World-renowned physicist to discuss election integrity in Vermont

A world-renowned physicist-turned-public speaker on election integrity matters, Dr. Douglas G. Frank, is coming to South Burlington on Jan. 14 to speak on issues concerning how to protect and improve our elections.

Frank’s impressive academic credentials deal mostly with science and physics. Dr. Frank is “a world-renowned physicist with 60 peer-reviewed scientific publications, including cover and feature articles in the world’s leading scientific journals,” according to a news release by Vermont Grassroots.

Dr. Douglas G. Frank

His doctorate is in surface-electroanalytical chemistry, which is an area of study that combines chemistry and physics. It involves “the manipulation and analysis of molecules on surfaces.” By 1996, Frank’s work contributed to the improved manufacturing of electron microscopes, laser scanners, and precision manufacturing and control devices.

After the 2020 election Frank turned his scientific focus to data analysis efforts on the 2020 presidential election. He will discuss his findings when he visits Vermont in January.

“By analyzing election and voter registration data, Dr. Frank is able to demonstrate that the 2020 general election was not honest and fair and that major problems still remain,” the news release states. “Since December 2020, Dr. Frank has worked ceaselessly for election integrity and reform with grassroots teams in over 40 states.

“He has met with Secretaries of State, State Attorneys General, dozens of legislators, and hundreds of local election officials to improve election integrity. Dr. Frank was featured in Mike Lindell’s documentaries ‘Scientific Proof’ and ‘Absolute Interference.'”

Frank’s talk will offer details of evidence of recent election fraud, but he will also focus on steps that concerned citizens can take to “create a ground game to effect positive change.”

National headlines on allegations of election fraud continue to appear on news sites since the 2020 and 2022 national elections. One of the latest examples is Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who filed a 68-page lawsuit last week against Arizona’s election officials, contesting the 2022 results for her race against Democrat opponent Katie Hobbs. Lake reportedly trailed Hobbs by less than 1% of the tallied votes.

In her lawsuit, Lake cites a Rasmussen Poll that showed 72% of Americans agreed with her statement that Arizona “botched” their gubernatorial election. Polls conducted on the 2020 presidential election also by Rasmussen have yielded similar results, illustrating an overall distrust in federal elections among the general public.

Some conservative commentators are growing frustrated with the lack of progress in undoing controversial election policies — a lack of ID requirements, universal mail-in ballots, outdated voter rolls — that contributed to doubts about the last two election cycles.

“Their lack of spine and urgency to protest and legally challenge numerous election irregularities emboldened our ‘friends’ across the aisle to be more blatant with election shenanigans,” Robin Itzler wrote in the American Thinker on Sunday. “The proof is Arizona’s gubernatorial election.”

A poll by the Trafalgar Group conducted about a week after this year’s midterms showed that Democrats mostly think elections are going OK, whereas a nearly identical percentage of Republicans do not.

Among Democrats, 75.1% strongly trust [the current election process], 15.7% of somewhat trust, 6.1% somewhat distrust, and 3.1% strongly distrust. Those trends largely reverse for the GOP, the results are 10.3% strongly trust, 16.5% of somewhat trust, 30.8% somewhat distrust, and 42.4% strongly distrust the elections.

Dr. Frank will be in South Burlington 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 14 at the Vibrant Church. Attendees of the event are encourage to make a minimum $10 donation. More information on the event can be found at the Vermont Grassroots website.

  1. Great news! In the meantime everyone should be writing letters to the Supreme Court in support of Brunson v. Adams.

    Law professor Tim Canova, a Democrat who had his election stolen when he ran against Debbie Wasserman Schulz, wrote an excellent article explaining the case:

    Tim Canova: Supreme Court Considers Case Seeking to Overturn 2020 Presidential Election

    While there has been much public attention on the U.S. Supreme Court’s present consideration of the “independent state legislature” theory in Moore v. Harper involving North Carolina’s redistricting, that case would not immediately upend the 2020 Presidential Election. In contrast, a little-known case that appeared recently on the Court docket could do just that. The case of Brunson v. Adams, not even reported in the mainstream media, was filed pro se by ordinary American citizens – four brothers from Utah — seeking the removal of President Biden and Vice President Harris, along with 291 U.S. Representatives and 94 U.S. Senators who voted to certify the Electors to the Electoral College on January 6, 2021 without first investigating serious allegations of election fraud in half a dozen states and foreign election interference and breach of national security in the 2020 Presidential Election. The outcome of such relief would presumably be to restore Donald Trump to the presidency.

    The important national security interests implicated in this case allowed the Brunsons to bypass an appeal that was frozen at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit and get the case to the Supreme Court which has now scheduled a hearing for January 6, 2023. The Brunson Petition for a Writ of Certiorari would require the votes of only four Justices to move the case forward.

