Andy Martin: The New York Times lies when it says President Trump’s voter fraud claims are a “fantasy”
The New York times has accused President Trump of engaging in “fantasy” when Trump says voter fraud is a major problem. Conservative New Hampshire Republican Party activist Andy Martin shows how Democratic election fraud cheated President Trump out of
electoral votes in November, and how U. S.
Senator Kelly Ayotte was cheated out of reelection, almost certainly on the
basis of fraudulent Massachusetts
and other out-of-state votes. Andy says Trump is not engaging in fantasy
accusations. Rather, the New York Times and the liberal media and cable TV
bobbleheads are the ones who are lying.

(Near the Winter White House,
) ( Florida January 30, 2017)
I’m temporarily based near the Winter White House in
awaiting the arrival of President Trump next weekend. But don’t expect me to
vote here based on my temporary presence. Sadly, in my home state of New
Hampshire, thousands of illegal, out-of-state voters
robbed now-President Donald Trump and Senator Kelly Ayotte of victory in
On Saturday, the New York Times carried a lead editorial claiming President Donald Trump’s voter fraud claims were a “fantasy” (please see link #1 below). The New York Times was lying. As an institution that claims to be concerned with factual accuracy, the Times was wrong on the facts, wrong on the law and wrong on “reality.”
As someone who has spent a lifetime fighting political corruption and voter fraud, I am a legitimate expert on the topic. After reading my remarks I hope you will agree that the Times, not Trump, is living in a dream world when it comes to voter fraud.
Fraudulent voting in
in November almost certainly cost Senator Kelly Ayotte her U. S. Senate seat
and President Trump my state’s electoral votes. Below I will provide the
evidence to support my opinion.
The reason Democrats pretend that vote fraud does not exist is because the dominance of the Democratic Party in big cities is based, in part, on election fraud. So Democrats and their supporters in the media have a vested interest in deflecting Trump’s Executive Order calling for an investigation.
1. If you ask the wrong question you will get the wrong answer
Donald Trump is not a “detail” man when it comes to politics. He is not a researcher. But he has an uncanny sense of what is wrong and what is right with our society. He also has common sense. Trump began making vote fraud claims during the 2016 election. He was spot on.
A. The media’s response to Trump’s accusations has been to claim there is “no evidence” to support his claims. But why is there no evidence? Because the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations made no efforts to collect the evidence or to mandate that the states conduct authentication tests on their voter records. So it’s easy to accuse Trump and others of lacking “evidence” when the government itself is suppressing collection of that evidence.
B. When the media focuses on “vote fraud” they invariably suggest that vote fraud involves fraudulent voting on Election Day, that is, persons who vote under another person’s name. Actually, vote fraud has many prongs and manifestations. Voter impersonation is probably one of the least significant. It is actually true that few people show up on Election Day and misrepresent their identity. But voter impersonation, while a serious crime, is a minute part of the problem. What the media try to accomplish by diminishing vote fraud and limiting that fraud to one category is to point to a “tree” instead of to the “forest” of fraud.
C. The real problem with fraudulent voting arises out of non-citizen voting. Only lawful
Citizens can vote in federal elections. Yet the Democratic Party establishment,
and the Clinton and Obama administrations, have systematically prevented any
inquiry into the citizenship of registered voters. The result is that in our
most populous states with a massive legal and illegal immigrant presence,
non-citizen voting is unmonitored, unregulated and uncounted.
D. In addition to non-citizen voting, there are many other forms of voting abuse. Dead voters “voting,” and multi-state voting are a couple of serious problems, please see links #2 - #4 below.
experience with voter fraud New Hampshire
allows same day voter registration, thousands of people turn up without even
having made the effort to obtain a local New Hampshire
driver license or ID. And yet they want to vote. Many of these people - who
curiously under New Hampshire law
are entitled to vote with an out-of-state ID - then give erroneous addresses to
election officials. Confirmation letters are returned (please see link #5
For the November election
campaign officials attempted to have Massachusetts
residents temporarily living in New Hampshire
vote illegally in New Hampshire;
thousands of them, mostly out-of-state students, did. Senator Ayotte lost by
1,000 votes. Ayotte was almost certainly cheated out of reelection by illegal
out-of-state voters. Curiously, Ayotte did not demand a recount or challenge
Trump also lost
by a narrow margin. Since 6,000 people used out-of-state ID’s to vote, Trump
can plausibly claim that he was cheated out of New
Hampshire’s electoral votes by illegal Massachusetts
voters crossing state lines without any lawful domicile in New
Hampshire and casting fraudulent votes.
