Arizona on February 14, 1912 became the forty-eighth state to enter the union, and the last of the "lower 48" (contiguous) states to enter. It is known as the Grand Canyon State. Its capital and largest city is Phoenix.
Arizona has always been politically conservative, but until 1952 the conservative Democrats were in control. Thanks to Barry Goldwater, Republicans built a strong base and controlled the electoral vote. In recent years, the state has gained population rapidly and the two parties are evenly matched.
The state Constitution of Arizona, like all of the other 50 states, acknowledges God or our Creator or the Sovereign Ruler of the Universe. It says:
- We the people of the State of Arizona, grateful to Almighty God for our liberties, do ordain this Constitution.

Geography and population
- The state is bordered by the following states: California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico (the latter three meet at a single point known as the "Four Corners", the only place where four states meet; the site is a popular tourist attraction which allows people to photograph themselves physically in four states), as well as Mexico.
- Total Land Area: 113,635 square miles
- Highest Elevation: 12,633 ft (Humphreys Peak)
- Population: 7,350,000 (2020)
- Most populated cities in Arizona:
- Phoenix, Population: 1,700,000
- Tucson, Population: 550,000
- Mesa, Population: 525,000
- Chandler, Population: 265,000
- Scottsdale, Population: 262,500
In more recent years, the Republican Party has generally dominated Arizona politics and the state legislature. In 2004, President George W. Bush won the state's ten electoral votes by a margin of 10 percentage points with 55% of the vote, and in 2008 John McCain won the state with 54% of the vote. Republicans control both chambers of the state legislature. However, Arizona became the first U.S. state to vote against an anti-gay marriage amendment in the 2006 midterm elections. Arizona used to consistently be a solid red state in presidential elections. However, Democrats Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly flipped Arizona's historically Republican senate seats in 2018 and 2020. Joe Biden also won the historic red state in 2020, the first Democrat to do so since Bill Clinton in 1996 and Harry Truman in 1948. There is currently an audit going on in Arizona for the 2020 election which is uncovering major voter fraud.
2020 presidential election

On November 16, 2020, Arizona reported a 65.9% voter turnout. On November 30, 2020, the Secretary of State’s reported 79.9% voter turnout, the highest in the country according to latest aggregated results from Statista.
Arizona reported the number of ballots cast was 3,420,565 in 2020 versus 1,037,550 in 1998, or 2,383,015 more people voted in 2020 vs 1998. In the same span of time the population grew by only 1,756,24. In other words, every single new person in the state - 100% over the past twenty-two years - voted, plus an additional 166,511 more than the population growth.
There was no proper signature validation of 1.9 million on mail in ballots.
Ballot destruction and vote switching
Over 75,000 absentee ballots were reported as unreturned when they were actually returned. These absentee ballots were then either lost or destroyed (consistent with allegations of Trump ballot destruction) and/or were replaced with blank ballots filled out by election workers or other third parties.
In cases where ballots were too damaged or illegible to be read by vote tabulation machines, Novus software 18.104.22.168. was used in an attempt to cure or restore the ballots. The system would do so by trying to read the applicable scans of the original rejected ballots. However, as noted in a court “the software was highly inaccurate, and it often flipped the vote....the software would erroneously prefill ‘Biden’ twice as often as it did ‘Trump.’”
Equal protection violations
Mail-in voters had up to 5 days to “cure” or “fix” invalid mail-in ballots sent prior to Election Day. In-person voters in Maricopa County had to deal with poll workers who did not know how to work electronic voting machines properly. This resulted in thousands of in-person votes being marked incorrectly, given provisional ballots, and disregarded rather than cured.

State officers and Maricopa County Officials failed to enforce the state law against private companies from directing federal election administration, accepting millions of dollars in private grants that gave some voters in the state access to advantages that were unavailable to voters in other parts of the state. These officials also allowed for gaps in the chain of custody of official ballots through the use of “mobile” drop boxes that are stationed in unsupervised public locations, failed to enforce the state law against double voting, and failed to enforce the state law against allowing people to vote using an address where they no longer live.
As a result of these violations, data experts estimate that more than 300,000 potentially fraudulent ballots may have influenced the outcome of the popular vote in the state, including more than 200,000 illegal ballots that were counted and about 75,000 legal votes that were not counted.
Dominion Voting Systems

Each Democrat party candidate was allotted 35,000 votes by rigged election machine before the voting started at 7 AM.
The Trump campaign and Republican National Committee filed a lawsuit that seeks the manual inspection of potentially thousands of in-person Election Day ballots in metro Phoenix that they allege were mishandled by poll workers and resulted in some ballot selections to be disregarded.
The legal challenge against Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs centers on instances in which people are believed to have voted for more candidates than permitted.
When tabulators detect such an “overvote,” poll workers should give voters a choice to fix the problem, but the workers instead either pressed or told voters to press a button on the machine to override the error, leaving the devices to disregard the problematic ballot selections, according to the lawsuit.
A Pima county whistleblower stated that Democratic Party members invited him to a meeting on September 10, 2020 and outlined a plan to add 35,000 votes to each Democrat candidate.
|"When I asked how in the world will 35,000 votes be kept hidden from being discovered, it was stated that spread distribution will be embedded across the entire registered-voter range and will not exceed the registered-vote count, and the 35,000 was determined allowable in Pima County, based on our county registered-vote count.
It was also stated that total voter turnout versus total registered voters determine how many votes we can embed.
Maricopa [County] embed totals would be substantially higher than Pima’s due to embeds being based upon the total number of registered voters.
When I asked if this has been tested and how do we know it works, the answer was yes, and has shown success in Arizona judicial-retention elections since 2014, even undetectable in post-audits because no candidate will spend the kind of funds needed to audit and contact voters to verify votes in the full potential of total registered voters, which is more than 500,000 registered voters."
According to testimony from an MIT-trained mathematician, Biden may have received a weighted 130% total of Democrat votes in Maricopa County to help him win the state due to an algorithm programmed into the Dominion voting machines.

Former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency and National Security Advisor Gen. Michael T. Flynn warned of a false flag attack to divide Americans in advance of the audit results being made public. Flynn warned,
|"It’s going to be ugly and that creates a lot of media attraction and everybody has to cover it. What does it mean? What is it going to do? And it keeps everybody off of the election fraud. ...the truth will continue to come out. Something is going to happen. I don’t think we’re going to have to wait until the end of summer. I think it’s going to happen here fairly soon…because they must create noise prior to the Arizona audit starting to really bubble out.|
