    Assertion: If you watch/listen to/read the main-stream media following the mob assault on Congress on 6 January, it is unlikely that your impression of what President Trump actually said is correct.

    I have read the verbatim transcript of the entire speech; It’s 11,400 words long. There are three subjects.

    1) His positive achievement over four years on behalf of all Americans. 2) Election results.
    3) the march from the White House to Capitol Hill.

    I will not belabor his achievements here.

    My intent is to amplify what we have heard about election fraud and to clarify President Trump’s alleged “insurrection.”

    ELECTION FRAUD: First, an assumption. The President used a lot of rounded-off numbers in describing election fraud. Many of you have probably already seen some of those numbers but my assumption is that they were assembled primarily from hundreds of sworn affidavits provided by the patriots who observed the fraudulent activity and had the fortitude to speak out under risk of being charged with perjury if they lied. In the interest of brevity, I plucked them out of some long, rambling sentences and short paragraphs, hopefully, without losing the context. 
    The president said to several thousand supporters at the rally: “In every single swing state, local officials, state officials, almost all Democrats, made illegal and unconstitutional changes to election procedures without the mandated approvals by the state legislatures, that these changes paved the way for fraud on a scale never seen before.”
    PENNSYLVANIA: President Trump went on to point out the following….

    • Over 8,000 ballots were cast by people whose names and dates of birth match individuals who died in 2020 prior to the election.
    • Over 14,000 ballots were cast by out-of-state voters.
    • More than 10,000 votes were counted, even though they were received after Election Day. 
    • 25,000 ballots were requested by nursing home residents, all in a single giant batch, indicating an enormous illegal ballot-harvesting operation.
    • The day before the election, the State of Pennsylvania reported the number of absentee ballots that had been sent out. Yet this number was suddenly and drastically increased by 400,000 people.

    WISCONSIN: President Trump said…

    • Over 170,000 absentee votes were counted in Wisconsin without a valid absentee ballot application.
    • In Madison, 17,000 votes were deposited in so-called human drop boxes in complete defiance of cease-and-desist letters from the state legislature. They came in duffle bags.
    • According to eyewitness testimony, postal service workers in Wisconsin were also instructed to illegally backdate approximately 100,000 ballots.
    • The margin of difference in Biden’s win in Wisconsin was less than 20,000 votes.

    GEORGIA: President Trump pointed out…

    • The absentee/mail-in ballot rejection rate was more than 10 times lower than previous levels. In other words, in a year in which more people were voting by mail for the first time, the rejection rate was drastically lower than it had ever been before. If Georgia had merely rejected the same number of unlawful ballots, as in other years, there should have been approximately 45,000 ballots rejected.
    • In Fulton County, republican poll Watchers were rejected from the room under the false pretense of a burst water main, which we now know was a total lie. Then election officials, when not being monitored, pulled boxes and suitcases of ballots out from under a table. (many of you saw this on television) and illegally scanned them for nearly two hours totally unsupervised. That coincided with a mysterious vote dump of up to 100,000 votes for Joe Biden, almost none for Trump. That was at 1:34am.
    • Over 10,300 ballots were cast by individuals whose names and dates of birth match Georgia residents who died in 2020 prior to the election.
    • More than 2,500 ballots were cast by individuals whose names and dates of birth match incarcerated felons in Georgia prison.
    • More than 4,500 illegal ballots were cast by individuals who do not appear on the state’s own voter rolls.
    • Over 18,000 illegal ballots were cast by individuals who registered to vote using an address listed as vacant, according to the postal service.
    • At least 88,000 ballots were cast by people whose registrations were illegally backdated.
    • 66,000 votes were cast by individuals under the legal voting age.
    • At least 15,000 ballots were cast by individuals who moved out of the state prior to the November 3rd election.
    • Senator William Ligon, chairman of the Georgia Senate Judiciary Subcommittee, and highly respected on elections, has written a letter describing his concerns with Dominion in Georgia. He wrote, and I quote, “The Dominion voting machines employed in Fulton County had an astronomical and astounding 93.67% error rate. In the scanning of ballots requiring a review panel to adjudicate or determine the voter’s interest, in over 106,000 ballots out of a total of 113,000. The source of this astronomical error rate must be identified to determine if these machines were set up or destroyed to allow for a third party to disregard the actual ballot cast by the registered voter.” Trump commented that the national average for such an error rate is far less than 1 percent. The letter continues, “There is clear evidence that tens of thousands of votes were switched from President Trump to former Vice President Biden in several counties in Georgia. For example, in Bibb County, President Trump was reported to have 29, 391 votes at 9:11 PM Eastern time. While simultaneously Vice President Joe Biden was reported to have 17,213. Minutes later, just minutes, at the next update, these vote numbers switched with President Trump going way down to 17,000 and Biden going way up to 29,391. ‘And that was very quick, a 12,000-vote switch, all in Mr. Biden’s favor.’
    • Despite all of this, the margin in Georgia was only 11,779 votes.

