Was the election stolen? A forensic analysis can help restore faith in democracy.

The votes of the people do count,

recount, show corrected amount

But with voting machines,

code with “glitchy” routines;

by hand we must do a recount.

Ever since the election there have been loud voices proclaiming that the election was stolen. Most of the media have claimed that it was the greatest lie ever told by candidate Trump.

over 70% of Republican voters still believe that the election was stolen. Even about 30% of the Democrats believe so also, but many of them don’t mind, since it was for a greater purpose.

This is no way to try to unite the nation. There is a good way to resolve it, by conducting a forensic analysis of at least 6 states, all battleground states.

These are the allegations in the form of a handy chart.

In addition, such as the allegations from Antrim County in Michigan seem to  question the validity of the whole voting system, with machines connected to the internet during counting and numerous other problems, and if these questions are not further investigated I will never believe in an election again.

If all of the allegations will be proven false, I stand corrected.

China, Myanmar, U.S.A. and rare earth metals. This may be serious.

In early May, 2019, President Xi and Vice Premier Liu He, China’s top trade negotiator, visited a rare earth metals mine in Jiangxi province. This has led to the rumor that China is seriously considering restricting rare earth exports to the US. China may also take other countermeasures in the future. The trade negotiations between U.S. and China got a lot more serious. It extended far beyond tariffs and intellectual property, it began to involve control of strategic materials.

The first thing we must realize is that rare earth metals are not all that rare. They are a thousand times or more abundant than gold or platinum in the earth crust and easy to mine, but a little more difficult to refine. Thorium and Uranium will  also be mined at the same time as the rare earth metals since they appear together in the ore.

U.S. used to be the major supplier of rare earth metals, which was fine up to around 1984. Then the U.S. regulators determined that Uranium and Thorium contained in the ore made the ore radioactive, so the regulatory agencies decided to make rare earth metal ore subject to nuclear regulations with all what that meant for record keeping and control. This made mining of rare earth metals in the U.S. unprofitable, so in 2001 the last domestic mine closed down. China had no such scruples, such as human or environmental concerns, so they took over the rare earth metals mining and in 2010 controlled over 95% of the world supply, which was according to their long term plan of controlling the world by 2025.

Rare Earth Element Production

The U.S. used to have a strategic reserve of rare earth metals, but that was sold off in 1998 as being no longer cost effective or necessary. Two years later the one U.S. rare earth metals mine that used to supply nearly the whole world, the Mountain Pass Mine in California closed down, together with its refining capacity. From that day all rare earth metals were imported.

The U.S. used to have a strategic reserve of rare earth metals, but that was sold off in 1998 as being no longer cost effective or necessary. Two years later the one U.S. rare earth metals mine that used to supply nearly the whole world, the Mountain Pass Mine in California closed down, together with its refining capacity. From that day all rare earth metals were imported. In 2010 it started up again together with the refining capacity but went bankrupt in 2015, closed down the refining but continued selling ore to China. They restarted  refining again late 2020.

 

So, why is this important? Just take a look at all the uses for rare earth metals. The most sought after pays all the cost of mining and refining, and the rest are readily available at nominal cost.

The Chinese almost got away with it, and that is but one reason the trade negotiations were so complicated and hard fought, but necessary. Donald Trump fought for reciprocity and fair competition.

For example, according to a 2013 report from the Congressional Research Service, each F35 Lightning II aircraft requires 920 pounds of rareearth materials. Who is making the most critical parts to this airplane? You guessed it – China, from our drawings and according to our specifications.

Here is  a picture of the F-35

And here is a picture of the Chinese clone, the J-20, stealth capacity and all.

It is a lot cheaper to steal technology than to develop your own.

Not all rare earth metals are of equal importance, and this is reflected in their price. The rare earth metals mined in Myanmar are high in the most sought after metals, such as neodymium and dysprosium 

November saw the prices of all major Chinese-sourced rare earths spike, but especially those used in magnets. In particular, the research note mentioned neodymium, which is the most common rare earth used in making magnets, which rose by 27% since early in November, up over 50% year to date. Several other key rare earths also increased in value last month, including dysprosium (+17%), gadolinium (+9%) and terbium (+27%).

