Commentary: Pennsylvania Bombshell: Biden 99.4 Percent vs. Trump 0.6 Percent

by Paul Kengor


There are landslides and then there are landslides. There are lopsided votes and then there are lopsided votes. There are egregious examples of vote manipulation and then there are really egregious examples of vote manipulation. What surfaced during hearings in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on November 25, 2020 may set the standard for electoral outrageousness. An expert testifying to the Pennsylvania Senate flagged a batch of ballots that recorded some 570,000 votes for Joe Biden and only 3,200 for Donald Trump.

Yes, you read that correctly. That would equate to Joe Biden bagging 99.4% of that enormous chunk of votes. That one batch alone would have flipped the state to Biden.

This bombshell was dropped last Wednesday at the Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg. The November 25 hearings, which began at 12:30 p.m. and ran for nearly four hours, were convened at the request of Senator Doug Mastriano (R-Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties). It was sponsored by the Senate Majority Policy Committee, chaired by Sen. David Argall (R-Berks/Schuylkill). Mastriano has called what happened “unacceptable,” and has called for the resignation of Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar.

This particular gem was provided by Ret. Col. Phil Waldren, a former combat officer with a background in Army information and electronic warfare. Waldren, who testified along with Rudy Giuliani’s team, brought to the hearing his considerable expertise in analysis of election-data fraud. After Waldren presented his material, the chair opened the floor for questions. Rudy Giuliani went first, asking Waldren to clarify what his analytics team means when they talk about “spike anomalies” in voting patterns. These, as Waldren defines them, are “events where a numerical amount of votes are processed in a time period that is not feasible or mechanically possible under normal circumstances.” Waldren showed a chart with a shocking example of an apparent massive dump of votes for Joe Biden. Giuliani pressed Waldren for clarification regarding this unbelievable “Biden injection of votes.” Here’s the exchange:

Waldren: At the very beginning of the chart, where there’s a circle that says “On Election Day,” what that indicates is there’s a spike in loaded votes. 337,000-plus-or-minus-some votes that were added in there in one big batch. So that was an anomaly in the reporting. Normally you would expect to see a smooth curve going up, not any big spikes, that’s kind of what Greg was talking about, the anomalies of loading and uploading those votes. So that big spike that occurs there is a prime indicator of fraudulent voting.

Giuliani: And that’s [a total of] 604,000 votes in 90 minutes, is that right?

Waldren: Correct, this is [shows chart] 337,000 votes in that period of time.

Giuliani: And when you look at this entire curve, with all these spikes, can you calculate how much of a vote that accounted for for Biden, and how much for Trump?

Waldren: Close to 600,000. I think our figures were about 570-some-odd-thousand that all those spikes represent overtime.

Giuliani: For Biden?

Waldren: Correct.

Giuliani: And how much for Trump?

Waldren: I think it was a little over 3,200.

That’s roughly 570,000 votes for Biden and 3,200 for Trump. Biden scooped up this enormous batch by 99.4%. Incredible. Impossible. Scandalous.

When Waldren said this, the audience in the room gasped in shock. (To watch the exchange, and the entire hearing, click here. This exchange begins at 1:28:00.)

If what Waldren alleges here is true, then this would constitute one of the most insidious examples of documented voter fraud in the history of American presidential politics. This one spike alone would have erased Donald Trump’s 600,000-vote lead over Joe Biden late Tuesday night, November 3. Biden has reportedly won Pennsylvania by about 70,000 votes. This one swing would have done it. If this is true, then this episode alone might well constitute a smoking gun affirming a fraudulent election in Pennsylvania.

And yet, this electoral bombshell has been completely ignored by the mainstream press. The only national sources that I could find reporting it were RealClearPoliticsBreitbart, and Greg Kelly of Newsmax TV. The video link that I’ve provided is courtesy of Right Side Broadcasting Network a conservative source, filling a gap vacated by shameless mainstream “news” sources which avoided the hearing like the plague.