    It seems astounding that the Court would wade into such waters two years to the day after the Congressional vote to install Joe Biden as President. But these are not normal times. Democrats may well push legislation in this month’s lame duck session of Congress to impose term limits and a mandatory retirement age for Justices, and thereby open the door to packing the Court. Such a course would seem to be clear violations of Article III, Section 1 of the Constitution which provides that Justices “shall hold their Offices during good Behavior.” In addition to such institutional threats to the Supreme Court, several Justices and their families have been living under constant threats to their personal security since the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

    Perhaps these institutional and security threats have provided powerful incentives for the Court to put Brunson v. Adams on its dockets as a shield to deter any efforts by the lame duck Congress to infringe on the Court’s independence. Or perhaps conservatives on the Court are serious about using the Brunson case as a sword to remove public officials who they believe have violated their constitutional Oaths of office by rubber-stamping Electors on Jan. 6th without first conducting any investigation of serious allegations of election fraud and foreign election interference.

    Moreover, recent weeks have brought a cascade of news suggesting the likelihood of an impending constitutional crisis that could be difficult to resolve without the Court’s intervention. It is now clear that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was colluding with social media giants Twitter and Facebook to censor news of Hunter Biden’s laptop in the weeks leading up to the 2020 election – a most egregious First Amendment violation intended to rig the election outcome and perhaps to install an unaccountable and criminal puppet government. Meanwhile, the January 6th committee may soon send a criminal referral to the Justice Department to arrest President Trump even though his reinstated tweets are a reminder that he was not calling for insurrection but for peaceful protest on January 6th. More recently, the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) was reportedly working with Big Tech to censor election critics.

    Supreme Court Justices may well see these approaching storm clouds and conclude that the Court’s intervention is necessary to prevent larger civil unrest resulting from constitutional violations that are undermining public trust and confidence in the outcomes of both the 2020 and 2022 elections. When criminals break the law — state and federal statutes — to rig an election, we are dependent on prosecutions by law enforcement agencies that have sadly become politicized and complicit. When they break the Constitution — the supreme law of the land — to rig an election, the only recourse may be the Supreme Court or military tribunals.

    As the Brunson lawsuit argues, all of Congress was put on notice prior to its January 6th vote by more than a hundred of its own members detailing serious allegations of election frauds and calling for creation of an electoral commission to investigate the allegations.

    Moreover, the Office of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) was required to submit a report on foreign threats to the 2020 Presidential election by December 18, 2020. That deadline was set by executive order and by Congress itself. When December 18th came and went without ODNI submitting its report, Congress should have started asking questions and investigating. In fact, DNI John Ratcliffe announced on that day that the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies he was overseeing had found evidence of foreign election interference but were split as to its significance and whether such breach of national security was sufficient to overturn the outcome of the election. And yet there was no action whatsoever by Congress, no inquiry and no investigation. Instead, Congress approved the possibly fraudulent election results on January 6th without asking any questions of the DNI and the Intelligence Community.

    When the results of the 1876 presidential election were in doubt, Congress created a special Electoral Commission made up of five House members, five Senators, and five Supreme Court Justices to investigate. In contrast, in early 2021 Congress had nearly two weeks to investigate before the January 20th date of the Presidential Inauguration. Had Congress waited even just one more day to January 7th, they would have received the long-awaited ODNI report reflecting a split in the Intelligence Community and the DNI’s own conclusion that the People’s Republic of China had interfered to influence the outcome of the presidential election. As Dr. Barry A. Zulauf, the Analytic Ombudsman for the Intelligence Community, concluded at the time, the Intelligence Community shamefully delayed their findings until after the January 6th Electoral College certification by Congress because of their political disagreements with the Trump administration. This paints a picture of collusion and conspiracy involving members of Congress and U.S. intelligence agencies to coverup evidence of foreign election interference and constituting the crime of High Treason.

    The Brunson lawsuit does not claim the election was stolen, merely that a large majority of Congress, by failing to investigate such serious allegations of election rigging and breaches of national security, violated their Oaths to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic – an Oath also taken by Supreme Court Justices and members of the U.S. military.

    The fact that the Brunson case has made it to the Court’s docket suggests profound concerns about a lawless January 6th Congressional committee, politicized federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies, and major constitutional violations intended to overthrow an elected government by manipulating the outcome of the presidential election.

    Brunson v. Adams Archive with SCOTUS letter-writing instructions at bottom of page here:

  2. Absolutely agree with students voting in their home town. They are not permanent residents here and are still claimed as dependents for tax purposes on the parents tax forms.

    But expecting students to go home to vote doesn’t make sense though. For one thing they would miss too much class time, another the expense….

    Seems mail in voting could and should work students. It works for soldiers in the field.

  3. We have no election integrity in Vermont, everyone knows it, with the ” Publisher
    Clearing House ” ballot handouts, yes it’s a scam…….. everyone knows it except,
    Jim Condos………..

    If you want ” integrity ” in voting, it’s voting day with an ID, if you can’t make it to the
    polls then you ” request ” an absentee ballot…..No day of sign up, and just because
    you attend school here, you are not a citizen if you’re paying an “out of state” tuition,
    you need to go Vote in your home state, Voting always was a pretty simple process
    until the DemocRATs needed to stay in power !!
