1_) I sincerely regret the emotional trauma some of you experienced when 1/1000th of the January 6 rally turned unruly. That was surely an ethical, tactical, and strategic error of those involved. Please accept my condolences for the fear and trauma any of you experienced on January 6 in the US Capitol at the hands of any in the MAGA movement.
2) While I do not claim to have originated the idea of the January 4-6 rally, I welcomed it, and in the weeks leading up to it repeatedly invited citizens to rally in Washington DC January 4-6 to register objection to an election we saw as rigged. While some were distressed at the putative defeat of a president they loved, the distress of many originated in clear insult to the foundational principle of our republic, that principle being (as our Declaration’s opening phrases it), “just government derives its power from the consent of the governed,” such consent being determined in elections that are free, fair, and transparent (we believe). November 3’s election had been anything but free, fair, and transparent, and millions decided to assemble in DC from January 4-6 to petition our government for redress of grievance.
3) In all interviews before the rally I emphasized that it was to be peaceful, with language such as, “We don’t raise hell. We’re not the violent guys. We’re better than the other guys. Several steps better than the other guys. The other guys are probably going to try to bring violence and intimidation. Let’s show them with love and in peace that we are not going to be intimidated… Only we’re going to do it peaceably. We’re not going to be like the goons… We want to have the moral high ground… We want to be better than the other guys…” [i] In radio and podcast interviews I repeated such exhortations, and on January 5 published an essay drawing attention to the need for those in the rally to ignore or suppress anyone inciting violence, tweeting it to ≈ 300,000 followers, twice.[ii]
4) On the morning of January 6, the results of the January 5 Georgia Senate Run-off appeared. The egregious manipulation artifact that presented that morning[iii] may have caused temperatures to run a bit higher on January 6 than they otherwise might have.
5) Over the last three weeks, the results of investigations into Maricopa’s November 3 election have been announced, revealing massive election fraud vindicating the concerns (though not the unruliness) of those who rallied on January 6.
A) CANVASS – A 4,500-interview door-to-door canvass was disclosed two weeks ago. The canvassing organization asked five benign questions (none of which were any form of, “For whom did you vote?”) They report that citizens welcomed their interviews overwhelmingly, providing robust documentation and asking, What took you so long?
- Maricopa has 2.6 million registered voters, of whom 2.1 million voted November 3.
- Thus, 500,000 did not vote.
- Yet of the 500,000 who did not vote, ≈170,000 (34%) think they did vote. Many are adamant, telling stories about driving to the polls or mailing their ballots, and providing witnesses. Many have given affidavits to this effect.
- It thus appears that ≈170,000 Maricopans experienced voter suppression.
- Of 2.1 million Maricopa voters who voted (per the records), ≈100,000 are ghosts. The humans do not exist (which explains such arcane mysteries as 52 ballots being mailed from a 2-bedroom home, or ballots being mailed from empty sandlots).
- Another 30,000 ballots which people say they voted in-person do not show up, but those same 30,000 people show up as having voted-by-mail. What happened to their in-person votes, and from whence came their vote-by-mail votes?
- In sum, at the low end of the estimate the Maricopa canvass reveals at least ≈300,000 suppressed votes and stuffed ballots, and at the high-end the estimate is over 400,000. That is to say, 15% – 20% of the votes in Maricopa were either suppressed or stuffed. This swamps the outcome of 12 down-ballot races (two of which were Maricopa Board of Supervisors who won by tiny margins and who have since spent their time attacking the audit). The Maricopa rig also swamped the presidential race in Arizona, which was decided by 10,457 votes.
