    The Arizona Senate will receive the audit report on the Maricopa County election on Sept. 24 at 1 p.m. in a public presentation on the floor of the chamber, Senate President Karen Fann said.

    Her announcement was sent to fellow senators after a judge on Thursday pressed a Senate attorney to tell him when the "final" report would be available.

    Fann, R-Prescott, said the long-awaited audit will cover all three aspects of the examination of the county's election results:

    • A hand count of the 2020 results for president and U.S. Senate, done by the Senate's contractor, the Cyber Ninjas;
    • A machine count of the ballots Fann ordered in July to check against the Ninjas' count, as she said at the time the Ninja count does not match the official results; and
    • A review of mail-in ballot envelopes for missing or illegible signatures.

    A Senate demand for the county's routers and passwords used to access the Dominion voting machines is still outstanding and the county faces a Sept. 27 deadline to hand them over or face financial penalties.

    If the Senate does receive those materials, the Ninjas can go back and amend their report, Fann said. There would be no extra cost to the state, since that review is part of the Ninjas' contract with the Senate, she added.

    The fact that the report will finally be released next Friday does not mean that it is the end of the story.

    Here's two recent developments:

    1) The Senate and Maricopa county worked out an agreement that the country will NOT have to turn over it's routers, but will answer questions about the routers using a "special master".

    2) The country will no longer require the Senate to repay the cost ($2.8 million) to replace the voting machines - even though the senate had agreed in March to pay for any expenses related to damage to the machines

    3) A group that actually knows what they are doing has offered to check the Ninja's work once the report has been released. On Thursday, the trio, who call themselves "the Audit Guys," renewed their challenge.

    Using a method they had developed by obtaining the county's "cast vote" record through a public records request, they released the number of ballots contained in each of 24 boxes of returns without touching a single ballot.

    After months of delays and blistering criticism, a review of the 2020 election in Arizona’s largest county, ordered up and financed by Republicans, has failed to produce any evidence that former president Donald Trump was cheated of victory, according to a draft version of the report.

    In fact, the draft report from the company Cyber Ninjas found just the opposite: It tallied 99 additional votes for President Biden and 261 fewer votes for Trump in Maricopa County, the fast-growing region that includes Phoenix.

    Sadly, that did not stop the craziness.

    In Pennsylvania, the Republicans in state legislature have demanded voters names, addresses, driver license numbers, and last 4 numbers of their Social Security number.

    The state attorney general told them NO - and sued them.

    Then there's Texas:

    Immediately, the office of the Texas secretary of state announced that it has started to conduct a “full forensic audit” of the 2020 election in four Texas counties: Collin, Dallas, Harris, and Tarrant. This is interesting timing, especially since there has been no accusation about fraud in that election in those counties. Indeed, Trump loyalist Greg Abbott, Texas’s governor, has called the election in his state “smooth and secure.” But, earlier today, Trump had demanded in a public letter that Abbott must conduct an “audit” of the election because of “fraud” in the count, which Trump won.

    The former president cannot permit the Big Lie to die, especially as the investigation into it heats up. And so Texas is obliging him, not because there is doubt about the election, but because he needs to keep his supporters convinced that our elections are fraudulent. That conviction will come in handy in 2022, but I wonder if the former president isn’t stoking it for a more immediate reason.

    Trump World's reaction to the cyber ninja report that 261 more vote were found in favor of Joe Biden:

    "Where did those extra 261 votes suddenly come from and not 1 extra Trump vote found, not one? What will the vote count be next month, maybe 1000s more? It just shows how deep the fraud goes, they keep adding more and more Biden votes all the time. By the next election, Biden will have already enough votes to win before 2024 voting begins; they are creating fake Biden votes every day so that there will be millions and milllions of fake Biden votes before the polls open."

    A congressional panel on Thursday portrayed the partisan review of Maricopa County's 2020 election results as the latest in a wave of moves that feed on conspiracy theories to undermine Americans' confidence in elections.

    "The facts about this audit are so damning," said U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, the chairwoman of the U.S. House Oversight and Reform Committee. "This audit was designed to find fraud, but it didn’t find fraud.”

    Maloney, D-N.Y., lamented that Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan declined the committee's invitation to testify and speculated it was because he did not want to do so under oath. The Cyber Ninjas were hired by Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, R-Prescott, to conduct the audit.

