‘THIS WILL HELP BUILD CONFIDENCE’: Georgia announces hand recount of all votes

“This will help build confidence,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said. “It will be an audit, a recount and a recanvas all at once.”

After the media’s abominably premature call of a victory for Joe Biden, Republican trust in the election process plummeted, while Democrat trust soared. 

A whopping 70 percent of Republicans now say they don’t believe the 2020 election was free and fair, according to a Politico poll.

But, to ease all worries, Georgia’s secretary of state announced Wednesday that election officials in the state will be conducting a recount – by hand – of all ballots cast in the 2020 presidential race. 

What is at stake? 16 Electoral College votes. 

“This will help build confidence,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said. “It will be an audit, a recount and a recanvas all at once.” 

As President Trump’s campaign continues to file lawsuits in several key battleground states, all 159 counties in the Peach State will undergo a hand recount, expected to be finished by November 20, the state’s deadline to certify election results.

Raffensperger said his office will investigate all claims of voter irregularities. 

“We are committed to counting every legal ballot,” he said in a Tweet. 

The Republican secretary of state has received backlash from the Trump campaign, which requested a manual recount on Tuesday, and GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler even called on him to resign from office over his handling of their races that will head to runoff elections in January, according to the New York Post

“The management of Georgia elections has become an embarrassment for our state,” the two said in a statement Monday. “We believe when there are failures, they need to be called out – even when it’s in your own party.” 

In response to their call for his resignation, Rassensperger said “that is not going to happen.” 

“The voters of Georgia hired me, and the voters will be the one to fire me,” he said in a statement. 

“I’ll continue to fight every day to ensure fair elections in Georgia, that every legal vote counts and that illegal votes don’t count,” he continued.

    But what about the votes they changed? Also, will they be validating that they are legal votes?

    An audit of each ballot needs to be done to insure that only legal ballots are counted!

    My brother’s absentee vote was NOT counted in Augusta, GA. He dropped it off in person on October 30. No record of it being received still. I check every single day.

Biden ‘allies’ concerned with Hollywood lawyer’s ‘aggressive public defense of Hunter Biden’

Published

Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden’s Hollywood attorney buddy Kevin Morris is reportedly upsetting President Joe Biden’s “allies” with his very public defense plan for Hunter. Among the defenses is a plan to question the validity of, and story behind, the New York Post’s exclusive 2020 story on Hunter’s laptop found at a Delaware repair shop.

Another issue of concern, according to a New York Times report, is that Morris gave Hunter a loan totaling over $2 million to pay off his tax debts and take care of his living expenses. “It potentially echoes the cash he received while serving on the board of a Ukrainian oligarch’s company and pursuing deals with a Chinese tycoon, the Times said.”

But President Biden’s supporters want his scandalous son to stay out of the public eye and avoid going to trial. Morris’ tactics, however, are making a big splash. For one, he was recently accused of “spying” on filmmakers who are making an independent movie “My Son Hunter.” The movie allegedly paints an unflattering portrait of the Biden family.

The Times said Morris may try to use footage he shot on the movie’s set located in Serbia to try and “undermine” the film and the laptop. Another potential issue for the Bidens is how Morris came to  be in possession of Hunter’s controversial artwork.

Morris is rumored to be an art collector, and according to one source, Morris might have received Hunter’s art as a gift. The Times cited two people familiar with the story.

Everything is exacerbating the scrutiny the White House has already been under, when it comes to Hunter’s scandals. Hunter and Morris met at a fundraiser for then-candidate Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

Oklahoma Governor Signs Bill Banning Nonbinary On Birth Certificates

Published

on

On Tuesday, Republican Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill banning the use of nonbinary as a gender option on state birth certificates.

The new law, SB 1100, requires all birth certificates in the state to only allow male or female as gender options.

The law says that it “requires the biological sex designation on a birth certificate to be either male or female and prohibits a nonbinary or any symbol representing a nonbinary designation including the letter ‘X’ beginning on the effective date of this act. The measure declares an emergency.”

“People are free to believe whatever they want about their identity, but science has determined people are either biologically male or female at birth,” said Oklahoma Rep. Sheila Dills, the House sponsor of the bill, in a statement. “We want clarity and truth on official state documents. Information should be based on established medical fact and not an ever-changing social dialogue.”

“As the war on common sense continues, we must stand up and put a stop to this nonsense regarding biological sex,” said Michael Bergstrom, R-Adair, the principal author of the bill. “It’s not a complicated issue – biologically, you’re either a male or female. There should be no other option to choose from on a birth certificate. I’m thankful my colleagues in the House of Representatives also saw the need to stand behind science and approve this measure.”

Stitt’s signing of the bill comes after he signed an executive order in November 2021 directing the Oklahoma Health Department to stop issuing or changing birth certificates with nonbinary as a gender option.
