Executive Summary – The Art of the Steal

The Democrat Party and its political operatives, with the unwitting aid of “useful idiots” from the Republican Party, stole the presidential election from Donald J. Trump.

The Democrat Party used a two-pronged Grand “Stuff the Ballot Box” Strategy to flood six key battleground states – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – with enough illegal absentee and mail-in ballots to turn a decisive Trump victory into a narrow and
illegitimate Biden alleged “win.”

Prong One dramatically INCREASED the amount of absentee and mail-in ballots in the battleground states. Prong Two dramatically DECREASED the level of scrutiny of such ballots – effectively taking the election “cops” off the beat. This pincer movement resulted in a FLOOD of illegal ballots into the battleground states more than sufficient to tip the scales from a decisive legal win by President Trump to a narrow and illegitimate alleged “victory” by Joe Biden.

The Democrat Party relied primarily on legal means such as legislative and rule changes at the state level to implement its Grand Strategy and thereby achieve its illegal outcome. However, at times, political operatives advancing the Democrat Party’s Grand Strategy also bent, and sometimes broke, the laws and rules of that which is most sacred to our American public – our election system.

Key methods used by the Democrat Party to strategically game America’s presidential election included changes in the law approved by State Legislatures; rule changes and new guidance initiated by Secretaries of State or other election officials; court rulings and interventions; and the
aggressive use of so-called “public-private partnerships” to commandeer and manipulate the election process in key Democrat strongholds such as Wayne County, Michigan and Dane County, Wisconsin.

Prong One of the Democrat Party’s Grand Strategy used seven basic gambits to dramatically INCREASE the flood of absentee and mail-in ballots: relaxing mail-in and absentee ballot rules; sending absentee or mail-in ballots or applications for such ballots to every voter (universal
mailing); increasing both the legal and illegal use of drop boxes; ballot harvesting; and the use of corrupted voting machines.

Prong Two of the Democrat Party’s Grand Strategy used five additional gambits to dramatically DECREASE the level of scrutiny of the new flood of absentee and mail-in ballots into the battleground states: relaxation of ID verification; reduced signature matching requirements; illegally counting naked ballots to increase ballot curing – both legal and illegal; and reduced poll watching and observing.

Democrat Party operatives frequently hid behind the shield of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus and resultant pandemic to further their goals of boosting the absentee and mail-in ballot counts in the key battleground states.

The practical result of the Democrat Party’s two-pronged Grand “Stuff the Ballot Box” Strategy was to flood the six key battleground states with enough illegal absentee and mail-in ballots to turn a decisive Trump victory into a narrow alleged Biden “victory.” Key political operatives assisting
the Democrat Party included Wall Street oligarch George Soros, Silicon Valley oligarch and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Marc Elias, former Hillary Clinton Campaign General Counsel and one of the alleged architects and financial conduits for Fusion GPS and the RussiaHoax designed to topple a duly-elected President.

Soros money helped fund efforts to change election laws and rules through instruments such as referenda. Soros and his network of organizations such as the political action committee “Secretary of State Project” also helped to elect puppet Secretaries of State in Michigan (Jocelyn Benson) and
Pennsylvania (Kathy Boockvar) who would play instrumental roles in bending or breaking election rules and thereby advancing the Grand “Stuff the Ballot Box” Strategy. Zuckerberg money – nearly half a billion dollars – helped engineer what was effectively a hostile Democrat Party “publicprivate
partnership” takeover of what should otherwise be a nonpartisan election process in key Democrat strongholds such as Wayne County, Michigan and Dane County, Wisconsin.

Useful idiots for the Democrat Party included Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp and Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger who entered into a Consent Decree that dramatically INCREASED the number of absentee and mail-in ballots while dramatically DECREASING the rejection rate of such ballots. Republican state legislators who voted for thebills that would help the Democrats advance its Grand Strategy likewise were unwitting dupes.

By implementing its Grand “Stuff the Ballot Box” Strategy, the Democrat Party and its political operatives have strategically gamed one of the most sacred elements of American democracy, our election system. This was brass knuckle politics played at the highest level which has delivered a
brutal punch to the nose of the American people and a vicious kick to the groin of American democracy.

