How Long Before They're Knocking At State Senator Doug Mastriano's Door?

We'll start here at the Washington Post:

The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol issued subpoenas to 11 people associated with or involved in the planning of pro-Trump rallies that preceded the violent insurrection.

The subpoenas announced on Wednesday evening by the committee come a week after it issued subpoenas targeting two top Trump White House officials, the chief of staff to the acting defense secretary, and longtime Trump adviser Stephen K. Bannon.

Several of the newly subpoenaed are rally organizers — including the founders and staff of the pro-Trump Women for America First group — who could face questions about reports that the group had concerns about the “Stop the Steal” rally turning into an illegal and chaotic march on the Capitol. They may also be able to shed light on the degree to which the former president and his senior White House aides knew about their fears of chaos on Jan 6.

You remember that "Stop the Steal" rally, right?

We wrote about it in January

State Senator Doug Mastriano was involved in that rally, as well all know. Here's some more info from Daily Beast:

Two days before the Capitol riot, Doug Mastriano ended one of his frequent Facebook Live videos on an abrupt note. The Pennsylvania state senator had referenced his upcoming speech at a pro-Trump Stop the Steal conspiracist rally in D.C. on Jan. 6 but didn’t want to discuss the event on his official government page.

“We’re gonna hop over on the other page, Doug Mastriano Fighting For Freedom, where we can talk freely,” Mastriano told viewers, directing them to his personal Facebook account. “So please follow me over to Doug Mastriano Fighting For Freedom, we’ll continue the conversation off of this government page, and onto a page where we can speak freely about everything.”

The video on his personal account has since been deleted, along with other posts related to Mastriano’s activity on Jan. 6. But his social-media strategy, beginning with open courtship of the QAnon conspiracy theory, has long walked the line between elected official and far-right instigator. Via a network of near-identical Facebook pages, Mastriano has amassed a following that calls itself his “army.” And while some Mastriano fans are facing prison time for their alleged involvement in the Capitol riot, the state senator has continued to push election-fraud hoaxes, culminating this month in his demand for an “audit” of the 2020 presidential election in Pennsylvania.

According to this cached page at the Wayback Machine, Doug was listed as an "Invited speaker and featured guest."

Women for America First even promoted the August Audit The Vote Rally on their website where (you guessed it) Doug Mastriano was a featured speaker.

Mastriano also spoke at the Women For America First rally in December.

Shouldn't someone ask State Senator Doug Mastriano's involvement with Women for America First?

Now that they've been subpoenaed by the Congress and everything.

Statement Regarding The FRAUDULENT "Best of Pittsburgh 2021" Poll (UPDATE: Sign The Petition!)

As some of you may know, this blog was nominated for "Best Blog" in the most recent "Best of Pittsburgh" poll put out by the Pittsburgh City Paper.

They posted the so-called "results" this morning:

As you can see, this blog wasn't even listed in the first three.

My statement:

We all know why Discover The Burgh is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why their media allies are trying so hard to help them: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this "Best in Pittsburgh" poll is far from over. Discover The Burgh has not been certified as the winner in any Pittsburgh neighborhoods, let alone any of the highly contested coffee shops headed for mandatory recounts, or neighborhoods where our blog has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor (me).

Beginning Monday, our blog will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure the Federal alternative newsweekly polling laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner (me) is seated. Pittsburghers are entitled to an honest poll: that means counting all legal votes, and not counting any illegal votes. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in the poll. It remains shocking that Discover The Burgh refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants votes counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased readers. 

Over the past few weeks, many people have been saying, "The only way Dayvoe will lose this election is if the polling process is rigged."

A few weeks ago at the shooting range, a big strong man came up to me, tough kind of a guy, and said, "I want to thank you, Dayvoe, for being the best blog in Pittsburgh." And he had tears coming down his eyes. This wasn’t just a statement, because he had tears coming down. Unless he was a real wise guy. But he had tears coming down his eyes.

So we know that this poll is fake news.

So I am hereby demanding a full forensic accounting of all of the City Paper polling data. I want to see exactly how the Demoncrat Deep State hacked into the CP's servers and made all those dead people vote at all those coffee shops. 

Want to know how I know that this poll was rigged?

Wendy Bell came in second in "Best Jagoff."

Thank you and good night.

That's all.

UPDATE: Sign The Petition!

September 28, 2021

It's A Weekday, And That Means That Wendy Bell Is LYING. Again.

Yesterday's BS Board From Wendy Bell Radio:

You'll note that Wendy leaves out the most important part of the "audit" Cyber Ninja put together. This part, from the "audit's" Executive Summary:

On the positive side there were no substantial differences between the hand count of the ballots provided and the official election canvass results for Maricopa County. This is an important finding because the paper ballots are the best evidence of voter intent and there is no reliable evidence that the paper ballots were altered to any material degree.

We talked about this only yesterday, Wendy. Did you miss it? I'm pretty sure you read this blog. Didn't Brock forward it to you when I post the link on twitter? 

Biden won Arizona. The Cyber Ninja "audit" even says so. That's the bottom line, Wendy. Everything else is right wing propaganda aimed at undermining democracy. 

But I suspect you already knew that.

Anyway, let's look at some of Wendy's numbers to see if there's been an more credible explanation than what Wendy spews.

9,041: Maricopa County explained in a series of tweets (I'll thread them together for easy reading):

CLAIM: 9,041 more ballots returned by voters than received BOTTOM LINE: This suggests a lack of understanding about how EV 33 files work. It’s not unusual for more ballots to be returned by voters than received.

EXPLANATION: The majority of these involve cases where voters returned a ballot without a signature or with a signature discrepancy. In those cases, election staff contact the voter to ensure their vote counts.

The most common reasons for a single voter having multiple entries in the EV 33 file are:

  •  a voter sent back an envelope unsigned
  •  there’s a signature discrepancy

A record for the original ballot is entered into the EV 33 file (where we track returned ballots). A second entry is recorded when a ballot envelope is signed or the signature discrepancy is resolved.

The appropriate conclusion to draw from this finding is that the early voting team was performing their statutory-required responsibility by reviewing signatures on all returned mail-in ballots.   

