Arizona election audit proceeds after Dems refuse to pay judge-ordered bond

Though Joe Biden has occupied the Oval Office for roughly three months now, efforts to get to the truth about the November presidential election continue apace, and the process of conducting a formal review in one western state has been anything but uneventful.

An audit of the hotly contested 2020 vote tally in Maricopa County, Arizona was poised to continue on Friday following Democrats’ refusal to accede to a judge’s decision declining to halt the process unless they posted $1 million bond, as the Washington Examiner reported, in a development certain to please former President Donald Trump.

The audit – undertaken with the full support of Trump – is set to examine 21 million ballots cast in the county last fall, voting machines, and other materials used in the election. The Arizona Democratic Party and otheres, however, filed suit to stop the process, and Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury ruled that the review would proceed as planned unless a million-dollar bond was provided by the plaintiffs by 5 p.m. Friday to safeguard the auditing firm involved from possible financial losses.

In response, the Democrat plaintiffs declined to front what they called the “laughable” bond amount and slammed the “lack of transparency” they claim surrounded the audit itself, as the Examiner added. Arizona Democratic Party Chair Raquel Teran issued a statement following the ruling, saying, “The Arizona Democratic Party will not risk our supporters’ hard-earned dollars to pay off the [audit firm] for a procedure they are billing Arizona taxpayers to the tune of $150,000.”

Teran did, however, claim that Judge Coury’s ruling was something of a win, in that it requires the state Senate and audit contractors to provide additional disclosures about the recount process, saying, according to azcentral.com, “Today’s temporary restraining order required that the [audit firm] turn over all documents regarding their internal procedures, which should have been made immediately available to the public if this were a transparent or credible process.”

The audit initiative, launched with the backing of Trump, is intended to find what many in the GOP have long alleged were serious integrity issues with the November voting process that caused the state to go into the Democrats’ column. The contentious current situation has restarted an earlier feud between the former president and Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, someone Trump believes has failed to provide sufficient support for the auditing process from the start, according to The Hill.

In a statement issued on Friday, Trump laid bare his frustration over what has occurred, saying, “Why are the Democrats so desperate to stop this Election Fraud from being revealed? That answer is obvious,” adding:

The Governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, has been shockingly of zero help to the State Senate. He wants to ‘pretend’ the election was free and fair. What are he and the Maricopa County Commissioners trying to hide?

The conflict between Trump and Ducey dates back to November, when the latter moved to certify Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential contest. At the time, Trump declared that there was simply “no way” he did not take the state and that “Arizona will not forget what Ducey just did,” as The Hill noted.

Regardless of the final outcome of the audit in Maricopa County, it is important that the process be allowed to fully play out, if for no other reason than to take another small step toward restoring Americans’ flagging faith in our electoral system.

  1. Fight……fight for every inch, nazi dems have forgotten 9-11, Afghanistan, Iraq, dessert storm,
    Vietnam, WWII, WWI, Civil War, War of 1812,
    War against Britain
    Nazi dems have no honor, no respect for our history
    Dems attack us like ravaged dog, anything to win.
    Cut throat pirate tactics. No concern for citizens, like Stalin, Lenin, Mussolini, and Hitler citizens don’t matter. Starve and kill them all….

    Welcome to Biden concentration camp

  2. Too little and too late to help anything. Why waste time on doing these audits. Nothing will change.. we the people already know the rigged deal king biden got.. now we suffer for it..

  3. If the election was “honest” the Democrats have nothing to fear. So why are they fighting so hard to stop the audit. Don’t Democrats want a fair and honest election? I guess not! Fits right into Democrats desire to “control” America and Americans.

  4. My first time being an Election Judge was Obama’s 2nd run in 2012. Several voters told me that their votes were changing on the touchscreens to the Democrats candidates BACK THEN! This is in Cook “crook” County IL. They had to change their votes back several times before their choice stuck. Not only that, but a black woman brought in a group of severely mentally handicapped white men in to vote. They could barely print their own names. They had no clue what they were doing there, it clearly wasn’t their idea to be there. She sat them one by one at the screen and voted in their place. Not a one of them said who they wanted to vote for. Remember, Obama said, tell Putin that I’ll have more flexibility after I’m re elected. Notice that he didn’t say IF, but AFTER, like it was guaranteed!!! Hillary only lost because of the electoral votes. That’s why they flipped and shipped ballots to the SWING states this time. Biden could hide and not campaign, which would have exposed his diminished mental capacity, because they KNEW they were going to RIG the election AGAIN. Multiple document experts said Obama’s submitted birth certificate is FAKE, including one that HIS OWN LAWYERS use. OBAMA should never have occupied the White House either!!!

