I have been ignoring the media disinformation related to Election 2020. Not only is it quite certain that President Donald Trump won in a landslide, it is equally certain that hundreds of state officials will soon be facing jail time for felonies that can be proven.
I thought today to simply throw up several headlines that are clearly false, repeating my view that all these media owners, editors, and authors are facing imminent criminal legal liability including arrest without bail.
Some military voters are concerned they have been thrust into the center of unsubstantiated fraud claims by President Donald Trump’s campaign that several thousand people may have improperly voted in Nevada.
There is no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election despite Trump’s claims. Election officials from both political parties have stated publicly that the election went well and international observers confirmed there were no serious irregularities that elected Democrat Joe Biden the next president.
The infamous term “gerrymandering” originates from an 1812 incident in Massachusetts where Governor Elbridge Gerry re-drew district lines to benefit his political party. The oddly-drawn district resembled the shape of a mythical salamander, which, combined with his last name was branded “Gerrymander.” Since then, gerrymandering has plagued the U.S. redistricting process at every turn.
In this blog, we will examine the long and fraught history of gerrymandering from basic redistricting laws, to the Civil Rights Act of 1965, and possible solutions to create a fair redistricting process to improve democracy.

The map above shows what the 2020 US Presidential Election results would have been if votes not cast for Biden, Trump or one of the third party candidates had gone to fictional “Did Not Vote” candidate.
Disclaimer: This map is based on data up to November 11th, 2020. Votes are still being counted so totals are likely to change.
Unlike in 2016, when “Did Not Vote” would have won a landslide 471 electoral college votes, in 2020 it would have only eked out a slim victory with 278. (270 are required to win)
Twitter says it labeled 0.2% of all election-related tweets as disputed.
Twitter said on Thursday that it had labeled as disputed 300,000 tweets related to the presidential election, or 0.2 percent of the total on the subject, even as some users continued sharing misleading information about the outcome.
The disclosure made Twitter the first major social media platform to publicly evaluate its performance during the 2020 election. Its revelations followed intense criticism by President Trump and other Republicans, who have said Twitter’s fact-checking efforts silenced conservative voices.
As ballots continue to be counted across the country, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has said he’s offering up to a $1 million reward for evidence of voter fraud in the 2020 elections.
