November 9, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – The Red Wave that appeared to be cresting for President Trump on the evening of November 3rdhad receded by the following morning. Hundreds of thousands of votes had materialized for Joe Biden—seemingly out of nowhere–in the wee hours. And nearly all came from Democrat-controlled cities like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Milwaukee, Atlanta, and Las Vegas.
As my grandfather used to say, “Nothing good happens after midnight.”
As the strange new vote totals have piled up, so have the allegations of massive voter fraud. Many Americans now suspect that the fix was in. As Debbie Aldrich has noted, how likely is it that the “majority of Americans would pick a 78-year-old who can’t remember what office he’s running for to be the Leader of the Free World.”
The Trump team is certainly convinced that they didn’t. If only legally cast ballots are counted, they argue, President Trump easily wins a second term. They are filing multiple lawsuits in both state and federal courts to ask that fraudulent and defective ballots be thrown out.
Given the seriousness of the issues at stake, nearly all of these lawsuits will shortly wind up before the Supreme Court. One already has. Justice Samuel Alito on Friday has already ordered all Pennsylvania county boards of elections to segregate all late arriving ballots. These probably number in the tens or even hundreds of thousands and, if disqualified in whole or in part, will give the state’s 20 electoral votes to Trump.
The last time the Supreme Court had to adjudicate an election happened in 2000. Just like today, the reliably progressive major media outlets were eager to declare Democrat candidate Al Gore to be the winner as recounts targeted to heavily Democrat counties cut into Republican George W. Bush’s small lead in the state. Bush took the matter to court.
After reviewing the evidence, the Supreme Court decided in George Bush’s favor in Bush v. Gore. Bush thus won Florida’s 25 electoral votes and the election.
But if Bush v. Gore was a Category 1 legal hurricane, Trump v. Biden will be a Category 5. And at the very eye of the storm will sit nine Supreme Court justices, deliberating the merits of the many cases that will shortly come before them.
And here, for those who are despairing about the future of the Republic, I have good news.
George W. Bush prevailed in the Supreme Court in part because of the able assistance of two brilliant young attorneys whose names will be familiar to you: Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

Brett Kavanaugh worked for the George W. Bush campaign during the 2000 U.S. presidential election, specifically on the Florida recount and the Bush v. Gore case that went before the Supreme Court.
Amy Coney Barrett provided research and briefing assistance for the legal team at the firm Baker Botts that represented President Bush in Bush v. Gore, the lawsuit that grew out of the 2000 U.S. presidential election.
It is a very happy fact that, thanks to Donald Trump, both Kavanaugh and Barrett now serve as Associate Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, where they will be hearing cases brought by the Trump team.
Now I don’t mean to suggest that their judgement will in any way be affected because they are hearing cases brought by advocates of the same president who nominated them.
What I mean is that these two Supremes are both intimately familiar with election law and also highly qualified to judge whether or not a fraud has been perpetrated on the American voting public. They will know fraud when they see it and, being people of absolute integrity, they will render a just decision. And they will serve as resources and role models for their fellow justices in this regard.
There is one other thing we know about Justices Barrett and Kavanaugh–and also about Justices Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch, for that matter. We know they are not easily intimidated. After all, they have all been subjected to vicious attacks by unhinged progressives, in Thomas’ case for decades on end.
As they deliberate the cases before them, there will be hysterical editorials in the Washington Post about the “end of democracy.” Hysterical mobs will be once again pound on the very doors of the Supreme Court. The pressure on the judges to cave to the will of the mob and the media elite will be intense.
But, for all that, I believe the new majority will uphold their oaths to protect and defend the Constitution and uphold the law as written.
One final point about the man who put them there. Over the past four years the Democrats and their media and Deep State allies have used every dirty trick in the Democrat playbook—spying on his campaign, the phony Steel Dossier, the rigged Mueller investigation, the impeachment hoax, and so on—to cripple Trump’s presidency and drive him from office.
But the President has known for a long time that election fraud is a key part of that playbook. He’s spoken about such chicanery in interviews, at press conferences, and at rallies.
Don’t you think that, knowing this, he wouldn’t have factored in the likelihood of election fraud as he made his Supreme Court picks over the past four years?
In appointing Bush v. Gore veterans, Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court, a brilliant strategist whose last name begins with “T” was thinking ahead several moves to this very moment.
In the game of chess, we have a word for what is coming. We call it “checkmate.”