  5. Good!! There was fraud and doing this American people has to know there was fraud and what we are finding out its leaning toward fraud.

  6. There are several other states that should be doing the same thing, We need to know that our elections are fair and 2020 was not.

  7. What bothered me was our State WA. had us all verify that we voted. Only to receive a notice that they received our ballet. Not that we voted, most of us where I live received the same notice. That they got our ballots but not that it was counted in voting. This hole election was a sham.

    1. Illinois does the same thing. They confirmed that they received it, but they don’t say what they do with it other than hold it until the Election Day!! For all you know, they could be shredding them immediately after receiving them.

  8. hope its not too late for counting ,how long has it been . hope nothing been alterd durinng ! they had plenty of time to mess up things!

  9. I watched all of the Democratic debates last year . . yup all of them, every minute. I did not think Biden was the strongest Democratic candidate . . that’s another story for another day. I would never have questioned, if a different Democrat had won the nomination. Joe was not not as sharp/smart as several of the other Democratic candidates. When Biden did win, I would have bet that he would not win. If you saw one of Joe’s brief interviews in his basement, you would have known in your heart, he was not prepared to be the President. Joe B. has been our President for nearly 4 months . . . it is sad ! When the real “powers” determine when he will step down, do you think Ms. Harris is capable to be our President, the leader of the Free World ?? If you are honest with yourself you know she is not up to it, white or of color ! This above is why I believe the election was fixed. God Bless America! We will succeed!

  10. SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

    1. Marie, great note you posted ! As it worked out my note was posted right below yours. I recently moved from NY to NJ . . I just cannot get away from all these crooked Dems !

      I am a man of Faith and I believe God almighty will show us the way. It takes His power and our worK
      Amen !

    2. Excellent!!! This is the best advice for everyone to heed….thank you…hopefully someone will listen and get these two idiots (biden and harris) out of office and then stick it to Pelosi and Schumer and their gang of thugs!

  11. I have to agree Trump did win and is Our Legal President ..
    The Machines and many people were paid off to run Extra Ballots after the observers left..
    Then we have SCOTUS that failed to listen to any case uphold the Constitution and their Oath of Office thus committing Treason against Our Country by aiding in the cover up of Fraudulent Voting Procedures by various States that failed to get approval from their Legislature which didn’t follow their own State Law’s..

  12. The Democratic Party are bunch of Coummunist-Loving, Devil-Whorshiping bunch of People. I know that this Country needs to get some back-bone, and get GOD back in control of these United States and to Whole World. Ask GOD to take back these USA..

    1. Amen, Harvey! If all of “WE THE PEOPLE” who actually care for America, would read and heed 2 Chronicles 7:14, and pray, I believe our God WILL step in, and fix this mess caused by the demonic Dems and RINOs.

  13. I will never believe Biden actually won this election when he couldn’t get 100 people
    to attend a rally.OAN also called One America News is exposing this fraudulent election
    by establishing Chinese electronic interference causing Trump votes to go to Biden and
    if America will stop watching NBC/ABC/CBS and start seeing the conservative stations
    like OAN and Newsmax they might figure out how this senile old man got to the White’House.

    1. I remember reading a report and seeing a video of Biden’s ‘rally’ in AZ! There was a young woman reporter there to ‘cover’ the story. She started with the fact that there was ‘no one here but the people setting up the cameras, etc.’. As time went on, she then commented on the ‘light traffic’ going by. It got more ‘stressful’ to find something to say as–at last, she had to admit there were fewer than half a dozen people that had arrived for the ‘rally’!! I actually felt ‘bad’ for her as she struggled to find something, anything, to report!! Literally–NO ONE showed up! So-tell me again, how Biden actually ‘won’ this election!!

  14. We are so glad the Republicans stuck together to get this done! Thank you for the Republican Senators in Maricopa Co Az for all the work they are doing. 👍🙏

    1. I agree, Shirley! We need to ‘weed out’ the RINO’s and get together new candidates to run for the (R) party! We need strong supporters to run that will uphold Pres Trump’s ‘America First’ policies! Forget ‘working across the isle’!! Once upon a time, that might have been feasible–no more!! They’ve gone so far ‘left’, they ‘fell over’!! They have been proven untrustworthy. They tell people they plan on doing ‘this or that’ and, before the ‘ink is dry’–they are ‘back-paddling’ on it and doing the opposite. They never put America ‘first’–always we are ‘last’, if we make the list at all!! The Republican Party need to learn to work TOGETHER and stand UP for what is ‘right’ for our country!! They have a reputation for being ‘weak’ and that won’t be tolerated. They only time they showed strength was when Pres Trump was in office!! Once he left–they fell apart!! It isn’t right to put all that on ‘one’ man! We do have a ‘few good men’ in that party. Identify and support them. Then–let’s vote in as many more as we can!!