    ARIZONA: President Trump said…

    • Over 36,000 ballots were illegally cast by non-citizens.
    • 2,000 ballots were returned with no address.
    • More than 22,000 ballots were received back by election officials before they were supposedly mailed out.
    • 11,600 more ballots and votes were counted than there were actual voters.
    • 150,000 people registered in Mariopa County after the registration deadline.

    NEVADA:  President trump continued…

    • The accuracy settings on signature verification machines were purposely lowered before they were used to count over 130,000 ballots. 
    • There were more than 42,000 double votes in Nevada. 
    • 1,500 ballots were cast by individuals whose names and dates of birth match Nevada residents who died in 2020, prior to November 3rd election.
    • More than 8,000 votes were cast by individuals who had no address.
    • 17,000 ballots were cast by individuals whose names and dates of birth matched people who were deceased.

    MICHIGAN: President Trump pointed out…

    • In Wayne County (Detroit), 174,000 ballots were counted without being tied to an actual registered voter. 
    • Also, in Wayne County, poll watches observed canvassers re-scanning batches of ballots multiple times.
    • In Detroit, turnout was 139 percent of registered voters.
    • Four witnesses testified, under penalty of perjury, that after officials in Detroit announced the last votes had been counted, tens of thousands of additional ballots arrived without required envelopes. Every single one was for a Democrat.
    • At 6:31am, after voting had ended, Michigan suddenly reported 147,000 votes. An astounding 94 percent went to Joe Biden.

    COMMENT: Following the election, President Trump’s lawyers filed approximately 60 lawsuits alleging massive election fraud. Most were based on sworn affidavits from election workers. All of the lawsuits were thrown out by judges. Why?

    In our country, when there is reason to believe a crime has been committed, the following sequence of events follows:

    • There is an investigation by law enforcement officers; police, sheriff, State Bureaus of Investigation, FBI, Special Councils, etc. 
    • Evidence would be gathered and presented to a prosecutor.  
    • If the prosecutor was convinced of a crime it would go to a grand jury. If upheld, individuals would be indicted.
    • A trial would be convened, and for the first time, a judge would become involved. 

    Two things happened in this election fraud scenario;

    1) There is little information to indicate that any of the governors seriously set out to conduct an investigation. 
    2) Three weeks after the election US Attorney General Barr stated, “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

    Because the Trump legal team had no authority to conduct interviews or request warrants to view ballots, the only alternative was for Trump lawyers to take lawsuits directly to the appropriate judge, where they were generally denied because the individuals’ sworn affidavits were considered to be “uncorroborated hearsay”. No thorough investigation. 
    There was another factor in play, time. It was impossible, between 3 November and 20 January to conclude investigations in suspect states and complete a speedy trial. Is that a sufficient excuse to do nothing? I think not. But it begs the question, if we cannot successfully prosecute election fraud in a timely manner, how can we expect to ever have a free and honest election?

    CONCLUSIONS concerning election fraud:

    • There will not be an investigation emanating from the Biden administration. Even if there was an investigation, it would take at least a year and a few folks might go to jail, but would it solve the problem? Probably not. So, what to do?
    • Justice resulting from a long investigation might be satisfying but will it solve the problem? Probably not, and if only10% of President Trump’s above assertions are correct, we need to bring these injustices to an end, forever.
    • In fact, we neither need an investigation of the last election, that train left the station, nor do we need to recount votes.

    There is a simple solution. Voter ID Cards (not voter ID, but a special card); name, photo, expiration date, and an individual voter ID number. When your card is swiped for in-person voting, a ballot will be printed with all of your data on it. Absentee ballot applications must include your voter ID number. Having done that, it is a simple software command that only ballots that have an ID number can be “read” and ballots will be rejected if that ID number has been used during the voting cycle.

    All Congress has to do is be proactive and pass a simple Voter ID Card law. With Voter ID Cards, every alleged voter fraud activity cited by President Trump during his 6 January rally would have been impossible to execute. For a more extensive discussion of Voter ID Cards, see WeThePeopleSpeaking.com, EVERY CITIZEN SHOULD HAVE A VOTER ID CARD, dated 10 December, 2020.
    Given the alleged magnitude of fraud in this past election, without Voter ID Cards, not just voter ID, it is unlikely that we will ever have a legal election again. Next time it will be the Republican’s turn and then it will become a contest to see which political party can out-fraud the other. You can stick a fork in this country, we will be done. A cornerstone of our republic, free and honest elections, will be ripped out of the foundation.

    If you agree with this, please send it along to your Representative and Senators.

    Break, Break (Army speak for “new subject”): back to WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP REALLY SAID AT THE 6 JANUARY RALLY IN WASHINGTON DC.
    If your primary source for current events is the main-stream media, you would believe that on 6 January President Trump riled thousands of supporters into a rabid frenzy and said, grab your M-15 and follow me, we are taking down Congress.

