump in statement he personally signed, accused Biden of claiming victory.

“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.”

Trump said in Pennsylvania, for example, his campaign’s legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process.

The Republican stressed that legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.

He said from Monday, his campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.

“The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters.”

Trump added that only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room – and then fight in court to block their access.

“So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands”, the statement added.

Joe Biden projected to become next America’s president as President Trump heads to Supreme Court

Joe Biden of America’s Democratic Party has been projected to take office as the next president of the United States.

According to various news networks CNN, NBC, Sky News and Aljazeera, Biden was projected to win the 20 electoral votes from Pennsylvania which takes his tally to 273 electoral college while President Donald Trump has 214 electoral college.

A candidate needs to win 270 electoral votes to become President.

President Donald Trump however, has alleged massive fraud in the electoral process, and announced intentions to file a suit to challenge the results at the Supreme Court.

If Biden is sworn in, he will be the 46th president of the United States, and oldest so far, at the age of 78.

US ELECTIONS: Armed men arrested in Philadelphia were trying to deliver truck full of fake ballots

Two armed Virginia men who were arrested Thursday outside the Philadelphia Convention Center were “coming to deliver a truck full of fake ballots” to the city, CNN affiliate KYW reported, citing prosecutors.

The center is one of the places where election workers have been counting votes from the 2020 general election, which includes the race for president.
Text messages reveal that the men were concerned about the tallying of votes at the convention center, prosecutors said, according to KYW.

Antonio LaMotta, 61, and Joshua Macias, 42, both of Chesapeake, Virginia, were arrested Thursday night outside the center on suspicion of carrying handguns in Pennsylvania without permits, authorities said.
Philadelphia police said they found the men Thursday night after receiving a tip that people with firearms were heading to the Pennsylvania Convention Center in a silver Hummer truck.

Officers found a silver Hummer a block from the center — parked and unoccupied — around 10:20 p.m. Thursday, about seven minutes before finding the men, who acknowledged the Hummer was theirs, police said.
Both men were carrying loaded handguns, and police found an AR-type rifle in the Hummer, authorities said at a news conference Friday. About 160 rounds of ammunition were found in the weapons and the vehicle, authorities said.
Stickers and a hat with logos of the QAnon conspiracy movement were found in the vehicle, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said.
LaMotta and Macias were charged with having a concealed firearm without a license and carrying a firearm on a public street or public property, Krasner said.

“This alarming incident is still very much under investigation regarding additional charges,” Krasner said.

LaMotta and Macias were arraigned Friday night, and a judge set bail at $750,000 each, Krasner’s spokeswoman Jane Roh said.

Details about the alleged fake ballots — including where they came from, whether they were found in the Hummer, or what was marked on them — weren’t immediately available.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the men had legal representation. CNN has sought comment from the Philadelphia Public Defenders Office and LaMotta’s relatives.
A woman who was traveling with the men has not been arrested, Krasner said.

A hat with the QAnon logo was found in the Hummer, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said.

A hat with the QAnon logo was found in the Hummer, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said.

Suspect said he needed to take leave to go to Philadelphia, employer says
LaMotta told his work supervisor a few days ago that he needed leave for an “assignment” in Philadelphia, according to the CEO of the company that employs him.
LaMotta works in the Virginia area for Nationwide Investigations & Security, a Houston-based security services firm, according to company CEO Allen Hollimon and LaMotta’s personal website.

Hollimon told CNN that LaMotta this week told his supervisor he needed to take leave for the “assignment” in Philadelphia that was not assigned through the company.

Hollimon said he did not know why LaMotta was in Philadelphia and emphasized that he believes he is “a good guy.”

“He’s a very devoted guy. I’ve never had an issue with him,” Hollimon told CNN. “He’s not a threat.”

LaMotta’s website, which has since been taken down, described him as a “crisis response, security, fugitive recovery agent, bodyguard, security contractor.”

The website included his date of birth and hometown, both of which matched information shared by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office.
The website displayed pictures of him posing beside a silver Hummer. It also detailed his work experience, including his work at Nationwide Investigation & Security, as well as documents related to a military discharge.

The website detailed other work experience, including for the Virginia city of Chesapeake, where he lives.

LaMotta was a facilities maintenance technician for the city from August 2014 to May 2019, Chesapeake spokesman Heath Covey told CNN. Cover said he could not provide details about why LaMotta left the job.