Another factor in the price surge is a new law that came into force in China on December 1, Hamilton noted. Known as the Export Control Law, it creates new regulations that give the government more control over such exports as technology and rare earths.

It turns out that Myanmar provides half of China’s need for neodymium and dysprosium, so any disruption in the supply would be most unwelcome for China.

China has been hard at work trying to keep a near monopoly on rare earth metals, by securing patents> Here is a chart of recently issued patents

Yogi Berra once said: Predictions are hard, especially about the future Here are the predictions for rare earth metals prices:

On February 1 there was a coup in Myanmar, and the military took over power. Prices of some rare earth metals spiked to more than estimated 2025 levels.

China has been quietly exploring the economic damage it could inflict to US and European companies – including defense contractors – if they were to impose export ‘restrictions’ on 17 rare-earth materials, according to a report in the Financial Times.

FT added that “[t]he Ministry of Industry and Information Technology last month proposed draft controls on the production and export of 17 rare earth minerals in China, which controls about 80% of global supply.”

Before being voted out of office, President Trump and his administration sought to take steps that might help the US limit China’s resource dominance in this area, including signing an executive order declaring a “national emergency” in the US mining and minerals industry (much of which remains focused on digging coal out of the ground). China has been widely acknowledged as dominant in the rare-earth minerals market for decades.

But with Trump out, and a much more China-friendly administration back in power in Washington, it looks like Beijing is already considering playing hardball to get what it wants.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration is considering sanctions against Myanmar, a country that is poorer than Bangladesh.

China is the world’s dominant producer of rare earths, a group of 17 minerals used in consumer electronics and military equipment. But it relied on Myanmar for about half its heavy rare earth concentrates in 2020, says Adamas Intelligence managing director Ryan Castilloux.

Myanmar is therefore an “exceptionally critical supplier of … feedstocks that are essential ingredients in high-strength permanent magnets for electric vehicle traction motors, wind power generators, industrial robots and a wide array of defense-related applications”, he said.

There has been no sign of disruption for now, since Myanmar’s rare earth mines are under the control of autonomous militia groups, but the test will come after the Lunar New Year holiday, which has just ended.

 

 

 

Votes changed by the millions in the 2020 election, by foreign countries no less

The votes that were cast in this land

were changed. It has got out of hand.

Yes, the votes that were sent

for adjudicate meant.

This land bowed to China’s command.

It is to be noted that the switched votes, from Trump to Biden and from Jo Jorgensen to Biden is not a complete list. It involves only six states, and the confessed vote switching that occurred in Italy is not yet included.

 

At the very least we should conduct an audit, involving manual recount. The audit done in Antrim County, Michigan where over 60% of the votes went for adjudication – over the internet is as big a red flag as I have ever seen.

If, after a manual audit and recount of all valid votes the reported numbers are correct I stand corrected, but if not I am convinced the election was stolen – by many foreign powers no less. I am not alone in this assertion, over 70% of Republicans believe the election was stolen and even 30% of Democrats believe so also.

Voting irregularities too numerous to count. Let’s count the ways.

Voting irregularities occurred in many ways in many states. Here are but a few of them:

Besides sworn testimonies of voter fraud there are also rumors about additional filled in ballots shipped from China. A forensic investigation will dispel these rumors.

Georgia is interesting. One small county did their recount by hand but came up with a different result than the voting machines. They had to back down since the law said that they had to be machine counted. A number of ballots were taken to the shredders.

Michigan is a special case. In Antrim county there was a vote about opening up a marijuana store in a small town. The vote came up tied, so a recount was ordered. It then showed the voting machines came up with different result dependent on which version of the software was used. The judge ordered an investigation of the voting machines, and the result was published

https://lenbilen.com/2020/12/14/antrim-michigan-forensics-report/

Judge for yourself.

