Erik Prince on 2000 Mules and the Greatest Threat to the United States of America (2022)

On an episode of the Shawn Ryan podcast released earlier this month, Erik Prince, who is a former U.S. Navy Seal Officer and the founder of the now disbanded private military company Blackwater, discussed what he believed are the greatest threats to the United States of America.

“Our biggest threat is internal… if we can’t even agree on what is a free and fair election. Right? Because the other attribute of a country is something that has defined and defended borders. So we have one party that is intentionally erasing borders that is doing some very questionable things around elections. If you haven’t seen the movie 2000 mules — watch it. I don’t think anyone can say that the 2020 election was the freest and fairest in history after watching that. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck — it’s a duck. And so, that kind of election fraud must not happen again.”

According to a Rasmussen poll, 77% of the approximately twenty million voters who saw Dinesh D’Souza’s election fraud documentary, “2000 Mules”, said that the movie “strengthened their conviction that there was systematic and widespread election fraud in the 2020 election.”

“Votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth, statistics show… Voting by mail is now common enough and problematic enough that election experts say there have been multiple elections in which no one can say with confidence which candidate was the deserved winner… Absentee ballots also make it much easier to buy and sell votes… all the evidence of stolen elections involves absentee ballots and the like.”

The above quote comes from a 2012 New York Times article entitled, “Error and Fraud at Issue as Absentee Voting Rises”. Before the 2020 election, there was a bipartisan consensus that voting by mail was more easily abused than in-person voting.

In a 2005 report signed by President Jimmy Carter and James A. Baker III, who served as secretary of state under the first President George Bush, the Commission on Federal Election Reform report stated, “Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.”

A Slate article written in 2016 stated, "the only voting fraud schemes with the potential to actually swing elections involved mail-in ballots… This makes sense: It’s much easier to forge a signature, impersonate a voter, or buy a vote in the privacy of one’s home than it is in a voting booth at the polls…If Republicans were truly serious about eradicating voter fraud, they would severely restrict absentee voting, permitting it only when voters have a good excuse, like illness."

In March 2020, as coronavirus lockdowns rolled out around the country, prominent Democrats such as Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama publicly called for a “vote-by-mail” election.

Although bipartisan consensus previously agreed that vote-by-mail leads to fraudulent elections, Democrats successfully increased ballots cast by mail from 28.8 million in 2016 to 66.4 million in 2020, a whopping 131 percent increase.

The percentage of Democrats voting by mail rose from 26 percent in 2016 to 60 percent in 2020. On the other hand, Republican voters only saw a rise from 21 percent to 32 percent.

In other words, the extra 37.6 million ballots cast by mail during the 2020 election swung the election for Democrats.

Democrats simultaneously used the covid lockdowns to push for nationwide mail-in voting while Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg funneled more than $400 million into CTCL, a private partisan organization, which created a two-tiered election system that treated voters differently depending on whether they lived in Democrat or Republican areas.

CTCL demanded the promotion of universal mail-in voting, extended deadlines that favored mail-in over in-person voting, staffed get-out-the-vote efforts, paid election officials, and ordered the consolidation of counting operations.

CTCL also drove the proliferation of ballot drop boxes which created the opportunity for this network of “2000 Mules” to illegally ballot harvest in the swing states that ultimately decided the outcome of the election.

Biden won 25 of the 26 cities and counties that received at least $1 million in Zuckerberg’s CTCL grants. These dollars didn’t flow indiscriminately to needy areas of the country but largely to government election offices in the biggest cities of swing states, where the majority of Democrat voters are concentrated.

Erik Prince is right — election fraud is one of the greatest threats to the United States of America.

State legislatures, county election officials, and sheriffs must act on the evidence documented by True the Vote, 2000 Mules, and countless others exposing election fraud.

1. Clean up the voter rolls.

2. Stop mass mail-in voting.

3. Abolish the drop boxes.
