Observation from the Chairman on Election Integrity, We Only Need to Look to Our Southern Border for a Solution!

Altaville, CA...The 2020 Presidential election was a charade and a travesty of justice shaking the very foundation that made America great. Our fair and honest election system of one-person-one-vote, the bedrock of our free Republic was corrupted. The corruption and deception allowed to creep into our once golden national election system has created monumental distrust in our government at the federal, state, and local levels, all of which failed “We the People” and America.






How did this happen? The current corrupt election process began in California and was promoted across America by California’s Secretary of state. The election process is so convoluted with various ways to register and vote that no one can possibly monitor it with any reasonable accuracy. Today's election system has been designed to enable corruption. This monumental failure of our democratic voting system was noticed by countries around the world, cheered by some, such as China and Iran, but recognized by most as a crushing blow to the freest people on earth and to America, the unequivocal leader of the free world.

President Trump received more honest votes than any president in American history. In absolutely no way could Biden have honestly even come close. That’s a fact! The voter turnout of true American patriots was overwhelming and Trump’s numbers shattered expectation. Trump’s remarkable numbers resulted in the unthinkable 3:00 a.m. shut-down in key state election counts to allow perpetrators to re-group and recalculate their devious efforts to assure a Biden victory. This panic move by corrupt individuals involved in the election process provided a shocking view of just how deep the deep-state has become as challenges to the fraudulent elections were met with deaf-ears from the Department of Justice to SCOTUS.

Where do we go from here? A serious course correction is in order because “We the People” are not about to let this malfeasance stand or continue. Interestingly, we need only to look to our southern border and Mexico for a solution. Mexico was mired in election fraud and the fine citizens of Mexico had all but given up on voting in their national elections. In 1996 Mexico revamped its election system. Now all citizens carry Voter Photo ID fingerprinted cards as official identification. The card must be presented when voting and is tied to the ballot used, creating the chain of custody required for honest elections and potential recount litigation. Mexico has stringent absentee ballot procedures and no same-day registration, no ballot harvesting, and no motor-voter registration. If you are caught cheating, you spend time in a Mexican prison. Voting and vote counting in Mexico are monitored by representatives from all parties and is very transparent. Everyone is highly encouraged to vote. You must present yourself at the polling place you are assigned and that polling place should be within walking distance. Elections are always on Sundays.

Now, thanks to Mexico we have a proven working solution to implement because our lazy go-along-to-get-along legislators have grossly failed us and the U.S. Constitution by allowing state Governors, Attorneys General, Secretaries of State, and election officials to supersede them in making election law. Our state legislators can now simply review, revise, and adapt the Mexican election process across our country, state by state, and keep the creeping Federal Government (HR-1 / SB-1) out of the states’ elections business.

May we suggest that while today’s system is under review and in the process of being corrected state by state, we return to simple paper ballots and voting at local neighborhood polling places?

Our vote is the pride and privilege of our citizenry, and it must begin with a strong, transparent and honest Election Integrity Program.

Let’s get to work and “Make California Golden Again”

Ed Langan
Chairman,
CCRCC

          The Pinetree wants us to believe the comments are owned by the poster. But unlike real news networks which regularly correct, and push back whenever the Big Lie is expressed on their outlet, the Pinetree remains silent, supportive of the Big Lie. Ask yourself, when was the last time The Pinetree opened the Soapbox to views other than those of the moderate or extreme right wing? Can't remember can you? That tells you all about The Pinetree's dedication to fair and equitable reporting and representation. Unfortunately, the aspirations here are limited to being a dutiful rag to the traitors of our nation.

      Supposedly, a person could vote several times... how come, that the election office required me to update my signature as it has changed over the years?
      We could all live in this wonderful country and be happy and productive, but NO, the self-proclaimed "God Trump" behaves like a three-year old who didn't get his lollipop and hoards are screaming with him. How did their brains got so corrupted?

    The proof poured in but corrupt politicians, judges etc refused to look at testimonies and documented proof positive. In their corruptness they turned a blind eye to the evil. The proof is out there but the socialist polititicions and media refuses to talk about it. The Biden's are in bed with China and of that there is much proof but again the media will not cover it as they are made out of the same piece of cloth..

Where to start?
Corruption?
Who was the leader of the US at the time of the 2020 election?
For months leading up to the election, this wonderful leader complained that if he lost it's because the election was stolen.
That is not leadership.
The dotards ate it hook, line, and sinker.
Where is all this evidence of fake ballots. From what I've seen there was more corruption by the GOP and their voters.
Mr Langan, you sound like an intelligent man but your bias to any voter not registered for the Republican Party Must be an illegal voter.
Get off your high horse and remove your head from your a$$ and prove these allegations.
Can't do that? Then get off your soapbox and STFU.

