Michigan: Post-election, Allied Security Operations Group, Russell Ramsland performs forensic review of Antrim County results, ‘concludes that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results.‘ Errors constitute 68% of the total, requiring bulk adjudication by election workers secretly filling in ballot choices with no supervision and no audit trail. Voter adjudication logs, which were available for prior elections, are missing in the 2020 election, evidently removed manually to complicate detection of fraud. • 16 cities and towns, including Detroit, report voter turnout of 100% or more. Top turnout reported by Michigan is North Muskegon, with 781.91% of registered voters voting. • Affidavit of computer forensics examiner Ramsland states: 3,276 precincts in Michigan where Presidential Votes Cast were 84% to 350% of Estimated Voters based on census data. There were 431,954 excess ballots. ‘In the data are four spikes totaling 384,733 ballots allegedly processed in a combined interval of only two hours and 38 minutes. This is physically impossible given the available equipment at the four referenced locations.‘ • Kayleigh McEnany cites 234 pages of sworn affidavits of Wayne County eyewitnesses who saw: a batch of ballots, 60 percent of which had the same signature, a batch of ballots scanned five times, provisional ballots (those that were not supposed to be counted yet until verified that they were legal) put in a tabulation box, poll watchers physically pushed away from counting tables by election officials, election officials covering windows so challengers were unable to observe counting.
Pennsylvania: Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt rules on Nov 12 that ballots received after 8:00 pm on Election Day may not be counted, in accordance with Pennsylvania law; and that instructions from the Secretary of State to extend the deadline for three days ‘lack statutory authority’. However, because Pennsylvania election officials do not in fact separate late ballots from on-time ballots, they are all counted in defiance of the court’s order.

Pennsylvania: Testimony of Rudy Giuliani to Pennsylvania Legislature Nov 26, 2020: ‘We have calculated, and the evidence will show, that 682,770 mail-in ballots were entered into your [Pennsylvania] votes, that were not observed by any single Republican…. We could ask, and you could subpoena, all of the outer envelopes. Under the law of your State, which is set by you [legislators], those ballots are illegal. You sent out in the State — the Commonwealth — of Pennsylvania, 1.8 million absentee ballots. You received back 1.4 million. However, in the count for President, you counted 2.5 million [mail-in ballots]. I don’t know what accounts for that difference in the number of ballots you sent out, and the number of ballots that ended up in the count. That number, 2.5 million, was on your Government website until yesterday. I can’t imagine you could possibly certify without knowing the explanation of that; as well as the explanation to the 22,686 mail-in ballots that were returned on the day they were mailed. How about 32,591 that were returned the day after they were mailed? Another 20,000 were returned BEFORE they were mailed. This is kind of a low count. I guess the crooks in Philadelphia are disappointed in this. They only submitted 8,021 mail-in ballots from dead people.‘ || Source

It was broken for the mail in ballots, the drop box ballots, the election day USB card flash drives, in all cases they didn’t follow any of the procedures defined by the Board of Delaware County of Elections.