B) FORENSIC AUDIT OF BALLOTS – CyberNinjas delivered its audit last week:
- Maricopa deleted 1 million election files the day before turning their equipment over;
- What was left did not “tick-and-tie” (i.e., reconcile) with itself or anything else;
- The digital images of 284,412 ballots are corrupted so those ballots are unverifiable;
- VM55 (final vote file) has 255,326 Early Votes lacking EV33 (received votes) entries;
- There are at least 57,734 ballots with illegal provenance (e.g., voters who moved out of state decades ago still having ballots returned from their former addresses);
- There are 34,448 (unambiguously illegal) photocopies from 17,126 voters;
- There were 15 other felonies occurred whose effects cannot be quantified;
- Signature-legibility flipped:
- 95% legible vs. 5% illegible four weeks before the election;
- 5% legible and 95% illegible four days after the election;
- Thousands of ballot envelope images show approval stamps behind the graphics, suggesting the stamps were printed on the envelopes (establishing premeditation).
- A 25% surge in duplicates from November 4 to November 9th;
- There were 1,919 blank signatures stamped as approved;
- There were 587 bad signatures;
- There were 934 late returns that should not have been counted;
- There were 2,580 “scribble” signatures;
- There were 9,041 more mail ballots returned and recorded than official number sent;
- There were 3,432 more ballots cast than people who cast a vote.
- Mail-in ballots from 23,344 people who had (with all of their last name) moved away;
- There were 2,600 excess duplicate ballots;
- There were 2,382 people who voted in person after having moved out of the county;
- There were 5,047 who voted in more than one county for up to 5,295 votes;
- At least one batch of 50 ballots was tabulated twice;
- Deceased people voted 282 times;
- There were 393 ballots with incomplete names;
- There were 2,861 voters who shared an AFFSEQ number with another voter;
- There were days when 92% of the ballots received were all duplicates;
- IMPROPER PAPER UTILIZED: A large number of in-person ballots used paper not recommended by the manufacturer of the tabulators.
- HIGH BLEED-THROUGH RATES ON BALLOTS: Many in-person ballots show bleed-through (marks from one side of the ballot are visible on the other side). This does not happen when the manufacturer-recommended paper is utilized.
- OUT OF CALIBRATION BALLOT PRINTERS: Many ballots were printed on non-calibrated printers: the front page of the ballot is not aligned with the back page of the ballot. This violates manufacturer guidelines and recommendations and could theoretically result in inconstant reading of votes across all the different tabulators.
- Audit Interference: Runbeck Election Services is a private firm that printed the Maricopa County ballots. When asked questions by Cyber Ninjas, Runbeck said that Maricopa County instructed them to not speak with CyberNinjas.
C) CYBER-SECURITY AUDIT – CyPHER/Ben Cotton Found Massive Cybersecurity Issues
- There were 1,064,746 Election files deleted. Many contained scanned ballots.
- There were 284,412 Ballot images on the EMS that were corrupt or missing.
- There were 27, 807 ballots cast from individuals who had moved before the election.
- Hundreds of ballots had incomplete names.
- Hundreds of people flagged as deceased prior to October 5, 2020, voted anyway.
- Maricopa’s systems violate CISA/industry standard cyber-security best practices.
- The machines were connected to the internet.
- The Maricopa County system was breached during the 2020 election.
- No security patches were done in 2 years since purchase.
- No anti-virus definitions were updated in 2 years since purchase.
- .exe files were found all over the server hard drives with modifications done.
- One Administrator name and password was used for ALL machines in the county.
- Hardware Configuration Issues
- Dual Boot configuration discovered on Adjudication 02 Endpoint.
- Two hard drives internal to system
- Both drives bootable to different configurations
- Clearly not an approved configuration
- Second hard drive contained non-Maricopa County Election Data (from South Carolina & Washington State).
- Logs produced by Maricopa County did not contain the Windows Security Logs.
- Security logs (set to maintain 20MB of data) were erased the day before the audit.
- Intentional overwriting of the Security Logs by the EMSADMIN account.
- 2/11/2021 – 462 log entries overwritten
- 3/3/2021 – 37,686 log entries overwritten
- 4/12/2021 – 330 log entries overwritten
- Oldest date in Windows Security Log was 2/5/21 (didn’t cover election).
NB Maricopa refused to supply crucial subpoenaed items that would reveal much more:
- Rejected provisional ballots;
- Unsecured mail ballots;
- Ballots returned to the County as undeliverable.
