December 16, 2020 (American Thinker) — One of the most disturbing things about the 2020 election was to see the big tech companies place their thumbs so heavily on the Biden scale. From overt censorship to sending voting reminders only to Democrats to Google/YouTube’s announcement that it’s deplatforming any challenges to challenge Biden’s fraudulent victory, it’s been tyranny all the way down. Word is now emerging that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg may have played one of the biggest roles in swinging the election outcome.
One of the things Facebook did all through the election season was to label conservative posts as inaccurate. It then pointed to allegedly “non-partisan” fact-checking reports that purportedly contained the correct information. I reported here about a ludicrous Facebook censorship effort that directed readers to a manifestly biased, and quite stupid, AP article.
The Federalist reported a similar story, which occurred when Mollie Hemingway wrote a wildly popular article pointing out, accurately, that no one had successfully debunked the infamous Georgia vote-counting video. Facebook immediately announced that a third-party fact-checker – Lead Stories – had flagged Hemingway’s article as untrue.
American Thinker dealt with that site’s fake debunking effort here. The Federalist report about Lead Stories’ fake fact-checking added that the site is not only gets funding from Google and ByteDance, a Beijing headquartered company, it gets money from Facebook too.
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!

Just a couple of days later, news emerged that USA Today, which Facebook also uses as an “independent fact-checker,” relies on wildly partisan college students to do its fact-checking.
Now it turns out that one of the most important Facebook employees, the one responsible for certifying the allegedly impartial fact-checking process, is “unashamedly politically biased” against Donald Trump and was a fanatic fan of Hillary Clinton. According to Sky News Australia,
International Fact-Checking Network certifier and American University School of Communication professor Margot Susca is unashamedly politically biased but she was responsible for issuing 19 fact-check licenses or reviews for organisations to become fact-checkers.
This includes the Associated Press, Check Your Fact, Decrypteurs, Lead Stories, Media Wise and The Dispatch.
Ms Susca has appeared on propaganda network Russia Today to criticise President Trump and has tweeted that it would be a “dereliction of duty” to broadcast his speeches.
In 2019 Ms Susca posted a happy snap with failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton where she admitted “I’ve been on Team Hillary since 08 tbh” and said she was disappointed her likability did not resonate with the public in 2016.
Of course, when one talks about Facebook, one is really talking about Mark Zuckerberg. It turns out that Zuckerberg played an inordinately large role in helping set up unconstitutional voting systems in the disputed states. Phill Kline, a former attorney general for Kansas and the current director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, testified to the Wisconsin legislature about Zuckerberg’s involvement
Of all the people I’ve heard since the election, both lawyers and non-lawyers, talking about the fraud at issue here, and about the specific activity in which Zuckerberg engaged, I’ve yet to hear someone speak with Kline’s power and clarity. (And, yes, I know about Kline’s war against abortionists, which saw him give up his law license. I don’t believe that has any bearing on the clarity with which he communicates the issues here.)
Spend 12 minutes watching this video and you will have a deeper understanding of the fraud issues in this election:
No one person should have as much power as Mark Zuckerberg, and no corporations should have the power that the tech companies have amassed. The essence of my conservativism is a deep bias against consolidated power, whether in government or individual hands. Watching what Facebook did before, during, and after this election surely supports my philosophy.
