How Fb’s Mark Zuckerberg Rigged the 2020 Election to Defeat Trump


Mark Zuckerberg is greatest recognized for creating and main Fb, an organization that’s made him one of many wealthiest males on the earth. With an estimated value of $80 billion, he poured a whole bunch of thousands and thousands of his fortune into the 2020 election.

Right here’s the factor: You in all probability had no thought on the time Zuckerberg was influencing the end result of probably the most contentious presidential election in our lifetime. That’s as a result of we didn’t be taught the true extent of Zuckerberg’s monetary contributions till the voting already occurred.

Now, because of a brand new 40-minute documentary movie from Residents United Productions, we all know what he did and easy methods to forestall it from taking place once more.

Residents United President David Bossie hosts and narrates the movie, “Rigged: The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump.” He joins “The Every day Sign Podcast” with director Jason Killian Meath. Hearken to the total present or learn a frivolously edited transcript of our interview beneath.

Rob Bluey: David, let’s begin with you. How did Mark Zuckerberg assist defeat Donald Trump, and the way did he get away with it?

David Bossie: Such an ideal query. What most individuals don’t know, and I might assume that most individuals listening to this proper now don’t know, is that Mark Zuckerberg spent $400 million within the 2020 election cycle, and he spent it particularly in simply the final a number of months of the marketing campaign via nonprofits.

He despatched his cash via the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which is he and his spouse’s operation. They despatched the cash to those two very hardcore left-wing organizations, the Heart for Tech and Civic Life and one different.

CTCL, the Heart for Tech and Civic Life, obtained about $327 million. Simply to place it in perspective, their finances in 2019 was $1 million. Their finances for 2020 was $328 million. It’s simply an unimaginable circulation of cash that got here in there.

Their cash went out in these grants to state and native election officers. They mainly used that cash for an enormous, large Democrat get-out-the-vote effort utilizing the drop containers and mail-in ballots and absentee poll applications to generate votes for Joe Biden.

I submit that if Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t spend the $400 million within the final three or 4 months of the marketing campaign, Joe Biden doesn’t win.

Bluey: What was it that impressed you to make this movie? We’ve heard President Trump speak concerning the stolen election. We’ve had different individuals speak about a rigged election. This will need to have been an enormous enterprise in your half to wade via paperwork and data that many individuals within the legacy media would have simply simply ignored.

Bossie: Yeah, they’ve, very like the Hunter Biden laptop computer story. They suppress these tales. They don’t need to inform the tales. They don’t cowl the tales. These are essential points. The biased company media that we reside in and with in the present day, they determine what the American individuals know and what they don’t know.

Very similar to half of America that voted and supported Donald Trump, I used to be pissed off, and I felt like there wanted to be a solution to this thirst on the market in America, this ardour that has made election integrity, which is sort of a boring topic and most of the people don’t care about it.

It’s not within the prime 5 or prime 10 points in America while you have a look at the polling information. Election integrity is now on the prime of polls particularly Republican major voters. They don’t need to vote for someone who will not be going to take a place to reply and resolve the issues of what occurred up to now.

So with that query on the market and my relationship with President Trump that has been longstanding, we determined that we’d attempt to take this on. It was solely via the method of creating it did we perceive the precise narrative.

That is my third movie with Jason Meath. His potential to place this collectively, his potential to see the narrative and that forest via the bushes as a result of it’s so detail-oriented. However you must preserve it attention-grabbing and excessive degree whereas on the similar time giving them the granular element that’s mandatory for individuals to grasp and really feel like they took away one thing. It’s an actual artwork type, and it’s actually laborious to do. My writing associate on this, Jason Meath, did an incredible job on it.

Bluey: Jason, how can you uncover the data that’s featured within the movie?

Jason Killian Meath: I at all times know that after I’m going into certainly one of these initiatives, it’s going to be meticulously researched and sourced, and we aren’t going to go away something to likelihood and going to be very thorough. And that’s actually the case right here.

I obtained a name from Dave, I might say slightly bit earlier than Thanksgiving final 12 months. And he instructed me about this Mark Zuckerberg cash. I needed to Google it as a result of I had possibly heard slightly bit about, however the mainstream press actually simply doesn’t cowl this.

I began researching it. We began speaking, as we had been planning the pre-production of the movie, extra information had been popping out about this as a result of there’re quite a few investigations and varied people in varied election integrity outfits that had been this. Scott Walter’s Capital Analysis Heart was varied elements of the Zuckerberg-funded cash that went into the election.