Our craven and reading-comprehension-challenged Mainstream Media laughably summarizes this pig’s breakfast: “Maricopa audit shows Biden still won by 10,800 votes.”
Good luck making that stick.
6) The Attorney General of Arizona, Mark Brnovich, is not so reading-comprehension-challenged as the MSM. We already knew that because of the fine brushback pitch he threw at the United States Department of Justice in June, reminding them about who created whom and where the Constitution assigns discretion to manage elections.[iv]
This Monday AG Brnovich continued to demonstrate his literacy by sending a muscular letter to the Senate requesting the entire production of the Maricopa Audit,[v] and sending a serious-as-a-heart-attack letter to Maricopa County telling them to preserve their records.[vi] Taken together, this means the efforts by RINO Establishment of Arizona to throttle down the Senate report were for naught: it all goes to the AG.[vii]
Everyone goes-for-broke. They lay their cards on the table. A man with a badge, a gun, and an ambition comes through the door.
DeepCapture’s 15 year arc apogees and bursts in the opening of Götterdämmerung.[viii]
7) Since November 10, 2020, I have been calling for the ballot boxes to be opened in six counties (those holding Las Vegas, Phoenix, Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Atlanta), predicting that one would find between 300,000 and 600,000 votes of election fraud in each of them. In only one of the six did investigation come to pass (Maricopa County, Arizona), and the number of fake and suppressed votes comes to 300,000 – 400,000 (per a canvass that was conducted), or 15%-20% of the ballots cast, and similarly, somewhere in the low hundreds of thousands (per a forensic audit).
To any rational person who is open to evidence, this a settled question.
“Of course you’d say that Byrne,” I hear the choagies cry, “With Maricopa you’re batting 1000 and we’re batting .0000!” So out of good sportsmanship I offer double or nothing: choose from the other five cities, Choagies, I’ll organize funding, and we will do it again.
But perhaps the Election Fraud Denial camp might practice a moment of sportsmanship themselves, and realize what their denialism has cost us as a nation. Perhaps it is time they let us move on to the next step. Now that we know the truth of Maricopa, citizens everywhere are reflecting on all the institutions of society that asked them to dismiss these claims as “baseless”: DHS and CISA (“the most secure election in history”), the state courts, the DOJ, the FEC, Mainstream Media, and politicians of all stripes. They were wrong: the Maricopa ballot boxes were at least 15% and perhaps as much as 20% suppressed and stuffed, as an extensive canvass revealed and a Senate-organized audit has corroborated. It was high-tech ballot stuffing and suppression, no doubt, but no different in principle than the Tammany Hall of yesteryear. The presidential race in Arizona was decided by 10,457 votes, of which we now know that over 57,000 were illegal and several hundred thousand may have been fake. If we ignore this, then we should dispense with the whole charade and recognize that we are ushering in an unelected uniparty of elites to preside over a Hunger Games world.
Otherwise, perhaps it is time for the Election Fraud Denial camp to pipe down a bit. Along with all the institutions of society that dismissed, canceled, and threatened tens of millions who saw the truth immediately and fought for it to be revealed.
8) Which brings us back to Congress.
The mystery of what happened at the Capitol on January 6 remains unresolved, and I welcome honest Congressional investigation into its origins. But since Congress is making such a production out of finding that origin, and since that origin is partially with me (in that I publicly echoed calls for peaceful assembly on January 4-6), and since I am also he who helped Arizona citizens nurture the conditions of the Maricopa audit into existence, and arranged the better part of its funding, and this Maricopa audit vindicates the concerns of the January 6 rally-goers, I thought it only right and proper that I offer to meet to address any questions or concerns you may have.
Please be forewarned that I will take these two additional positions:
9) Those who suppressed and stuffed Maricopa ballot boxes 15-20% (thus flipping Arizona’s 11 electoral votes and swinging 22 electoral votes) are the real “Insurrectionists”. They betrayed our Constitution, not the citizens who saw through the scheme that has now been exposed in Arizona (and which I am confident would be exposed in five other states if other audits went forward), saw the import of a hijacked national election, and held a rally, some minute fraction of which grew unruly (from lack of discipline, or from agitation, as honest Congressional inquiry would discover).
