Baseless: The Evidence the Left Doesn’t Want to Hear

BLUF (Bottom Line Upfront)
The left should not use the word “baseless” when talking about claims of election fraud. Here’s a short list of just some of the illegal activity and statistical anomalies that apparently occurred in the 2020 general election. Unless otherwise noted, each claim comes from The Navarro Report.

  • Between 80 and 100 self-proclaimed Black Lives Matter-affiliated members from other states have admitted to having voted in Pennsylvania.
  • 70,000 allegedly ineligible voters cast ballots in Georgia.
  • Over 20,000 people appear to have filed a Notice of Changed Address form to the Georgia state government or had other indications of moving out of state. Yet, these clearly ineligible out-of-state voters appeared to have remained on the voter rolls and voted in the 2020 election.
  • “Bad-faith voters” registering as “indefinitely confined” intentionally broke “Wisconsin election law to circumvent election integrity photo identification requirements.” The number of indefinitely confined voters surged from just under 70,000 voters in 2019 to over 200,000 in 2020. This 130,000 vote increment of new indefinitely confined voters is more than five times the Biden victory margin in Wisconsin.
  • In Georgia, the family of an elderly man in a nursing home facility discovered that a mail-in ballot had been requested and submitted under his voter registration identity, yet it was done without his consent.
  • In a similar situation in Pennsylvania, two parents and their daughter who has Downs Syndrome went to vote in person and discovered that a mail-in ballot had both been requested and submitted for their daughter without her consent.
  • A truck driver has alleged in a sworn affidavit that he picked up large crates of ballots in New York and delivered them to a polling location in Pennsylvania. There may be well over 100,000 ballots involved, enough fake ballots alone to have swung the election to Biden in the Keystone State.
  • In Pennsylvania, there is both a Declaration and a photo that suggests a poll worker used an unsecured USB flash drive to dump an unusually large cache of votes onto vote tabulation machines. The resultant tabulations did not correlate with the mail-in ballots scanned into the machines.
  • Video footage from State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia shows poll workers kicking out observers and then late at night tabulating a quantity of fake manufactured ballots estimated to be in the range of tens of thousands. A large surge in Biden votes following the tabulation of these ballots can be clearly observed after these votes were processed.
  • In the United States District Court for the District of Arizona: Plaintiffs claim that over 75,000 absentee ballots were reported as unreturned when they were actually returned. These absentee ballots were then either lost or destroyed (consistent with allegations of Trump ballot destruction) and/or were replaced with blank ballots filled out by election workers or other third parties.
  • Some native Americans appear to have traded their votes not for pieces of silver but rather for Visa gift cards, jewelry, and other “swag.” According to the Epoch Times, such vote buying schemes also may have occurred in eight other states, including Arizona and Wisconsin.
  • One lawsuit claims that roughly 15,000 mail-in or absentee ballots were received in Nevada from voters who were known to have voted in other states.
  • In Pennsylvania, a statistical analysis matching voter rolls to public obituaries found what appears to be over 8,000 confirmed dead voters successfully casting mail-in ballots.
  • In Georgia, the estimated number of alleged deceased individuals casting votes almost exactly equals the Biden victory margin.
  • Computer operators at a polling location in Detroit were manually adding the names and addresses of thousands of ballots to vote tabulation systems with voters who had birth dates in 1900.
  • In Nevada, a widower since 2017 saw that his deceased wife had successfully cast a mail-in ballot on November 2, 2020, three and a half years after her death.
  • In Wisconsin, people came to nursing homes and filled out ballots for Joe Biden.2
  • There was a 1774% percent increase in registration for 90 year-old-voters in Pennsylvania. 2
  • Joe Biden won less than half the counties that Barrack Obama won.
  • A man went on record stating that he received not only a ballot in Arizona and voted but that his ballot was signature verified. He never received the ballot and moved away from Arizona many years earlier.2
  • In Georgia, it is alleged that over 20,000 absentee or early voters – almost twice the Biden victor margin – cast their ballots after having moved out of state.
  • In Nevada, a poll worker reported that there were as many as 50 ballots per day being delivered to homes vacated by their former residents.
