What I am now Blogging about I find very troubling. Very disturbing. And as I Researched this Matter, I simply couldn’t believe what I was Reading. And I offer the places for you to go and Read it yourself instead of Saying this is another Anti-Trump Blog. No, this is a Blog about The Truth Will Set Us Free! So please, if you find this as troubling as I did, then all of us may have been, well, Looks like we were Set-Up!
Here, Let us Start-
With very little fanfare, in the Oval Office, an EXECUTIVE ORDER was once being Signed by President Trump in 2017.
May 11, 2017!
Ironically about a Subject he keeps asserting-Voter Fraud. And the Resulting Results by this Order are now labeled TOP SECRET and are now safely locked away for __ years. In other words, what Operation Voter Fraud’s Results found and concluded were locked away, but Not before Trump was given them to Read and Study. But he Orchestrated all of it. Now, they are nicely tucked away. WTH?
IN THE OVAL OFFICE and-
On May 11, 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order creating the “Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.”
“Commission on Voter Fraud” Created in 2017 by President Trump!
And why was it created? Yes, Brilliant Minds were brought Onboard to create something, but was it sinister? But did you even know about it? Most likely, this is the First Time you’ve ever heard any of this.
Here, Read it for Yourself-
Executive Order 13799 of May 11, 2017

And here- Find it here-
No, it’s not a Secret! But who was put on This Commission and it’s real Purpose is highly Questionable! Who? Like-Minded Voter Fraud Minded People were. And the Results we’ll never now see. Just like the JFK Files. And with the results tucked away for __ years I do find that part to be very bothersome. Was Sedition or Treasonous Notes in it? But who was put in this Commission on Voter Fraud? By the Man who is the Biggest proponent of Voter Fraud ever?
Vice President Mike Pence is the chair, and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach — one of the nation’s leading promoters of the myth of voter fraud and laws restricting access to voting — is the vice chair. Its members include Hans von Spakovsky of the Heritage Foundation and J. Christian Adams of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, two of the country’s most notorious advocates for voter suppression.
There is strong reason to suspect this Commission is not a legitimate attempt to study elections, but is rather a tool for justifying discredited claims of widespread voter fraud and promoting vote suppression legislation. Election experts are concerned the Commission will highlight isolated incidents of fraud, which constitute a tiny fraction of ballots cast, as a maneuver to recommend suppressive laws at the state and federal level.
If you study that last paragraph, it sure seems what it talked about in that 2017 paragraph is what actually all of us witnessed as is and was taking place in 2020 and now 2021. All of it is taking place still and it started in 2020. But did this Commission on Voter Fraud create a Playbook on How to Really Steal an Election based on Voter Fraud?
The executive order was the culmination of months of unfounded charges of voter fraud by President Trump and his surrogates, dating back to the campaign. In the run-up to Nov. 8, 2016, President Trump asserted the election was “rigged” and warned of “large scale voter fraud.”Twenty days after being elected, he claimed he would have won the popular vote “if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.”
These false assertions continued after he was sworn into office in 2017. During his first official meetings with congressional leaders in January, President Trump stated that between 3 to 5 million unauthorized immigrants had voted in the election. A few days later, the president declared via Twitter that he would “be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and… even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time).”
And now, does any of that bother you? It bothers me. I think it should bother you because it’s really Scary if you think about it.
What was the COMMISSION ON VOTER FRAUD’s Game Plan? The FINAL REPORT?
What’s in it? Why can’t we see it? I want to read it. Don’t you?