    Not quite: I plucked every reference to Capitol Hill out of his speech. Here is what he actually said…

    • “We’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue and we’re going to the Capitol,”
    • “We’re going to walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators, and congressmen and women.”
    • “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
    • “So, let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. I want to thank you all. God bless you and God bless America.”
    • Later, after the rioting began, he tweeted, “I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, we are the Party of Law & Order, respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you.” 
    • A second tweet, “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful.”

    CONCLUSIONS concerning 6 January riots and follow-on impeachment.

    It is obvious from 20/20 hindsight that the rally was a monumental mistake. The president’s intent to administratively change the outcome of a formal affirmation of the Electoral College victory, was ill-conceived and doomed to failure.

    Since descending on the escalator at Trump Tower five and a half years ago, candidate/President Trump has led hundreds of rallies without a hint of violence by right-wing radicals. My theory is that, with that track-record, the domestic violence intel folks and Capitol Police believed the likelihood of an attack on the Capitol Building was low to none. Had they been better prepared, perhaps the outcome would have been less tragic.

    One week later, without investigations by House committees and without the opportunity to mount a defense, President Trump was impeached by a House up-or-down vote for “incitement of insurrection.”

    Whether or not President Trump should have been impeached by the House goes to the question of intent. What did he mean by “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”? I believe it is abundantly clear the president’s words spoken to the thousands of supporters were not intended to promote violence by radical thugs, a very small percentage of the total rally participants.
    The impeachment has to do with one thing, Pelosi’s intent. She is without a doubt the most vengeful, hate-filled senior elected official in my long lifetime of following politics.

     As Victor Davis Hanson to eloquently pointed out a few days ago, “From now on, House impeachment will be used by the out-party as a periodic club to wound a first-term president”. 
    Bottom line: While listening to President Biden’s single-subject inauguration speech, I was hopeful that his words would be followed with commensurate actions. For example, a simple private phone call to Pelosi could have eliminated impeachment and sent a positive message to 74 million Trump supporters. Instead, the Biden administration’s intent is very clear, they will continue to foster a culture of hate for everything President Trump did for this country.

    These assertions are frankly disgusting. Trump’s actions were indefensible. End of story.

    So all that Trump said is that the election was stolen (though that doesn’t appear to be supported by evidence) and that people have to fight and match on the capital and his henchman Rudy blathered some stuff about trial by combat which Trump seemed to go along with quite happily. So all in all it’s pretty hard to say he didn’t entice the mob you’d have to think. Or am I missing something? You explain how this is ok? How?

    Interesting that the Citizens Journal “moderator” thinks criminal Trump didn’t incite the riots and is suppressing anyone who thinks he did. This publication is complicit in insurrection and censorship of the truth.

    Sounds as though this “Moderator” is a law unto themselves in shutting down free speech. And they’ve made a decision for themselves on trumps innocence. That’s mighty shakey ground and it’s not San Andreas fault.

    Thank you for providing that, Susan and proving the truth of the article. I read the speech again and there is no “incitement” or “:insurrection.” Twice he said to “fight”, just like politicians of all stripes do. at least he didn’t say “if they bring a knife, you bring a gun” like Obama. The most powerful words though, were directed to the massive election fraud and evidence of it, which the author of the article referred to. In the first few minutes of the speech, he urged his followers to be peaceful.

    Of the million who attended, all but a couple of hundred did just that. Of the couple of hundred who entered the Capitol building, only a couple of dozen got unruly. Most attendees couldn’t even get close enough to hear the speech. The ones who entered the Capitol were mostly there during Trump’s speech.

    If there was any incitement or insurrection, it was by the ones who created the massive fraud, enabled it, or covered it up,

    You have listed what Trump said about the election, but you have not mentioned that most (possibly all) has been shown to be false.

    You have picked out what he said directly about the Capitol, but you have omitted what he said about Pence, about many of the Republican members of Congress, and, of course, the lies identified in my first paragraph, all of which served to stoke the anger of those attending.
    Plus lines like “We fight like hell, and if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

    And, of course, you omitted Rudy Giuliani’s prequel supported by Trump:
    Rudy: “Let’s have trial by combat”.
    Trump: “And Rudy, you did a great job

    And, yes, I have read the transcript of his entire speech.

    There were thousands of complaints, hundreds of affidavits, live testimony, numerous hearings, even some videos and pics to back him up, troll. So, no his statements weren’t false.

    As far as saying “fight,” that is no different than political rhetoric used by Left/Democrats for political fighting. Certainly not as bad as Obama saying if they bring a knife, we bring a gun.

    You lefties are in denial that the real “incitement” and “insurrection” is by the perpetrators, enablers and cover-uppers of the outrageous election fraud. The reaction by the Right has been incredibly mild. Trust me, you do NOT want to see the Right do a true insurrection. But when all due process is denied, no alternative remains. A huge mistake by the overconfident Left. There are still 30 open court cases. If those too are squelched, watch out!

    Great article – but… “a simple software command” can be reversed or hacked by another ‘software command’. So I am wary of this solution.
