Guest Opinion: Friends of NIC Fake Suggested Ballot is Treasonous
OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.
You are no doubt aware of the political advertising campaign waged by the connected groups North Idaho "Republicans" (NIR), and "Friends" of NIC (FoNIC), in the recent election.
I don't know about you, but for some time I did not realize the full implications of what was going on in that regard.
What opened my eyes was that I spent the Saturday before the election helping one of our precinct committeemen canvass his precinct.
I took notes on my experience.
Out of fifteen people that I actually spoke to, four expressed confusion as to whom the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee (KCRCC) was recommending. They trusted the KCRCC's judgment, and wanted to vote its line, but because of the fliers mailed out by NIR and FoNIC, weren't sure who the real Republican party in Kootenai County was, KCRCC or NIR.
Of these four, two had already downloaded a sample ballot for the precinct, and filled it out preparatory to actually voting. They had changed some of their votes from the KCRCC recommendations, which they had intended to follow, to those of NIR. It seems they thought that the KCRCC and the NIR were the same organization, and that there had been a *change* in the KCRCC recommendations.
Now, let's be generous and consider that NIR's and FoNIC's false advertising fooled only the two people that I just mentioned, and that the other two would have voted the real KCRCC recommends as they intended.
Let's crunch the numbers:
2/15 = 0.13 = 13%
That's 13% of voters on the KCRCC canvassing list that voted against their intentions, and against the KCRCC recommends, due to the false advertising of NIR/FoNIC.
Now consider this:
I am just some random guy, asked by some random precinct committeeman, to help canvass his precinct, and moreover, I canvassed random areas of that precinct.
What are the chances that my results would significantly differ from the average, if such data had been collected throughout Kootenai County?
But again, let's be generous to NIR and FoNIC, and assume that my results were an outlier. Let's go to the extreme of cutting that 13% in half, to 6.5%.
No, let's be ridiculous, and cut it in half again, to 3.25%
The margin of victory for all three NIC trustee positions was less than this.
Why am I telling you all this?
It's because voter fraud, which is treason against both Idaho and the nation, is happening right here, right now, in our midst, and I want to do something about it. We have to stop this NOW, and send the strongest possible message to the Lying Left that any messing around with the election system, which is the foundation upon which government runs, will be considered the act of war which it is, and will be met with uncompromising retaliation.
As a counterattack to this assault on society, I am proposing the following:
That the fact of the fraud itself be widely publicized. There are two prongs to this:
We must make clear that the mere publishing of the deceptive campaign materials was already a crime, and should be punished. False advertising is a crime in itself, whether or not it is successful; false political advertising is treason, whether or not it is successful.
However, if the false advertising campaign was indeed successful, that calls for stronger action against it, so we must gather further evidence for what my own experience strongly supports.
We must agitate for punishments against the perpetrators, and if possible, recall of those elected by this means if sufficient evidence is gathered to show beyond a reasonable doubt that their election was a result of this fraud.
If you want to help, what can you do?
If you or anyone you know canvassed your precinct before the election, please send me any info you have or can get that indicates that the fraudulent political ad campaign of NIC or FoNIC was effectual. Ideally, it would be something like what I related above of my own experience. Ultimately, we want to be able to bring forward eyewitnesses. In my case, I have the actual names and address of the two people that NIR/FoNIC had duped.
There is already an appeal to the general public going around for such information. See https://www.idahotribune.org/news/fraud-group-changes-facebook-to-fake-republican-parody-page-day-after-nic-election-saboteurs-fooled-republicans-into-electing-democrat-supported-candidates-in-north-idaho
I will be contacting other news outlets and asking them to run a similar appeal. You might want to do the same. Here is a list of some conservative news outlets.
This should be enough for now.
Remember, the pointer on the Leftist moral compass has the Leftist himself as the north pole. Leftists will lie, cheat and steal anything at all if it serves themselves, and mere words or appeals to fair play have zero effect on them. They WILL do this again in future elections unless forcibly stopped. The recent national midterms proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Thank you and God bless,