23,344: Maricopa also explained this number:

Then there was this tweet with a screen shot from the report itself:

Wait. What?

Wendy (and/or Brock) didn't you research this? I mean fully research this?

Part of that research would have been to present evidence (actual evidence) showing why Maricopa County's explanations are false.

You failed to do that.

So either you didn't bother to fully research this before going "on air" or you did and decided not to tell your vast vast audience.

Either way, you're lying to them.

More On Cyber Ninja's "Audit"

In case you didn't know it, here's the news

After months of delays and blistering criticism, a review of the 2020 election in Arizona’s largest county, ordered up and financed by Republicans, has failed to show that former President Donald J. Trump was cheated of victory.

Instead, the report from the company Cyber Ninjas said it found just the opposite: It tallied 99 additional votes for President Biden and 261 fewer votes for Mr. Trump in Maricopa County, the fast-growing region that includes Phoenix.

“Truth is truth and numbers are numbers,” Karen Fann, the Republican Senate president who commissioned the vote review, said as the findings were presented to the State Senate on Friday.

This is from the Audit's Executive Summary. This is the reality: 

What has been found is both encouraging and revealing. On the positive side there were no substantial differences between the hand count of the ballots provided and the official election canvass results for Maricopa County. This is an important finding because the paper ballots are the best evidence of voter intent and there is no reliable evidence that the paper ballots were altered to any material degree.

Of course, reality will not sway the Trump-mob:

After all the scurrying, searching, sifting, speculating, hand-counting and bamboo-hunting had ended, Republicans’ post-mortem review of election results in Arizona’s largest county wound up only adding to President Biden’s margin of victory there.

But for those who have tried to undermine confidence in American elections and restrict voting, the actual findings of the Maricopa County review that were released on Friday did not appear to matter in the slightest. Former President Donald J. Trump and his loyalists redoubled their efforts to mount a full-scale relitigation of the 2020 election.

Any fleeting thought that the failure of the Arizona exercise to unearth some new trove of Trump votes or a smoking gun of election fraud might derail the so-called Stop the Steal movement dissipated abruptly. As draft copies of the report began to circulate late Thursday, Trump allies ignored the new tally, instead zeroing in on the report’s specious claims of malfeasance, inconsistencies and errors by election officials.

So what were some of those specious claims? 

The AP:

[Doug Logan, CEO of Cyber Ninjas], claiming election results were deleted from Maricopa County’s election management system: “So some individual went into an application, and they chose specifically to run something that would clear all records in the system that was used to generate the official results, the day before an audit started.”

THE FACTS: No, the data never disappeared; it was just moved. Maricopa County officials made copies of the data and archived it before removing it from the election management system.

“We have backups for all Nov. data & those archives were never subpoenaed,” the county said in a statement on Twitter. County officials said data cannot be stored indefinitely on the election management system. “Cyber Ninjas don’t understand the business of elections,” the county said. “We can’t keep everything on the EMS server because it has storage limits.”


LOGAN: “23,344 people voted when they should no longer have access, or would not normally have access” to voting in Maricopa County because they have moved.

THE FACTS: No, that’s not what happened. Logan reviewed the names of voters against a commercial database of addresses, not a database of voters. He found that 23,344 reported moving before ballots went out in October. While the review suggests something improper, election officials note that voters such as college students, those who own vacation homes and military members, can move to temporary locations while still legally voting at the address where they are registered.

“A competent reviewer of an election would not make a claim like that,” said Trey Grayson, a former Republican secretary of state in Kentucky.

And the Maricopa County had some more info on this:

And the report actually addresses this:

Then there's this from AZ Central:

Did Maricopa County count 17,000 “duplicate” ballots?

Analysis by Shiva Ayyadurai, or "Dr. Shiva" as he is known to far-right adherents, found what he called 17,322 “duplicate” ballot envelope images in the county’s files. These were different images of the same envelopes, with the same voter ID.

Just because there are multiple images of the same envelopes does not mean that the county counted the ballot inside more than once.

Sometimes there is more than one image of the same ballot envelope because, if there are issues with the original signature, the county takes an image of the same envelope multiple times as workers attempt to get a valid signature from the voter.

For example, if there is a blank signature, the county takes an image of the envelope before contacting the voter to attempt to get a signature. If the voter then signs the envelope, the county takes another photo.

Because the Senate’s subpoena asked for all envelope images, the county provided the Senate with all of the images, even those that did not have final signatures.

The county says it only counts the ballot inside once there is a valid signature.

And so on.

Feel free to peruse Maricopa County's twitter feed or their debunking website on this issue.

Real world example from Breitbart.

After rather quietly pointing out the truth:

At the presidential ballot level, the report found very little difference between “the results of the hand-recount of the Presidential Race of the Maricopa County Forensic Audit” and the Official Maricopa County Canvass.”

The Trump-patriots at Breitbart spend an inordinate amount of time talking about what they call in the headline "49,000 questionable votes."

The headline, of course, does not mention the reality that the audit showed Biden winning.

Then they break down those 49k.

  • 23,344 mail-in ballots were counted from individuals who no longer lived at the address to which the mail-in ballot was sent. The audit called these “mail-in ballots voted from prior address” in the voter history phase. (critical impact)

We've dealt with this above.

  • 9,041 more ballots returned by voters than received in the voter history phase. (high impact)

Maricopa tweeted a response to this:

  • 5,295 voters that potentially voted in multiple counties in the certified results phase.  (high impact)

Mariacopa tweeted on the "multiple counties" issue:

ABC15 in Arizona goes further:

Public voter files in Arizona only contain the name, address, and year the person was born. This makes for a very weak match to other databases that would, at the very least, require a full date of birth. In a state with over 4.3 million active voters, there is a very real risk of false positives, two people with the same name and birth year. The audit report confirms that around 86,000 voters could not be matched to Melissa Data.

But even if the match is completely reliable… there are still issues.

There are two findings in the report marked “critical”; 23,344 people that the audit says voted from prior addresses and 10,342 potential voters that voted in multiple counties.

ABC15 provided a random sampling of the underlying data that the audit report used to make these claims.

Both reached the same conclusions. Most of the samples were false positives, meaning the person had the same name and birth year, but had a different driver's license and social security number on file.

