Humans looked at every ballot. Biden won by 12,284.

Georgia Manual Recount Confirms Biden Victory

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports Georgia manual recount Confirms Biden Victory

The recount found that Biden received 12,284 more votes than President Donald Trump.Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger plans to certify the election by Friday, a deadline set by state law to finalize results.

Trump gained ground in the manual recount, picking up about 500 votes compared to unofficial estimates of the machine count by the secretary of state’s office.

“Georgia’s historic first statewide audit reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results,” said Raffensperger, a Republican. “This is a credit to the hard work of our county and local elections officials who moved quickly to undertake and complete such a momentous task in a short period of time.”

The recount reviewed every ballot by hand, with humans reading the printed text or ovals on each ballot across Georgia’s 159 counties.

Trump's Claim

Excellent News

Recounts

I was in favor of this recount and I am in favor of a recount in Wisconsin as well. 

It is extremely unlikely results will change. If they do, so be it. 

Trump Cult Disease

Trump needs not one state to change, but four of them, and it isn't going to happen. 

Nor will the Supreme Court save the day for Trump.

Anyone who really believes so has a severe case of TCD.

Dear Mish, it's time to move on from your Trump obsession. Just chill out and spend some time blasting the fed or spend the time with your family.

How is this possible when the US Army seized Spanish servers in Germany?
And, Rudy's hair dye runs down his cheeks?
And Hugo Chávez came back from the dead (unlike Generalissimo Francisco Franco) to screw with our voting?

Who knew Hugo Chavez was a hacking genius.

Recounts wll not be changing any results. Lawsuits are winding down and they will fail too. Trump is getting more desperate. We can guess why? He hates failure, He fears litigation and legal exposure etc. Seems he's now attempting to convince legislators to circumvent the will of the people This should fail too but the Republican heads of Michigan's legislature have agreed to meet with Trump.

The entire "Chavez connection"

....This week, Powell finally made an offering and it quickly sunk to the bottom of the sea. On Tuesday, allied attorney Lin Wood released “the kraken” — a heavily redacted affidavit from an anonymous former Venezuelan military official who saw Chavez many years ago playing around with a supposedly rigged Smartmatic machine.

“It is a stunning, detailed affidavit because he was with Hugo Chavez while he was being briefed on how it worked. He was with Hugo Chavez when he saw it operated. He made sure the election came out his way,” Powell said on Thursday.

Powell also claimed that Soros controlled the voting machines, because the former chairman of Datamatic is also on the board of a Soros foundation — a striking echo of a claim that appeared in The Daily Caller ahead of the 2016 election.

Even if you buy these vague claims, however, Venezuela is a different country from the United States. And Smartmatic and Dominion are different companies.

To bridge these gaps, Powell has focused on the fact that Dominion bought a company called Sequoia Voting Systems from Smartmatic in 2010. The implication is that, somehow, Smartmatic installed its Hugo Chavez code in Sequoia machines, which then went on to infect Dominion’s owner systems with this crazed election-stealing ten years later.

Intriguingly, Powell has turned these claims into an attack on American elections more broadly. She’s declared that any Republican who lost by less than six percent of the vote shouldn’t concede, with the implication that they were probably conned by voter fraud machines. At the Thursday press conference, Powell said that “Republican or Democrats candidates” may have given Dominion and Smartmatic money to “have the system rigged to work for them.”

Does this strike you as outlandish? Of course it does. On Thursday night, Tucker Carlson himself expressed utter bafflement with it all and portrayed Powell as a swindler.

“So we invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week, actually,” he said. “But she never sent any evidence, despite a lot of requests, polite requests. Not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her."....

The problem with being a Trumpista is that you are required to believe stupider and stupider things.

Trump outperformed expectations by an incredible 5 points and still claims fraud. If anything, democrat votes were suppressed by the threat of violence from trumps armed white supremacists supporters.

Good news:

Biden said said under no circumstances will we have a lockdown. In August he proposed a 4 to 6 week lockdown.