10) That horrible fear you experienced on January 6 at the hands of those unruly and misguided protesters (and whatever agents provocateurs existed amongst the crowd and police), that crippling insecurity that traumatized you… you are now visiting on hundreds of millions of other citizens. Because they are afraid. That is because they get the joke: only 31% of Americans will tell a pollster they believe Biden won fair and square, while 69% say that fraud was “Significant”, “Very Significant”, or they are “Unsure”. And that was before this fortnight’s news about Maricopa’s canvassing results and forensic audit.
So over 2/3 of Americans believe they face an administration of dubious legitimacy which, since the day it entered office, has seemed unusually keen to make three changes:
- To change election law to disrupt Constitutional tenets (e.g., States manage their elections), but would forever enable Maricopa-style election fraud nationwide;
- To change the electorate by jamming through the citizenship of tens of millions;
- To change the Supreme Court by stacking it so it sprinkles Holy Water on this mess.
Naturally enough, 69% of the citizenry smells skunk. In addition, the aversion of MSM to treating any of this with a modicum of intellectual honesty has led anyone with an IQ above room temperature to suspect that we are living through an engineered reality.[ix]
That’s why it feels weird, I assure all. It is supposed to be weird. The price to exit Weird is to accept a new engineered reality where 15-20% ballot stuffing is gas-lit as “baseless”. The price to exit Weird and regain Normal is: “Let our Constitutional Republic die.”
So just tell me when, and I’ll come. I don’t need a lawyer. Let’s skip a few steps, and meet.
Most cordially and respectfully,
Patrick M. Byrne
PS Note a word you have not read: “Trump”. That is because this was never about Donald Trump. He had made clear publicly he was not so keen on me, and I wouldn’t have said I wanted to go on a canoe trip with the man. That said, in our four hours together he was quite gracious towards me, and as I have made clear elsewhere, I liked him more than I expected. All of which has precisely 0 to do with the matter at hand, which is: Maricopa’s election was dirty. Given all the institutional vouching that has been done about it, what reason is there to believe in any election nationwide? Apparently the authorities are capable of being wrong, or tricked…. or are they in on it? Are the people who were behind the Maricopa Mischief taking our country over? That is to say, is this a coup?
PPS In September, 2006 (15 years ago this month), seven US senators from both parties had me come alone to Washington, DC so they could make an unusual request of me. In support of their request they showed me a letter and promised me that it would be available unconditionally years down the road when I needed it, on a “no-take-backs” basis. On that point, seven US Senators shook my hand and gave me their word as gentlemen. Six of those men are still alive and three are still Senators (still from both parties and even more prominent than before). Naturally I am not requesting they endorse or even comment on my recent activities, but now, 15 years after they made it, I am triggering their “no-take-back” promise: I respectfully request those three remaining Senators’ make that letter public. Doing so now would only be… Gentlemanly.

[vii] As a side narrative: once all the truth is out, and voters find out how RINO politicians cooperated with Democrats to throttle-down the Arizona Senate report, it is going to be another scandal in its own right. On RINOs.
[viii] NEWSFLASH: Anyone in Arizona who has been involved with these shenanigans and who has any sense is buying a burner phone, calling the Arizona AG’s office at 602-542-4266, and saying, “I was involved with the rigging of the Arizona election. I want to meet someone as soon as possible, even today. I may be under surveillance and would like to meet in a motel. I won’t bring a lawyer.” Prosecutors aren’t in the forgiveness business, but they can do mercy. As far as I can tell, there may have been as many as 200 people who played a role in the Maricopa Mischief: if even 1 of them goes in and talks, the whole thing will unravel, eventually reach you, and you will go down for hard time. So if you stay silent now, you are betting that not 1 in 200 people will squeal.
Good luck with that one, too.