They said there was no evidence of people voting in multiple counties.

  • 3,432 more ballots cast than the list of people who show as having cast a vote. The audit called this group of ballots “official results does not match who voted,” in the certified results phase. (medium impact)

 For this we go to Doug Logan, head of Cyber Ninjas himself:

Logan said one of the audit’s findings, that 3,432 more ballots were cast than were shown in a file of voters provided by the county, was resolved when election officials explained on Thursday that those voters didn’t show up in the files because their addresses are protected. The addresses of certain voters, such as law enforcement members, judges and domestic violence victims, are kept confidential under state law.

Do I need to keep going?

Biden won. Biden won Maricopa County. The Cyber Ninjas "audit" was a waste of time and money.

Does State Sen. Mastriano REALLY Want An Arizona Style "Audit"?

This is what Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano said last June about the election "audit" undertaken in Arizona:

I recently accepted an invitation to meet with Arizona State Legislators and tour the Maricopa County Audit facility in Phoenix, AZ.  I was joined by my colleagues Senator Cris Dush and Representative Rob Kauffman.

I was more than impressed with what I saw on the ground in Phoenix. What stood out to me most were the measures being taken to ensure transparency, security, and accuracy. [Emphasis added.]


A county audit like the one authorized by the Arizona State Senate is critically necessary for our Commonwealth. Those who have concerns about the accuracy of the 2020 election will have a forensic audit to investigate their concerns. Those who think that there was zero voter fraud, no irregularities, and the elections were conducted perfectly will have the chance to be vindicated.

And this is what the NYTimes is reporting today about the "audit" Mastriano praised only three and a half months ago:

After months of delays and blistering criticism, a review of the 2020 election in Arizona’s largest county, ordered up and financed by Republicans, has failed to show that former President Donald J. Trump was cheated of victory, according to draft versions of the report.

In fact, the draft report from the company Cyber Ninjas found just the opposite: It tallied 99 additional votes for President Biden and 261 fewer votes for Mr. Trump in Maricopa County, the fast-growing region that includes Phoenix.

Ooo, Doug. That's gotta sting.

The county itself tweeted the news:

So all that work, Senator, only to show that the gap between Biden and Trump was actually 360 votes wider?  

This must be so embarrassing for you, huh?

I mean last June you praised the accuracy of the "audit" in Arizona (in order to push for a similar "audit" here in Pennsylvania only) to have the thing bite you in the ass now.

Oh, and there was this in that Times piece:

“Those people stormed the Capitol because they believed the election was fraudulent when it was not,” said Matt A. Barreto, a professor of political science at the University of California, Los Angeles, and faculty director of the Voting Rights Project. “And had we had leaders who just accepted the results and encouraged their team to try harder next time, we could have avoided that very ugly fiasco.”

You were there at the Capitol on January 6, right? You saw breaches on both sides of the Capitol and personally walked through the barricades that had been moved by the rioters, didn't you?

And then you lied to the people of Pennsylvania about it. 

Did you see that Steve Bannon has been subpoenaed by the Congress

You were on Bannon's podcast, talking about this Arizona audit, right? Let me remind you in case you've "forgotten" the details:

Trump has persistently claimed the 2020 election was rigged against him, and pressured Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania and other states he lost narrowly to conduct an audit, as is happening in Arizona.

In an interview streamed online by former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, [PA Sen. Doug Mastriano, R-Franklin] Mastriano suggested the undertaking will be similar to that in Arizona, where Republicans are searching for evidence of fraud in what critics say is an attempt to discredit President Joe Biden's victory in the state.

“As we go through the ballots, my desire is to recount them, but also forensically analyze with photographic material whether the ballots were copied or filled in by a human,” Mastriano told Bannon, saying he planned to study what type of paper was used, look for what he called software “shenanigans” and review the chain of custody for the ballots.

Now that Bannon's been subpoenaed, when can we expect to see your subpoena to testify before Congress about your involvement in the insurrection?

That Eastman Memo And PA State Senator Doug Mastriano

I'm not sure if you've had a chance to read through the so-called Eastman Memo - the Trump team's plan to overturn the free and fair 2020 Presidential election.

From CNN:

The scheme to overturn the 2020 election and have Vice President Mike Pence gavel in Donald Trump as President on January 6 is based on nonsense legal theories and invented scenarios.

John Eastman, a lawyer working for then-President Trump's legal team, wrote a six-point memo on how Pence could dismiss the election results and hand Trump the Presidency, according to Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa's new book "Peril." The two-page memo was subsequently obtained by CNN.


According to Woodward and Costa, Trump implored Pence to consider the plan during a January 4 meeting in the Oval Office. 

The then-VP Pence rejected Trump's coup plan after contacting, among others, former VP Dan Quayle.

The plan, however, hinged on there being disputed electors in 7 states:

When {The President of the Senate] gets to Arizona, he announces that he has multiple slates of electors, and so is going to defer decision on that until finishing the other States. This would be the first break with the procedure set out in the Act.   

At the end, he announces that because of the ongoing disputes in the 7 States, there are no electors that can be deemed validly appointed in those States. That means the total number of “electors appointed” – the language of the 12th Amendment -- is 454. This reading of the 12th Amendment has also been advanced by Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe (here). A “majority of the electors appointed” would therefore be 228. There are at this point 232 votes for Trump, 222 votes for Biden. Pence then gavels President Trump as re-elected.

Pennsylvania was one of those 7 states. We know this by reading in the Lawrence Tribe article that Eastman quotes:

How would the Trump scheme supposedly work? Imagine that, after all the votes are counted, Biden has won 288 electoral votes to Trump’s 250. Game over, right? Not if Trump’s people have their way. They are currently doing everything they can to suppress votes in multiple states, but they are particularly focused on Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes, which they understand to be key to their win-while-losing strategy.

 Which is where we find our old friend treason adjacent State Senator Doug Mastriano.

We already know that The Trump White House was counting on Mastriano's help for the coup

The NYTimes reported that Trump said this in a conversation with the then-acting head of the DOJ:

“Just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me” and to congressional allies, Mr. Donoghue wrote in summarizing Mr. Trump’s response.

