Joe Biden’s stunning gains in Georgia may have had some help from an “investment” by one of the Big Tech giants.

Biden gained more than 220,000 votes over Hillary’s performance in 2016 which pushed him to be competitive with President Trump in the state. At the time of this writing, a full week after election day, Georgia has not yet been called with 99% of precincts reporting. According to Real Clear Politics, Joe Biden is currently in the lead by 12,337 votes. The margin is very tight and will likely go to recount.

In 2016, Donald Trump had defeated Hillary Clinton in the state by 211,141 votes according to the Georgia Secretary of State’s election website.

What’s even more surprising is that the vast majority of the nearly quarter of a million vote gains occurred in just three counties.

Cobb, Fulton, and Gwinnett accounted for 168,703 of Biden’s 221,751 vote margin gain, or 76 percent, and those three counties also received $15 million in grants from the Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) “safe elections” project.

Breitbart reports:

The $15.8 million in “safe elections” grants these three counties in the Metropolitan Atlanta area–Fulton, Cobb, and Gwinnett- received from CTCL are a little more than four percent of the funding provided by Zuckerberg through CTCL to county and city election departments around the country in 2020.

“Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Tuesday that he and his wife have donated an additional $100 million to a “safe elections” project run by the non-profit Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), bringing their total contributions to that project to $350 million since September 1,” Breitbart News REPORTED in October.

According to Ballotpedia, CTCL spent $16.6 million for “safe elections” in six Georgia counties. All six counties were ones that had overwhelmingly supported Hillary in 2016. Public records show that there were no counties that voted for Trump that received grants from CTCL, and a request from Breitbart to CTCL specifically asking that question hasn’t been answered.

Check out the numbers:

In the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden received 379,095 votes in Fulton County, compared to 136,716 for Donald Trump, a net vote margin of 242,379 votes for Joe Biden.

In Cobb County, Biden received 221,746 votes, compared to 165,195 for Donald Trump, a net vote margin of 56,551 votes for Biden.

In Gwinnett County, Biden received 241,827 votes, compared to 166,413 votes for Donald Trump, a net vote margin of 75,414 votes for Biden.

In those three counties combined, Joe Biden’s net vote margin in 2020 over Donald Trump was 374,344, an increase of 168,703 over Hillary Clinton’s net vote margin of 205,641.

Now, we know that “correlation does not equal causation” but critics of CTCL grants have said that they don’t appear to be unbiased, but appear to be pro-Democrat.

“Critics say the CTCL project’s grants look a lot more like Democratic “Get-out-the-Vote” (GOTV) efforts in major cities around the country than good government efforts to protect the integrity of the electoral process of all Americans, regardless of their party affiliation,” Breitbart News REPORTED.

That’s because the point was to target specific voters in specific districts and get them out to vote. It would appear that specific demographics were targeted in the “safe elections” project to yield a desirable result.

Another Breitbart article digs deeper into this claim that CTCL grants are more like Democrat GOTV efforts and is definitely worth the read. Michael Patrick Leahy did some stellar work over there chronicling the massive disparities in funding when comparing Trump-backed and Hillary-backed districts.

An analysis by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society suggests a far different story. Since September 1, 2020, the CTCL has made at least $63.7 million in grants to election commissions in 18 counties and two cities for what the CTCL calls the coronavirus “safe elections” project.

More than 99.5 percent of this funding — $63.4 million — went to election commissions in 17 counties and two cities won by Hillary Clinton in 2016. Less than one half of one percent of the funding — a mere $289,000 — went to a county Donald Trump won in 2016, Hays County, Texas, which the president barely won by a margin of 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent.

A significant portion of these grants — more than $13.9 million — went to election commissions in areas Hillary Clinton won with more than 80 percent of the vote. Ten million dollars went to the city of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, which Clinton won with 84 percent of the vote, $3.5 million went to Wayne County, Michigan, which Clinton won with 96 percent of the vote, and $467,000 went to the election commission in the city of Flint, Michigan, which Clinton won with 84 percent of the vote.

Philadelphia also received a $10 million grant from CTCL to conduct “safe elections” and check out their priorities:

  • Upgrade equipment for processing applications and ballots and more timely reporting
  • 17 satellite elections offices for in-person on-demand mail-in voting
  • Obtaining and distributing PPE, training, and other support to ensure safe and accessible polling places on election day
  • Support for drop boxes and relevant security needs
  • Printing and postage costs to inform and educate voters about options for voting

According to Breitbart, more than half of this grant — $5,500,554 — was used for mail-in and absentee ballot counting, and we see how that’s going right now.

It’s clear that there are some people that are Democrat to the core and will vote for a turnip with a “D” on it, some will hate-vote against President Trump, and there are some that are convinced to vote Democrat. It’s that last, more malleable group that may have been convinced by the “safe elections” project and the Media (D) who have worked tirelessly as a Democratic GOTV effort for decades.
