(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) A familiar story played out in two states bordering California, where left-wing activists, labor unions and Mafia may have helped swing the Senate back into Democratic control using a break-down of ballot scanners in Phoenix, Arizona, and a flood of last-minute mail-in ballots in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In both cases, election officials have stalled their vote-tallying for several days since the Nov. 8 election, creating a nebulous situation in which it was unclear whether ballots were secure and were being properly handled.
Despite Nevada’s GOP senatorial candidate, Adam Laxalt, having expressed confidence earlier in the week that it was numerically impossible for incumbent Democrat Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto to make up the difference in the remaining ballots, the mail-in voting continued to break roughly two to one in her favor, prompting media outlets to declare Laxalt’s defeat late Saturday.
Neither Laxalt nor Arizona candidate Blake Masters seemed poised to concede their races immediately, with Masters insisting that all ballots be counted after media declared his defeat to incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly.
“For my people who knocked doors in the 115 degree heat, and for the million+ Arizonans who put their faith in me, we are going to make sure that every legal vote is counted, Masters said in a statement Saturday via Twitter. “If, at the end, Senator Kelly has more of them than I do, then I will congratulate him on a hard-fought victory. But voters decide, not the media; let’s count the votes.”

Nonetheless, it remained to be seen whether powerful Republicans such as Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell—who notably snubbed Masters during the campaign—and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel would do anything to assist the candidates in their future challenges.
The Arizona gubernatorial race between GOP candidate Kari Lake and incumbent Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs—who refused to recuse herself from overseeing the election—also seemed on the verge of being reversed in Hobbs’s favor.
Media appeared thoroughly disinterested in covering the scandals in Maricopa and Clark counties—both of which contain the vast majority of residents in their two states, respectively, thereby disfranchising voters in other parts of the state by failing to properly administer their elections.
Headline USA reached out to Mary Jo Pitzl, a reporter for the Arizona Republic, who spread disinformation about her state’s secretary of state race to replace Hobbs with another Democrat shill, ensuring that its election-integrity issues remain intact—and likely worsen—ahead of the 2024 election.
Pitzl sympathetically reported that Democrat Adrian Fontes, who will now be in charge of overseeing the state elections, had outright denied any suspicious circumstances in the current races.
“We don’t have any major issues in our election system,” he claimed, despite the empirical evidence to the contrary. “This is all made-up problems, it’s part of the Big Lie.”
When pressed on whether she would follow up with Fontes about the situation in Maricopa County, the reporter herself tipped her hand, revealing that she, too, was an election-fraud denier.
“If you’re talking about the tabulators that wouldn’t take ballots on Tuesday in Maricopa County, that issue was remedied and voters were given alternatives to vote. Ie: the weird-sounding Door 3 to deposit their ballot,” Pitzl obtusely claimed in an email to Headline USA.
“Notably, when the Republicans went to court Tuesday evening to attempt to extend voting hours, they offered no evidence that anyone was denied the ability to vote,” she continued, falsely conflating the court’s failure to remedy the matter with objective facts, even though it would have been impossible for Republicans to obtain the necessary evidence while ballots were still being counted and collected on Election Day.
Among the revelations that Democrats subsequently boasted about following the 2020 race was the fact that a Los Angeles-based labor union had sent paid activists into the blue areas of the state to assist in collecting and “curing” ballots, thus helping deliver the presidential election to Democrat Joe Biden by a miniscule margin of around 10,000 votes.
In the current race, printing issues with the ballot scanners impacted between 20% and 30% of the voting centers in largely red parts of Maricopa, and were estimated to have affected roughly 7% of the overall vote, likely suppressing GOP turnout in what was anticipated to be a red-wave election.
The two stolen races both follow suspicious circumstances in the Pennsylvania senatorial election, which was declared on election night for cognitively impaired stroke victim John Fetterman, the state’s current lietenant governor.
Fetterman’s margin of victory was padded with mail-in ballots sent out weeks before a late-October debate revealed the full scope of his disabilities, likely disqualifying him in the minds of many from the world’s once-greatest deliberative body.
His win, already conceded by GOP rival Mehmet Oz, also followed reports that Pennsylvania’s acting secretary of state, Leigh Chapman, had mailed out more than a quarter-million ballots to unverified voters.
As GOP trust and optimism come to a screeching halt, a final race in Georgia, to be decided by a Dec. 6 runoff, will potentially give Democrats a 51st Senate seat. That race, between incumbent Raphael Warnock and GOP challenger Herschel Walker, is likely to be stolen in Fulton County, as was the 2020 election in the state.
With the extra seat, Democrats could resurrect their hopes of eliminating the filibuster, allowing them to codify at the federal level the same laws that facilitated cheating in the midterm elections, provided they also are able to secure a majority in the U.S. House.
Although Republicans are projected to gain the House majority, at least 21 seats remain to be declared—including several pending the outcome of more mail-in ballots in California, a state where controversial ballot-harvesting is permitted. The GOP needs at least 7 more seats to flip the House.
Regardless of the House outcome, the Senate steal likely puts a target on the back of 74-year-old conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who has become a bane in the Left’s existence since the court tipped more conservative following the 2020 passing of liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
In the aftermath of the court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade earlier this year, far-left activists targeted several of the conservative justices, rioting outside their homes and, in the case of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, staging at least one assassination attempt.