We can also see “confusing questions” by local media confusing the facts to present a distorted picture. When asked if
Hampshire had a false impersonation voting problem, Secretary
of State Bill Gardner correctly said “no.” But he then went on to detail how thousands
of people without any New Hampshire ID voted, and how the addresses they gave
resulted in returned mail. If giving a false address isn’t fraud, what is? (please
see link #5)
Fraudulent same-day registrations, and returned confirmation letters after Election Day, are a chronic problem in
Hampshire. The Union Leader newspaper says Democrats
want to encourage illegal voting by non-residents of New
Hampshire, please see link #5 (second entry). No
surprise there. Although he was attacked for making the same accusation,
Governor Sununu also accused Massachusetts voters of crossing over to New
Hampshire, please see link #5 (third entry). The Democrats are openly engaging
in what politicians call “honest graft.”
My personal opinion is that people without a valid New Hampshire ID should not be allowed to vote. Just in the Trump and Ayotte races, illegal voters almost certainly determined the outcome due to a quirk of federal law. Under the Motor Voter Act, to retain an exception from compliance
Hampshire is required to allow same-day Election Day registration,
please see link #6 below.
newly elected Governor Chris Sununu is calling for election law changes, and State
Representative David Bates wants to create a photo data base of voters who lack
a local ID, please see link #7. Why not just ban the practice entirely? (Full disclosure:
Secretary of State Bill Gardner and I were on the same side in a lawsuit in , opposing illegal voting in Strafford
Hampshire by persons whose domicile was in another
state. Democratic Party operatives supported illegal voting by out-of-state
3. Vote fraud across the states
Let me start with a concession: reasonable people can disagree over the total amount of vote fraud and voter intimidation because we do not have hard evidence to confirm the ultimate number. But
investigators, for example, found evidence of illegal voting by both illegal
and legal aliens (who are not entitled to vote). Please see link #8.
fraud is an art. Dead voters? Check? Impersonation voting? Check. Improperly
influencing senior citizens in nursing homes to vote Democratic? Check. A good
friend of mine was an assistant attorney general in a Republican-held office at
the time. He was posted by his political organization to monitor a precinct on
Election Day. There was massive vote fraud by Democratic party precinct
workers. I could go on and on. Chicago
vote fraud elected President John Kennedy in 1960. Over fifty years later the
city is still an electoral cesspool.
4. Why would anyone vote illegally when legal voters do not?
One of the basic memes of liberal media commentators is that “we try to hard to get legal voters to vote, and only 50% show up, so why would an ineligible voter turn up on Election Day?” There are many reasons. Crowd mentality has a powerful psychological impact on individual behavior. Go to church on almost any Sunday and the pews are largely empty. And yet these same empty churches are filled to overcapacity on Christmas Eve and Easter Sunday. The impact of public or community psychology on ineligible voters making an effort to turn up on Election Day is thus not surprising. Individuals respond to public pressure and peer behavior.
Under the Motor Voter Act, registering to vote is a no-brainer. You check a couple of boxes and registration is automatically performed for you. But are these motor voter registrants or welfare recipients actually legal
Citizens? No one knows. All efforts to find out have been stymied by Democratic
5. What are my suggestions?
A. I like
Hampshire’s approach. We do not make it easy to vote
early. Absentee voting is limited and early voting is not allowed. So people
actually show up on Election Day and vote! What a surprise. People who make the
effort to vote show genuine interest. They are certainly not voting in late September
or early October when the election campaign is in its early stages.
B. Because the federal government has an interest in voting, see the federal Motor Voter Act (link #6 below), Congress could require states to update voter data bases by (i) requiring new registrants to establish citizenship and/or (ii) requiring states to verify that existing voters were citizens. There would be an initial burden, but people could be assisted to comply.
C. Whatever approach is ultimately adopted, we must mandate that only lawful
Citizens participate in our federal elections. Period. We must also mandate
that a person can only be registered to vote in one location, which is that
person’s domicile, usually determined by a driver license. Showing up to
register or vote with an out of state ID is an insult to ballot integrity. And,
as we have seen in just one state, in just one election, voter fraud and
manipulation in November cost Trump New Hampshire’s votes and elected an
illegal U. S. Senator.
By now, I hope you agree with me that President Trump is “on to something” when he claims voter fraud is a serious problem and wants an investigation (please see link #9 below). I have just shown how he was cheated out of
New Hampshire’s votes by
Clintonista election corruption. And, in my opinion, Senator Kelly Ayotte was also
cheated out of her reelection by voting trickery and fraud.
That’s why I believe the New York Times is lying. What happened in
happened in other states, particularly and New York,
Popular vote anyone? I do not trust the numbers and neither should you. Instead
of ridiculing Trump, the media should be endorsing Trump’s call for an
investigation. That call will never come. Liberal election fraud and liberal
state voter fraud is as American as apple pie. Put another way, the media are
not about to upset the liberals’ vote fraud applecart.