After being told that the department can't just snap its fingers and overturn the election Trump reportedly said:

Don't expect you do do that, just say the election was was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen.

And then the note name two specific Pennsylvanians:

Scott Perry (PA) + Senator from PA - Guy Mastriano - some of the (many?) calling

The White House was counting on Doug (not Guy) Mastriano's help.

As stated above, the coup plan sketched out by Eastman hinged on there being disputed electors in each of those 7 states.

And so what was Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano doing at that time?

Take a look:

Appearing Friday on "Steve Bannon's War Room," a podcast hosted by Trump's former political adviser, state Sen. Doug Mastriano, R-Adams, renewed calls for the General Assembly to seat electors friendly to Trump, rather than to Democrat Joe Biden, who won Pennsylvania by more than 80,000 votes.

"We're going to take our power back; we're going to seat the electors," Mastriano said. "Now, obviously, we're going to need the support of the leaders of the House and Senate."

The move was appropriate, he said without evidence, because Boockvar and other Democrats "cheated."

And then there's this from Mastriano's office itself

State Senator Doug Mastriano (R-33) proposed a legislative measure today that seeks accountability associated with the 2020 general election.

The resolution, introduced in conjunction with counterparts in the House of Representatives, disapproves and rejects the Secretary of Commonwealth’s premature certification of the results of the November 3 vote pertaining to presidential electors.

The legislative resolution directs State Department Secretary Kathy Boockvar to withdraw and vacate the certification of the presidential election.

We already know Doug Mastriano wandered all around the Capitol on January 6:

The depth of Senator Doug Mastriano’s involvement in the deadly insurrection on January 6th has been an open question with the senator giving limited details about his timeline. Reporting in WHYY previously disclosed Senator Mastriano personally chartered buses paid for by his political campaign committee. He has thus far refused to resign despite continued calls for him to leave office from his colleagues. 

An explosive report in the New Yorker has shed more light on his specific movements leading up to the breach of the U.S. Capitol highlighting a friendly right-wing radio interview. He has been identified as seeing the first and second breach of the Capitol.

How deeply is State Senator Doug Mastriano involved in the Trump Team's attempted plot to overturn the 2020 presidential election?

Jon In PGH Does Some Great Work On Twitter

It would behoove you to read this thread. In its entirety:

Message To Wendy Bell About Dominion Voting Systems

Yesterday in the NYTimes:

Two weeks after the 2020 election, a team of lawyers closely allied with Donald J. Trump held a widely watched news conference at the Republican Party’s headquarters in Washington. At the event, they laid out a bizarre conspiracy theory claiming that a voting machine company had worked with an election software firm, the financier George Soros and Venezuela to steal the presidential contest from Mr. Trump.

But there was a problem for the Trump team, according to court documents released on Monday evening.

By the time the news conference occurred on Nov. 19, Mr. Trump’s campaign had already prepared an internal memo on many of the outlandish claims about the company, Dominion Voting Systems, and the separate software company, Smartmatic. The memo had determined that those allegations were untrue.

The Times has posted a copy of that memo. It's linked above. Then there's this:

The court papers, which were initially filed late last week as a motion in a defamation lawsuit brought against the campaign and others by a former Dominion employee, Eric Coomer, contain evidence that officials in the Trump campaign were aware early on that many of the claims against the companies were baseless.

For example this is from the memo:

You might have to click on the image to see it. But do you see that last line? It reads:

There's no evidence Dominion used Smartmatic technology in their machines in the 2020 election.

And yet when we look at the evidence trail found on Wendy Bell's FB page, we find this:

See that part in the middle? Under the heading:


It reads:

  • Used "Smartmatic" voting software (financed by Hugo Chavez?) 

 Look up at the part of the memo I posted. It reads:

Dominion And Smartmatic Are Independent Companies That Split From Each Other In 2012.

The memo also says that Dominion has no ties to Venezuala and so on.

This is what the Trump Team knew a few weeks after Trump's election loss in November 2020 and yet they spread the lie anyway.

The lie spread far and wide and into a Wendy Bell Monologue.

How much of what you said was wrong, Wendy? 

Any comment?

Wendy Bell Misleads Her Audience About Ivermectin in India (With A Little Help From The Gateway Pundit)

As promised.

On Thursday of this week, Wendy Bell continued to mislead her audience about Covid-19.

And with, metaphorically speaking of course, balls the supposed size of Nicki Minaj's cousin's friend in Trinidad-Tobago, she's purporting to tell her adorings "the truth" the mainstream media is making sure they don't hear. The chootspah, I tell you!

She even says at 35:50:

The information I am going to give you is 100% not false.

Except, you know, it is. More or less 100% false.

She starts with this at 37:35:

They announced:

State Is COVID-19 Free Proving the Effectiveness of “Deworming Drug” IVERMECTIN.

Let's just make sure we're all on the same page. There's ivermectin for human use. There's ivermectin for animals. But of course the left, in its efforts to push you into one channel that is only focused on getting a vaccine, decided to conflate those ideas and say that people – they were self medicating with a horse dewormer.

[Whispers] They were dropping like flies.

[Normal voice] Erroneously reporting that addiction hotlines were being overrun by wacky people on the right [whispering] who were trying to self medicate. [Normal voice] Not true.

Here's the story:

Covid cases are Covid cases are plummeting in India thanks to new rules that promote ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to its massive population. The 33 districts in Uttar Pradesh, India have now become free from Covid-19 government informed on Friday. The recovery rate has increased up to 98.7% proving the effectiveness of ivermectin as part of the “Uttar Pradesh Covid Control Model.”

Let's get the "ivermectin for human use" part out of the way first.

She says that it's "not true" that addiction hotlines were overrun by people who'd taken ivermectin  for animals - a dewormer to treat Covid.

In a way, she's absolutely, utterly right. Addiction hotlines were not overrun by those wacky people treating themselves with the horse (and cow) dewormer.

Poison control hotlines were.

For example, in Texas. From USAToday:

We rate TRUE the claim that Texas saw a 550% spike in poison control calls due to people ingesting horse and cow dewormer. Data from the Texas Poison Control Network shows a 591% increase in calls about ivermectin between 2020 and 2021. The product has not been proven to treat or prevent COVID-19.

