WHY THE DEMS ARE IN PANIC OVER THE ARIZONA AUDIT
All eyes are on Arizona. Republicans and Trump supporters are certain that the ongoing audit will prove their over-arching allegation that election integrity was nonexistent in the state during the 2020 election.
Democrats and their media sycophants are trying to have both sides of a counter-argument: the audit is “fatally flawed” due to lack of security and faulty procedures, and yet, the election was “the most secure ever,” the allegations of irregularities are unsupported, and there is no need for an audit (all the while fighting through the legal system to shut down the audit on the flimsiest of pretenses).
Here is how leftwing kook Rachel Maddow and Soros-backed Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D) frame the audit:
Democrats argue that The Hologram won the election overwhelmingly. One would think that they would be delighted to stick it to Republicans politically by conducting a forensic audit that would prove their case and embarrass anyone supporting former President Trump’s “The Big Lie” claim.
That proof would also destroy Trump’s credibility completely, making it impossible for him to mount any kind of comeback in 2024. Isn’t that exactly what the Democrats have been trying to do over the past four years through their various hoaxes and impeachment gambits, i.e., to finally “get rid of Trump”?
That they’re not fully supportive of a full forensic audit – and manically against it instead — speaks volumes. What are they hiding by both fighting tooth-and-nail to derail the audit while at the same time giving it their all to discredit the findings even before the results are known?
This might be the understatement of the year:
“Democrats are really worried about the Arizona audit because Democrats know what they did.

And here is why.
The inimitable Ray Blehar, a retired senior DoD analyst, has just completed a top-level analysis of the Maricopa County results. He previously identified irregularities associated with “missing” write-in and minor party ballots in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and nationally that he believes were manually adjudicated to provide The Hologram’s margin of victory. His key findings in Maricopa are earth-shaking:
- Two massive vote dumps occurred in just over an hour after the Arizona polls closed totally ~625,000 and ~1,473,000 votes, respectively.
- The total of those two vote dumps (2,098,619) exceeded the official results total of Maricopa County votes cast (2,089,563) by more than 9,000 votes.
- Biden received more votes in those two vote dumps (1,161,582) than the official vote tally (1,040,774) in Maricopa County. (Was this the reason for that suspicious fire?)
- Those dumps could only have been absentee ballot early voting results that were counted legally in the two weeks before Election Day, as late-arriving absentee ballots and election day in-person voting results could not possibly have been included in those two dumps uploaded just over an hour after the polls closed.
- Those vote dumps were time-stamped making it impossible that those dumps came from any county other than Maricopa, as no other Arizona county delivered more than 525,000 votes, and any two or more counties necessary to contribute to either of those dumps would have had to time their uploads down to the second (an impossibility).
- In-person voting in Maricopa County on Election Day totaled 167,000 votes cast, per multiple sources (here and here); how were those in-person votes accounted for when the two early voter dumps identified above already exceeded the official number of votes cast in the county?
Other supporting information Blehar allegedly uncovered illuminates those incredible discrepancies.
According to numbers from Edison Research (used by all major media), Biden earned approximately 249,000 more votes than Trump in Maricopa County, as depicted in the table below. Note the “Biden lead” column is cumulative, whereas the other columns represent discrete numbers for each vote dump.
According to the official Arizona government website there are over 100,000 more registered Republicans than Democrats in Maricopa County, as shown in the below table:
The other registered voters (the independents shown in the right-most column) delivered ~226,000 votes to Biden and ~80,000 votes to Trump despite polling showing independents favored Biden by only 9 points (53-44%).
Biden receiving nearly three times as many of those votes as Trump is HIGHLY unlikely because even that 9-point split is suspect, as virtually all polls exaggerated Biden’s lead among independents nationwide.
The absentee/early balloting across the state was almost evenly split, with Democrats having only a 9,000-ballot edge (~923,000 to ~914,000). Interestingly, Maricopa County absentee/early balloting numbers were never made available.
If anything, the split in Maricopa would have been tilted in favor of Trump due to the registration advantage enjoyed by Republicans, making it even more unlikely that Biden could have achieved a lead of ~249,000 votes in Maricopa after those two voter dumps.
Furthermore, exit polls had Trump and Biden within the margin of error in Maricopa (50-48%) — unadjusted for Trump voter deception in which a sizeable fraction of Trump voters had been determined to not have been honest with pollsters throughout 2020.
That deception cuts both ways, and probably more so among Democrat crossovers, given the large presence of Democrats at Trump rallies throughout the campaign.
Arizona exit polls showed 96% loyalty among Democrats. Are you kidding me? It was probably more like 88% — based on post mortems by pollsters. Likewise, 91% loyalty for Trump among GOP voters is more likely to be 95% based on the same post mortems. The bottom line? Exit polling and post mortem analysis make Biden’s ~249,000 vote margin in Maricopa County seem even more suspicious.
Conclusion: In my opinion, Ray Blehar has identified more than enough “irregularities” to warrant conducting the forensic audit that is underway. Some of these statistical anomalies cannot be simply wished away by the likes of Katie Hobbs and Perkins Coie.
For example, how on Earth was it possible that those two early voter dumps totaled more votes than were OFFICIALLY cast in Maricopa County, and without including same-day and late-arriving absentee ballots cast?
In my opinion, the only question remaining at this point is how many fraudulent votes in Maricopa County will the auditors uncover.
No wonder the Dems are in panic.