I ask: Is this accurate? What happened here? Who or what could have flipped votes like this? Who was responsible? How does this occur? Is this real? Does this not have the potential to remove Pennsylvania from Joe Biden’s column? At the least, should it make the Pennsylvania vote uncertifiable for either Biden or Trump?

And yet, this was just one of many striking claims by Waldren and others throughout the nearly four hours of hearings. Another stunner is that a total of 1,823,148 mail-in ballots were sent out by the Commonwealth, and yet 2,589,242 mail-in ballots were counted in the final vote tally for the state. Thus, there are some 766,000 mail-in ballots unaccounted for — that shouldn’t exist. As Rudy Giuliani noted, these 766,000 ballots “appeared from nowhere.” Neither the Pennsylvania secretary of state nor governor has explained this massive discrepancy.

Trump’s critics will want to dismiss the hearings as a partisan spectacle hosted by Pennsylvania Republican legislators. You can’t do that. A real journalist would see enough here to at least merit making some phone calls or sending a few emails. It’s not rocket science, press boys and girls. Do your jobs!

For the record, likewise egregious voter spikes have reportedly occurred in Michigan, Georgia, and Wisconsin. One analysis has targeted these four incidents of “voter updates”:

1. An update in Michigan listed as of 6:31AM Eastern Time on November 4th, 2020, which shows 141,258 votes for Joe Biden and 5,968 votes for Donald Trump

2. An update in Wisconsin listed as 3:42AM Central Time on November 4th, 2020, which shows 143,379 votes for Joe Biden and 25,163 votes for Donald Trump

3. A vote update in Georgia listed at 1:34AM Eastern Time on November 4th, 2020, which shows 136,155 votes for Joe Biden and 29,115 votes for Donald Trump

4. An update in Michigan listed as of 3:50AM Eastern Time on November 4th, 2020, which shows 54,497 votes for Joe Biden and 4,718 votes for Donald Trump

Likewise, these incidents could have flipped the respective state into Joe Biden’s win column. I could go on and on. See the affidavit of Russell Ramsland of Allied Security Systems detailing the numerous instances of “physical improbabilities” in the voting tabulations (and election results) in Michigan. If your mind and heart is open, you can’t but be shocked by this.

But Back to Pennsylvania, which is my focus here.

Could some reporter at some mainstream media outlet — one with a modicum of journalistic integrity and decency — pause to take some time to try to determine if these claims are accurate? Could just one “journalist” with access to Joe Biden ask for his reaction? How long would it take for Donald Trump to be grilled by a pack of ravenous reporters if Joe Biden had been potentially victimized like this?

And given that the media will not give these claims a hearing, could the U.S. Senate give them a hearing? There’s enough here that demands investigation.

Whether you like Donald Trump or not, whether you voted for him or not, this should concern every American. If this were Joe Biden being victimized, I would likewise protest. The media sure as heck would. This is not right.

9 Thoughts to “Commentary: Pennsylvania Bombshell: Biden 99.4 Percent vs. Trump 0.6 Percent”

  1. Jed Webber

    I see memes and Facebook posts all day long with these allegations, similar to the ones that Giuliani, Powell are saying in their tweets and press conferences. Some of the claims are just ludicrous. Others would be concerning – if they were true. But of the dozen or so that I looked into, every single one was debunked, explained or totally unsubstantiated. Literally every one!

    At some point it’s up to the people making the accusations to provide the proof. Or solid, undeniable evidence. At least enough grounds for lawsuits or criminal charges. But as the courts throw out case after case, governors and state officials from BOTH parties certify the results, and Trump’s own Attorney General says there’s nothing to prosecute (!), it’s clear they don’t have anything like that.

    I’m sure Joe Biden does NOT want half the population to believe he stole the election. But people are going to believe what they want to believe. And the people who most want to believe this are not going to be swayed by evidence. Will someone who thinks that Bill Barr and the governor of Georgia are in cahoots with Venezuelan socialists to help Democrats steal the presidency accept the results of any DOJ investigation? Not likely! It’s not on Biden to jump through hoops to prove he’s innocent of every wild accusation. And even if he did, it wouldn’t end. They would just make more.