So Wendy, that's at least one thing you said that was definitely not "100% not false." 

And Wendy, if the double negative is confusing you, here's my translation put in context, by saying "addiction hotlines" instead of "poison control hotlines" you were effectively committing a sin of omission - you were telling a lie. Again.

Let's move on to the Uttar Pradesh story.

The Headline and lede Wendy is reading to you is from this article at Gateway Pundit

BTW, TGP presents itself as:

Founded as a counter to the establishment media that primarily shares news and opinion from a decidedly liberal perspective, TGP we believe it is important that we are transparent about our beliefs and perspectives and how it may shape our news and opinion priorities.  Our focus is to make editorial choices that address the gap in the politically liberal leanings of establishment media outlets.

Our website covers breaking news and provides opinion on the most pressing issues of the day.

Editorially, The Gateway Pundit espouses politically conservative world view that support conservative positions on most issues, including abortion, national defense, small government, second amendment rights, tax policy, individual freedom and Constitutional values.

The Gateway Pundit presents itself as a conservative news/opinion source. It is quite interesting to me, as it should be to you, that Wendy Bell chooses not to tell you that this was her "news" source for this story.

Anyway, if you look at TGP's story, you'll see that it sources this piece in The Hindustan Times. This is the basis of the story Wendy's quoting at us.

Nowhere in that piece is there a mention of invermectin or hydroxychloroquine, BTW.

What is in that Hindustan Times piece is something Wendy Bell chose not to tell you:

On the vaccination front, around 7 crore people in the state have received their first dose of the jab. The vaccination coverage in the state has exceeded 8.47 crores, out of which, 12 lakh people have been inoculated in the last 2 hours.

Crore? Lakh? What do those words mean?

According to Merrian-Webster, "crore" means ten million and "lakh" means one hundred thousand.

So that paragraph can be translated into: 

On the vaccination front, around 70 million people in the state have received their first dose of the jab. The vaccination coverage in the state has exceeded 84.7 million, out of which, 1.2 million people have been inoculated in the last 2 hours.

In fact, India touts it's national vaccination effort on its own Ministry of Health webpage:

Why didn't Wendy Bell tell her audience any of this? She's letting her audience infer that India is using ivermectin instead of the vaccine while India itself is pointing out that it has the "Worlds Largest Free Vaccination Campaign."

She said she's delivering to them the 100% truth, right?

How does that mesh? It doesn't. She's lying.

But let's take a closer look at that Gateway Pundit piece

Wendy actually misquotes the piece. She starts with:

Covid cases are Covid cases are plummeting in India...
Whereas the piece she's reading from starts with this:

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that COVID cases are plummeting in India... [Emphasis added.]
What she was saying was happening now was actually something that happened months ago - and the source she was citing even said so.  Wendy Bell was once an award winning journalist. How could she have made such a simple error? Maybe she should send some of those awards back.

Anyway, that earlier Pundit piece from last May actually triggered a few factchecks on its own:

Politifact - The Gateway Pundit claimed: "COVID cases in India plummet after government promotes ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine use."

COVID-19 cases in India dropped in mid-May only after a nearly vertical spike in cases over the previous several weeks. The Indian government has given limited recommendations for using the two drugs in connection with mild COVID-19 cases.

There is no evidence that the two drugs caused or contributed to a decline in cases in India. Neither is approved in the U.S. for COVID-19. And both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization recommend against using them to prevent or to treat COVID-19 infections, citing lack of scientific evidence of their effectiveness and the potential for serious side effects.

We rate this Mostly False.


USAToday - The claim that COVID-19 cases in India have declined due to the use of hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin is FALSE, based on our research. Neither drug is a proven treatment for COVID-19. New COVID-19 cases are falling in population centers where strict lockdown measures were put in place.


Health Feedback - In summary, neither the epidemiological nor the clinical data support the claim that the reduction in COVID-19 cases in India is due to the use of ivermectin. Media outlets making that claim based this solely on temporal correlation without providing evidence of a causal relationship. Contradicting this claim, epidemiological data show that contagiousness began to decrease in India before the release of new official guidelines recommending the use of ivermectin.

Um, Wendy? There's also some actual scientific data - I have the study right here - that shows that nothing that you said about ivermectin in India is true.

As I said, I have the study right here. (Isn't that how you "validated" that study you hoped would disprove Alan Dershowitz fact check of you?)

From the study (that was actually done in India):

Conclusions: Inclusion of ivermectin in treatment regimen of mild to moderate COVID-19 patients could not be said with certainty based on our study results as it had shown only marginal benefit in successful discharge from the hospital with no other observed benefits.

Really, Wendy. Shouldn't you ask your husband, the interventional cardiologist, about all this science-y stuff? I'm sure he'll explain it to you.

Wendy Bell (Willfully?) Forgets Her Own History

I'm still working on a larger blog post regarding Wendy's FB defense of Ivermectin yesterday. Maybe tomorrow. Note to Wendy (or Brock, who I'm pretty sure reads this blog): Look up what the word "crore" means in India. Then check the number of "crore" that have been vaccinated in that country. Then check to see what the Indian government says about that number.

That's what I'm doing right now. See you tomorrow.

However, let me bring to the light something she said about 37 minutes in. At that point, she's ranting about how people who try to give out information that the MSM does like are mistreated. She says:

People who give that information see their livelihoods ruined. They're fired. They're doxxed.

Oh my God! Doxxed? They're DOXXED?

Ok, I'm going to stop right there.

First, I'm wondering how much Wendy sees herself among those "people" who're fired, have their livelihoods ruined and so on.

Second, I'm wondering if Wendy Bell even remembers when she doxxed someone.

I remember it like it was only 253 days ago. This is what I wrote wa-a-a-ay back then:

Here's the story. Wendy Bell has sponsors and an otherwise concerned citizen called one of those sponsors, in this case a company called "Sierra Experts" (who can be reached at at 412 379-8333, by the way) and left this message:

Hello, I'm calling on behalf of a number of people who are going to start boycotting anyone who sponsors Wendy Bell. Um, we didn't know about Sierra Experts but the fact that you do sponsor Wendy Bell, who is full of hate speech and actually helped incite the riots at the Capitol yesterday, puts you on a bad list that a lot of people are going to avoid. We are going to do our level best to educate people about that. Please remove yourself from sponsoring Wendy Bell. She is full of hate speech and she is part of the reason violence was incited at the Capitol yesterday. Thank you.
And so what did the freedom loving common sense conservatives at Sierra Experts do with this voice mail?