That the Democrat Party and its operatives have, up to this point, gotten away with their Immaculate Deception and Art of the Steal, represents a signal failure of the media, Republican state legislators, other Republican government officials across the battleground states, the US Congress, and our judicial branch of government at both the state and federal levels.

Volumes 1 and 2 of the Navarro Report – The Immaculate Deception and The Art of the Steal – together make the strong case for a full investigation of the election irregularities and strategic gaming of our political process that in all likelihood have led to a stolen presidential election. Any
such investigation must begin immediately as this nation simply cannot risk the inauguration of a president who will be perceived by a large segment of the American people as illegitimate.

Introduction

Volume 1 of The Navarro Report, The Immaculate Deception, revealed a coordinated Democrat Party strategy to steal the 2020 Presidential Election. That strategy was to stuff ballot boxes with illegal absentee and mail-in ballots across six battleground states – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan,
Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

As illustrated in Figure One, this Democrat gaming of our political process was manifested by six types of election irregularities observed across the battleground states. These irregularities included outright voter fraud, ballot mishandling, due process fouls, violations of the 14thamendment’s Equal Protection clause, voting machine irregularities, and statistical anomalies.

By exploiting these election irregularities – by bending, and at times breaking, the law or election rules – the Democrat Party thereby illicitly transformed substantial Trump leads into alleged narrow Biden leads across each of the battleground states. However, as The Immaculate Deception
documented, these alleged Biden “victory margins” are dwarfed by the number of potentially illegal ballots in every single battleground state as illustrated in Columns 7 and 8 of Figure One above.

For example, the alleged Biden “victory margin” is less than 12,000 votes in Arizona, while the number of potentially illegal ballots was is than 10 times that. In Georgia, the alleged Biden “victory margin” is a mere 12,670 votes, yet the number of ballots in question is more than 400,000.

In the wake of the release of the Navarro Report on December 17, 2020, I received numerous requests to explain just exactly how the Democrat Party and its operatives managed to pull off its Immaculate Deception. That is the purpose of Volume 2 of the Navarro Report, The Art of the Steal.

The Art of the Steal takes a more granular look at the Democrats’ Grand “Stuff the Ballot Box” Strategy. It seeks to answer some of the most basic questions now rising in the minds of an American public and an American political leadership increasingly skeptical about the fairness and legitimacy of the 2020 election. How did the Democrats pull off its Immaculate Deception without detection and appropriate countermeasures by the Republican Party? When did the Democrats’ effort to topple a sitting president start? How much of what the Democrats did was illegal? And how much of what the Democrat Party and its agents did was done within the bounds of the law and rules but nonetheless led to an illegal outcome?

The Democrat Party’s Grand “Stuff the Ballot Box” Strategy

This section of the report provides a broad overview of all of the various moving pieces and parts of the Democrat Party’s Grand “Stuff the Ballot Box” Strategy. In the sections of the report that follow, we will provide additional granularity to each of these moving pieces and parts.

As illustrated in Figure Two, the Democrat Party and its political operatives used a two-pronged Grand “Stuff the Ballot Box” Strategy to FLOOD six key battleground states – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – with enough illegal absentee and mail-in
ballots to turn a decisive Trump victory into a narrow and illegitimate Biden alleged “win.”

The first and most obvious prong of the strategy was to dramatically INCREASE the number of registered Democrat absentee and mail-in ballots cast in six battleground states – Arizona, Georgia Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. As President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker warned in their landmark 2005 Carter-Baker Commission Report, the best way to stuff illegal ballots into our election system without detection is by increasing absentee and mail-in ballots.1

The second and more subtle prong of the strategy was to dramatically DECREASE the scrutiny and concomitant certification or verification of this new flood of absentee and mail-in ballots. By essentially taking the ballot verification cops off the beat, the practical result would be to dramatically INCREASE the number of illegal ballots that would be counted in the battleground states.

