Just think—Mr. Lloyd is one of the few people who might have actually known one of those 130,000 who simultaneously left their eternal rest to cast a ballot for Joe Biden at 0300 on the morning after the legal election day…..

Hey JMC, that reminds me of a guy in Philadelphia. His entire life he voted Republican, then suddenly voted for Biden in this current election. This never would have happened if he were still alive!

Here is the closing remark from that article that is worth repeating, and might be missed if there wasn’t time for the article itself:

“My advice to you is to get your sh—- (original expletive altered) together and stop underestimating the enemy, this is going to be a long fight. There will be no Balkanization, it’s all or nothing in their minds so you better develop the same mindset.”

Civil war is upon us! Do not let the word civil fool you. Not all will stand, some will roll over.

President Trump, minutes ago:
“We should look at the votes. We’re just beginning the tabulation stage. We should look at these allegations. We’re seeing a number of affidavits that there has been voter fraud. We have a history in this country of election problems. In Pennsylvania you had an order by a Supreme Court Justice to compel them to separate ballots that were received after the legislative deadline. It required the intervention of Justice Alito. That’s a large group of ballots. When you talk about systemic problems, it’s about how these ballots were authenticated, because if there’s a problem in the system about authentication, that would seriously affect the ENTIRE ELECTION – And what concerns me is that we had over a hundred million mail-in ballots [nationally] in cites like Philadelphia and Detroit with a long series of election problems (to put it mildly).”

To see more content like this and stay on the cutting edge, go to Gab and follow Matt Bracken, or one of many of the other contributors there who comprise and informal network. Gab is a free speech zone populated by like-minded people. No one gets banned or censored there. If you do not care to hear from a particular gadfly, then you can hit the mute button, and they disappear from your feed.

Even if Trump remains in power, the PTB, the ‘powers that be’, will continue to destroy this country, and they would naturally continue to censor or kick us off the Big Tech platforms. Trump’s power comes from The People. He does not have much control over the levers of government, as that is firmly in the hands of the Deep State. All heck could break loose if Biden loses. We need to continue to build and contribute to alternate internet platforms, and never stop improving our ability to be self-sufficient, and to defend ourselves.

Mathematics is the ” the “queen and servant of the sciences,” ~ the certainty of basic math was set in place by God. … 2 + 2 = 4; Not 3 in our rational world.

The political party constantly harping that it’s the party of science, seems to have created ~gross Mathematical abnormalities in the Presidential Election voter tabulation numbers.

This article on the Internet, ~~Joe Biden’s votes violate Benford’s Law (Mathematics)~~ has an explanation with graphs, given in the article. [Math Wizards can verify.]
In the article:

“As the vote counting for the 2020 Presidential Election continues, various facts suggest rampant frauds in Joe Biden’s votes. So does mathematics in terms of the votes from precincts.”

“Benford’s law or the first-digit law, is used to check if a set of numbers are naturally occurring or manually fabricated. It has been applied to detect the voting frauds in Iranian 2009 election and various other applications including forensic investigations.”

Further information is available at gnews(dot)org, and on the Internet. … If rampant fraud is ratified in our country, it is time to move to the safest place possible. [See redoubt region]

+Many people, that deny the the reality of a God in Heaven, will support an idea that the ‘dead will rise from the grave’ ~ in much-much greater numbers to only vote for one particular political party.
Consistency of Ideas as a test of truthfulness is no longer a part of the ‘science only’ political party.

[Posted previously. This is an attempted theft of the Presidential Election, and a destruction of our Democracy. (Our Republic is a representative democracy.) If the theft succeeds, have plenty of preps and some old old guns.]