Wendy Bell herself explained on the now-blocked facebook video:

That woman left, what she thought was an anonymous phone call at my advertisers. Well, my advertisers are really smart people. And they don't like it when people they don't know, who aren't customers of theirs, try to browbeat them into submission to join "Joe Biden's America." So one of my advertisers managed to unravel the no-caller ID private line blocked number and I got to see the number. 

So my team did a reverse search, found out who the woman was, did some digging, found some audio of her, did a cross reference check of the audio. You gotta make sure who you're talking about if you're gonna go on and say, "This is what's going on here."

Wendy Bell found a picture of the woman and showed it to her vast adoring audience. On her BS board, she'd written the woman's name, phone number, work place and, according to my buddy Jon, coiner of the term "Radio Karen," told her listeners to harass the woman who called Sierra Experts (who, by the way, can be reached at 412 378-8333).

Did you forget all this, Wendy?

Message To Wendy Bell: Pope Francis On "The Jab"

From The Vatican:

The Pope has joined his voice to those of Bishops across North and South America to urge people to get jabbed against Covid-19.

In a video message produced in conjunction with the Ad Council, Pope Francis praised the work of researchers and scientists in producing safe and effective Covid-19 vaccines.

“Thanks to God’s grace and to the work of many, we now have vaccines to protect us from Covid-19,” he said in the video released on Wednesday.


Pope Francis went on to say that getting a Covid jab that is “authorized by the respective authorities” is an “act of love.”

Helping other do the same, he said, is also an act of love. “Love for oneself, love for our families and friends, and love for all peoples. Love is also social and political.”

The Pope noted that social and political love is built up through “small, individual gestures capable of transforming and improving societies.”

“Getting vaccinated is a simple yet profound way to care for one another, especially the most vulnerable,” he said.

Pope Francis then prayed to God that “each one of us can make his or her own small gesture of love.”

This reminded me of something Wendy Bell, SW PA's Angel of Death, said after being fact checked by a Alan Dershowitz, prominent Trump defender:

She references an interview Dershowitz did with Newsmax television. You can read about it here.

And this is how Newsmax characterized this part of the conversation:

Dershowitz also argued that the decision to be vaccinated is not really up to a person alone to make, as a shot does not only protect the person getting it. 

"I'm vaccinated and I'm not going into crowded places without masks," said Dershowitz. "I'm 83 years old and I don't want to get COVID, even if it doesn't kill me or hospitalize me. Vaccinated people are at risk. A lower risk, but a risk to be sure. Moreover, if unvaccinated people get massive amounts of COVID, they fill the emergency wards. They fill the ICU units. They prevent other people from getting medical care."

And this is how Wendy paraphrases Dershowitz' statements:

As an 83 year old, I avoid large crowds. I wear a mask. I'm concerned.

Note she leaves out all the stuff about COVID victims clogging up hospitals and how they "prevent other people from getting medical care."

Wendy goes on, addressing Dershowitz personally:

If you want to live with that fear, that is your choice. But your choice to live that way does not become my obligation to assuage your fear.

Um, Wendy? You're Catholic, right? I mean you posted on your own FB page that your son graduated from Central Catholic High School, right? And that school's mission is:

Central Catholic High School, a college preparatory school for boys, is guided by the educational principles of St. John Baptist de La Salle.

The school strives to provide a challenging, relevant, and diverse program of studies and extracurricular activities in an environment that fosters a life of faith and learning and develops leaders rooted in the Gospel values of integrity, respect, service, justice, and peace.

So, Wendy, what part of The Pope's call that "Getting vaccinated is a simple yet profound way to care for one another, especially the most vulnerable" intersects with your addressing a concerned 83 year old man's concerns about getting sick with what amounts to: 

If you're afraid of getting sick, it's not my concern to do anything to fix that.

Heartless, Wendy. Heartless Wendy Bell.

The Angel of Death.

What Hath Wendy Wrought? (97% of PA Covid Deaths Were Unvaccinated)

Yes, yes. I realize I am changing the words to Numbers 22:23 but there's a new plague in town so you'll forgive me for going biblical on this.

From the Anya Sostek of the Post-Gazette:

The overwhelming majority of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths in Pennsylvania are among unvaccinated and not fully vaccinated people, according to new data released Tuesday.

The data show 97% of deaths from COVID-19 in Pennsylvania so far in 2021 occurred in those who were not fully vaccinated, as well as 95% of hospitalizations and 94% of cases. Pennsylvania had not previously released data tracking so-called breakthrough cases of those who contracted COVID-19 after full vaccination.

See that, Wendy? Your plan on educating the masses about the dangers of "the jab" is going so well! 

To illustrate the point, the P-G has an illustration:

Wendy, I have the report from the Department of Health right here.

And a couple of bullet points from that report:

  • Among a total of 6,472 COVID-19-related deaths identified in Pennsylvania in 2021, there were at least 213 post-vaccination deaths identified (3%).
  • Cumulative death incidence among the unvaccinated and not fully vaccinated was 7.9 times as high as the death incidence among the fully vaccinated (56 vs 7 per 100,000).

From the P-G we read:

Since the beginning of 2021, there have been 6,472 COVID-19-related deaths in Pennsylvania. Just 213 of those people were fully vaccinated.

By those numbers, fully vaccinated people are at least eight times less likely to die of COVID-19, [acting state Health Secretary Alison Beam] said.


At Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health hospital, about 80% to 85% of hospitalizations are unvaccinated patients, said Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Michael Ripchinsky.

“The unvaccinated tend to be in the ICU, they require additional support for their breathing, they have longer lengths of stay in the hospital,” Dr. Ripchinsky said at the news conference Tuesday. “Of the small amount that are vaccinated and admitted to the hospital, many of them are immunocompromised, or they have mild symptoms and they are actually admitted for reasons to the hospital other than COVID-19.”