And so I began studying just about similtaneously making the movie, what we had been actually speaking about and what actually had transpired in 2020. And the extra I discovered, actually the extra shocked I used to be and actually knew that we had a narrative right here that wanted to get out.

There’s been speak about this. There was a ebook referred to as “Rigged” as effectively that detailed a few of this and it was superb. So we had been in a position to comply with a number of the tax filings, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and CTCL had been placing on the market that additionally helped information us as to the place this cash was distributed.

Bluey: It’s a fascinating movie. It’s actually useful for lots of our Every day Sign listeners and our viewers who asks us the entire time for this proof, and now you’ve given them an actual blockbuster movie to try this. President Trump was at your premier at Mar-a-Lago. He additionally stars within the movie. Who’re a number of the different individuals who you interviewed, and what data do you convey to gentle within the movie itself?

Bossie: People can go to rigged2020.com, and you’ll stream it on any gadget anyplace on the earth at any time. I urge you try this. You’ll be able to go there simply to look at the trailer. You’ll be able to watch and skim concerning the movie.

You’ll be able to study our unimaginable forged from Ken Blackwell to Ken Cuccinelli to Cleta Mitchell to Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, Congressman Jody Hice. We now have Newt Gingrich and Kellyanne Conway, and naturally, President Trump within the movie. We now have Michael Gableman, who’s a former Supreme Courtroom justice in Wisconsin and the particular counsel appointed by the state legislature, conducting his investigation. It’s a actually star-studded forged. The interviews and the narrative that we had been in a position to inform via these interviews actually may be very highly effective.

Then, in fact, the documentation of it. We gained entry to this data not via some other means apart from the Heart for Tech and Civic Life’s personal IRS 990 kinds, which had been simply filed this January, so it’s solely been three or 4 months since we’ve had actually entry to the element of it.

In these tax returns in Wisconsin, for instance, it confirmed grants to Kenosha of $860,000, $1.1 million to each Inexperienced Bay and Madison, $1.7 million to Racine, and $3.4 million to Milwaukee. These are three Democrat strongholds within the state. It was about 85% of the cash, of Zuckerberg’s cash that within the state went to Biden-controlled districts.

By the way in which, the Zuckerberg defenders say {that a} majority of the grants went to Trump-leaning counties. I don’t care about that. That could be true. It is probably not true. However $5,000 and $10,000 grants don’t change an election. What modifications an election are the 162 grants that we uncovered that totaled $272 million, and 92% of that cash went to Biden districts. That’s placing your thumb on the dimensions of an election.

Bluey: Jason, when the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative would make these donations that you just speak of, what was the said goal for doing so, and the way was that cash really spent?

Meath: Within the tax submitting, it’s written you must declare what you’re spending the cash for. It’s a part of the legislation. You’ve received to say the place’s this cash going. And it’s very clear, we have now it within the movie, on their tax submitting it stated it’s to conduct secure elections throughout the COVID-19.

And so what’s a secure election? You’d assume PPE and gloves and issues like that to maintain you secure from getting COVID. However that isn’t in any respect what the cash was spent for and possibly a really small proportion. I believe we heard figures of three%, 6% one thing alongside these strains, it went to any PPE or COVID safety.

The majority of the cash, the overwhelming majority, the a whole bunch of thousands and thousands of the cash, went to get-out-the-vote operations.

Bluey: Who’re a number of the different main gamers concerned on this scheme notably those that have a protracted historical past in Democrat politics?

Bossie: That’s an ideal query. The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is only a repository of their money—actually in order that they can provide it out. Within the film, we speak about different locations that they offer to, all left-wing: the Obama Basis, the Clinton Basis. Many, most of the who’s who of the left wing, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative donates to.

The one that is the chief strategist for the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is David Plouffe. David Plouffe was Barack Obama’s marketing campaign supervisor. One other individual concerned is Joel Benenson, who was the chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential marketing campaign. In fact, David Plouffe is an writer of a ebook, “A Citizen’s Information to Defeating Donald Trump.”

These are devoted partisans who Mark Zuckerberg hires and works with to provide them the cash to do strategically what they need. A kind of went to, as I stated, the Heart for Tech and Civic Life, which obtained an enormous majority of the cash: $327 million of the $400 million went to them.