But the ACLU became involved-
Transparency and Balance
The ACLU filed a federal complaint in the District of Columbia on Monday,
July 10, challenging the commission’s ideological balance and seeking a judi-
cial order requiring more transparency pursuant to the Federal Advisory
Committee Act (FACA).31 With its complaint, the ACLU filed a motion for a
temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction.32 The ACLU noti-
fied the court that its case was related to EPIC’s,33 and the court assigned the
case to Judge Kotelly.34 She set the case for a chambers telephonic conference
the following morning, and negotiated with the parties a completion of mo-
tion briefing by the end of the week.35
The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law also filed a District
of Columbia July 10 federal complaint seeking judicially imposed transpar-
ency pursuant to FACA.36 With its complaint, the committee filed a motion
for a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction37 and a notice
that its case was related to the other two before Judge Kotelly.38 Judge Kotelly
held a courtroom telephonic conference with the parties on the following
Judge Kotelly ruled in both cases on July 18.
With respect to the ACLU case, Judge Kotelly determined, “The only ju-
risdictional basis pursued by Plaintiffs is in the form of mandamus. Because
the Court concludes that mandamus jurisdiction is unavailable in this case at
the present time, Plaintiffs’ motion must be denied.”40 Litigation on an
amended complaint is stayed pending the results of other litigation.41
For Full Report-
The Presidential Advisory Commission requested voter roll records from all 50 states on June 28, 2017. The deadline for the requests was July 14.As of July 10, no states had committed to providing all requested information. 18 states refused the Commission’s request outright, while 30 agreed to provide the Commission with information that is already publicly available. Hawaii had not confirmed that they had received the request, while Illinois had not responded.
Texas restraining order
On October 3, 2017, Judge Tim Sulak of the 353rd District Civil Court issued a temporary restraining order blocking the release of Texas voter rolls to the commission, citing concerns over the handling of the information. A hearing was scheduled for October 16, 2017. On October 12, 2017, the Texas Third District Court of Appeals issued a temporary stay on the suit, delaying the hearing that had been scheduled for October 16. On October 13, the district court issued an indefinite extension to the restraining order prohibiting the release of voter records.
Immediately, the “Commission on Voter Fraud” went after Voter Rolls-Who Voted Democratic? Who Voted Republican?
The Commission was formally disbanded on January 3, 2018. Or was it? What was in their Final REPORT?
Voter Rolls alone would tell a Candidate where they should Campaign harder in. And which ones to not worry about.
This whole Event is troubling to see…
Read what each State said about the Above Request on Voter Rolls-
Some States stood strong for Voter Integrity! Some, not so much…
But to make sure I wasn’t biased in my writing, here, read about this from a different Writer’s perspective-
The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity (PEIC or PACEI), also called the Voter Fraud Commission, was a Presidential Commission established by Donald Trump that ran from May 11, 2017 to January 3, 2018. The Trump administration said the commission would review claims of voter fraud, improper registration, and voter suppression. The establishment of the commission followed Trump’s claim that millions of illegal immigrants had voted in the 2016 presidential election, costing him the popular vote. Vice President Mike Pence was as chair of the commission and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach was vice chair and day-to-day administrator.

On June 28, 2017, Kobach, in conjunction with the Department of Justice, asked every state for personal voter information. The request was met with significant bipartisan backlash; 44 states and the District of Columbia declined to supply some or all of the information, citing privacy concerns or state laws.
Trump’s creation of the commission was criticized by voting rights advocates, scholars and experts, and newspaper editorial boards as a pretext for, and prelude to, voter suppression. At least eight lawsuits were filed accusing the Commission of violating the law.
On January 3, 2018, Trump abruptly disbanded the commission; he repeated his claims of election fraud and citing many states’ refusal to turn over information as well as the pending lawsuits. The commission found no evidence of voter fraud. At that time, Trump asked that the investigation be transferred to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which already holds much of the requested state voter data and oversees immigration records. The acting DHS press secretary said that Kobach would not be advising or working with DHS, and the White House said it would destroy all the state voter data collected by the Commission.
The letter was not made public, and it became publicly known only after Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, tweeted out an image of the letter the day after the letter was written. Along with the image of the letter, she wrote “Pence and Kobach are laying the groundwork for voter suppression, plain & simple.” A few hours after Gupta’s tweet, Kobach confirmed to The Kansas City Star that the letter was authentic.