When Trump took office the GOP controlled the House, Senate and Presidency, since then the GOP has lost all three. Was that all voter fraud, or could Trump be part of the problem?

    Calaveras County Republican asinine Party.
    You call others delusional that don't believe you yet you can't give any proof that the 2020 election was corrupt.
    What the GOP is trying to do in AZ and GA is the epitome of corrupt behavior.
    Despite having numerous officials in their own Party stating that the ballots collected are valid the GOP still wants to look at millions of ballots.
    The dotards that believe their demigod have no proof to claim corruption. They believe the rants coming from. Trump and his advisors.
    Trump should be made to foot the bill for these recount efforts.
    Like his tax returns, the American people will never see a cent from this crook.
    Lock him up.

      Mexico paying for that wall?
      The Mexican President telling Trump to fu#k off.
      Without Mexican workers our country would come to a standstill.
      Yes, and illegal immigrants should never be able to vote.
      Legal immigrants should not have voting rights either.
      Legal immigrants, those waiting for citizenship or valid visas, are taxed like any average American.
      It's the 1 percent that don't pay their fair share.
      Whether the rich pay taxes of 25%, 30%, or 35% will not matter to their Overall income. They'll still be rich.
      If I make $50k to $75k a year, 25% tax is a big deal.
      What's so hard for the dotards to see. They continue to make excuses for the top 1% because they think that could be them someday.
      Get real. Ain't gonna happen.

How can we actually see the crisis at the Border when our Dictator had forbidden all Media from all federal property housing illegal immigrants?
The same Media mind you, that went after President Trump and housing children in cages, the Media that President Trump gave access to all of those same facilities...the same Media that showed children in cages that the Obama administration had built, and those pictures of children locked in cages? THOSE PICTURES WERE TAKEN WHEN OBAMA WAS PRESIDENT.
Yet the most ignorant people in America, the left cult, won't complain one bit NOW, because they are HYPOCRITES.
Now the Biden dictatorship has been busted for flying illegal immigrant children in the dead of night to other states, not telling the Media, not telling telling even the Governors of those states what they are doing, trying to do it without anyone's knowledge.
You've got to know that when doing things like this, it means this administration is acknowledging that they know everything they have done at our Southern Border has been a complete FUK UP.
Excuse my language, but the stupidity, the lying, the disastrous policies of this administration should be absolutely infuriating to any American who cares for this country and the safety and well being of its citizens.
Biden is a Disgrace to our country, as he was a Disgrace for being a FIVE TIME COWARDLY DRAFT DODGER, AS HIS SON HUNTER, WAS A DISGRACE TO WEARING A UNIFORM OF OUR MILITARY, AND EVEN A DISGRACE AS A FATHER FOR NOT CARING FOR HIS OWN FLESH AND BLOOD AS A FATHER.
LIKE FATHER LIKE SON.

NO WONDER OUR LEO AND OUR MILITARY PERSONNEL HAVE NOT ONE OUNCE OF RESPECT FOR OUR COWARD IN CHIEF.

DISGUSTING...AND THE MOST EMBARRASSING PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

There is no legal proof that the 2020 was compromised. According to 31 judges and triple audits it was a free and fair election. You must only listen to white national movement channel and leaders. You are afraid to admit the devastating history of your past and must deal with it then you can move on. White nationals have hurts all people of color to advance your agenda and you are losing your power. All ethic groups have build this nation, so just realized it and let it go. Power to the People

      From my view Ed Langan is a liar plain And simple.

      Sowing division. And promulgating conspiracy theories about how the system is stacked against his party. Except of course when it isn’t.. then , he is crowing victory and saying we need to protect institutions.

      This is the little kid who threatens to take his ball home on the playground. Seeing no framework or rules except pure political Power to control and to stay in control.
      It’s childish and it’s Mediocrity.

      This is why republicans will have a rough time correcting the course of their political party.

      They have limited vision of the future they want to see. It’s exclusive And amorphous as they will let Their political party assume any shape to grasp onto power.

      See exhibit A : republican caitlyn Jenner leading the party.
      How Many republicans will swallow the pill of hypocrisy and vote for caitlyn Jenner. In spite of the fact that she represents the antithesis of what their party espouses ?

      I have zero problem with Caitlyn Jenner being the Face of the CA Republican Party. I hope Ed Langan gets to meet her and shake her powerful hand while he gazes UP a into her eyes ..
      And sees what a real man looks like.

      Lies and division are not the future.
      But a little humor is ..

Just look at January 6th to see the violent results. And The Pinetree supports it by giving it the public space, paid or not.