The 2 leaders of that group, Tiana Epps-Johnson, an Obama fellow on the Obama Basis, and Donny Bridges, each had beforehand labored on the New Organizing Institute, which is a hardcore … Mark Levin calls it a communist group. The New Organizing Institute, the Washington Submit referred to as the Democrat Get together’s Hogwarts for digital wizardry. These individuals actually perceive information. They perceive digital operations. They perceive the technique on easy methods to win.

In his protection, Mark Zuckerberg says this was via a nonpartisan 501(c)(3). Nicely, these are the people who find themselves operating it. That’s such as you establishing a basis and placing me in control of it and saying it’s nonpartisan. No person’s going to assume that Dave Bossie awoke tomorrow and isn’t going to be the conservative activist that he’s been his whole life. It begs credulity.

Bluey: Now, you concentrate on three states within the movie, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Georgia. What occurred there and why are these three so essential?

Meath: We selected these three states as a result of while you have a look at the vote tallies of the 2020 election, these three battleground states—Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin—comprised 42,000 votes in these three states. So, 42,000 votes in these three states is the explanation that Joe Biden is president. We performed most of our concentrate on these states.

I’ll say although, that while you have a look at the place the cash was unfold round, they unfold this cash to states that had been very secure states like New York and California, and Massachusetts. Nearly each state obtained cash. And I do imagine that was as a result of they wished an insurance coverage coverage. They wished to make it possible for the favored vote whole for Joe Biden, for those who bear in mind when he received, all people was speaking about how no different president had ever obtained this many votes.

And I at all times was left scratching my head pondering, initially, there’s a pandemic, and we had been instructed that no person was going to have the ability to vote and folks had been going to be afraid to vote. Second of all, Joe Biden didn’t run on a marketing campaign. He mainly hid in his basement more often than not, and when he did exit, there was possibly 10 or 15 individuals standing in circles—in socially distanced circles—to have a look at him and he couldn’t even replenish these.

In order that at all times left me scratching my head, like how on the earth did this many individuals … how are they so enthusiastic to exit and vote for this man?

Nicely, it seems that they’d loads of assist from $400 million donations to get these individuals to get these individuals to mail-in votes, get these individuals to go to drop containers, and churn out votes wherever they may presumably discover them. Not even simply within the battleground states, regardless that these had been extraordinarily essential for the electoral win. Additionally they juiced these standard numbers.

Bluey: The overwhelming majority of the cash went to Democrat-heavy areas. Did any of the practically 400 million go to election workplaces and areas that had been extra more likely to assist President Trump?

Meath: They’ll say extra grants went to Trump districts than to Biden districts. And which may be true. However the issue is, while you have a look at the grants, for those who utilized for a grant, I don’t care who you had been. They’d provide you with $5,000, possibly $10,000, however they didn’t give $42 million, $20 million {dollars}, $15 million {dollars} to Trump districts. They had been giving these to Joe Biden-heavy areas. That’s the place the intense cash went.

You’ll be able to’t flip an election on $5,000, however you may flip an election placing $25 million right into a jurisdiction or $40 million right into a Democrat-rich county. That’s the place you begin flipping the election.

Bluey: Thanks for connecting these dots for us. We’ve heard how the left used COVID-19 to alter voting legal guidelines, some illegally in states like Pennsylvania, however this reaches an entire new degree what you’ve simply described. Why didn’t we see this coming in 2020, and what are a number of the ways in which we are able to forestall it from taking place sooner or later?

Bossie: Such good questions. It is vitally essential what you simply identified. All of this was underneath the guise of COVID-19, of performing a secure election for everyone. We speak about it within the movie. Even NPR says a really small proportion, and after I say very small, single-digit percentages, went to precise COVID security masks and Plexiglass and the like.

The entire cash actually went to GOTV efforts to make Joe Biden in a position to win this factor. I used to be concerned within the marketing campaign. Look, I used to be the deputy marketing campaign supervisor. Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, and I ran it in 2016. In 2020, there was a distinct group of individuals, however we nonetheless had been in a position to assist. However I didn’t become involved within the GOTV effort or the Election Day operations effort in 2020.

We didn’t see across the corners that guys who run presidential campaigns have to see round. Your job is to see round a nook. It’s very tough to do. The RNC has to do its half. They should have a machine.