Figure Three illustrates the various (mostly) legal means and gambits the Democrat Party used to strategically game the presidential election system and thereby achieve what was, in effect, an illegal end – a FLOOD of illegal ballots sufficient to tip the election to Joe Biden.

These gambits included: law changes by state legislatures; rule changes by Secretaries of State (SOS) and other election officials; various court rulings, court interventions, and petitions; the aggressive use of so-called “Public-Private Partnerships” often funded by oligarchs like Mark Zuckerberg and George Soros; and the equally aggressive use of propaganda campaigns under the guise of “public awareness” messaging.

You can see from the checkmarks in Figure Three that each of these gambits are present in a significant degree in all six battleground states. Of the six states, Nevada, with its Democrat Governor and Democrat Legislature, is the worst offender followed by Michigan and Pennsylvania, each of which have a Democrat Governor.

Figure Four illustrates the variety of means and gambits the Democrat Party employed to dramatically INCREASE the flood of absentee and mail-in ballots. These gambits – many of them legal but some of them clearly bending or breaking the law or rules – included: relaxing mail-in and absentee ballot rules; sending absentee or mail-in ballots or applications for such ballots to every voter (universal mailing); increasing both the legal and illegal use of drop boxes; ballot harvesting; and the use of corrupt voting machines.

Figure Five similarly illustrates the variety of gambits the Democrat Party employed to DECREASE scrutiny of absentee and mail-in ballots. These gambits included: relaxation of ID verification; reduced signature matching requirements; illegally counting naked ballots to increase ballot curing – both legal and illegal; and reduced poll watching and observing. Again, it is important to point out here that much of what the Democrats did was legal; but some of what they did at times also bent, and arguably sometimes broke, the rules or the law.

In the remainder of this report, we shall further deconstruct the Grand Strategy of the Democrat
Party following the flow and logic of the figures above.

Strategically Gaming America’s Presidential Election

Let’s work our way now systematically through various means and gambits the Democrat Party used to strategically game America’s presidential election. Note that the examples that we will offer throughout the remainder of this report are designed to be illustrative rather than exhaustive.

This previously introduced figure summarizes the eight major means and gambits the Democrat Party used in its gaming of our presidential election:

Law Changes by State Legislatures

Three battleground states – Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania – issued major changes to their individual State Election Laws in the year leading up to the 2020 General Election. These are illustrated in Table One.

 

For example, after the Nevada State Primary Election, a Special Session of the State Legislature was called by the Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak of Nevada to change the state’s voting procedures. Notably, the CCP virus pandemic was used as a justification for this action. Consequently, AB-4 was an omnibus measure modifying election procedures during periods of declared emergency in Nevada as currently exists due to the CCP Virus.2

In Pennsylvania, on October 31, 2019, Democrat Governor Tom Wolf signed Act 77 after its passage in the Republican-Controlled State Legislature. This is the most drastic election law change Pennsylvania has made in modern history.

Act 77 made numerous major changes to state election law. In particular, the bill enabled “noexcuse” absentee ballot voting so voters no longer have to provide a reason for requesting absentee ballots; and it created a “new option” to vote by mail up to 50 days before an election and enabled voters to be placed on a list to “permanently receive a ballot application by mail.”3

This was a clear case where an unwitting “useful idiot” Republican legislature played right into the hands of the Democrat Party’s Grand Strategy. Note: the term “useful idiot” is attributed to Vladimir Lenin. It describes naïve people who can be manipulated to advance a political cause.


Page 11 0f 32

This sweeping bill also extended the amount of time voters could register to vote; extended mail-in and absentee submission deadlines; and authorized a $90 million bond to “reimburse counties for 60 percent of their actual cost to replace voting systems.”4

Rule Changes by the Secretaries of State

Secretaries of State in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania bypassed their State Legislatures to issue rule changes that effectively allowed the counting of illegal ballots. They did so under the theory that the executive agency makes the rules while power is derived by legislation passed.

For example, on May 19, 2020, Michigan Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, elected with the help of George Soros,5 announced that all registered voters in the August 4, 2020, primary and the November 3, 2020, General Election would receive mail-in ballot applications automatically.6 This was a sweeping change.

