Big Picture, 2022 Midterm Elections Highlight
the Distinct Difference Between Ballots
and Votes

Original Article

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. It appears in some states this is the ‘new normal.’ Where votes were the focus, the Biden administration suffered losses. Where ballots were the focus, the Biden administration won.


As usual, Sundance gets to heart of the matter. No, it wasn’t Trump, nor was it weak candidates.

This is why this was the “craziest” election ever and defied all predictions. Ballot harvesting is how they won in 2020.( 81 million ballots harvested. Not 81 million votes.) And this is how it will be done going forward, so kiss our Constitutional Republic goodby. We are living in a Democracy now! - God help us.

How wager that you'll never see Sundance admit to being wrong. That the never-ending obsequence to Donald Trump could possibly have any deleterious effects. I'm still waiting for Sundance to show me the results they said were imminent regarding all the prior predictions regarding Mr Trump.

Let's hope the Republicans can get control of the Senate and House, no matter how thin the margin. Trump worked harder than anyone to win, and drug some candidates into wins, they would not have won otherwise. I don't think McConnell drug anyone across the finish line, being an inactive man.

President Trump did work harder than anyone else, but he also needs to temper some of his rhetoric and comments. He's no longer an outsider, so that can't be used as an excuse. I do like that he's blunt and direct, but he does not need to gush about certain things, or harp on certain things either. You don't trash and bash your own side, especially during the campaign. We need to realize many Republicans are not fully up to speed on the current election laws and processes. And, each state is a bit different than the other too. Example, Harmeet Dillon was mentioning how the Maricopa County Republicans didn't have enough of the right type of ink for the printers. Need to stick to the knitting and remember, all politics is local. If ballot harvesting is acceptable in California, then the GOP needs to be actively working that angle, and ensure they have all the election data and data-mining well in advance. Also need to be the party that wants to help, not be viewed as taking things away (cuts). How can the system work but not be so bloated, redundant or excessive?

The Bigger Picture - we need to launch a massive ballot harvesting campaign in Georgia to pull Herschel over the finish line next month. We won't be able to change many minds there who voted for Warnock. Rather, find people who didn't vote on November 8th and who would have voted for Herschel and collect and deliver their ballots for them to the ballot boxes. Beat the dims at their own game. This is it, folks. Unless somebody has a better idea how to show Warnock the door. Republican control of the US Senate hinges on this race. Just sit on our asses again like we usually do or are we finally going to get up and do something. You don't need to live in Georgia to make a difference. What's it going to be?

If I were a Democrat, this is exactly the analysis I would hope a Republican would make. And I wouldn’t interrupt because one ought never interrupt his opponent while that opponent is making a mistake. Sundance gives us an evidence free analysis, an argument from personal incredulity. Big mistake.

And there it is. Fraud Joe Biden didn't lie when he said Republicans are a threat to democracy. The left's democracy of full-blown ballot collecting with their mob rule in the stink hole known as Washington. If nothing changes the communist on the left have the solution to winning now. if it is not corrected to just 'voting' the republicans can never win again. Complaining and doing nothing to combat it then 2024 will be the same. 2024 will be the last year I vote if my vote is canceled by 10 or 20 ballots and idiots like Harris and Buttigieg can beat the best we have and don't even need to campaign. It's adios for me after 2024 because the Republic is over.

The one thing I know for sure is that we Republicans were played for fools. Again. And we fell into it. Who in the world started the “red wave” bs? This country is almost evenly divided and the polls were neck and neck at the very end. We KNOW when the polls are evenly split the dems always win. Haven’t we seen this time after time? But someone wrote an article about a stinking red wave and we fell for it like chumps and now we look like incompetent idiots. I am so angry. I absolutely hate being manipulated, it’s the ugliest thing in the world you can do to a person and the dems do it all the time. I think that’s why so many people love Trump so much. He sees what they’re doing and fights back. Me…I’m not even aware of being jerked around. Duh. Says a lot about me doesn’t it.

Absolutely true. The 2020 election taught them one thing, that ballot harvesting was more lucrative and less controversial (for now) than messing with software in voting machines. We will need to gain power in the Federal government to invoke a nation-wide law against ballot harvesting.

