Here is a collection of articles detailing concerns. No, I don’t automatically agree with all of them (thanks for the question!). But I think there is enough here that it ought to be seriously investigated, which in the current crisis almost certainly means the ultimate involvement of the Supreme Court (as in 2000). Americans believe deeply in fair play. Republicans / conservatives lose with class (we don’t whine for four years or riot in the streets as the left does). We simply want a fair and honest election. And it increasingly looks like this election was not that, or at the very least may not have been fair and honest and legal.
Secondly: yes, the stories below are almost all from very conservative sources. But since the mainstream media (and even — seemingly — “conservative” Fox News) disallows and even censors even the possibility of fraud and seems to think it is impossible (after four years of refuted conspiracy theories about the supposed illegitimate 2016 election), then we have to read folks who are willing to entertain the possibility, due to mounting evidence. And they are almost all dyed-in-the-wool conservatives. The evidence presented below is not “nothing” (sorry).
It shouldn’t be necessary to note that a dismissal of a story / report / theory due only to the source from which it derives, is the genetic fallacy:
The genetic fallacy . . . is a fallacy of irrelevance that is based solely on someone’s or something’s history, origin, or source rather than its current meaning or context. This overlooks any difference to be found in the present situation, typically transferring the positive or negative esteem from the earlier context. In other words, a claim is ignored in favor of attacking or championing its source.
The fallacy therefore fails to assess the claim on its merit. The first criterion of a good argument is that the premises must have bearing on the truth or falsity of the claim in question. Genetic accounts of an issue may be true, and they may help illuminate the reasons why the issue has assumed its present form, but they are not conclusive in determining its merits.
As an historical example, I would remind readers that the sensationalistic National Enquirer: not exactly considered a stellar news source by either the political right or left, first broke the story of 2008 presidential Democratic nominee John Edwards’ secret love child with Rielle Hunter. Edwards later admitted it.
A second example was the infamous “blue dress” from Monica Lewinsky, that turned out to undeniably have President Bill Clinton’s semen on it. That story was broken in 1998 by The Drudge Report: a website then considered a fringe “far right” operation (it has since — ironically — actually become liberal).
Facts is facts. One must determine what they are. Sources of stories do not ultimately determine that. Fair-minded, serious, objective investigation does. And sometimes biased sources (we all have some bias in the end; it’s only a matter of degree) are actually able to do that.
As for my own political opinions and inclinations and biases, I would note that it takes a lot of chutzpah to accuse Trump of “refusing” to leave office, when Hillary invented the entire Russian conspiracy (with the help of the ridiculous farcical Steele dossier) to cover up her own complicity in Russian affairs, and to try to get Trump removed for treason, because she couldn’t admit why she lost. Then they invented the Ukrainian sham to try to remove him from office, when we had the tape of the conversation in question and he did nothing wrong whatsoever. But Biden and his son certainly did. Democrats love to project their own scandals onto Trump and Republicans. It’s diabolically clever.
Trump would have to be forcefully removed from office (so we’re told, and it’s assumed as GOSPEL TRVTH), when the Democrats — not able to admit defeat in 2016, concocted the entire Spygate scandal in order to remove him from office: employing the FBI and the CIA to do this (and previously Obama had also unethically and illegally weaponized the IRS, to go after conservatives). There was never any evidence of any of this BS. Remember the Mueller investigation and its conclusion?

“Jonathan Turley: America should welcome review for close counts” (The Hill, 11-7-20).
Turley is a Democrat, and always a solid voice of reason. He expresses exactly my view: if there is not a review, the country will become even more polarized, because a good portion of half of the voters will think the election was stolen. He writes:
Yet the public should welcome close scrutiny of these swing states. There are valid reasons to examine the figures based on the many unknowns in a new kind of election. The outcome will be determined by millions of mailed ballots in various states, some of which have never used such mailed ballots to this magnitude, and legitimate concerns were raised before the election. . . .We need a review of counts in critical states to resolve a crisis of faith. A recent survey found that almost half of Americans lack confidence their ballots will be counted fairly. A Harvard study also found that only half of young black voters believe their ballots are even counted. This lack of faith in the electoral process has been fueled by the shift to mailed ballots but builds on growing distrust of our political system. . . .
We neither listen to nor trust each other anymore. Almost half the country voted for Trump, even after years of negative media coverage. We need neither concessions of defeat nor declarations of victory. We need transparency so that whoever is the next president can govern with legitimacy. This is why the involvement of the courts is not a bad thing.
A friend of mine wrote on my Facebook page:
Some thoughts, based on the idea that election fraud is actually a fairly serious crime. With regard to the possibility of your neighbors being criminals, the following basic principles apply: 1) everyone, even Philadelphia or Arizona voter counters and politicians are entitled to the presumption of innocence. What that means is: 2) until a court decides figures in or another jurisdiction have committed fraud, they should be innocent in your eyes. 3) Now, if Republican party officials think they have reason to think there’s been fraud or a miscount, they have the right to take their case to court for the various remedies. 4) But if the courts reject these proposals, your response as a citizen should be to view them as innocent, and the results [as] legitimate, even if lots of uncorroborated reports are saying otherwise.
Now you may be wondering, how 2 and 3 coexist? how can Republicans bring suits if they have to view the election officials innocent until proven guilty? That’s easy: no. 3 applies to the few hundred or so Republican lawyers in the country whose responsibility it is to protect the interests of their clients. No. 2 applies to the rest of the American population. Adversarial system at work.
