100 percent fed up – Dr. Becky Behrends does a brilliant fact-check on one of Michigan’s best Patriots, Clara Hendrickson, a left-leaning Detroit Free Press “fact-checker” who makes a living by defaming individuals or groups who challenge the integrity of her team. earns
And now, it’s time to check the “so-called” facts, especially Clara Hendrickson of the Detroit Free Press…
Hendrickson published a piece in the Detroit Free Press on July 27, 2022, titled, “Detroit prepares for first statewide election since finding itself in spotlight in 2020”. In the piece, he specifically mentions me (Becky Behrendz) belonging to the Michigan Citizens for Election Integrity or MC4EI group, which has “spread misinformation about the 2020 election.”
Let’s address the misinformation that Hendrickson and the Detroit Free Press are spreading.
popular: Who is John Doe?… The mysterious, anonymous power broker is trying to prevent Gateway Pundit from accessing the Epstein client list.
As Paul Harvey used to say: “The rest is the story.”
He told the story of Edith Le-Pen, a poll worker in the 2020 election, who claimed she had to grab a letter opener when a Republican observer demanded she stop the count. He claimed the observer was “just belligerent” and was not sure if he was armed. He was thankful he didn’t have to use a letter opener.
A GOP colleague, Janice Herman, disagrees with that interpretation. He said in an affidavit (page 47): “I saw a woman using a letter opener as a weapon to ensure that an observer was not close enough to see what she was doing when she duplicated the ballot. had been Herman claims he has several other witnesses who saw it.
“When GOP challengers were being ignored in their challenges by illegal and fraudulent election inspector behavior and election supervisors refusing to enter their challenges in the log book, what were they supposed to do? If They raised their voices to attract attention (heaven forbid, such aggressiveness!), so they were considered belligerent and threatening. Who fired a potential weapon? Not Republicans, but trusted Democrat poll workers! Come on. Let’s be clear!! Detroit election officials later claimed the GOP challengers were “sour grapes” when their boy Trump lost because they had not filed a challenge during the election! A clever bit of deception that the mainstream media swallowed hook, line and sinker.
As Ben Franklin once said, “Tricks and deceit are the practice of fools who have not brains enough to be honest.”
If Hendrickson were a legitimate investigative journalist, she would have presented both sides of the story and let the public draw its own conclusions. As Beckett Adams of the National Journalism Center once said in an LA Times article:
“News reporters need to focus on providing audiences with only the facts, rather than swaying them in the direction of a preferred point of view. This means reporting fairly and objectively on both sides of the debate and for themselves. Respecting the audience for interpreting and analyzing information. They are not children. If newsrooms want to speak strongly on certain issues, they always have an opinion section.
Hendrickson claimed there was a flood of challenges in the counting room in Detroit in 2020 who “misunderstood standard procedures for fraud while other people outside the room beat on the windows.” It would be laughable indeed if it weren’t such a serious matter that the press can be so biased and malicious in presenting misleading information as “facts” to the public.
There was nothing “standard” about such practices as:
- Judge ballots rejected by tabulators without Republicans present, using inflated numbers to exclude certified Republican challengers.
- Denying re-admission to GOP challengers trying to return from a lunch break while allowing Democrats to hold lunch and meetings in or adjacent to the counting board room.
- Acceptance of ballots by thousands of people who do not appear in electronic poll books or supplementary lists
- Allowing late-night ballots to be dropped several hours after the polls closed (Oakland County, Michigan’s second largest, ended up on its counting boards around 9 p.m. What an excuse for Wayne County is?)
- failing to prevent tabulator operators from rerunning ballot batches without zeroing the count, failing to provide challengers with meaningful access to view the election inspectors’ computer screens, thereby refusing to comply with the court’s decision in which it was determined.
- Failing to provide challengers with meaningful access to view election inspectors’ computer screens, thereby refusing to comply with the court’s ruling that stipulated it.
- Using inflated numbers to oust certified Republican challengers.
These are some of the substandard, fraudulent, illegal, and unlawful behaviors that occurred at the TCF Center in the Detroit 2020 general election. Many more examples can be given.
And push on Windows? As GOP challengers were harassed, kicked out and fired, and pizza boxes were taped to windows, common sense would tell you that this was no way to inspire confidence or trust in Republicans, the public. give up Their anger and rage was perfectly justified.
Hendrickson presents only one side of the events at the TCF center, in which hard-working election observers were so abused, threatened and intimidated by GOP challengers, when in fact, it was the GOP election challengers who was being intimidated and threatened. These challengers filed more than 200 affidavits attesting that the abuse came from Democrats and was so blatant as to be unbelievable to many Republicans who had not been exposed to such treatment before. Classic gaslighting manipulation technique – blame others for behaviors that include themselves.
As for the so-called “fake certificates of electors” that potentially existed to deliver states’ Electoral College votes to Trump, this is yet another bogus Democrat talking point for any Trump supporters to go after. It’s their way of saying, “Don’t even think about trying that again, or we’ll go after you with our armed law enforcement and intelligence agencies.” How to silence your opposition from the Chinese Communist playbook. Choosing an alternate slate of voters is not unheard of and has never been considered “fraud” in the past. See what happened in Hawaii in the 1960 Nixon vs. Kennedy presidential election.
This Free Press reporter also said, “The process is set and methodical. There are many eyes watching the belt at every step. It’s a system that will both reduce fraudulent claims in 2020, but any intervention officials say they are prepared to face this year. Watching the belt at every step??? Except for Republican challengers, who were often barred from watching and watching. And except for the total lack of bilateral involvement and a chain of custody in transferring the ballots to the TCF center for counting. But Democrats couldn’t be bothered with these “minor details.”
As for lawsuits claiming a stolen election “failed in court,” it’s an attempt to convince the public that Trump’s position must, therefore, be bogus and completely without merit. Not surprisingly, these lawsuits did not get their day in court. In fact, most of them never received an “evidence hearing.” What else would we expect when liberal judges dominate the judiciary at all levels? For example, if one looks at the federal circuit court system, one might conclude that Democrat judges serve as reliable liberals, but Republican judges do not always equate to reliable conservatives. Over time, a certain percentage of these Republican judges move to the left. Therefore, grassroots conservatives cannot rely on a judge with an R in front of his name to uphold the rule of law rather than his ideological leanings.
And so it goes. Ms. Hendrickson is the only town crier parroting the term “choice-denial” to those questioning the 2020 election.
George Orwell had it right when he said:
“(True) journalism is printing what nobody else wants to print: everything else is public relations.”
It appears the parrots and lemmings are back in full force, marching to the beat of legacy media. remember
Definition of legacy media? Admittedly, these are old or traditional media news outlets that believe they are the final word on any subject. They are centralized media organizations. Old and outdated and manipulated by liberals and leftists for the purpose of “public relations”, which is code for persuading the public to their point of view.
And for anyone who resists, again, Orwell had a comment on this: “Truth, this is the new hate speech. In a time of global deception, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”
Don’t expect the truth from the Detroit Free Press or its tax-payer subsidized minions who claim to be honest reporters and journalists.