The authorities couldn’t figure out what happened to the result of the local election in one county, so they threw out the local results but certified the state results of the nationwide votes.

Since I live in Pennsylvania I had a particular interest in following the election result as the voting count proceeded. The anomalies were too numerous to count

Let me point to two that caught my attention:

https://lenbilen.com/2021/01/19/why-so-few-libertarian-votes-in-the-last-election-a-clue-from-pennsylvania-and-a-limerick/      How did that happen?

https://lenbilen.com/2020/11/25/pennsylvania-certified-the-2020-vote-fraud-and-all-the-numbers-do-not-add-up/                 How did that happen?

 

There are some more points of interest, and California is an example of more people voting in a county than there are eligible voters

https://lenbilen.com/2020/11/09/voter-fraud-in-california-yes-millions-of-non-citizens-with-drivers-licenses-voted/

And the voting results for Biden did not follow Benford’s Law., but they did follow Benford’s law for Trump. This method is used forensically to find criminal behavior in economic audits to point to areas of fraud.

John Kerry, the climate Czar, a Limerick.

John Kerry in private jet flies

all over our God-given skies.

Carbon neutral he ain’t;

not my only complaint.

Spews out all the climate scare lies.

Yes, John Kerry must have been the only choice for environmental Czar. After all, he already has six houses, twelve cars, a yacht and his own private jet.

He will promote off-shore wind power, except outside one of his homes, solar power, but no new power lines anywhere near one of his homes, anddo away with coal.

I too want to limit coal consumption, but for an entirely different reason. I want to save some for future generations, and especially when we enter the next ice-age, which may be nearer than most people think.

Now, much better than spend all our natural resources on building wind and solar power is to rapidly develop Thorium Nuclear power for most electricity production. It is the only realistic power source for a Moon colony, and in the last few days of the Trump administration small portable nuclear power stations were promoted for military use. As far as I know, President Biden has not yet rescinded that executive order. Let’s hope he won’t.

 

 

 

Biden stops Keystone XL construction at great environmental cost.

Newly elected Joe Biden has decided to stop building the Keystone XL pipeline, thus satisfying the environmentalists that want to wean us off our dependency on carbon based products, such as fuel, food and fertilizer. The arguments for denying the decision are nearly exclusively political, while the arguments to build the pipeline are concerns for our national security, economy and the environment.

Here is the deal:

Canada has the tar-sands and is extracting the oil. This was not our decision. If we don’t buy the oil, China will.

We export refined products to the Caribbean islands, which by the way have a larger carbon footprint per person than the U.S. This is good business, since the islands are too small to have a refinery of their own.

It takes more energy to run a refinery up north in a cold climate than in hot, humid Baytown, Texas.

The last time a major oil refinery was built in the U.S was 1976. A small refinery was built in 1993, in Valdez, Alaska. The  US. regulatory climate is hostile to refineries. Warren Buffett bought Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad in February 2010 and paid 44 Billion dollars for it. The railroad paid Berkshire Hathaway 2.25 Billion in dividends during the first 13 months. Warren Buffet bought the railroad after President Obama took office, since he nixed the pipeline the first time.

Right now the crude oil is transported from the Athabasca tar sands to Houston mostly by Warren Buffet’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC railroad. It is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that did stand to benefit from the decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.
With modest expansion, railroads can handle all new oil produced in western Canada through 2030, according to an analysis of the Keystone proposal by the U.S. State Department.
https://lenbilen.com/2012/01/25/warren-buffet-profiting-from-working-on-the-railroad/
The cost of transporting the oil is about #14 dollars per barrel, much of it the cost of burning diesel fuel, generating CO2. The pipe-line can do the job for about seven dollars per barrel, much of it capital costs, some of it already spent.
We can see what happens when transporting crude oil: https://lenbilen.com/2013/07/07/ttain-derailment-in-quebec-and-keystone-xl-pipeline-a-limerick/

Warren Buffet is a major Democratic political player; he will again have frequent access to the White House. Last year the Warren Buffet organizations donated 58 million dollars to the Biden presidential campaign.