Rick Hasen of the University of California, Irvine, an expert on election law, stated that the commission was “a pretext to pass legislation that will make it harder for people to register to vote” and that there could be no confidence in whatever the committee produced. In a June 2017 editorial, Hasen ridiculed the commission as a “faux commission”.
At least eight lawsuits were filed challenging the commission, alleging that its activities violated the law. Five of the plaintiffs in the different lawsuits were non-profit organizations that included: the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU v. Trump and Pence and Joyner v. Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity), the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, NAACP (NAACP v. Trump), Public Citizen, and the Electronic Privacy Information Center. The lawsuits by the first two groups involved the lack of transparency of the commission’s meetings, whereas the lawsuits by the last two groups involved the collection by the commission of personal private data. In addition to the lawsuits, complaints have been filed with federal agencies against two of the commission’s members.
In response to the lawsuit filed by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, the commission abandoned plans to accept responses through the Department of Defense safe access file exchange website and announced plans to use an existing White House system. The commission asked states to refrain from submitting data while the case was pending. The commission also stated its intention of deleting voter information from Arkansas, the only state to officially submit voter data on the Department of Defense website. On July 24, Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly denied EPIC’s request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against the commission, ruling that the commission was not required to conduct a privacy review before gathering data. On August 29, the government’s attorney told the judge that confusion at the Department of Justice had resulted in the failure to disclose relevant documents to the plaintiffs, and Kollar-Kotelly ordered the government to provide a list of documents it wanted to withhold, and how it would comply with disclosure rules.
In November 2017, Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, a Democratic member of the commission, said that Kobach was refusing to share working documents and scheduling information with him and the other Democrats on the commission. He filed suit, and in December a federal judge ordered the commission to hand over the documents. Two weeks later, in January 2018, Trump disbanded the commission, and his administration informed Dunlap that it would not obey the court order to provide the documents because the commission no longer existed. On August 3, 2018, Dunlap wrote that the documents available to him did not support claims of widespread voter fraud. He described the investigation as the “most bizarre thing I’ve ever been a part of….After reading this, I see that it wasn’t just a matter of investigating President Trump’s claims that three to five million people voted illegally, but the goal of the commission seems to have been to validate those claims.”
In January 2018, in the Joyner case, the Department of Justice disclosed that the White House would not be turning over any state voter data to the Department of Homeland Security, despite the White House‘s and Kris Kobach‘s earlier statements to the contrary.
Calls for defunding and disbandment
On June 22, 2017, Representative Marc Veasey of Texas’s 33rd congressional district introduced H.R. 3029 to deny funding for the commission. In August 2017, Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer wrote an editorial calling on Trump to disband the commission. He also threatened that if Trump did not disband the commission, he would try to deny the commission money in a funding bill.
On January 3, 2018, two weeks after the court order instructing the commission to share its working documents with its Democratic members, the Trump administration disbanded the commission. The panel disbanded without making any findings of fraud.
In announcing that he had dissolved the Commission, Trump blamed states for not handing over requested voter information to the commission, and still maintained that there was “substantial evidence of voter fraud”. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that “rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense,” Trump abolished the panel and turned the matter over to the Department of Homeland Security. Election integrity experts argued that the commission was disbanded because of the lawsuits, which would have led to greater transparency and accountability in the commission and thus prevented the Republican members of the commission from producing a sham report to justify restrictions on voting rights, and that oversight by a cabinet-level agency such as DHS could preclude open meetings and requests for compliance with public records laws.
And that really Happened and took place between 2017 and 2018. But what Secrecy still remains no one will know except it should be pretty obvious to a prudent person who hasn’t had their pants yanked down of how all of this was obviously used against the Public. It still continues and had to have been part of The Big Picture. And that was the COMMISSION ON VOTER INTEGRITY or “Commission on Voter Fraud”.
Now, you know too…
