In Part 1 of this article, we covered social media censorship and how President Trump is standing up to defend the truth. But what was the final straw that led to the recent Executive Order? It turns out that it was another attempt by big tech and the mainstream media to cover up the truth.
And that’s why we need to talk about VOTER FRAUD.
Online Manipulation, Lies, Perception, Leading to Voter Fraud
This entire debacle (as it so often does) began with a Tweet. Last Tuesday, the President tweeted about the fraud inherent in mail-in ballots.
There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent,” Trump tweeted. “Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed. The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one. “
He added, “This will be a Rigged Election. No way!”

Twitter then added a new label to his tweets, calling them “unsubstantiated” and linking to articles that praise the idea of mail-in ballots. But there are two major issues here.
First, our voting system is rife with fraud and corruption (and no one wants to talk about it).
Second, Twitter’s “fact-checker” is both incorrect about mail-in ballots and beyond biased when it comes to the President (and conservatives in general).
In fact, most of the major players in tech and media have been quietly using their power to silence the truth and sway information in their favor.
Let’s address that first.
The head of Twitter’s “Site Integrity” department, Yoel Roth, has a long history of slandering the President and his staff as well as conservative Midwesterners.
In a series of tweets from 2017, Roth called members of the Trump administration “Nazis,” even comparing Kellyanne Conway to Joseph Goebbels (The Nazi “Minister of Propaganda”).
He also said that “flyover states” (states often passed during intercoastal flights) are racist. That’s right: according to Twitter’s “Head of Integrity,” if you live in the Gulf coast, Great Plains, Rocky Mountains, or Appalachia (a majority of America), YOU are a racist.
Perhaps unsurprising is the fact that most of Twitter’s “facts” come from the ultra-biased and anticonservative fake news media, including hit pieces by CNN and the Washington Post. Conway, who is a counselor to Trump, lashed out at Roth during an interview with Fox & Friends on Wednesday and went as far as giving out his Twitter handle on live television.
“This guy is constantly attacking Trump voters, Trump, Mitch McConnell, you name it. He’s the head of integrity at Twitter,” Conway said. “It’s horrible the way he looks at people who should otherwise have a free and clear platform on Twitter.”
In a world where social media is a major source of information for elected officials, neighbors, news outlets, and even emergency services, we cannot tolerate the silencing of conservative voices (or any voices for that matter). These things matter, and we see the results at the polls.
Our good friend, Dr. Robert Epstein, has spent more than seven years conducting rigorous scientific research that shows the enormous power that Google has to shift votes and opinions any way it likes, and we know from company donations and recent leaks that Google leans heavily toward Democrats. According to Epstein, bias built into Google’s processes could have cost Republicans three California congressional districts in the last election. Epstein said, “In 2016, biased search results generated by Google’s search algorithm likely impacted undecided voters in a way that gave at least 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton (whom I supported). “
A Twitter battle ensued between HRC and Epstein, and this tweet was the pinnacle of that battle:
BTW, although losing Misti is devastating for me – there will never be another Misti in my life, after all – I AM STILL NOT SUICIDAL. Hear that, #Google? Hear that, #Hillary?https://t.co/6EnwQ5BNC0 (2-min. video) pic.twitter.com/V4eoAvDfnD

Some of Epstein’s research has focused on the power that Google’s “autocomplete” search suggestions have to shift people’s votes and opinions without their knowledge. Using suggestive phrases like “Hillary Clinton is” or “anti-Donald Trump,” Epstein repeatedly checked to see whether the search engine was offering more denigrating search suggestions for one candidate. He found that in the summer of 2016, it was nearly impossible to get Google to suggest negative search queries for Clinton, but easy to get negative search suggestions for Senator Bernie Sanders (D–VT) or for Donald Trump and other Republican primary candidates. Epstein found that the search engine suggested “Little Marco” and “Lying Ted”—two of Trump’s infamous derogatory monikers—but would would never suggest “Crooked Hillary.”
Search engine algorithms are proprietary, so it’s impossible to know with certainty what controls the results. For example, a search engine could come up with auto-fill suggestions based on everything from someone’s personal browsing history to their location (based on internet protocol address) or even the sum results of everyone else’s search queries. In response to separate allegations of political bias in its autocomplete algorithm, Google wrote in a June blog post that it designed its autocomplete algorithm to avoid completing searches for personal names with “offensive or disparaging” words. “We made this change a while ago following feedback that Autocomplete too often predicted offensive, hurtful or inappropriate queries about people. This filter operates according to the same rules no matter who the person is.”
Dr. Epstein doesn’t buy it. “The way their statement is worded is that they eliminate all negatives for everybody, and that is positively not true,” he says. Google did not offer any comment in response and directed readers back to its blog post.
In testimony before Congress in July 2019, Dr. Epstein summarized a wide variety of research he had been conducting since 2013 and concluded that “Google presents a serious threat to democracy and human autonomy.”
The worst part is that most people don’t even know that they’re being influenced. Big Tech has such a monopoly (on everything from internet searches to social media friend suggestions) that we’ve begun to passively trust what we see. And in some cases, that isn’t all bad. This issue, along with a great deal of Dr. Epstein’s research, is summarized in the recent documentary film, ‘The Creepy Line’ (http://thecreepyline.org), which is free for Amazon Prime members to watch.
If you login to Amazon and search for socks, you’ll see a clear label on results that are sponsored, and then be given a choice to sort by user rating, price, shipping time, and more. But Google, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube are different stories.