  • In Wisconsin, poll workers were observed running ballots through tabulation machines more than once.
  • In Wayne County, Michigan, Republican poll watchers observed canvassers re-scanning batches of ballots through vote tabulation machines up to 3 to 4 times.
  • In Pennsylvania, a poll worker observed a woman vote twice in the same day by changing her appearance.
  • Another poll worker observed people in voting lines in one corner of a polling location voting, and then coming to another polling location at the other side of the building to vote.
  • Another poll worker witnessed a woman voting twice at voting machines on Election Day.
  • In Michigan, the chairperson of a polling location permitted an individual to vote without presenting voter identification and another with only a photocopy of a driver’s license.
  • In Nevada, poll workers were instructed to advise people who wanted to register to vote and did not have proper Nevada IDs or Driver’s Licenses to do the following: These unregistered voters could go outside into the parking lot and make an appointment with the Department of Motor Vehicles as late as January 2021 to obtain a Nevada Driver’s License as proof of their identity. They could then bring in confirmation of their DMV appointment in either paper or digital form; and that would be sufficient to allow them to be registered.
  • In Georgia, contrary to state law, the Secretary of State entered into a Consent Decree with the Democrat Party that weakened signature matching to just one verification instead of two. This illegal weakening of the signature match test has called into question more than 1.2 million mail-in ballots cast in Georgia.
  • Nevada law requires that persons – not machines – review all signatures and ballots. Yet the Clark County Registrar of Voters used a defective signature matching computer system called Agilis to conduct such checks. Agilis system has an unacceptably low accuracy rate, making it easier for illegal ballots to slip through its screen. According to a court case filed in the First Judicial District Court in Carson City, the Agilis machines used a “lower image quality than suggested by the manufacturer.” Clark County Election Department officials also lowered the accuracy rate below the manufacturer’s recommendations, making the whole verification process unreliable.
  • In Wisconsin, mandatory voter information certifications for mail-in ballots were reduced and/or eliminated contrary to state law. this change “undermined the authority of the state legislature, reduced the security and integrity of the election by making it easier to engage in mail-in ballot fraud and created another standard-less rule in conflict with the clear terms of the Wisconsin Election Code, preventing uniform treatment of absentee ballots throughout the State.”
  • The Secretary of State of Pennsylvania issued guidance that “naked ballots” could be counted. A naked ballot is a mail-in or absentee ballot lacking an outer envelope with the voter’s signature on it. This guidance was illegal, but when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejected this guidance, the Secretary of State refused to issue new guidance directing election officials to NOT count non-compliant mail-in or absentee ballots.
  • In Pennsylvania, ballots were illegally dumped into drop boxes at the Nazareth ballot drop center in violation of state law. Likewise in Pennsylvania, a man caught on videotape and photos came out of an unmarked Jeep extracting ballots from an unsupervised ballot drop-box to bring them into a ballot counting center. That same man was observed to come back with an empty ballot container to place in the unsupervised drop box.
  • In Wisconsin, the state’s Election Committee illegally positioned five hundred drop boxes for collection of absentee ballots across the state. However, these drop boxes were disproportionately located in urban areas which tend to have much higher Democrat registration, thereby favoring the candidacy of Joe Biden. Note: Any use of a drop box in Wisconsin is illegal by statute. Therefore, the votes cast through them cannot be legally counted in any certified election result.
  • Large bins of absentee ballots arrived at the Central Counting Location in Wisconsin with already opened envelopes, meaning that ballots could have been tampered with. They were nonetheless counted.
  • In Wisconsin, an election worker was observed moving bags of blank ballots into a vehicle and then driving off without supervision.
  • An individual who worked as an official photographer for Kamala Harris’ campaign in 201961 was alleged to be involved in scanning ballots in Floyd County, Georgia. Ballot counters cannot have any ties to candidates in a presidential election.
  • In Wisconsin, according to one Declaration, employees of the United States Postal Service (USPS) in Milwaukee were repeatedly instructed by two managers to backdate late arriving ballots so they could still be counted.
  • The USPS was alleged to have backdated as many as 100,000 ballots in Wisconsin.