Sarah Palin once succinctly coined the phrase: “This is Crony Capitalism.”

By not importing oil from Canada the total carbon footprint will increase. We lose, and Canada loses. (I am not concerned that the CO2 is increasing, but that a valuable natural resource is unnecessary depleted.) Now it turns out that Canada has left the Kyoto Protocol but has joined the Paris accord, so they have to export the crude oil to countries that still can expand their fossil fuel burning, such as China, but they would rather export to the U.S.

So why is Joe Biden against the Keystone XL pipeline? Here are seven possibilities:

1. Like Obama, Joe Biden is a true believer that ”this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”.

2. Joe wants to deliberately wreck our economy to create a more fair society of shared sacrifices, refuses to have an energy policy that will create jobs, but will support protest movements and foment unrest.

3. Joe is acting on orders from Global Governance people that do want U.S. to be totally dependent on international law and U.N. mandates.

4. Joe wants to show leadership in implementing the Paris Climate Conference 2015, and its associated treaty.

5. Joe Biden wants to show leadership on something, like touting the “breakthrough” agreement with China, where China is allowed to emit six times as much CO2 as the U.S. by the year 2030.

6. The real reason? Like Obama, Joe is fully bought and paid for, this time by China. The old reason: https://lenbilen.com/2014/02/14/the-real-reason-obama-wont-approve-the-keystone-xl-pipeline/

7. Joe is half insane and surrounded by bad advisors.

This is the best I can do to explain the reasons for this decision.

Why so few Libertarian votes in the last election? A clue from Pennsylvania. And a Limerick.

The votes Libertarians lost

went somewhere, but at a great cost.

For integrity’s sake

Let’s recount and remake.

If not, we are all double-crossed.

If you hate Donald Trump, but can’t get yourself to vote for the Biden Harris ticket, what to do? After all Harris dropped out of the competition with less than 2% support before the Iowa primary and Biden came in fifth in the New Hampshire primary. I fully expected that the libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen would get at least as many votes in 2020 as her predecessor got in 2016. Instead the vote count dropped from 3.3% to 1.2%.

Here is a hint of what happened; this time on election night in Pennsylvania:Between 12:09 a.m. and 12:15 a.m. Jo Jorgensen LOST 42,038 votes. Where did they go? It is my assumption that they went to Biden. Only a manual recount of Pennsylvania can resolve this. As it stands now, we have no election integrity.

Election fraud all over the country! A Limerick.

From a small precinct in Antrim County, Michigan comes this astounding vote result:

“Dominion’s voting machine totals showed 663 people voted in a district where there were only 6 eligible voters and only 3 of those 6 actually voted. Somehow, Dominion added 660 additional votes to the final tally.”

The votes that were counted in Antrim

would lead to a truth seeker’s tantrum

Find the Trump votes to trim

Add to Biden for win

the cheat, steal and change votes to grant him.

These are the so called “glitches” in the software. Some voting machines were connected to the internet while counting was going on. All results from the thumb drives were uploaded to the live feed given to NYT and the Guardian for  online real time election result display. But an even more detailed feed was transmitted worldwide and was archived in Germany. The voting machines that were connected to the internet could have been modified from another server, either domestically or by a foreign power, for example, China. They had an interest in electing Biden.

This is no way to run an election! Banks can do safe transactions without any “glitches”. Voting is much easier to make secure. Granted, you need ID to deal with the bank and voting is anonymous after eligibility is established. To solve this, record the verified ID and signature of the application,complete with an encrypted code. Then print the same encrypted code on the paper vote and the return envelope. Then the signature checks can be made automatic, and the vote itself is traceable, and only those machines with access to the encryption code can identify the vote.

Gateway Pundit shows how part of the fraud was done:

The vote count in Wade County, Georgia, an “election fraud 101” lesson, a Limerick.

Thanks, OAN!

The votes that was counted in Wade

to Biden were switched, or mislaid.

What was meant for Don Trump

switched to Biden, or dumped.

New Age, like of Marquis de Sade.