If you search for “The Truth About Cancer,” you won’t find anything from our site. You will find our content published on other people’s websites, or you will find the Big Pharma hit pieces full of lies and smears against us, but you won’t find www.thetruthaboutcancer.com easily. You may see it once or twice, but we have been purged from Google. If you search for “Judy Mikovits,” or Robert F. Kennedy,” you’ll find many unsubstantiated smear campaigns long before you find content published by the people themselves.
Additionally, social media has been so aggressively flagging and deleting posts and videos that it’s almost impossible to read an article or watch a video – including content about the dangers of vaccines, the absolute lack of safety testing for 5G networks, the lies and corruption behind the chemotherapy, glyphosate, and opioid markets, or the idea that COVID-19 might not be as bad as we’ve been told – without having your post blocked, your account deleted, or sudden a “warning label” linking to industry-funded propaganda.
And that’s what’s happening with voter fraud. Because, despite what Yoel Roth might say, voting fraud is a serious and existential threat to freedom and democracy. (Then again, he also thinks that you and I are Nazis and racists, so maybe he’s not a great source of information.)
Mail-in Ballot Voter Fraud
So, here’s the TRUTH about voter fraud, and the reason why President Trump is 100% right to oppose the expansion of mail-in ballots.
In the 2016 election, it’s estimated that roughly 45,000 votes were actually duplicates, meaning more than one vote was cast under the same person’s name. This number doesn’t account for other invalid votes, such as noncitizens, felons, and mail-in ballot fraud. And mail-in ballots are a big issue.
In 2018, Ohio’s secretary of state discovered that hundreds of illegal ballots that were cast by non-citizens or other people who were not permitted to vote. The year before, Texas’ Secretary of State announced that “a very large number of people who were non-citizens” were somehow registered to vote. And these are just the votes that the government noticed.
In the same year, a candidate in the North Carolina congressional race faced felony charges for tampering with the ballots. More specifically, his campaign operatives collected and submitted absentee ballots (mail-in ballots), which is a HUGE miscarriage of justice, as private and individual voting is the cornerstone of our democratic system. If ballots are collected, submitted, or even SEEN by an outside party, it’s impossible to know if the vote cast was impacted by an outside influence.
But there are greater opportunities for fraud when it comes to mail-in ballots. Just this week, it was discovered that a mail carrier in Virginia had been altering mail-in ballots sent out as part of the State’s COVID-19 response. Virginia’s Secretary of State Mac Warner, despite his extremely left-wing political leaning and his massive support for providing mail-in ballots to every voter, acknowledged that mail-in ballots increase the risk of fraud.
“We want everyone to be tuned into the increased opportunities for fraud,” said Secretary of State Warner. “Voting absentee makes it easy to vote but (it also) increases opportunities for irregularities and fraud to occur. If you see something, say something.”
Even media outlets like the New York Times and Washington Post have confirmed (against their heavy liberal bias) that mail-in ballots lead to more fraud: In 2012, before mail-in voting became a partisan political litmus test, the New York Times published an article titled “Error and Fraud at Issue as Absentee Voting Rises.”
The piece noted that “there is a bipartisan consensus that voting by mail … is more easily abused than other forms,” and that “votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth.” A bipartisan Commission on Federal Election Reform, chaired by former president Jimmy Carter and former secretary of state James A. Baker III, concluded in 2005 that “absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud” and that “vote buying schemes are far more difficult to detect when citizens vote by mail.” Carter and Baker also pointed out that citizens who vote at nursing homes “are more susceptible to pressure, overt and subtle, or to intimidation.” In Florida, there is even a name for this: “granny farming.”
No one questions that mail-in ballots have much higher rates of not being counted. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology study found that in the 2008 presidential election, 7.6 million of 35.5 million mail-in ballots requested were not counted because they never reached voters or were rejected for irregularities. That is a failure rate of more than 21%! In 2008, it did not matter because the election was not particularly close and mail-in ballots only accounted for a fraction of votes cast. But imagine the impact this would have in a close election in which mail-in voting is tried on a massive scale.
If mail-in ballots are adopted widely for the 2020 election, mass failures would be inevitable because about half the states have either no or extremely limited vote-by-mail options, and thus lack the experience or infrastructure for sending out, receiving, or securing millions of mail-in ballots. We’d be conducting an experiment of an unprecedented scale right in the middle of one of the most contentious elections in U.S. history.
Moreover, there is a huge difference between sending ballots to a small number of citizens who request them and requiring that they be mailed to every registered voter, as Democrats are demanding. Under the Democrats’ new plan, ballots would inevitably be sent to wrong addresses or inactive voters, putting millions of blank ballots into circulation — an invitation for fraud. Add to that the danger of what Democrats call “community ballot collection” (a.k.a. “ballot harvesting”) where campaign workers collect absentee ballots in bulk and deliver them to election officials, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Nevertheless, social media and major news outlets are still trying to hide the truth about voter fraud. They’re so determined to hide the truth that they’ve even gone so far as to censor the President of the United States! Our leader is fighting back, and his executive order will undoubtedly rattle the monopoly that these companies have had on information.
But the question needs to be asked: If they’re willing to censor the leader of the free world to protect voter fraud, what other lies are they telling us?
It’s only a conspiracy theory until the truth is exposed… then it’s a conspiracy FACT.