In comments made Thursday, President-elect Joe Biden declared, "There will be no national shutdown" during his administration's response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

His statement reiterated comments he made last Friday contradicting a suggestion from a member of his coronavirus advisory board of a four- to six-week national shutdown.

Though Biden said in August that he would do "everything possible to get COVID-19 under control" including shutting the country down, in September, he began opposing the idea.

This is just batshit. The recounts didn't concern me because I knew they wouldn't change the results. The court challenges didn't bother me either. It's Trump's right to bring them even if baseless and as expected Trump is losing all of them. But calling up state legislators and election officials asking them not to certify results or over-ride their states popular vote smacks of election fraud.

So it appears Trump will try to talk these Republicans in Michigan into blocking the election certification. If that happens Biden will have to go to court to contest it, but it’s unlikely the courts would let it stand, even if it were to happen. I understand legal precedent exists to protect the certification in such a case.

As more time passes, it just looks to me like Trump, the constant campaigner....is just planning to keep campaigning...and his bogus questioning of the election is just his new talking point to keep the dumb money flowing into his coffers.

The best thing that could happen today is for Lee Chatfield and Mike Shirkey, representing the Michigan legislature, to tell Trump to piss off....but who knows.

Trump had a chance to win this even with COVID. All he had to do was lead our country through the storm. He chose to complain and he is still complaining...

Slow day so came back. You are still at it eh Mish? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YultIz0Q-E Yes Trump is a bloviating used car salesman. but he's the only one crazy enough to step in the mix and go toe-to-toe. 2 years of russiagate which was a complete fraud, an absolutely insane impeachment, MSM coordination, big tech censorship, and guys like you that want to beat him like a red-headed stepchild. Looking through all the BS we got no wars, lower taxes, big FU to the thought police and he did as well as anyone with Covid (you guys are completely delusional thinking a different admin would lower the death total). Real death toll from lock-down will be mind-boggling when its tallied years from now. Yes - Trump LOST. I am by no means a Trump guy but most R/D are bottom of the barrel scum bags with ill intent. Now you get your 78 year old demented pay-to-play puppet and his unmoored VP who got 2% of the primary vote. Congrats. Now go F yourself - just another useful idiot libertarian.

Mish, I have to say that I am impressed at your glee for Trump losing in Georgia and how you project that the circumstances are the same in other states. I don't know all the details of Georgia's "secure" ballot marking system so it may very well be accurate. But I find it bizarre that you think that it is the same with states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevado and Wisconsin. All one has to do is look at the fact that Trump won 73 million votes which had outstripped every other candidate than Joe Biden. And given the utter lack of enthusiam for Biden, his health problems, the profound levels of corruption and compromising material of the Biden family, the media suppression of all that material on Joe Biden, the mountains of evidence being gathered on Dominion voting machines and by cross referencing birth, death and voting databases the millions of questionable votes in all of those states one has to wonder whether your dislike for Trump has clouded your judgement as to what is actually going on. In that context, does anyone seriously believe that Biden was able to muster up enthusiasm in a record number of Americans to come out and vote for him on election day!?! All lies filter down to the truth. I know that living in or around Chicago you maybe used to this thing. But I have the very strong feeling that you are going to be confronted with a major shock. Whether it is in time to flip the election is another matter entirely.

SORRY FOLKS MISHA IS A LIAR NOT SURPRISED

But in a Friday evening news conference, he said he is not happy about it.

  • Advertisement -

“It’s quite honestly hard to believe that during the audit, that thousands of uncounted ballots were found in a razor-thin outcome in a presidential election. This is simply unacceptable.”

He notes that the recount only looked at the actual ballots, not the signatures on the envelopes.

The Governor is calling for the Secretary of State to review the signatures to make sure they match.

This country needs a voting machine procedure where the voter fills out a paper ballot, not a voting machine that makes out a paper ballot from what the voter puts into a touchscreen.
