If something happens but it’s not reported… did it really happen?

President Trump makes an allegation regarding fraud but it only gets coverage by One America News or Newsmax did the fraud happen? The major TV networks and newspapers in the United States have blacked out any coverage of alleged voter fraud. Twitter, Facebook, and Google flag every post and video telling us that Biden won.

Trump tweeted today about a discrepancy in the number of voters voting versus the number of ballots recieved.

I wanted to check the veracity of his claim so I did a search. I could only find a single story that could be deemed legitimate reported by WJAC-TV in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Where is Johnstown? It’s a small town east of Pittsburgh. Their coverage doesn’t even extend to Pittsburgh so their story isn’t reaching a major metropolitan area.

Ryan says they found that 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast, while DoS/SURE system records indicated that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted.

Among the 6,962,607 total ballots cast, 6,931,060 total votes were counted in the presidential race, including all three candidates on the ballot and write-in candidates, according to Ryan.

He says the difference of 202,377 more votes cast than voters voting, together with the 31,547 over- and under-votes in the presidential race, adds up to a discrepancy of 170,830 votes, which is more than twice the reported statewide difference between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

There are no claims in the story as to what the discrepancy means. But isn’t an investigation of the claim warranted? How does it help the legitimacy of an election when the allegations of fraud or irregularities aren’t reported on or investigated? If our governments and media want to stop conspiracy theories why not bring these things to light. If there is a valid reason for the allegation then fine let’s air it out. But, if the allegations are true and there is some kind of fraud or inadvertent errors or mishandling of votes or data then we need to know that too in order to make the next election better.

In the same story is the response from the Pennsylvania Department of State.

We are unclear as to what data the legislators used for this most recent “analysis.” But the only way to determine the number of voters who voted in November from the SURE system is through the vote histories. At this time, there are still a few counties that have not completed uploading their vote histories to the SURE system. These counties, which include Philadelphia, Allegheny, Butler and Cambria, would account for a significant number of voters. The numbers certified by the counties, not the uploading of voter histories into the SURE system, determines the ultimate certification of an election by the secretary.

One side says one thing and the other side says another. The allegations are made by elected representatives not Joe Blow from down the street. Who can know what to make of it? Especially if it is not being widely reported. It gives the feeling of a cover up.

What we are watching before our very eyes is the total corruption of our “news” media. I’m curious to see where this leads us over the next several years. One day the people perpetrating this news blackout will get blacked-out themselves. The pendulum swings in both directions. Enjoy your fascism now because history tells us it doesn’t last forever.