The answer, fellow Republicans, is not to sit there and whine but to go out there in the next election and beat the Democrats at their own game. When they realize we are just as good at harvesballoting ts as they are, the nonsense of elections by ballots will come to an end.

Excellent article, Sundance. Hundreds of thousands of ballots-nay, millions maybe- are being harvested by Democrat activists in nursing homes and group homes from vulnerable adults who don't even know their names and cannot tie their shoes. In many cases, the staffers in these facilities are fellow radical activists to the point of using their government funded para transit buses to haul the residents to the polling places and assist them in marking their ballots. This is something we need to emulate if it cannot be outlawed. That and the last minute phone bank calling used by Unions to help Democrats 'get out the vote'. Mail in ballots are just as crooked with radical postal workers deciding which ballots to deliver, and then which pick up and return. When they see a Trump sign in the old couples' front yard, what do you think they will decide to do with those ballots?

I see this as little more than a continuation of the perennial Republican problem: they got NO ground game. Used to be on election day the democrats would ferry democrat voters to the polling places to make SURE they voted, while Republicans just sat around and hoped all their campaigning would pay off. Now, instead of driving voters to polling places, democrat vans haul boxes of pre-marked democrat ballots to drop boxes. Welcome to 21st Century American elections. Republicans can cry about it, or get off their backsides and participate. It's a new day. Is that coffee I smell?

The Real Clear average had Republicans +2.5 on the generic poll. In reality it turned into +5.6 on election day but that only netted maybe 8 congressional seats give or take. How does that happen? Well turns out the Dems are not only better at vote harvesting and devising bizarre voting systems like ranked choice voting but they are also better at gerrymandering and getting their rigged districts through the courts. They got a little help from the Census Bureau as well. Republicans get outlawyered, Dems do a better job of both venue shopping and selecting totally partisan judges. See the PA supreme court if you need proof. We lost this election long before election night. It wasn't Trump Derangement or abortion that was the problem. It was the other side has better lawyers.

If CTH had a small part in helping people to reset their reference points around modern electioneering, well, that’s a good thing. The difference between “ballots” and “votes” is previously explained {SEE HERE} and absolutely critical to understand before moving forward. Thankfully a large percentage of conservatives, intellectually honest independents and even some establishment republican donors have read our research and are now starting to have the ‘votes‘ vs ‘ballots‘ conversation. That understanding is critical, because any conversation that does not accurately identify and accept the problem is futile.CORRECTIONS*

The old axiom where someone yells, “look over there folks, shiny things“… as a process of distraction, is entirely apropos of how corporations that are running our current election systems are using the Trump -v- DeSantis discussion; with the backdrop of the 2022 midterm election as context. So, before moving forward to the heart of what we are being distracted from, check out this article from David Solway, he’s correct. Unless and until the critical issue of “votes” -vs- “ballots” is corrected, pushing DeSantis into the war against the administrative state is akin to throwing a decent general into a lost war.

President Trump can see and hear the same things everyone else can see and hear, including the coordinated media and GOPe effort to diminish him and the MAGA movement within the Republican club. The Democrats and professional Republican class both want to see the populist movement destroyed for the same reason Mitch McConnell wanted the Tea Party destroyed in 2010. The assembly of the united middle-class and blue-collar base inside the Republican Party, essentially the broad MAGA movement, represents a Main Street threat to Wall Street control of the GOPe.

The delayed “official results” from Colorado, Arizona and Nevada are all part of the organized narrative engineering from SoS offices, party officials (local and state) and corporate media. It’s transparent now. There were key “target races”, not defined for political outcomes per se’ but rather …. they were identified for official media targeting; for script writing and narrative engineering; under the guise of being identified as “key races” to sense, gauge and create a storyline for election distribution by corporate media.

As recently as this month, a Qatar World Cup ambassador told a German TV broadcaster that homosexuality was 'damage to the mind', and it remains illegal to be gay in the conservative Muslim country.

Bankman-Fried himself could face civil or criminal charges.