Regrettably, it wasn’t just Democrat officials who were involved in promulgating such rule changes. As another useful idiot for the Democrats’ Grand Strategy, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger played right into their hands. On March 24, he announced that election officials would mail absentee ballot request forms to all of Georgia’s 6.9 million active voters for the primary election. This universal ballot measure was taken not just for the Presidential Primary Election on May 19 but also for the General Election on November 3.7

Rule Changes by Election Officials Other than Secretaries of State

Rule changes were also enacted by other election officials, effectively bypassing any chain of command running through either the Secretary of State or State Legislature. These changes likewise contributed to the expansion of absentee and mail-in ballot voting.

For example, in Georgia, the State Election Board approved a rule in April of 2020 to allow Georgia voters to cast ballots by drop boxes on a twenty-four hours a day basis,8 using the CCP Virus pandemic as justification.9 This was a clear case of bending or breaking the rules, as Georgia state law does not permit counties to collect ballots outside of the normal business hours of Election Offices. Moreover, as this expanded drop box capability was implemented, poll observers testified that they were obstructed from observing ballot counting and processing, meaning that fraudulent ballots could have been dumped into these 24/7 drop boxes prior to collection.10

Similarly, on October 18, 2016, the Wisconsin Election Commission unanimously voted on a rule change11 for so-called “ballot curing” contrary to state law (specifically Wisconsin Statutes 6.84 and 6.86).12 With this illegal rule change, the Wisconsin Election Commission instructed that mail-in ballots with missing addresses should be cured, that is, fixed.13 However, Wisconsin Election Law states: “If a certificate is missing the address of a witness, the ballot may not be counted.”14


Page 12 0f 32

This may well be a case where the Republican Party was sleeping on the job. This change went unchallenged for eleven statewide elections until the Trump campaign took action following the November 3 election where mail in ballots played a crucial role.15 The lack of a more timely challenge notwithstanding, the action taken by the Wisconsin Election Commission was clearly illegal.

Guidance Issued by Secretaries of State

As an additional gambit, Secretaries of State and other government officials in four of the six battleground states –Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – have pushed the envelope of their authorities and beat the rules to unilaterally bypass state legislatures and other election officials to issue so-called “guidance.” Their goals are to effectively expand the universe of absentee and mail-in ballots while reducing scrutiny of such ballots. Moreover, they did so often in clear contradiction of State Election Codes.

The poster children for this problem – and two shining examples of the corrosive effects of the oligarch George Soros on the integrity of American elections – are Michigan’s Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Pennsylvania’s Democrat Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar. Both of these liberal extremist puppets were elected with the help of the so-called “Secretary of State Project,” a political action committee funded by George Soros and members of the Democracy Alliance.16

The goal of the Secretary of State project was to build a “Democrat Firewall” in key battleground states by placing progressive extremists in positions of authority where they would be willing to bend, and, at times, break the law.17 This is exactly what has happened in the 2020 Presidential Election.

Consider, for example, Boockvar’s arguably unlawful guidance on September 15, 2020.18 She directed local election officials not to perform on-the-spot signature analysis for absentee and mailin ballots. In effect, mail-in ballots could not be rejected even if election officials deemed there was an improper signature match. When it comes to outrageousness, this is about as outrageous as it gets in terms of DECREASING the scrutiny of mail-in and absentee ballots.

More broadly, Boockvar appeared to exhibit a total disregard for the sanctity of our legal system when she submitted clearly unlawful guidance a few days before the November 3 election that allowed voters missing proof of identification to have their mail-in ballots cured until November 12 – nine days after the election. This did indeed break the law; and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed, finding that Boockvar lacked the statutory authority to take that step.19 Yet it was a clear and blatant attempt by a Soros puppet to rig the election.

George Soros certainly got his money’s worth as Boockvar also sought to extend deadlines for mail-in ballots,20 citing concerns over delivery times involving the United States Postal Service.21 Republicans opposed the action.22 Said Pennsylvania Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (Republican): “The issue is [that]…Secretary [Boockvar is] trying to influence this process by