  • In Detroit, Michigan, as noted in a court case, poll workers were instructing ballot counters to backdate absentee ballots so they could be counted. One poll watcher also observed ballots in Michigan being run through vote tabulation machines without postmarks on them.
  • In Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, poll watchers and observers were denied entry to ballot counting centers by Judges of Elections and other poll workers. This was despite presenting proper certification and identification.
  • In Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, Republican poll watchers were also forced inside confined areas, thereby limiting their view.
  • In Michigan poll workers put up poster boards on the windows of the room where ballots were being processed and counted so as to block the view.
  • In Pennsylvania, tens of thousands of ballots were processed in back rooms where poll observers were prohibited from being able to observe at all.
  • In Georgia, more than 300,000 individuals were permitted to vote who had applied for an absentee ballot more than 180 days prior to the Election Day. This is a clear violation of state law.
  • In both Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, Democrat election officials acted unilaterally to accept both mail-in and absentee ballots after Election Day. In Pennsylvania, absentee and mail-in ballots were accepted up to three days after Election Day.
  • A poll watcher reported on November 7th that, in Delaware County, ballots received the previous night were not being separated from ballots received on Election Day, despite being ordered to by the US Supreme Court.
  • Wisconsin state law does not permit early voting. Nonetheless, city officials in the Democrat stronghold of Madison, Wisconsin assisted in the creation of more than 200 “Democracy in the Park” illegal polling places. These faux polling places were promoted and supported by the Biden campaign. They provided witnesses for absentee ballots and acted in every way like legal polling places. Moreover, they received ballots outside of the limited 14-day period preceding an election that is authorized by statute for in-person or absentee balloting. These were clear violations of state law.
  • In Wisconsin, for example, officials refused to allow poll watchers to challenge the qualifications of people applying to vote or require proof of such persons’ qualifications.
  • In Georgia, more than 2,000 individuals appear to have voted who were not listed in the State’s records as having been registered to vote.
  • In Pennsylvania, a poll watcher observed poll workers taking individuals whose names did not appear in voter registration books back into a separate area that was unobserved by any poll watchers. There, these apparently unregistered voters met with a Judge of Elections who allegedly told them: “you go back in, tell them this is your name, and you can vote.”
  • In Pennsylvania, poll workers were wearing paraphernalia from a group called “Voter Protection.” This is a 100% Democrat-funded Political Action Committee dedicated to Democrat redistricting in Pennsylvania; and the wearing of its paraphernalia constitutes illegal campaigning at the polls.
  • In Michigan, poll workers were allowed to wear Black Lives Matter shirts and were seen carrying tote bags of President Obama paraphernalia. In addition, poll workers with Biden and Obama campaign shirts on were allowed on the ballot counting floor.
  • In Wisconsin, representatives from the Biden campaign were outside with clipboards talking to voters on their way in to vote. They were clearly inside the prohibited perimeter for electioneering. Poll workers did nothing to address this illegal campaigning despite the objections of observers.
  • Democrat-controlled counties in Pennsylvania participated in pre-canvass activities prior to Election Day “by reviewing received mail-in ballots for deficiencies.”90 Such discrepancies included “lacking the inner secrecy envelope or lacking a signature of the elector on the outer declaration envelope.” Voters were then notified so that they could cure their ballots – a clear violation of state law.
  • In Wisconsin, tens of thousands of ballots were observed to be corrected or cured despite election observer objections.
  • In Pennsylvania, poll workers sorted approximately 4,500 ballots with various errors into bins. Poll workers then re-filled out the 4,500 ballots so that they could be read by tabulation machines, an action contrary to state law.
  • In Michigan, poll workers altered the dates on the outer envelopes of the ballots so that they would be able to count them.94 Michigan poll workers also filled out blank ballots to “correct” mail-in and absentee ballots according to what they believed the “voter had intended.
  • There is evidence that election fraudsters targeted voters who had voted in past elections but not voted in more recent ones. These fraudsters could then cast ballots on behalf of these infrequent voters with little likelihood they would be caught. Numerous affidavits, however, detail persons arriving to vote at polls only to be informed that records indicate they had already voted. At least fourteen such affidavits have been made by Georgians.
