(1) A brutally honest review of the 2022 midterm election. Image
(2) As the political discussion centers on the 2022 wins and losses from the midterm election, one thing that stands out in similarity to the 2020 general election is the difference between ballots and votes.
(3) Insofar as electioneering is concerned, where votes were the focus, the Biden administration suffered losses.  However, where ballots were the focus, the Biden administration won. Image
(4) Since the advent of ballot centric focus through mail-in and collection drop-off processes, votes have become increasingly less valuable amid the organizers who wish to control election outcomes.
(5) As a direct and specific result, ballot distribution, assembly, collection and return has become the key to Democrat party success.

The effort to attain votes for candidates is less important than the strategy of collecting ballots.
(6) It should be emphasized; these are two distinctly different election systems. Ballots -vs- Votes

The system of ballot distribution and collection is far more susceptible to control than the traditional, now arcane, system of votes physically cast at precincts.
(7) A *vote* cannot be cast by a person who is no longer alive, or no longer lives in the area. However, a *ballot* can be printed, distributed, completed and returned regardless of the status of the initially attributed and/or registered individual.
(8) 'Votes' and 'Ballots' are two distinctly different things.

Votes require people, difficult to manage and costly for electioneering. Ballots require systems, easier to manage and more cost effective.
(9) While ballots and votes originate in two totally different processes, the end result of both “ballots” and “votes,” weighing on the presented election outcome, is identical.
(10) The controversial 2020 election showed the result of making ‘ballots’ the strategy for electoral success.

Under the justification of COVID-19 mitigation, mail-in ballots took center stage. Ballot harvesting was one term for collection process but don't get hung up on it.
(11) Now that ballot collection has been shown to be a much more effective way to maintain political power, Democrats in a general sense are less focused on winning votes and more focused on gathering ballots. Image
(12) When ‘ballot organization’ becomes more important than ‘vote winning,’ you modify electioneering approaches accordingly.

It might sound simplistic, but inside the distinct difference between ballots and votes you will find why refusing debates is a successful strategy.
(13) If you are trying to win votes you could never fathom campaign success by refusing to debate an opponent. However, if your focus is centered around ballot collection, the debate is essentially irrelevant. Image
(14) You can vote at any scale you want, but when ballots are more important than votes – the election will always favor the former.

Michigan and Pennsylvania voters are likely very unhappy today, while Michigan and Pennsylvania ballot providers are smiling.
(15) If Democrats had to win individual ‘votes’ to gain election success, they would be at a disadvantage. It would be unfair.

However, as long as Dems only need to gather ‘ballots’, they have a path to winning elections. The process of electioneering is modified accordingly.
(16) Campaigning, advertising, promoting, debating, hand-shaking, crowd attendance and venues for rallies, along with physically meeting people and convincing them of your worth, are only important if you are trying to win votes. Image
(17) Fortunately for Democrats, modern electioneering does not require these arcane voting efforts. So, in the larger picture of what you see in election outcomes, they have stopped wasting time and doing them.

Who cares about votes, modern elections are the result of ballots. Image
(18) It’s time for those in the voting group to start seeing the difference between elections decided by votes and elections decided by the ballot group.

They are two entirely different election processes.

It really is that simple.

1. Who killed Set Rich?

The CIA and FBI people who needed to retain the Trump-Russia narrative, because they were conducting a massive 2016 illegal spy, surveillance and monitoring operation against candidate Donald Trump.
2. The justification for that brutally illegal activity, all boils down to a need for Russia to interfere in the 2016 election. Without that predicate, all of their illegal activity against Team Trump is naked governmental abuse of power.
3. A scale of illegal conduct that dwarfs Watergate. Image

1. Here's the thing folks. When DeSantis came out of the 5 days in the bunker and immediately went on the national tour 8/13/22 (before the book tour), those schedules are planned long in advance. LOOONG in advance. RdS 2024 was planned much, much earlier than most understand.

OK, Jen Griffin (Fox News) is now pushing the Dagestan story.... Now I know it was an op.

It doesn't make sense that a flight from Tel-Aviv, if it was carrying Russian Jews, would land at that airport. Jews don't live in Dagestan. And how did the radicals know in advance?
”The independent Medizona news website reported that the demonstration was prompted by calls spread on the Telegram messaging app earlier on Sunday to block a plane scheduled to arrive directly from the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.”…
..."Despite portraying itself as a local outlet, the Telegram channel had been exposed by both Russian officials and the Killnet hacker community as a project of Ukrainian intelligence services, set up to stir unrest in Russia."...

1) So, as always suspected, this was from the Mueller team, and approved by DAG Rod Rosenstein?

The purpose of which just affirms the intent of the Mueller installation was always to protect the prior effort, and continue throwing a bag over ongoing illegal activity.
2) While not surprising, it still infuriates me that everyone in congress and DC continues to pretend the originating purpose of Robert Mueller was not to do exactly that. Mueller was the cover-up operation. Image
3) Inside this process they needed to know what was being found out so they could intervene, intercept, control and manipulate any evidence that would expose the wrongdoing of the main characters from DOJ, FBI, IC, WH, and Obama intel apparatus.

1. Quick Thread.

Most people truly do not understand the illusion of choice, the depth of the operation, and how the RNC and DNC work to complement each other on behalf of their identical corporate benefactors. Image
2. The people who plan the outcomes of elections, take great pride in their foresight. The stuff they do is so seemingly disparate, and few people connect the dots leading to a larger understanding of how this process really works.
3. For those who do understand, I mean really understand how U.S. political outcomes are decided by instructions to two private corporations (RNC/DNC), watching it unfold election after election is like being a frustrated insider. Image
