Bribing For Biden

After hundreds of sworn affidavits about Election Day oddities and statistical improbabilities, not surprisingly, a majority of Republicans believe the 2020 election was neither free nor fair.

However, a sizable percentage of Democrats don't think Joe Biden won fair and square either.

So, Republicans and Democrats may not be surprised that illegal money-for-votes raffles were conducted in several states in the 2020 election---bribing for Biden.

Be informed, not misled.

Rasmussen Survey has found that 75% of Republicans believe the 2020 election was neither free nor fair. 

Not surprising given the evidence.

However, Rasmussen also found that 30% of Democrats agree---so who cares, "we won."

The survey also found that 39% of unaffiliated voters also believe the election was corrupted---and 47% of all voters agree.

Having seen the inside of some of the most corrupt third world countries as a Christian missionary, I never thought I'd see the day when the greatest nation in the history of the world would be touched by that level of corruption.

Introducing "Bribing for Biden."

A number of states---including Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, Washington, Idaho, Texas, and Ohio-- held raffles giving away money and gifts in return for people voting and turning their ballot in at the appropriate place.

But let's start with Nevada.

How the bribe works.

Isn't paying people to vote---or not to vote illegal?

Yes. Two distinct sections impose fines and prison sentences for "whoever makes or offers to make an expenditure to any person, either to vote or withhold his vote." 

The Nevada Native Vote Project posted photos on Facebook on Election Day of smiling voters holding $25 gift cards after handing over their ballots.

The posts have since been deleted but not before they were archived. The removal probably had something to do with the US criminal code linked above.

Offering gift cards for ballots was not the only way the Nevada Native Vote Project enticed people to vote. In a video that was still up on Facebook as lately as November 24, Bethany Sam, the public relations officer for the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony, urged people to come out and vote by offering "some extra swag that we can give out." 

She says:

"We have twenty-five $25 gift cards to raffle off so that's a lot of money in cash here. We also have four $100 gift cards to give away, so again you want to make sure to get out here and vote. And then, we have four $250 gift cards to raffle. And our grand prize is going to be a $500 Visa gift card to the person or native voters who come out early this week early voting."

Then she added, "Voters only need send a photo of themselves at the polling place to enter."

Another scrubbed video showed Sam promoting a swag giveaway in front of a Biden-Harris bus sometime before the end of Nevada's early voting period on October 30.

Make no mistake. It wasn't merely about getting people to vote---it was about getting people to vote for "Biden-Harris."

Sam, on the video, tells the people that the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony endorses the Biden-Harris ticket.

In one video she turns the camera to Arlan Melendez, chairman of the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony that describes itself as a "sovereign Indian nation" with a Tribal Council that "carries the same unique powers and duties of any city council, county commission, or legislative government across the United States."

Now, I grew up in Central Washington very near the Yakima Indian Reservation, and am fully aware that the various tribes operate as "sovereign nations," but is it legal to bribe for votes in a federal United States presidential election?

Logan Churchwell, communications director with the Public Interest Legal Foundation, says, "Vote buying is a federal crime."

But he says: "Whether FBI agents and the DOJ Election Crimes office is willing to involve itself is a separate matter altogether."

Does it matter what a few voters in the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony do on their own reservation? 

Of course it does. There are 60,000 registered Native Indian voters in Nevada. The election was decided for Biden by about 30,000 votes.

The same bribery campaign was used in a number of other states, including Washington State.

A video from Washington shows a "Native vote team" in front of a Biden sign promoting a voter raffle for a $200 gift card and other prizes. A Facebook post from the same group said the raffle included two dozen $25 gas cards.

Lummi Native Vote 2020, the group promoting the raffles, posted a photo of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on its web page on Nov. 7 which read, "We did it."

The web page comment has been removed.

Washington's Secretary of State has not responded to inquiries by reporters investigating this issue.

Nor have any of the other states responded to inquiries.

The Nez Perce tribe in Idaho were doing the same thing, but their gift cards were for more money, ranging from $50 to $500 and including an Apple iPad for people who cast an absentee ballot, voted, or registered to vote.

Neither the tribe nor the Idaho Elections Division responded to questions by conservative reporters.

As we walk through this present spiritual darkness---this web of deception and corruption- we must keep our eyes and heart focused on the Truth Himself and on God's Word.

I'm reminded of Proverbs 10:9: 

"He who walks with integrity walks securely; But he who perverts his ways will become known."

And Proverbs 11:3:

"The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of the transgressors shall destroy them."

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Faithful. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