  • In Wisconsin, mail-in ballots were accepted without witness signatures placed properly in the allocated envelope location. A comparable process for in-person voting would have resulted in the invalidation of the vote.
  • A double standard exists for identification. No ID is required for mail-in voting, which favors Joe Biden by three out of four votes in some states.
  • Across all six battleground states, different standards for correcting mistakes on ballots (ballot curing) were applied across different jurisdictions within the states. Often, jurisdictions with predominantly Democrat registration were more expansive about allowing the curing of ballots than jurisdictions with predominantly Republican registration.
  • When Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar issued illegal guidance authorizing counties to cure ballots, this illegal guidance was not followed in at least eight different Republican counties. Meanwhile, ballots were cured in Democrat counties under this illegal guidance.
  • In Arizona, there was a clear difference between how in-person votes were treated versus mail-in ballots. Mail-in voters had up to 5 days to “cure” or “fix” invalid mail-in ballots sent prior to Election Day. In-person voters in Maricopa County, for example, had to deal with poll workers who did not know how to work electronic voting machines properly. This resulted in thousands of in-person votes being marked incorrectly and disregarded rather than cured.
  • In key Democrat strongholds, e.g., Dane County in Wisconsin and Wayne County in Michigan, which yielded high Biden vote counts, Republican poll watchers and observers were frequently subject to different treatment ranging from denial of entry to polling places to harassment and intimidation.
  • In Georgia, a certified poll watcher witnessed other poll workers at a polling location discussing how they should not speak to her due to her party affiliation.
  • In Pennsylvania, a Republican poll watcher was harassed and removed from the polling location due to his party affiliation. In Wisconsin, a Republican poll watcher was prevented from observing due to the fact that polling locations were not allowing Republicans in.
  • In cases where ballots were too damaged or illegible to be read by vote tabulation machines, Novus was used in an attempt to cure or restore the ballots. The system would do so by trying to read the applicable scans of the original rejected ballots. However, as noted in a court case filed by Kelli Ward, Chairwoman of the Arizona Republican Party: “the software was highly inaccurate, and it often flipped the vote.”
  • The Novus “software would erroneously prefill ‘Biden’ twice as often as it did ‘Trump.’”
  • In Republican stronghold Antrim County, Michigan, the Dominion-Smartmatic voting machine hardware-software combo counted 6,000 votes initially, and incorrectly, for Joe Biden. When a check was done, it was discovered that the 6,000 votes were actually for Donald J. Trump. A subsequent forensic audit of the Antrim County vote tabulation found that the Dominion system had an error rate of 68 percent. The Federal Election Committee requires that election systems must have an error rate no larger than 0.0008 percent.
  • The records that would have allowed the detection of remote internet access went missing from the Antrim County system. This was in direct violation of Michigan state law which requires retention of voting records for 22 months — such information was in place for previous election years, but not this election.
  • In Nevada, the overall rejection rate dropped from 1.6%127 in 2016 to 0.58% in 2020.
  • In Pennsylvania, the 2016 rejection rate of 1.0%129 dropped to virtually nothing at 0.28%.
  • The biggest fall in the overall absentee ballot rejection rate came, however, in Georgia. Its rejection rate fell from 6.8%131 in 2016 to a mere 0.34% in 2020. Georgia election officials received 1,320,154 mail-in and absentee ballots. If these ballots had been rejected at the 2016 rate of 6.8% instead of the 2020 rate of 0.34%, there would have been 81,321 ballots rejected instead of the 4,489 ballots that were actually rejected. Under the conservative assumption that 60% of these mail-in and absentee ballots went to Joe Biden,133 this dramatic fall in the rejection rate provided Joe Biden with an additional 16,264 votes. That’s more than the margin of the alleged Biden victory in Georgia.
  • According to testimony from an MIT-trained mathematician, Candidate Biden may have received a weighted 130% total of Democrat votes in Maricopa County to help him win the state due to an algorithm programmed into the Dominion voting machines used there.