You're doing your job so well, Wendy. Talking to people how they have a (false) choice between "the jab" and their freedom. 

How many of those hospital patients are/were listeners of yours, Wendy? How many believed your vaccine sermonettes?

How many of those suffered? And of those, how many died?

You might want to ask yourself these questions.

Wendy Bell Gets Fact Checked By Alan Dershowitz

Yep. That's right. And it was beautiful.

Wendy got taken down by a Trump defender (remember Impeachment 1.0?)

Take a look see at yesterday's events:

After pointing out that he would not suggest a 100% effective cancer vaccine (even a 100% safe and effective cancer vaccine) on someone "because cancer is not contagious", he posits that the courts would probably support a mandate for a covid vaccine because this coronavirus is, adding "hopefully they'll follow the science the science and not the politics."

That's when Wendy, her science at the ready, steps in. She brings up this story from that esteemed and respected science journal, Gateway Pundit. 

Wendy says, "Well the science also shows us that in Israel, people who are vaccinated are 13 times more likely to transmit the virus to other people."

To which Prof. Dershowitz responds with a curt: That's just simply not true.

Then they went back and forth. The thrice fired former reporter turned pundit now broadcasting from a 1,000 watt radio station in Altoona claiming to have the study in hand, and the retired Harvard law professor on the other hand saying, "Uh, no."

Sorry, Wendy. The Dersh is right and you're wrong.

Politifact: The study from Israel found:

People who received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine in January or February 2021 were 13 times more likely to get a breakthrough infection with the delta variant than unvaccinated people who had COVID-19 during the same period were to be reinfected.
See your error, Wendy? Do I need to spell it out for you?

Politifact adds:

"The suggestion that you might be better off getting infected versus vaccinated does not take into account the inherent risks associated with COVID-19 infection, including death," [Dr. Matthew Laurens of the Center for Vaccine Development and Global Health at the University of Maryland] said. "Vaccination is the best prevention. This has been clearly shown in multiple prospective, randomized, double-blinded clinical trials, which are the very highest quality for clinical studies."

Experts told the journal Science that seeking immunity through deliberate infection would put unvaccinated people at significant risk of severe disease and death, or the lingering, significant symptoms of what has been dubbed Long COVID.

The Maccabi study shows the benefits of natural immunity, said University of Washington immunologist Marion Pepper, but "doesn’t take into account what this virus does to the body to get to that point." 

Left that last part out, didn't you Wendy?

Also, Wendy if you do have the study itself (and it's here in case you do not) there's a big bold text near the top that reads:

This article is a preprint and has not been peer-reviewed [what does this mean?]. It reports new medical research that has yet to be evaluated and so should not be used to guide clinical practice.

Did you miss that part, too? Or did you just decide not to tell your audience that part?

The danger here, Wendy, is that members of your audience will believe you when you discount the vaccines. Some of them might decide to take their chances on natural immunity. With any luck they'll make it through fine. Those unlucky, however, will end up in the hospital and some of them might even die.

Or they could take the vaccine and have the chances of hospitalization/death greatly reduced. Near zero greatly reduced, in fact. That's what the science actually says.

How do you sleep at night knowing that what you're serving to your audience (people who are relying on you for guidance and information) might possibly land them in the hospital or kill them?

Wendy Bell, Angel of Death. Fact-checked by a Trump Defender.

What a world we live in, huh?

Even George W. Bush Gets It

Yes, even the guy who ordered the waterboarding (which is still a war crime) gets it:

As a nation, our adjustments have been profound. Many Americans struggled to understand why an enemy would hate us with such zeal. The security measures incorporated into our lives are both sources of comfort and reminders of our vulnerability. And we have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within. There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit. And it is our continuing duty to confront them.

He's talking about these guys:

Y'know. The followers of this guy:

But this isn't the first time the Water-boarder-in-Chief spoke out against the orange fascist.

October 17, 2017 at the "Spirit of Liberty: At Home, In The World" conference in NYC: 

We have seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty. At times, it can seem like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together. Argument turns too easily into animosity. Disagreement escalates into dehumanization. Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions – forgetting the image of God we should see in each other. 

We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism – forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.   We see a fading confidence in the value of free markets and international trade – forgetting that conflict, instability, and poverty follow in the wake of protectionism.

Setting aside his own hand in our current cultural polarity, even the water-boarding war criminal saw Trump and Trump-ism for what it is: a danger to our society.

Fact-checking WIMKIN on Donald Trump and 9/11

Unless you've been paying attention to far more important things, our own Wendy Bell has made a deal of some sort with WIMKIN social media.

On its Facebook page, Wendy's WIMKIN promises: 

Uncensored, Non-Fact Checking, International Social Media Platform.

Well, the "Non-Fact Checking" part is certainly true.

Check out this posting from yesterday:

With the text:

So true. Join us at Wimkin for facts, truth and FREE SPEECH SOCIAL MEDIA!

Well, not so factual. Not so true. The first picture (the one beneath "He was with them 20 years ago:")  is not actually a picture of Donald Trump at Ground Zero on 9/11.

It is actually a picture of Donald Trump on Wall Street (about a half a mile away) on September 18 (about a week later). 

From the NYTimes:

A photo taken of him on Sept. 18, 2001, has been used in a widely circulated meme that claims Mr. Trump personally traveled to ground zero with hundreds of workers to help uncover victims.

Rolling Stone has another picture of him that day (note the guy over Trump's right shoulder. Note the guy's tie. Same guy. Same tie. Same day. September 18, 2001).

But was he "there for them" on (or about) 9/11? 

No. Again, from the NYTimes:

In the days after the attack, Mr. Trump ventured outside of Trump Tower to provide commentary, which largely focused on real estate and estimating the building costs of recovery. In an interview with a German television station on Sept. 13, 2001, Mr. Trump was asked if he would be personally involved in the recovery effort.

“I have a lot of men down here right now,” Mr. Trump said. “We have over 100 and we have 125 coming. So we’ll have a couple of hundred people down here.” He added: “We will be involved in some form helping to reconstruct.” 

