Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told CBS News on Thursday that former Vice President Joe Biden was now getting the same classified intelligence briefings that President Donald Trump receives.
AWOL US Attorney General Bill Barr told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the he had not seen evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the outcome of the 2020 election.
Barr claimed that the FBI has followed up on specific complaints of voter fraud yet they have uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome.
The Trump campaign responded to the AWOL AG on his ridiculous statement.
So we got your fraud, Bill Barr.
As reported earlier by Cristina Laila Georgia Senate Oversight Committee held a hearing on Thursday on the massive election fraud in the state.
President Trump was ahead of Joe Biden by more than 110,000 votes in Georgia on election night when all of a sudden Fulton County stopped counting ballots after a pipe burst.
Poll watchers were kicked out of the State Farm Arena tabulation center on election night after a burst pipe caused flooding.
We now know that a pipe never burst. It was all a lie in order to kick out poll watchers while a few crooks stayed behind to count illegal ballots for Joe Biden.
Trump’s legal team showed a video from the State Farm Arena tabulation center when poll workers were told to leave at 10:25 PM.
A few “workers” stayed behind and were seen pulling suitcases full of ballots out from under tables to be tabulated!
They were caught cheating!

So we got your fraud, Bill Barr!
How about a few arrests!
Prove to us the DOJ is NOT a branch of the DNC!
Restaurant owners have been urging defiance of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s shutdown orders. Citizens in Michigan have been bristling under a “mask mandate” even though the Michigan Supreme Court has repeatedly struck down Whitmer’s orders.
These orders from the Governor are not laws, however, and they are based on the broadest interpretation possible of her powers under state law for emergencies. Eight months into that emergency, the Governor still claims immediacy requires her to ignore the legislature and the judiciary, in order to prevent the crisis she sees with the data only she has. Some are arguing that this situation is not a ‘shutdown’ or a ‘mandate’ or ‘orders’ but, rather, the imposition of Martial Law.
Unemployment spiked due to the shutdown but it recently declining, and people are once again leaving the Wolverine State in search of job opportunities and just the chance to dine in. One resident of Lansing who wished not to be named due to his employment situation, said that he cannot find any venues to date or meet up with anyone, since all dine-in options have been closed at the dictate of Governor Whitmer. “I drive several hours down to Toledo (Ohio) in order to have a beer and a burger and a dose of sanity, even though they have a 10pm curfew.”
The legislature has sued in order to overturn the Whitmer shutdown orders, and succeeded, only to have Whitmer initially ignore the court order, and then say that she was shifting her authority for it to the health code, a change in legal authority but not in application, with still no reprimand from the court.
The neverending pandemic, justified by data that is closely held and not revealed, suspending much of the open records act to prevent public review, the Executive Branch of the Michigan government has operated like an occupying military force and, some say, the more proper terminology to define what is happening is Martial Law in lieu of the current phrasing “Mandatory Shutdowns.”
The traditional definition of “Martial Law” involves the military as an occupying force and as the people in charge. Others suggest, though, that the occupying power is merely whatever one is suspending the lawful rights of citizens, and that in this case it can be the Governor who enacts martial law, or this version of martial law which has a more appealing name to the public.
The government has been notorious for the use of euphemisms to hide the application of its power. The term “collateral damage” is often used to verbally hide the reality of innocents being killed from a military action. The federal government has been especially adept at hiding its abuses with language.
The politicization of language often involves describing things in the most persuasive way possible, instead of accurately depicting the underlying issue. On the left, “Hate speech” is used as a cover for left-wing censorship. On the right, “Family values” is often used to describe a social conservative political agenda. There are long-running debates about whether abortion policy should be described as pro-life/anti-abortion versus pro-choice/pro-abortion and many other similar positional framings.
The mainstream media, however, is perfectly content to only describe shutdowns as what the government calls them, and not describing what they are: the suspension of most fundamental rights of Americans. The shutdowns in Michigan have involved the suspension of the freedom of assembly, the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, the freedom of movement. These suspensions are being challenged in court, even by Churches and religious private schools unwilling to accept a masking requirement, but rarely reported on. And when covered, they are reported as an issue of health, not of rights, and of weighing rights against the numbers provided by the imposing occupying force.
Could the Governor suspend the courts if another decision did not go their way? All indications say yes. Could the Governor shoot dissidents in the streets for defying mandates? Nothing indicates she cannot. Whether she would is different than whether she could, given the assumption of total authority by one person who refuses to abide by, and instead works around, state Supreme Court decisions.
Notably Whitmer acted, prior to the COVID crisis, to work around and ignore the legislature, which she once served in, when crafting state budgets. When the Republican-led legislature passed a budget her first year that she did not like, she simply rewrote it the next day using powers she arguably lacked. The suspension of the legislature’s powers started before COVID, and were simply accelerated under the usable COVID crisis.
Some contend that this is just politics, and not reaching the level of “Martial Law.”
The Supreme Court in the Duncan decision from 1946 had this to say about the lack of definition, and specifically the lack of a military connection, for the term “Martial Law”:
If a power thus to obliterate the judicial system of Hawaii can be found at all in the Organic Act, it must be inferred from provision for placing the Territory under ‘martial law.’ But the term ‘martial law’ carries no precise meaning. The Constitution does not refer to ‘martial law’ at all and no Act of Congress has defined the term. It has been employed in various ways by different people and at different times. By some it has been identified as ‘military law’ limited to members of, and those connected with, the armed forces. Others have said that the term does not imply a system of established rules but denotes simply some kind of day to day expression of a General’s will dictated by what he considers the imperious necessity of the moment.
In March Whitmer said she was not calling for martial law. She said that clearly she was not doing so because she only wanted a two-week shutdown.

GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger certified the election results in November, giving Joe Biden the state’s 16 electoral votes.
“Working as an engineer throughout my life, I live by that numbers don’t lie. As secretary of state, I believe that the numbers that we have presented today are correct,” Raffensperger said during a news conference. “The numbers reflect the verdict of the people, not a decision by the secretary of state’s office or our courts, or of either campaigns.”
Raffensperger then took no questions.
Even at that time the recount appeared to be rigged because elections officials were not checking signatures and it was also revealed that the state instructed officials to report original vote totals.
Furthermore, only 1 election observer was allowed at every 10 tables.
Several Georgia recount workers, including Democrats, have described odd batches of pristine ballots with perfectly marked bubbles all for Joe Biden during the counts.
One Georgia recount worker went on the record in Wood v. Raffensperger and described an odd batch of ballots that stood out — pristine sheets with no markings that went 98% to Joe Biden.
The monitor describes how ballots that had been handled looked worn and had already been written on — except for a magical pristine batch for Joe Biden.
The recount worker said this pristine batch of ballots had a different texture and that the markings for the candidates were “unusually uniform” as if marked by a ballot-marking device.
President Trump tweeted to Brian Kemp to get tough after virtually zero ballots were rejected this election compared to a 4% rejection rate in years past.
Almost ZERO ballots rejected in Georgia this election. In years past, close to 4%. Not possible. Must have signature check on envelopes now. Very easy to do. Dems fighting because they got caught. Far more votes than needed for flip. Republicans must get tough! @BrianKempGA

Trump tagged Brian Kemp again asking for the signatures to be checked.
Thousands of uncounted votes discovered in Georgia counties. When the much more important signature match takes place, the State will flip Republican, and very quickly. Get it done! @BrianKempGA

But Kemp never did anything. Instead, he certified the results as well on November 21st:
These were big mistakes by Kemp and Raffensperger because on November 12th we had already reported that there was no evidence of any water main break on election night in Atlanta despite reports to the contrary. This reported break was why counters were sent home that night:
Then today we found out that individuals stuck around in the Atlanta Center on election night after the water main break occurred and everyone else was sent home. These individuals then pulled out suitcases from under the tables and kept on doing what they were doing with no supervision and no Republican review:
Wow, so now what does Georgia do? How many thousands of votes were counted in Atlanta on election night after the water main break? Will a real audit finally be performed to identify the real winner of the Presidential election in Georgia or will all the results be thrown out because of Democrat fraud?
Donald Trump, the man, has always been a fighter and a patriot. Now it’s time to fight like he’s never fought before.
ATLANTA — Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said on Thursday that Lin Wood and Sidney Powell’s do not vote strategy would “cripple America.” He said that every Georgian “must” vote in the Georgia Senate runoff elections.