  • In one precinct in the suburb of Queen Creek, Arizona the vote percent for President Trump dropped dramatically relative to 2016, from 67.4 to 58.5 percent. This was attributed to an “unusually high” number of duplicate ballots.
  • In Georgia, for example, an update at 1:34 AM on November 4th showed 136,155 additional ballots
  • cast for Joe Biden, and 29,115 additional votes cast for President Trump.
  • An update in Michigan at 3:50 AM on November 4th showed an update of 54,497 additional votes cast for Joe Biden, and 4,718 votes cast for President Trump.
  • And an update in Wisconsin at 3:42 AM on November 4th showed 143,379 additional ballots cast for Joe Biden, and 25,163 votes cast for President Trump.
  • Election voter count data collected by Edison Research for the state of Washington during the periods of 11/4/2020 @ 8:11PM through 11/24/2020 @ 4:40PM showed that Trump was leading at the start of the vote counts (11/3/2020 @ 8:11PM), but it was quickly lost to Joe Biden on 11/3/2020 @ 8:21PM, when within 2 minutes, Joe Biden received 81.08% of his winning votes until 11/3/2020 @ 8:22PM.4
  • Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a justification, [Democrat] government officials [in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin] usurped their legislatures’ authority and unconstitutionally revised their state’s election statutes. They accomplished these statutory revisions through executive fiat or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity.
  • In Michigan, no less than eight cities showed the entirely impossible turnout of 100% or more — far more — in Democrat-dominated districts. In North Muskegon, more than 700% of registered voters cast ballots. In Zeeland Charter Township, it was more than 400%.5
  • Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai presented data showing that the only way for Joe Biden to have statistically caught up with President Trump in Arizona was if votes came in at 130% for Biden and -30% for Trump.6
  • Dr. Ayyadurai discovered that counting machines don’t directly count ballots. Instead, they take an image of the ballot that is submitted to them, and then they tabulate the votes based on the ballot images collected. Federal election statues dictate that all election records must be held for 22 months.  However, many states do not retain the ballot images produced by the machines. The default settings of the machines automatically store the ballot images, so this means election officials are manually disabling the image storage feature. Because ballot images are not being retained in states like MA and MI, the election results cannot be meaningfully audited, leaving ambiguity as to the actual election outcome.7
  • Data analytics show, at a minimum, 69,000 votes were TRANSFERRED from Trump to Biden in these four counties [Oakland, Macomb, Kent and Wayne counties in Michigan], in a pattern that is consistent with algorithmic weighting of a race.7
  • Dr. Ayyadurai presented data that indicates that the more likely a precinct (in Michigan) was to be Republican, the more likely it is the Republicans in that district voted for Biden over Trump, and they did so at a mathematically perfect rate. The perfection of the slope and distribution can only be explained by a computer algorithm. 7
  • The number of ballots that were either requested by someone other than the registered Republican or requested and returned but not counted range from 89,397 to 98,801 in Pennsylvania. From Steve Miller, Mathematics professor at Williams College in a sworn statement provided to Just the News. Note that Miller has been censored on Twitter.
