The corrupt news media monolith of disinformation is simply reporting today that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger ordered a “hand recount” of ballots in the presidential contest this morning. But watch this clip of his announcement with the sound on and listen carefully to what he actually says:

“With the margin being so close, it will require a full, by-hand recount in each county. This will help build confidence, it will be an audit, a recount, and a re-canvass all at once.”
That last part is crucial, because a simple recount would make no effort to ensure that ballots were properly and legally cast. It would simply segregate the paper ballots between the candidates by hand, and then feed them through the same tabulating machines and suspect software used in the first place.
An audit and re-canvass go much further. These will involve, for example, matching signatures on mail-in ballots to those on voter registration applications. They will involve ensuring that the person supposedly casting a vote was actually alive at the time it was cast, and actually lived in the state of Georgia.
This makes what was ordered in Georgia today completely different from the hand-recount already ordered in Michigan, since the Michigan process will not involve a re-canvass or full audit of the ballots. Thus, the order in Michigan is very unlikely to change the outcome in and of itself. But what was ordered in Georgia today is a very big deal.
That is all.