By the way in which, on this midterm election proper now that we’re in, there is no such thing as a overriding nationwide marketing campaign to assist run it. It truly is the RNC, however possibly slightly bit the [National Republican] Senatorial Committee, the [National Republican] Congressional Committee however not likely. It’s received to be the RNC who, definitely, owns and operates what’s going to occur so far as the Election Day actions and the authorized aspect of issues.

That means, are we going to enter courtroom earlier than Election Day, not after it’s over, not after we’ve had an issue however earlier than? Are we going to do that over the summer season and into the autumn to make it possible for we’re preventing ever combat that may be picked?

They’ve Marc Elias. They’ve a man who all day lengthy he and his staff sit round, and they’re going state by state, county by county, throughout the nation to attempt to determine, the place can they win, the place can they do harm to the Republican Get together. We now have to do the identical.

We now have to have a devoted group of people who find themselves keen to go and combat the combat each single day. Attorneys and political operatives who’re going to scour the nation to search out these weaknesses, to search out the locations the place we’re being adversely affected and go combat these in courtroom earlier than Election Day, not after.

Bluey: One query that I’ve for you in gentle of what has transpired lately. Might Zuckerberg or maybe one other billionaire step in and do that once more in 2022 throughout the midterms this 12 months or 2024?

Meath: So take into consideration this. They did this to a president. They had been in a position to be extraordinarily efficient in altering the outcomes, or actually, helped change the outcomes on the very least of a United States presidential election defeating a sitting president. If they will try this, effectively, now they’re emboldened and so they can do something they need and nothing is stopping some other tech billionaire from coming in and throwing cash right into a race on the present fee.

There are 17 states which might be making an attempt to go legal guidelines to ban using one of these personal cash. However the issue is in loads of these Democrat swing states, the Democrat governors are vetoing the payments. So there’s nothing to say that in these locations, in these areas, that this might not occur once more.

And I additionally would point out that in states like Pennsylvania and others that had been very essential when it comes to giving the election to Joe Biden, they ignored their very own legal guidelines in 2020. Many of those states noticed this cash coming in. Many of those election workplaces noticed this cash flowing into their doorways and ended up ignoring loads of their voting legal guidelines in favor of throwing out drop containers onto avenue corners or distributing mail-in ballots wherever they presumably may.

Simply in my home I obtained 5 mail-in ballots. I imply, why do I want 5 mail-in ballots for myself? And this was taking place in all places. So there’s nothing to essentially cease them except extra states, extra essential states go election integrity legal guidelines.

Bluey: With that being stated, what’s your message to state legislators who’re debating this proper now, both of their states or contemplating doing one thing sooner or later that will forbid personal funding of presidency elections sooner or later?

Meath: A movie like this may actually assist attempt to get us on message and to attempt to see the gravity of what’s occurring in our elections. And the extra data like this that we are able to get out to individuals. We interviewed Rep. Janel Brandtjen, who’s within the Wisconsin Legislature. And she or he’s within the movie together with Michael Gableman, who was appointed to conduct an investigation of what occurred in Wisconsin. And it is extremely telling while you speak to them, what they’re up in opposition to.

Even some Republican lawmakers are scared to speak about election integrity, primarily as a result of for those who bear in mind, proper after President Trump questioned the election outcomes and different conservatives questioned the election outcomes, the media, and the Democrats freaked out to the purpose the place they wished to cancel all of them, they wished to throw them off tv.

They wished to name them merchants. They wished to name them even worse names as a result of they had been spreading disinformation in all of this. All that’s a smokescreen as a result of this isn’t disinformation, that is the reality, and folks have to be armed with the reality with a purpose to make daring strikes. And that’s what legislatures have to do: placed on their battle armor, get armed with the information, and go on the market and attempt to right our very damaged election system.

Bluey: And Jason, as I perceive it, you and Residents United Productions have confronted your personal challenges when it comes to getting the message out. Not solely via promoting, however maybe different large gamers within the media world who maybe don’t need this message reaching voters. Are you able to clarify a number of the difficulties you’ve had in Silicon Valley and different areas?

Meath: Dave is far nearer to the daily of what’s taking place when it comes to PayPal proscribing the film and platforms proscribing getting our promoting and our message out. That occurs, in fact, to conservatives on a regular basis.

I can inform you as a filmmaker who occurs to make movies that don’t tow the liberal line—in different phrases, a conservative filmmaker—I can’t even strategy some platforms. I don’t even hassle. I do know that no person at Netflix goes to take something that I’m making.