  • Georgia: We have identified over a thousand early/abs votes cast by individuals whose registered [residential] addresses are in fact at post offices, UPS, and FedEx locations, willfully disguising the box numbers as “Apt,” “Unit,” etc. <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="http://<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Update: <br><br>- Georgia: We have identified over a thousand early/abs votes cast by individuals whose registered addresses are in fact at post offices, UPS, and FedEx locations, wilfully disguising the box numbers as "Apt," "Unit," etc.</p>— Matt Braynard (@MattBraynard) <a href="">November 22, 2020</a></blockquote> <script async src="; charset="utf-8">Tweet from Matt Braynard
  • On Thursday November 5th at 9:09am a large batch of 90,022 mail/absentee votes got added that has over 95% support for Biden, but total votes to go up by only 9,534, implying that in-person votes actually went down by 80,488. 8
  • Four anomalous vote spikes were crucial to Biden’s election in MI, WI, and GA. The four vote dumps in question are all at or above the 99.92th percentile. With these ratios, if they were at the 99th percentile only, they would each be dragged down to the middle of the three lines shown.  Critically, they account for more than the margin of victory in all three states, and thus forty-two electoral votes, and with them, the Presidency.9
  • The number of Biden votes in ten of the outlier counties [in Pennsylvania] was 101%± of registered Democratic voters (vs the majority of other PA counties where it was 70%± — an extraordinary statistical difference). That is not logical or reasonably explainable legally. The most likely explanation is that excess votes were added to the Biden total that did not come from voters. These facts suggest a mathematically extraordinary event occurring in multiple counties simultaneously at a magnitude well above what is needed to change which candidate won Pennsylvania’s electoral votes. 10
  • Biden won only 514 of the 3,141 counties in America. That’s only 16.7% of the counties. He got a record low number of counties but a record high number of votes. 11
  • Our voting machines were compromised and strong evidence points to China, Iran, and Russia interfering in our elections. Patrick Byrne, founder of, billionaire, and Chinese speaker, writes in detail about the likely communist iflitration of Dominion voting machines, Smartmatic and others. 12
  • I personally witnessed two people handing multiple unopened mail in ballot envelopes to two other people who then opened and filled out the ballots against the side of the Biden/Harris van,” said one Nevada affidavit. The name of the affiant, an employee of the Clark County Election Department, was redacted. “The same two people who marked the ballots then put the marked ballots in official pink and white envelopes. These people were not poll workers.” 13
  • Soon, the affiant swore, “there were 5 or 6 additional people who formed a human wall, which moved as I walked by, apparently in an attempt to block my view of the four people who were opening envelopes, marking ballots, and placing those ballots in the pink and white return envelopes.”13
  • “On Tuesday, November 3, 2020 approximately 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.” John C. Palmer III recalled, “I watched 10 or more vehicles with out-of-state license plates drive up to the loading dock areas. I remember seeing Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Virgina [sic] etc.” Palmer was “a volunteer observer” stationed just outside Detroit’s Department of Elections Building.13
  • “I was shocked to see that the ballot machines were controlled by these individuals and not Michigan and/or Detroit residents,” Palmer continued. “Many of these out-of-state people carried boxes with Dominion written on them from their vehicles.”
  • “At approximately 4:03 a.m. a poll worker announced that 50 boxes of ballots were coming in. Election workers loudly cheered this announcement,” Republican challenger Articia Bomer swore. She was stationed at Detroit’s TCF Center, where plenty seemed amiss. Especially in the wee small hours after Election Day — Michigan’s most pivotal tabulation facility resembled a crime scene.13
  • “Large quantities of ballots were delivered to the TCF Center in what appeared to be mail bins with open tops,” poll challenger Daniel Gustafson affirmed. “These ballot bins and containers did not have lids, were not sealed, and did not have the capability of having a metal seal. The ballot bins were not marked or identified in any way to indicate their source of origin.”13
  • “On Wednesday, November 4, 2020, Detroit election officials told us that they were going to process military ballots last,” challenger Robert Cushman observed. “I was surprised to see numerous new boxes of ballots arrive at the TCF Center in the evening. I first noticed these boxes in the distribution area after many of the military ballots had been distributed and processed. I estimate these boxes contained several thousand new ballots when they appeared.” 13
  • Challenger Andrew Sitto swore that he saw this: “At approximately 4:30 a.m., on November 4, 2020, the man in his 50s got on the microphone and stated that another shipment of absentee ballots would be arriving and would have to be counted.” The 50-something was one of “two men in charge of the counting,” Sitto wrote. “I heard other challengers say that several vehicles with out-of-state license plates pulled up to the TCF Center a little before 4:30 a.m. and unloaded boxes of ballots. At approximately 4:30 a.m., tens of thousands of ballots were brought in and placed on eight long tables. Unlike the other ballots, these boxes were brought in from the rear of the room.” Sitto added: “I specifically noticed that every ballot I observed was cast for Joe Biden.”13
  • “At approximately 4:50 a.m. I witnessed a man spraying a chemical on a ballot counting machine. He then placed twenty-seven ballots into the machine and I noticed tape on the top of the ballot where a ballot number normally would be,” Articia Bomer wrote. “Throughout the night I witnessed him insert these same 27 ballots at least five times.”13