And the evidence of him helping on 9/11 is lacking:

[Timothy] O’Brien [the author of “TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald,”], said the size of the Trump Organization at the time was “a little bit over a dozen people,” which would have made it impossible to send hundreds of people to participate in the relief effort. At the time, Mr. Trump had a large number of casino workers based in Atlantic City, but there is no documented evidence of him marshaling his resources to aid in the relief effort.

There's no evidence that it actually occurred.

Donald Trump was lying.

Then there's the charitable contributions Trump reportedly made:

Republican nominee Donald Trump claims he gave generously to help his city in the dark days after the deadly terrorist attacks. But new records show a pledged promise to donate $10,000 to a major 9/11 charity must have somehow slipped his mind.

City Controller Scott Stringer conducted a review of hundreds of pages of previously sealed records of the two main 9/11 charities at the request of the Daily News, and found that Trump and his charity hadn't donated a dime in the months after 9/11.

"For the periods covered by the audits, we did not find any record of a donation from Trump himself or a Trump entity to either the Twin Towers Fund or the New York City Public/Private Initiatives Inc.," Stringer's office said in a statement to the Daily News in response to a Freedom of Information Law request.

This appears to contradict Trump's prior boasts of spontaneous generosity, made as his hometown reeled from the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil in history. The records show that through mid-2002 there is no evidence that Trump personally or through the Trump Foundation gave to either group.

At that same time, however, Trump benefited from government help from Rolling Stone:

In January 2002, four months after the attacks, [US Senators] Clinton and Schumer stood in the White House Rose Garden, where George W. Bush thanked them for their work as he signed into law a budget containing some $20 billion in dedicated funding for New York’s recovery.

A not-insignificant chunk of that federal funding, $2 billion, was earmarked for distribution by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation and the Empire State Development Corporation. About a quarter of that – some $500 million – was explicitly set aside for helping small businesses in the area recover. Among the 8,214 early recipients was 40 Wall Street LLC, the most valuable building in Donald Trump’s portfolio of properties, a skyscraper that sits less than a mile from Ground Zero. (An additional $350 million was later allocated to the same cause, bringing the total number of businesses impacted to more than 14,000.)

Trump applied for and accepted the money, despite the fact that – as he acknowledged in an interview with a German news show immediately after the attacks – the property “wasn’t, fortunately, affected by what happened to the World Trade Center.”

The NY Daily News reported that the grant was about $150,000.

So there's no evidence to Trump's claim of giving $10,000 but lots of evidence he took $150,000 of government aid he didn't deserve.

Hey, WendyKIM, my new friends! Don't you think that if you're promising to deliver to the public "facts" and "truth" that you actually, um I dunno, make sure you deliver facts and truth?

So far, you're not doing too well on that account.

Perhaps it's the company you keep.

American History, According To Wendy Bell

Always on the case, yesterday Jon tweeted:

Transcript: this whole removal of this statue, a time capsule dating back to 1887 containing 60 items from 30 different families and businesses. 

Nope. [Here, she makes a "pffft!" sound]

We're going to, we're going to remove that, that sacred piece of American history and we're gonna put in a new time capsule, he said.

Wow. I can't imagine what got put in that box.

[In an "idiot" accent] "C'mon Earle. Let's see what we can do here. I mean we don't want all that old stuff, that historic, stupid stuff. That doesn't matter. That's all racist anyway.

Here's what we're gonna put in. I'm gonna put in my 'Black Lives Matter' shirt. You can put in your 'Ridin' with Biden' bumper sticker. Couple of masks. How about one of those gender neutral birth certificates? Yea, yea, yea. That's what we're going to do."

You'll note what Wendy values (Confederate memorabilia from the late 19th century) and what she mocks (BLM shirts, Covid-19 masks, symbols of gender equality).

Telling, no?

But let's remember who Robert E Lee was. The one story is that he was a kindly genteel Southern gentlemen who hated slavery and was simply defending Virginia in the Northern War of Aggression. 

Another story is found here:

Lee was a devout Christian, and historians regard him as an accomplished tactician. But despite his ability to win individual battles, his decision to fight a conventional war against the more densely populated and industrialized North is considered by many historians to have been a fatal strategic error.

But even if one conceded Lee’s military prowess, he would still be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans in defense of the South’s authority to own millions of human beings as property because they are black. Lee’s elevation is a key part of a 150-year-old propaganda campaign designed to erase slavery as the cause of the war and whitewash the Confederate cause as a noble one. That ideology is known as the Lost Cause, and as the historian David Blight writes, it provided a “foundation on which Southerners built the Jim Crow system.”

Traitor. That was Robert E. Lee.

And this is what Lee thought of slavery (The man commemorated by that statue enslaved human beings, Wendy. You know that, right?) In same letter where he calls it a moral evil, he writes:

I think it however a greater evil to the white man than to the black race, & while my feelings are strongly enlisted in behalf of the latter, my sympathies are more strong for the former. The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially & physically. The painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to better things. How long their subjugation may be necessary is known & ordered by a wise Merciful Providence. Their emancipation will sooner result from the mild & melting influence of Christianity, than the storms & tempests of fiery Controversy.

If you need any help unweaving Lee's prose, Adam Serwer, the author of The Atlantic article above, summarizes: 

The argument here is that slavery is bad for white people, good for black people, and most important, better than abolitionism; emancipation must wait for divine intervention. That black people might not want to be slaves does not enter into the equation; their opinion on the subject of their own bondage is not even an afterthought to Lee.

Enslaver. This was Robert E. Lee, Wendy. The man commemorated on the statue they finally removed. That was the man and, in essence, the system you're defending, Wendy. Face it.

However, I do agree with one point. Lee is a very important part of American history - one that should not be papered over. He fought for the Confederacy, defending those states' right to enslave human beings. Afterwards, his elevation to "genteel Southern gentlemen" was, in itself, a racist attempt to rewrite (and erase) this country's enslaving past.

It all has to be remembered and discussed.

Oops. My bad, Wendy. Did I whip a little Critical Race Theory on you while you weren't watching?

PS: Considering the reason why Wendy got bounced from KDKA Radio, what was she doing even talking about Confederate statues?
