#1 The Constitution is clear. It is the legislatures that determine the method of selecting electors, not the executive nor the judiciary.

#3 Why do people on the left (Donks, Rinos, and DP) want to shut off any questions regarding election fraud? Biden's installment into the Presidency had about 100 attendees and 25-30,000 National Guard. He never had more than a handful of people attend the few rallies he had.

Maybe it's time to have a forensic audit on the ballots and returns from all of the states.

Was he really honestly elected?

#4 /\ China Joe ran a notional campaign. There was no need for a full-blown campaign effort. They already had it in the bag and they knew it.

#5 This is a follow up.

Back in late Oct 2020, PILF got an injunction and late ballots w/o postmarks were not counted in the Nov 2020 VA election.

This next ruling makes the injunction permanent.

In any event the number of ballots in question is not particularly great. According to the USPS, fewer than 200,000 ballots nationwide were received after Nov 3, the vast majority of them with legible postmarks.

There are other issues with voting by mail, mainly the issue of identity. In Virginia, the application for a mail ballot required the last 4 of the voter's SSN and the security envelop with the ballot required the same. The Commonwealth stated that for all mail in ballots, the SSN on the application was matched with the SSN on the ballot. This was not as tight as in person voting which, in Virginia, required an actual ID, but it should have prevented large scale fraud.

#6 The local rag has the deets about Judge William Warner Eldridge IV. A former defense attorney, he was elevated to “Hizzoner” in 2015 when his predecessor stepped down for health reasons.

#7 the rule of law hasn't won yet. this will go through the legal process, hopefully all the way to the SC so that it's binding across the board.

#9 going forward a good change to make for voting by mail would be to require both the last 4 SSN and also the driver's license (or State ID).

The SSN is needed because non citizens can only get a SSN with an approval from DHS.

The Driver's license is needed because the DL is linked to a home address in the State where the vote is cast and thus can be verified more easily.

Even with this augment there will be some fraud, e.g., people voting for recently deceased relatives, people voting by taking info from residents of long term facilities, people voting who have recently moved and still have their old driver's license and so forth. But the duel ID requirement for mail voting ought to decrease the fraud by a significant amount.

#10 Lord Garth, But the duel ID requirement for mail voting ought to decrease the fraud by a significant amount.
Decreasing the fraud by any amount is exactly what the Dems don't want

#13 to #5 ... the fraud commes when the 'machine' rejects a ballot and sends it to a person or program that decides what the voter meant to markk. and then marks it accordingly. FFraud also occurs when ballots 'mysteriously' appear and miraculouly change a total. There were some msm programs where the live total mysteriously changed from 75% to 71% suddenly increasing the number od voters i a district.
