Fulton County Audit Case: Judge’s order looks like a major loss for the defendants

The order drops Fulton County, Fulton Counsty Board of Registration and Elections, and Fulton County Clerk of Superior and Magistrate Courts as defendants in the case. To hear mainstream pseudomedia tell it, this ends any audit and is a win for the election officials.

I disagree.

What the judge did was drop the official goverment entities on the basis of sovereign immunity. I think the judge misread the state constitution, but for once I’m kinda glad.

Plaintiffs argued that an amendment to the constitution allowed suits to go forward without getting the government entity’s permission. The judge says otherwise. Here’s the applicable section:

Sovereign immunity is hereby waived so that a court awarding declaratory relief pursuant to this Paragraph may, only after awarding declaratory relief, enjoin such acts to enforcement its judgement. Such waiver of sovereign immunity under this Paragraph shall apply to past, current, and prospective acts which occur on or after January 1, 2021.

The judge reads that as meaning the he cannot waive immunity for anything occurring before 1/1/2021 — the November 2020 election. But I read it differently. That is a comma-delineated list of acts: Such waiver of sovereign immunity under this Paragraph shall apply to past COMMA current COMMA and prospective acts which occur on or after January 1, 2021. It breaks down so:

  • past acts (the election)
  • current acts (things still occurring)
  • future acts (things occurring on or after 1/1/20211, which was the future when the amendment was drafted)

So I think the judge was incorrect. But his order adds new defendants: the people involved in the apparent… mismanagement of the election as individuals. The county is no longer party to the suit.

Bye-bye.

Hello Alex Wan, Mark Wingate, Kathleen Ruth, Vernetta Nuriddin, and Aaron Johnson; private individuals.

As I see it, those individuals are now responsible for their own legal expenses, which are probably going to be rather large. Up till now, the county had been footing the defense bill. That had better end now.

Sure, the county can keep paying its own lawyers to do amicus briefs, but the individual defendants will have to hire independent attorneys. Generally, attorneys working for parties can’t make amicus filings; they have to be independent.

And while ABC and the like thinks this ends any chance of an audit, the judge made no such order. He is continuing the case. It remains to be seen if he’ll allow an audit to go forward.

The order also makes no mention of the county — then a party — violating his order to maintain 24/7 security. Or the state unsealing ballots he ordered sealed. I’m looking forward to that. Are there bench warrants in someone’s future?

Would somebody arrest that bastard Raffensperger already?

Apparently Georgia Secretary of Scum Raffensperger sent his people to rifle through some Fulton COunty ballots. Illegally.


Georgia Conducting Secret 2020 Ballot Review — Keeping Plaintiffs in the Dark
After several Fulton County, Ga., poll monitors testified last year that boxes of mail-in ballots for Joe Biden looked liked they’d been run through a photocopy machine, state investigators quietly broke the seal on one suspicious box and inspected the hundreds of votes it contained for signs of fraud, RealClearInvestigations has learned exclusively.
[…]
State officials also neglected to inform the judge hearing the lawsuit that they were conducting such an inspection, even though the judge had issued a protective order over the ballots in January.
[…]
“If the secretary of state’s office did that, they tampered with the ballots and violated Georgia state law,” which restricts the handling of ballots to authorized elections officials involved in the tabulation and care of the ballots, Favorito said. He also noted that Judge Amero had placed the ballots under a protective order in January. “They would have had to ask for a court order to unseal and inspect those ballots and they never did that.”


We can start with contempt of court for violating the judge’s order sealing the ballots, while we sort out all the election laws he seems to have broken.

The only thing we want overturned is the corrupt system.

I’m not sure if Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs is missing the point, or hoping we do.


Arizona’s Katie Hobbs Suffers COMPLETE Meltdown – Far Left Hack Knows What’s Coming (VIDEO)
Katie Hobbs: “I am concerned about what happens when this report comes out because we know, number 1, the election that we certified – those certified results – are an accurate reflection of the will of the voters in Arizona and number 2, there’s nothing that can be done now to overturn the election even if this audit was valid.”
Let that sink in.


I’ll begin by noting that she seems to be assuming the Maricopa audit is going to show big problems. Duh; I wonder why?

Except for some conspiracy theorists, who don’t follow the law and judicial process, we don’t expect the election to be overturned. The Supreme Court has already declined challenges, calling it moot since the results were “certified.”

What we want, assuming audits show what I very strongly suspect, is for people to get angry enough to force changes in law — and personnel — to prevent this ever happening again.

And if people are sufficiently angry to start decorating light posts in certain counties…

I won’t cry over it, but I do discourage it. It’s too quick. I’d much rather seeing the people responsible for fraud and plain stupid mismanagement experiencing the joys of decades of miserable prison life. Don’t let them off easy.

Don’t let them throw just a few low level folks under the bus either. Look at scumbags like Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger, who signed a consent decree agreeing to break state election laws on ballot harvesting, signature validation, and more. Remember that he approved disproportionate placement of ballot harvest boxes to favor one political party over another. That his own rep had informed him in writing of massive problems personally witnessed in Fulton County, yet claimed there were no problems and certified the election. Recall that Raffensperger lied about his call with Trump, and stupidly failed in his attempt to delete the evidence of his lie.

Remember that in violation of state law and the state constitution, Raffensperger allowed people to register after the general election and vote in the Senate run-offs.

Don’t forget Georgia Governor Kemp either. For a guy who was reluctantly supportive of audits when enough people screamed for them, he’s been strangely silent on it since the odd car crash that nearly killed his daughter.