Give it some thought, you’re a mid-level man shopping for a movie that talks about election integrity and the truth that possibly Donald Trump was proper in questioning the election outcomes. Your boss goes to fireplace you. The man that owns Netflix is a raging liberal. So I get that they’re hamstrung right here, however these individuals attempt to shut down conservatives on a regular basis.

They’re going to attempt to stifle this film. And that’s one motive that Residents United was good in beginning their very own platform, rigged2020.com, which has all of their movies and all of their content material on there for individuals to look at. And from what I perceive, 59 nations around the globe are accessing and streaming this film. So individuals everywhere in the world have an interest on this. And the one means that they’re going to search out out the reality is by going to rigged2020.com and subscribing to look at the movie as a result of it’s very tough to get these messages out in some other platform.

Bluey: Earlier than I allow you to go, I’ve received to ask the query of what President Trump’s response was to the movie when he was in a position to see it at Mar-a-Lago?

Meath: The president got here up and he stated to all people in attendance, his quote was, “I actually preferred loads of motion pictures over the course of my life. ‘Citizen Kane’ was glorious. ‘Gone With the Wind’ was glorious. ‘Titanic’ was glorious, however that is the one I most look ahead to seeing.”

In order that was straight from the president on the premier. And when he stated that it made all of it worthwhile as a result of that’s what we’re doing it for. We don’t need one other 2020 to occur once more.

Bossie: I watched [Trump] watch the film. It was actually attention-grabbing. I’ve performed loads of issues with the president, however I’d by no means watched a film with him earlier than in a movie show. After it was over, he stood up and turned to me and he stated, “ that is actually unhappy.” I didn’t know the place he was going with it. He stated, “That is actually unhappy. It’s unhappy that this occurred, and it’s unhappy that you just needed to make this film.” He stated, “ what? It’s really miserable. What you simply described on this movie is so highly effective. It ought to by no means have occurred. It did occur, and it’s miserable that that’s the explanation that Joe Biden is president.”

However alternatively, he’s comfortable now to have the information and proof. It was borne out in North Carolina as a result of he talked concerning the film on the rally that he had there in North Carolina. He additionally confirmed the trailer a number of instances to the group. It was extremely effectively obtained.

The president is a fighter. It’s why he and I get alongside so effectively. We’re each fighters, and we’re by no means going to cease preventing for what we imagine in.

Bluey: David, inform our listeners yet one more time how they will get the movie.

Bossie: Please go to rigged2020.com. You’ll be able to stream it anyplace on the earth on any gadget. You should utilize PayPal. You should utilize Apple Pay.

Again after I began making movies, we had been on VHS. Right now, it’s all digital, and you’ll watch it anyplace on the earth. It’s an incredible factor.

Once I confirmed the president the trailer for it the primary time, I really pulled it up on my cellphone and mirrored it to his tv in his workplace. The expertise in the present day, youthful individuals take it without any consideration, however it’s an incredible factor. The influence and the depth now you can have with a movie. Whereas again within the day, it was actually laborious. You needed to go to a movie show or ship it to someone on a VHS. Right now, digitally it’s a game-changer.

Folks can ship this movie, “Rigged,” all throughout the nation and please do. Be sure that individuals know this movie exists. Go to rigged2020.com and watch it for your self.

Bluey: You will have made dozens of incredible movies all through your profession. It’s really exceptional. Thanks for the work that you just do each day, David, as a result of we’re grateful. We all know the ability of video and movie is simply so impactful.

Bossie: It’s actually. Thanks for reminding me as a result of all of these movies, our whole library is up at rigged2020.com, all the catalog of movies, all 27 movies are there. “Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous With Future,” with Newt Gingrich and Callista Gingrich, one other movie which is certainly one of my favorites. “9 Days That Modified the World,” and my movie on Pope John Paul II. It’s, in my view, one of many nice movies. It got here in second on the Vatican Movie Pageant a few years in the past. I simply love that. That’s certainly one of my favourite movies. I urge all people to go watch this movie. Then you definitely get to get pleasure from plenty of different movies which might be up there.

Bluey: David and Jason, thanks a lot for becoming a member of us in the present day.

Bossie: Thanks for having me.

Meath: Thanks for all you’re doing, Rob. Respect it.