    "Tens of millions of Americans, sincerely disappointed that their candidate lost, have been targeted in a scam to keep them angry, divided, and donating," said David Becker, executive director and founder of the Center for Election Innovation & Research.

    Becker, as well as U.S. Rep. Greg Stanton, D-Ariz., ticked off a string of Logan's statements made months before he was hired by the Arizona Senate, showing his belief in conspiracy theories and his belief with former President Donald Trump's assertion, unproven, that the election was stolen.

    U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said she's heard enough.

    “These are democracy corrosion exercises, nothing more, " she said


    The Republicans in Wisconsin tried to do an audit there, but an official in Dane County killed the plan.

    Recently, Greg Abbott said that he was open to an audit in Texas, even though Trump won the state.

    You just can't fix stupid.

    The Parody Project just added some music to the story of the audit:

  • Are you sure you want to delete this post?

    Casey Stengel once said, "it ain't over 'till it's over.

    We all breathed a sigh of relief than the Cyber Ninjas farce finally ended - and gave more Votes to Joe Biden than he was originally given credit for.

    Naturally, you would assume that would be the end of things.


    Attorney General Mark Brnovich just announced that his office is investigating the 2020 election after the findings of the state Senate’s partisan ballot review and months of pressure from former President Donald Trump to take action.

    On Nov. 11, 2020, Brnovich debunked allegations of fraud in Arizona’s election in an appearance on Fox Business.

    “The lackluster Attorney General of Arizona, Mark Brnovich, has to get on the ball and catch up with the great Republican patriots in the Arizona State Senate,” Trump said in a May statement.

    “Brnovich must put himself in gear, or no Arizona Republican will vote for him in the upcoming elections,” Trump continued.

    In July, Brnovich went on Fox News to fire back at Biden, who had described Republican bills across the country that made voting harder as the “most significant test of democracy since the Civil War.”

    The key phrase in the gray box above are the words that are highlighted in bold. Brnovich is a candidate for the Senate seat currently held by Mark Kelly.

    Cyber Ninjas just released a financial statement claiming that it lost over $2 million on its "audit".

    A quick review of the expenses claimed show that some are very dubious, so it's doubtful that they really lost any money at all.

  • Are you sure you want to delete this post?
    Arizona, who cares? Half of the government "money" is never accounted for anyway. Ask the "army". How much was lost in Afghanistan? The book keeping did not even know what was left behind or got "lost". So the Arizona "book keeping" is done the same way I guess. But yeah the way things are going about "elections", then how many "recounts" will we see in the future? Let alone how "corrupt" they will be and who's" money is being spent? . The "rich" got much "richer" during the pandemic and throw their money around; guess to which "party". Sorry this has become an "dictatorship by the "crooks" and the "rich". Just about the "model" as they have in Russia, but with "different names" only.

    There's a lot of people to blame for this fiasco, and the Arizona Republic printed the list this morning:

  • Are you sure you want to delete this post?

    The 2020 election took place more than a year ago - but Trump isn't giving up yet.

    Former President Donald Trump renewed his pressure campaign on Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, asking in a statement Tuesday what happened to the “Rigged and Stolen Arizona Presidential Election that is being investigated.”

    In his statement, Trump baselessly claims 35,000 fictitious votes in Pima County and calls on the state Legislature to decertify the 2020 election results.

    The statement, issued through his Save America political action committee, didn’t attack Brnovich. But it makes clear that the investigation opened by Brnovich’s office hasn’t satisfied Trump, a man whose influence in Republican circles still could impact politics here.

    Brnovich is seeking the GOP nomination in next year’s U.S. Senate race. Trump’s endorsement in that crowded primary could help determine who gets to challenge Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz.

    It is just an continuation of the "same" old shit as 100's of your mails show. The "Trump" dynasty aftermath will continue for a while and may be beyond 2024. The "corruption" here "blooms" just like the "weed" in my yard. So keep on writing, because the "shit" in this country will go on forever until something in the "brains" here is fixed.

    All the shootings and killings and "weird things" here show an country in despair and lost its "normal society" way.

    It is an "mentality" problem instigated by the huge mistake to "elect" an Trump type. The only "remedy" is "educate" the people here about how and why things go "bonkers", which is not done, but instead are "indoctrinated day and night by the "wrong" media, due to an Congress who refuses to put "limits" on what the "media can spew.