    What’s sad in all this is that decent and well-meaning Trump supporters are being conned. And faith in American democracy is being damaged.

    The 1,823,148 mail-in ballots number is from the Pennsylvania primary. Over three million ballots were sent out in the general election. Five minutes of fact-checking will verify this easily.

    Liberals & liberal republicans can defend the media and this election all they want, but the numbers and irregularities scream rigged. You have a senile candidate who couldn’t complete an entire sentence without getting lost, and stayed hid during the campaign, and a candied for VP who couldn’t even garner 2% of the vote in the primary, beating a person who could fill stadium after stadium by this margin isn’t reality. Ray Charles could look things over and see fraud. He did better among minorities this election, but lost by this margin?

    1. Jed Webber

      You do know that Biden CHOSE not to have rallies, don’t you? (Unlike Trump, he preferred NOT to spread disease and kill his own supporters!) Also, in the debates Americans saw a Biden who could not only speak in complete sentences, but by most accounts (and polls) outperformed Trump three times! Biden didn’t need a big cult following to win, he just had to NOT be Trump! The energy on the Democratic side was not behind Biden personally, but it was for replacing Trump. If you want to talk about crowds, the Women’s March, March for Our Lives , and Black Lives Matter marches all brought out hundreds of thousands of people, and a lot of their protests were directed at Trump.

      Basically, your argument seems to be that the numbers just “feel wrong” to you, so there must be fraud! To me, it feels wrong that it was even close. I can’t believe that 73 million people voted for the guy that gave us the highest COVID death toll in the world! Who could have saved tens of thousands of lives if he followed the science and listened to medical experts, and thousands more if he just wore a damn mask! But our opinions and feelings are not evidence of anything! Trump’s team has not come close to showing any kind of widespread or organized fraud by anyone on the Dem side. In fact, all the evidence so far points against it! That’s why Republican AND Democratic judges have been throwing out his cases and Republican governors and election officials have been certifying the results.

    Politifact is a joke just like snopes.
    If anyone believes politifact, I have some oceanfront property in Montana for sale. Maybe we could work out a deal.

    1. Jed Webber

      I’m not just taking Poilitifact”s word for it. They happened to have an explanation for the first so-called “irregularity” I checked. They quoted sources and provided links, so you can check them yourself. (A little more fact-checking would do Trump supporters well; cause right now they’re passing around a lot of nonsense long after it’s been debunked. )

  5. Jed Webber

    Journalists in the mainstream media HAVE been running down these claims, and over and over again they have been shown to be false or have legitimate explanations. For example, searching just one of the four “irregularities” listed above brings me here:

    Did you make any effort to look into the background or credentials of the “expert” ,Col. Waldren, whose claims you cite so credulously? Does he actually have expertise in cybersecurity, statistical analysis, or election fraud? Because the state election data shows no “batch” of votes that came in 570k for Trump to 3,200 for Biden. Waldren is clearly selecting and combining the numbers from various vote reports according to some methodology of his own to create that figure. Does that mean he is wrong? No. But his rationale needs to be clearly explained. In fact, in the early morning of Nov. 4, both Trump ‘sand Biden’s vote totals in PA rose by nearly a million each, suggesting the count was far less one-sided.

    1. Wayne Altman

      Jed, That is absolute horse feathers.. NO ONE in the media is “running anything down” and REFUSE to ask the right people ANY questions about any of this.
      They REFUSE to have the people making claims on their programs AND refuse to ask the correct questions of anyone they DO have on. It is an echo chamber on the MSM.
      So stop adding to the fake media, and answer the questions being posed. Why would Joe Biden want to be President in a country that HALF of the population believes he is NOT the winner of the election? It would behoove Joe to go ABOVE AND FAR BEYOND proving he is the rightful President. If he does not it will be a violent four years.

    I wonder if somebody won the lottery 10 times in a row, would the mainstream media pick it up as a story? The answer is, only if it were a conservative who won. Then they’d instantly all become modern day Ronald Fishers, proclaiming that is statistically impossible and label it as obvious fraud!
