2000 Mules Update: Big Audience Despite Media Blackout
I’d venture to say that someone who watches only mainstream media might not have even heard of the eye-opening new film, 2000 Mules. Sorry to say, that’s likely true even if they watch FOX News and Newsmax, as those audiences are hearing nary a mention of it either. (That perplexing fact might be a story for another time. Needless to say, the Left is loving it.)
But even with that, Dinesh D’Souza’s new documentary, which disrupts the mantra that the 2020 election was “the cleanest, safest, and most secure election in American history,” has been doing gangbusters business at the box office and on home video since its debut.
Gangbusters Business — a Must-See
If you haven’t yet seen it, this link will tell you all the ways you can. It is an absolute must-see, as anyone who has watched it and is not an idiot will tell you.
On Rumble, even though it premiered at noon on Saturday, May 7, it did well enough to be in the top ten for the weekend of May 6 to May 8. That is marvelous for a production that’s considered a “niche” movie — even one that hasn’t been suppressed on social media the way this has.
My writing team tried to see it in a theater in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, where it debuted the previous week, but it was largely sold out, and they had to wait until Saturday for the streaming premiere.
The Frustrated “Fact”-Checkers
The so-called “fact”-checks released by the propagandists at PolitiFact and the Associated Press have been — to phrase our assessment with a politeness they don’t deserve — remarkably inadequate. But, yes, that’s the absolute best they or any debunker can do. They must be ripping out their hair in fistfuls, because when confronted by evidence like this, there’s only so much they can do to try to tear it down. In case you missed our commentary about that, here’s the link.
An Old Story Comes Into Focus
Speaking of election fraud — and, by the way, we intend to speak of it many times before the next election — we came across a news story from the New York Post in August 2020 (note: well before the 2020 election) called “Confessions of a Voter Fraud: I was a master at fixing mail-in ballots.” Viewed in light of the revelations in 2000 Mules, this story really comes into focus now.
Reporter Jon Levine interviewed a top Democrat operative who said he’d been doing it on a grand scale for decades. This person, speaking anonymously because he feared prosecution, said fraud was “more the rule than the exception.” And in the months leading into the 2020 election, with mail-in balloting being greatly expanded, (ostensibly) because of COVID, this meant there would be much more fraud.
“An election that is swayed by 500 votes, 1,000 votes — it can make a difference,” this tipster said. “It could be enough to flip states.”
It’s a big operation. He said he had not only altered ballots himself but had led teams, mentoring at least 20 operatives who were active in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, which, of course, would turn out to be one of the battleground states at issue on Election Day 2020.
This operative, who said he’d been a Bernie Sanders supporter and no longer had a stake, said he’d come forward in the hope that states would fix their glaring security problems with mail-in ballots, because November 3 was going to be “a (bleeping) war.” I wonder if he had any idea then how bad it was going to get.
The Dirty Details of a Big Operation
The Post includes his descriptions of how election-riggers do their stuff. For example, they can just make copies of the ballot itself, but they have to collect actual envelopes, because it’s not possible to recreate those. That’s where vote harvesters come in, going from house to house, “helping” people by mailing their ballots for them, but steaming them open and using the real envelopes to mail the phony ballots. These they would “sprinkle” around numerous mailboxes in town.
He said sometimes postal employees are in on it. If they don’t like Trump, for example, and they work in an area that’s predominantly GOP, they can just “lose” those ballots. They can either dump all the mail in the trash or, if they have time, sift through their mail for ballots, and throw the ballots in the trash. (Or I would think they could take them to be steamed open if more envelopes are needed.)

Then, of course, there are the nursing homes. We’ve discussed how that works, but the Post article provides details.
Sometimes, if they’re in a state that doesn’t require ID, operatives will even go to polling places and vote in person. They go through publicly available information to find the names of registered voters who routinely skip elections, and vote using those names.
They also buy the votes of homeless people. This tipster went on to say that Michael Bloomberg’s campaign spent roughly $174 per vote to win his third term as New York mayor. He likened this effort to a mafia organization, with the candidate himself typically kept in the dark about the details, to maintain “plausible deniability.”
This particular political insider even took credit for a helpful little idea that he says was put into practice: bending one corner of the ballot, where the signature appeared, to signal to Democrat Board of Election counters that this was one of “their” ballots and to let it go through.
The Problem is Ongoing
We learn from this story that systemized election fraud has been going on for a very long time, mostly to affect smaller and/or close races, but also that now, with the expanded use of mail-in ballots, the problem is growing, affecting elections on a larger scale. Just this weekend, Christina Repaci was walking her dog in East Hollywood and came upon something interesting sitting on the sidewalk: an entire box full of ballots.
These 104 unopened mail-in ballots were in a U.S. Postal Service box, just abandoned there on the sidewalk. Sacredness of the vote, indeed.
Ms. Repaci didn’t know what to do about this; it was only thanks to her persistence that an official picked up these ballots from her. Of course, the chain of custody had long since been shot. The registrar’s office said not to worry, they’ve reissued ballots to all the people affected. But what if someone not quite as conscientious as Ms. Repaci had found the ballots and used them for, I don’t know, bird cage liners?