      1. Never has there been more corruption than in the Democrat Party from 2016 – present day! One bogus interruption in the People’s work after another. No Democrat deserves the salary I paid her or him from my hard-earned tax dollars!!!
        Each and every single one of those no good politicians needs to be impeached right out of office never to be heard from again.
        They’ve stolen the leadership of a once thriving Country, pulled up by the bootstraps under President Trump’s most capable leadership only to be almost destroyed and on life support it by undoing virtually every policy he promised the American people AND KEPT! It’s time for a CLEAN SWEEP of Congress. We Americans need a clean breath of fresh air in the People’s White House, House of Representatives, Senate and throw in some of the Justices in the Supreme Court. The Government is in shambles!

  15. Gloria I am 100% with what you are saying the Dems Cheated to win Now they all need to Punished for what they have done even Biden and Harris Take away there powers make them Pay for what they have done to our ONCE Great Country Clean up the mess in TX and AZ Jail and Payback all it has Cost our Great Country because of there CHILD ideas Pay Back can Be a Bithch

  16. Concerned Americans want only the truth about the 2020 election. A re-examination of what occurred in AZ, and hopefully other states, will result in the truth ….. if things are found out that the election was infiltrated with wrong activity of any type, whether by people or by machine, OR that AZ voting was legitimate, then so be it. The Truth shall make America free ….. What remains hidden in the dark continues to result in bondage to America but challenging what is in the darkness can provide victory because of truth overcoming! God, bless America!

  17. We all know Trump won by a landslide and we know the election was rigged before the voting even started. I knew big problems would crop up when they try to do a recount. Of COURSE the Dems are trying to HIDE their fraudulent activities. They’re about to get caught red-handed and they will do anything to try and stop it.

      1. I call Biden a traitor, not an interloper. But all those who are Biden’s handlers, they are the worst of the worst, traitors to a free America, modeled after what our founding fathers fought for, our freedoms.

      2. I can say it but I don’t want it. The corruption we witnessed in this last election needs to be fully investigated and not pushed aside like it has been. This is a real cause for a march, a peaceful protest of the biggest ever. Biden had the election stolen for him and he even told us it was going to be beforehand. How is this cheating allowed? We are suffering day by day with this thing called Biden in the White House. I am tired of English or Spanish. It is English period! Then I hate getting phone calls with Mexicans who did try to English but the accent it so bad that I cannot understand a word they are saying. I do appreciate those who learn but it doesn’t help in my case. Of course I am 82 and that may be part of my problem.
        No other country I know of goes to so much trouble to speak other languages. You go to their country you speak their language or have someone with you who does.

    1. I still have the picture of Biden himself telling us he had the most exclusive fraud ever set up before the election. I don’t understand how he got away with it. He should be in prison not the White House.

      1. I remember him saying that and could not believe he said it on T.V. for the world to hear. So yes, he knew he won even before the count was in. Bunch of dirty crooks. Old Joe is NOT my President.

          1. But he got away with it is the saddest part. He has no business being in our White House causing so much trouble.

      2. Biden should have been investigated when he said that on TV in the debate. No one ever questioned him on it and the media never said a word. I knew the fix was in that minute he said it on TV. His dementia caused him to say that.

      3. No, he shouldn’t be a president, But remember, he has a room full of his puppet masters. He is missing his brain cells. Bidet has no idea what’s going on!

    2. What happened to the ballets that went to the chicken/turkey farm to be stored. The farm belongs to a rep there in AZ, but the chickens all perished when the barn burst into flames, and killed Millions of chicken, Can you imagine burning to death???????????? Explain why that happened and who did it, It has been a while now and the CRIMINALS SHOULD HAVE THEIR TIME IN COURT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. YES HE DID…. demonrat voters are NOW paying a BIG$$$ for cheating… GAS has increased to a huge tune of 1.85 a gallon and even MORE in the big coastal demonrat run states. Dairy, Meat, Drugs and hundreds of other foods have increased over 30% since Biden, the fraud, took office. Taxing the rich ain’t gonna PAY YOUR BILLS. No group MORE IGNORANT THAN A DEMONRAT.

    4. Anthony Manzo
      I hopefully agree with you . BUT they have had SIX MONTHS to doctor their RESULTS. and I trust Obama’s FASCIST PARTY as much as I trust Nancy and Schumer. Which is a MINUS 100%