And did anyone ever figure out where the unaccounted Zuckerbucks went?

Knob Creek Packing It In

Dang: This Year is The End of Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot

Darn it. Now what is ABC going to mistake for a large-scale military attack?

I would like Swalwell, Biden, O’Rourke, and Harris to note that what US gun owners consider play time is what a major news outlet can mistake for a major military offensive by the Forces of a NATO nation. Tell us again how resisting a tyrannical government is futile.

The big news here is…

There’s ammunition avaible in North Bend, Oregon!


Fugitive in Oregon triple killing turns himself into custody
A weekend-long manhunt for a suspect wanted in the deaths of three people in North Bend, Oregon, ended Sunday when the suspect turned himself in to police in Wisconsin, investigators said.
[…]
He allegedly killed his father Charles Simms Nicholson, 83, at the RV Park of The Mill Casino, then stole his father’s truck and used it to run over Florida couple Anthony and Linda Oyster, 74 and 73 respectively, the police said.
[…]
Nicholson allegedly drove to the Herbal Choices Marijuana Dispensary and shot and killed resident Jennifer L. Davidson, 47, according to investigators.

Nicholson was caught on surveillance cameras at a sporting goods store picking up ammunition following the incidents and police later found the truck crashed and set on fire.

If you get a security warning about my website, there’s a mostly bogus reason.

A few readers have contacted me over the past few months with concerns about “certificate” security warnings on my site. I think this one is typical (and I think most of those contacting me are using G***** Chrome).

You get that warning because I don’t have a certificate for HTTPS. And Chrome simply assumes anyone who doesn’t have a certificate is a criminal.

I don’t have a certificate because it costs money; money that I don’t have. I use a free web hosting services. Getting a certificate means switching to one their paid plans, then springing for the cert. If people would prefer not seeing that cert warning, please chip in for hosting and certificate expenses. (That does not apply to the handful of generous people who have been helping with my monthly Internet bill.)

While some bloggers seem to rake in donations by pontificating upon the woes and angst of their daily lives, I generally don’t do that; for a few reasons.

1. While aspects of my life are probably a little unusual compared to the average American, I never figured they were particularly interesting.

2. I like some semblance of my shreds of remaining privacy. If I litter the Internet with personal details, it’s gone.

3. While I am not interesting, I think I can share interesting or useful data and analysis. So that’s what I generally do.

There are reasons, based on principled choices I made, that I’m generally skating on the edge of broke. My choices; so I have no reason to whine about it, and you don’t want to hear me whine anyway.

On the other hand, I people want to hit the tip jar to hear so they can hear about walking away from decades in telecom, or publishers with odd ideas on payment, why I thought supporting an RKBA group was really important, and all the rest… Well, it does seem to work for a couple of bloggers I know. If massive sums start appearing in my PayPal account, I guess I could start.

Interesting tidbit of info from Borepatch

It’s hearsay, but consistent with what I feared from mRNA pseudovaccines.


One of the guests she was talking to is a doctor at a big Pennsylvania hospital. He said that there are 40 babies in the NICU, and the prognosis for all of them is poor. The common thread was that their mothers all got vaccinated. He says that the Press won’t touch this story but he hears from doctor buddies elsewhere that they see this too.


So we’re hearing that the spike proteins cause issues with platelets and insulin-producing cells. Now we may have this.

Has anyone else heard about neo-nate issues post-jab?

If you haven’t seen the ‘Just The News’ Fulton County Analysis, you need to.

Just The News got documents from Georgia Secretary of Scum Raffensperger’s office. They’re from the November 2020 “risk limiting audit,” so this is what he knew when he was telling everyone the election was perfectly fine, no problems, nothing to see here.

  • More than 100 batches of absentee ballots — each containing approximately 100 or more ballots — were assigned tracking numbers before being sent to one of the five absentee vote-counting machines in Fulton County but are not subsequently recorded in the handwritten logs showing which batches were scanned and counted, raising concerns the ballots may be missing.
  • More than two dozen batches of absentee ballots were identified as having been double-scanned on the tally sheets.
  • Five sequential batches of absentee votes each appeared with the exact same vote count of 392 for Biden, 96 for President Donald Trump, and 3 for Libertarian Jo Jorgensen, a count that state officials admitted was a statistical impossibility.

They found other serious problems, but these three by themselves — without even looking at the ballots themselves — tell me that I can have zero confidence in Fulton County’s reported election results. In an election decided by less than 12,000 votes, Fulton County alone had serious problems with at least 12,900.

Ten thousand+ that may have never been counted at all.

2,400 double counted, generating an extra 1,200 votes (that alone is over 10% of the winning margin).

One batch that appears to have been scanned five times, resulting in another 400 bogus votes.

Whether it was deliberate fraud or massive incompetence, those three issues just by themselves should have prevented the certification of the election. And if Raffensperger had a whiff of honesty, they should have triggered a criminal investigation last year.

Since it didn’t, Raffensperger needs to be removed from office and criminally investigated.

No. We don’t, you senile totalitarian.

Gropin’ Joe spoke to the Swiss yesterday.


Joe Biden: You heard me say this before, again and again. I’m going to keep saying it. What’s that idea. We don’t derive our rights from the government. We possess them because we’re born. Period. And we yield them to a government.


Allow me to refer you to the Ninth and Tenth amendments to the Constitution. Get somebody to help you with the big words.

We delegated some powers to government. Some. We never willingly yielded our rights. Dim-ocrats — and far too many Republicans — have trouble grasping that.
