Vote Fraud in Heavily Democratic Precincts in Detroit in 2016

The Detroit News indicates that President Trump's narrow win in Michigan was much closer than it should have been:

Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of The Detroit News.Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an audit by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday

Vote fraud in California: With no ID required, hundreds of skid row people forge someone else's name on ballot

So possibly Hillary Clinton didn't win the popular vote by as many votes as people think. Democrats likely shouldn't have done as well this year in California as the vote count indicates. The quote below is from an article that was in the Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union. If the Democrat District Attorney in Los Angeles refers to this in the hundreds, it is likely many more.
A forged signature swapped for $1 — or sometimes a cigarette. The crude exchange played out hundreds of times on L.A.’s skid row during the 2016 election cycle and again this year, prosecutors said Tuesday as they announced criminal charges against nine people accused in a fraud scheme. Using cash and cigarettes as lures, the defendants approached homeless people on skid row and asked them to forge signatures on state ballot measure petitions and voter registration forms, the district attorney’s office said. The defendants — some of whom were scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday — face several criminal charges, including circulating a petition with fake names, voter fraud and registering a fictitious person. . . .

Do you wonder about the media's claims that there is no reason for Trump to send troops to the border if the Caravan won't be here for a while?




For all the badgering that the media has done over why it must be politics that Trump has put the troops on the border before the Caravan actually arrived (see above video), the New York Post provides the obvious explanation:
As three separate migrant caravans slowly made their way north through Mexico on Saturdaynewly arrived US troops worked to lay a barbed-wire fence along the Texas side of the Rio Grande. The soldiers worked with US Customs and Border Patrol officers to lay about 1,000 feet of fencing along the river, the Defense Department said. The makeshift barrier was installed underneath the McAllen-Hidalgo International Bridge, which crosses into Mexico. The overpass is in the small town of Hidalgo, about 250 miles south of San Antonio. . . .They are setting up fencing at the border.
