FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEDECEMBER 28, 2020PA Lawmakers: Numbers Don’t Add Up, Certification of Presidential Results Premature and In Error HARRISBURG – A group of state lawmakers performing extensive analysis of election data today revealed troubling discrepancies between the numbers of total votes counted and total number of voters who voted in the 2020 General Election, and as a result are questioning how the results of the presidential election could possibly have been certified by Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar and Governor Tom Wolf. These findings are in addition to prior concerns regarding actions by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the Secretary, and others impacting the conduct of the election. A comparison of official county election results to the total number of voters who voted on November 3, 2020 as recorded by the Department of State shows that 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast, while DoS/SURE system records indicate that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted. Among the 6,962,607 total ballots cast, 6,931,060 total votes were counted in the presidential race, including all three candidates on the ballot and write-in candidates. The difference of 202,377 more votes cast than voters voting, together with the 31,547 over- and under-votes in the presidential race, adds up to an alarming discrepancy of 170,830 votes, which is more than twice the reported statewide difference between the two major candidates for President of the United States. On November 24, 2020, Boockvar certified election results, and Wolf issued a certificate of ascertainment of presidential electors, stating that Vice President Joe Biden received 80,555 more votes than President Donald Trump. The lawmakers issued the following statement in response to their findings:“We were already concerned with the actions of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the Executive branch, and election officials in certain counties contravening and undermining the Pennsylvania Election Code by eliminating signature verification, postmarks, and due dates while allowing the proliferation of drop boxes with questionable security measures and the unauthorized curing of ballots, as well as the questionable treatment of poll watchers, all of which created wholesale opportunities for irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.”“ However, we are now seeing discrepancies on the retail level which raise even more troubling questions regarding irregularities in the election returns. These findings call into question the accuracy of the SURE system, consistency in the application of the Pennsylvania Election Code from county to county, and the competency of those charged with oversight of elections in our Commonwealth. “These numbers just don’t add up, and the alleged certification of Pennsylvania’s presidential election results was absolutely premature, unconfirmed, and in error.” State Representative Frank Ryan indicated that state legislators sponsoring and participating in this analysis were himself, Rep. Russ Diamond, Rep. Dave Zimmerman, Rep. Barb Gleim, Rep. Stephanie Borowicz, Rep. Dan Moul, Rep. Paul Schemel, Rep. Dawn Keefer, Rep. Eric Nelson, Rep. Mike Jones, Rep. Rob Kauffman, Rep. David Maloney, Rep. David Rowe, Rep. Kathy Rapp, Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, Rep. Jim Cox and Rep Brett Miller.
2 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi[a] from the east came to Jerusalem 2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
3 When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. 5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written:
6 “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
who will shepherd my people Israel.’[b]”
7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”
9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.
“The watchmen have to pay very close attention and be greatly discerning while surveying the horizon. He has to know when the rain or a windstorm is coming, and he has to discern the difference between a small threat and an army’s coming to destroy the people of God.
The Lord tell Ezekiel to get up on te wall and keep watch, and He’s telling us to do the same. Then when you see the enemy advancing, when you see the problem that you already discerned was coming, you’ll blow the trumpet and warn your people.”
“Jesus then tells us that in the last days, ‘many shall be offended.’ Isn’t to one of the key identifying factors of the generation we’re living in? People can suddenly claim to be offended by anything at any time, even if it’s free speech opinion spoken in a constructive way. People are offended by statues of people that liberated us. They’re even offended by people and institutions that have helped our nation survive and thrive.” ~ Pastor Greg Locke
