Is Big Tech Censoring the Facts About Voter Fraud Convictions?

Voter Fraud

Last month I wrote a blog for IWF.org discussing two federal criminal prosecutions for voter fraud related to the 2020 election. But within minutes of sharing the piece on social media, I received a notification from LinkedIn stating that my post violated their policies. Are Americans receiving the full facts, or are social media censors making knee-jerk cancellations whenever they see the word “fraud”?

I appealed the decision, noting that the convictions for fraud that I wrote about in my piece were documented by the U.S. Department of Justice. The press releases are on the federal government’s website here and here. Nevertheless, my appeal was rejected out of hand. Notably, I took another attempt at the LinkedIn feature and reposted the same blog, but using the terminology “voter suppression” of voters who cast ballots by mail. This time, there was no complaint or rejection. Same article, same information — voter fraud by federal postal workers, but using language often employed by the left. 

Neither my blog nor the excerpt I shared on Linkedin (“In federal mail ballot voter fraud prosecutions from the 2020 election, the perpetrators were U.S. Postal Service employees”) ever challenged the results of the 2020 presidential election. It pointed out results of federal convictions related to that election — and one was even completed during the Biden administration.

The directive to pursue those claims came from former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr. Contrary to the leftist claim that this directive interfered with the 2020 election, the action limited the federal government’s interference — by fraud and abuse of its own employees — in elections. The Biden administration, by contrast, has issued an executive order to federal employees far more involved in the 2022 election, but without the directives to manage and oversee their behavior from interference and prosecute what they define as “election misinformation.”

Our system is broken if information backed up by research is not allowed to be shared. The people need to have knowledge of all the facts in order to inform effective policy decisions and elect government officials who make those decisions with their consent. If the information is only one-sided, the decisions are poorly informed.

For years, the left has denied that election fraud occurs and tries to minimize its occurrence and impact. Two decades ago, they circulated the talking point that election fraud is a “solution without a problem” until the Republican National Lawyers Association and the Heritage Foundation posted a database of state and local criminal convictions.

Two convictions hardly challenge the results of the presidential election where there is a margin of difference in the hundreds of thousands, but a few votes can change the results of local elections. The inconvenient truth is that these convictions rebut the left’s “solution without a problem” talking point, but the phrase is still being regurgitated about voter fraud by leftist advocates in Texas and Georgia

Furthermore, unprosecuted voter fraud is a concession few, if any prosecutors, want to admit. Which prosecutor will apologize for his or her failure to prosecute crimes?

Fortunately, there are nonpartisan prosecutors willing to pursue these cases, and the state legislatures are trying to develop new solutions to address loopholes for those who wish to gain power without the consent of the people. In 2021, Texas and Florida formed their own versions of the Department of Justice’s Election Crimes Branch to pursue voter fraud claims at the state and local levels.

There is a dire need to examine the facts and encourage more civil and productive conversation regarding elections. Read on after a headline. My argument actually is that voter fraud is a form of voter suppression. The goal is not to stop thinking and speaking about elections, but to encourage more thorough and nuanced discussion. Don’t tune out information that might not fit your preconceived notions. Let’s stop regurgitating partisan talking points to our own echo chambers and canceling out those who want to learn more. Otherwise, you’re part of the problem, instead of the solution.

I think the conspiracy theory put forth by Alex Jones should be a lesson to all. He admitted in court that this was not a hoax after many years & many people hurt by his media rants. I think in the future, all of the media will stop people from spreading false stories.

Big Tech subscribes to the Will Rogers adage… You can fool some people ALL of the time, and ALL people SOME of the time, and when you do they’re in office for at least two to six years.
Vote ALL incumbents O-U-T !!!!!

They need to do away with mail in ballots, WHO makes sure that the ballot is sent to LEGAL citizens and not to illegal aliens since they can get driver’s licenses in most states?? I know Michigan sent ballots to everyone as someone I know had 4 extra ballots for people that had lived at that address before, but in one case not for at least 8-9 years, and 4 for the other 2. They were tossed in the trash, BUT how many were filled in and mailed???

Linkedin did the same thing to me years ago. They were wrong then and wrong today for censoring factual information. So like I’ve done with Facebook and so many other woke companies, I deleted my account with them forever.

The Left keeps saying that voter fraud is not a problem but by their constant and vocal opposition to voter integrity show that there is a problem.

I was booted off Twitter for posting a NY Times article entitled “Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amidst Uranium One Deal” in 2016. I was booted from commenting on You Tube videos for posting about Hunter Biden’s computer in 2020. So YES… they do!

When congressional leaders, states congress, MSM, and Big Techs go beyond measures to silence the voices of the American peoples, then it’s about time we speak about corrupting our elections. No IDs, but yet identification is required to rent a car, purchase spirits (alcohols), hotels, etc., etc., but the most important right to vote should be carelessly shouted aways by progressives, liberals, and those willing to destroy our Republic and its Constitution, and Bill of Rights.

Voter fraud? You mean election fraud, you know the kind that tips the scales to the left where no one you know actually voted for that person or issue. How would we know how long have we been deceived? We’re supposed to just trust all those honest election officials. Stalin once said it’s not the voters who determine an election outcome it’s the counters. If these same people who tabulate our votes were your bank tellers, you would watch them more closely.

Why would Democrats want the American people to be informed? They would be out of office in a minute.

LInkedin will go away like the so called major news mediums, just like Kari Lake stated about the condition of CNN a few days ago about CNN Plus. Laugh! Try Truthsocial. Just an idea if your not there yet. Or, OAN, Briebart or Rumble or plenty of great places with real journalism. Thanks for all that you folks are doing. Brand new here.

With Twitter now under new ownership we’ll see if free speech is allowed again on that liberal bastion of political bias. Denials of a ‘Deep State’ faction permanently controlling/owning federal government and liberal mainstream media are ridiculous when it’s obvious only one political viewpoint is being suppressed, ridiculed, and Truth is twisted beyond recognition. Even FBI and Department of Justice are in on the odious scheme.

LinkedIn is just one of the big tech cartel that see themselves as part of the ruling class over the worthless masses that must be herded like farm animals. Will salvation be nuclear strikes on our evil and infested major cities, when the appeasement of China, showing weakness, will trigger a Pearl Harbor like nuclear strike on the US in Asia, followed by a full on nuclear war.
