Did you know that President Trump did all these things – among many other fine and great acts – during his four years in office?
Most likely, unless you’re a serious political wonk with either too much time on your hands or a material need to hunt down such things, you don’t. It’s not like the Democrats’ Lamestream Media ever reported any positive thing that President Trump has done. Doing so wasn’t their job since it didn’t fit the chosen narrative or the Democrats’ most-likely successful pogrom to remove our POTUS from office.
Well now, too late in all likelihood for a positive and peaceful resolution, you know. What you do with that knowledge is a matter for your own conscience.
Yes, after years of incessant accusations, lamentations, and general Histrionical screeds from the Democrats that the Russians “meddled” in our elections, they’ve finally declared that America’s election process is safe and secure. 🙄
I would describe this as “results-based” security practices. If the Democrats don’t get the election results that they want, it’s due to foreign malfeasance and Republicans colluding with those foreign powers. If, however, the Democrats get the results that they do want, then the elections were safe and secure, and any complaints to the contrary are a “threat to democracy.”
Ignoring the usual Leftist screeds, President Trump isn’t wrong about the risks to our nation posed by the Democrats’ desperate bid to have mass absentee voting for the 2020 elections. It’s an idea tailor made for rampant voter fraud and other “shenanigans,” such as “losing” boxes of ballots.
Here’s the thing, the Left is correct in saying that actual voter fraud is extremely rare but … most of it is involved with absentee voting, something that is, itself normally extremely rare in the context of national elections.
And then, there’s the US Postal Service (USPS), which probably couldn’t properly handle delivering and picking up all those 10’s of millions of ballots, and who couldn’t truly be trusted to do so properly due to their current political views. After all, in a crisis of resources, one tends to favor those whom one feels are of value over others.
Essentially, the Dems are pushing for this because they know that having a national vote-by-mail/absentee voting election they can break the system and send us down a similar path to the 2000 Hanging Chad debacle but on a national scale. It’s their attempt to either change to outcome of the election or, failing that, make its results as “illegitimate” as possible in the minds of the populace. The latter, honestly, being what I find to be a more likely motive.
As the results of- and the Dems’ petty, utterly graceless, and insulting responses to the elections in both Florida and Georgia show, the Dems, especially the anti-White, race-baiting Blacks they come up with as candidates, will say and do anything to attack the process and the will of the voters, who rejected these sub-par individuals.
Both Gillum and Abrams claimed that they didn’t really lose and the that the results were because the elections were stolen from them via some combination of election fraud, voter suppression, and – of course, given these candidates – racism. And, as expected in these times, they spent the next couple of weeks engaging in bemoaning the “theft” and engaging in lawfare – and outright election fraud – against the victors and the People, who rejected these candidates as unworthy of office.
Sufficient incompetence is indistinguishable from corruption, fraud, or malice. This is especially true of the recently ousted Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes. There’s comes a point where incompetence and malice are distinctions without a difference.
