Our Founders Saw This Day Coming: The death of the foundation of our democracy

Fair and free elections are the foundation of our democracy because they ensure the government gets its authority from the will of the people.  As Jefferson said, “The people are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.’  Our founders so believed in this they outlined safeguards against fraud in Federalist Papers #68.  Adams once wrote to Jefferson, “Corruption in elections has heretofore destroyed all elective governments.”  Little did they know that over 200 years later, the Democratic Party would have the great United States of America looking like Belarus or Venezuela, countries that historically hold “bogus” elections.  Hamilton, Jefferson and Adams are undoubtedly rolling over in their graves.

So why exactly do millions of people think the election held in the United States on November 3, 2020, might have been “bogus” or suspect to say the least?   You need just look at some of the facts emerging to have your “BS” meter go off the charts.   Given the foundation of our democracy is on the line, perhaps it is time for all Americans to take a step back and check in with their “BS” meters to see if what is happening passes the good old “smell test”.  If not, everyone should be fighting to preserve the very foundation upon which this great country was built.  It is not just one election where the preferred candidate gets to serve in the White House for four years that is on the line.  Election “by fraud” will forever extinguish the beacon of light that has been shining here and for the world for over 200 years.

The Campaign of 2020

The campaign of 2020 will be remembered for its challenges due to the Corona virus pandemic.   The country struggled with the virus, deaths, lockdowns and economic fall-out.  Many Americans hoped the pandemic would not be politicized and that both sides could work together during such a terrible time.  But as President Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel once famously said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste…”.  Ergo, President Trump’s handling of the pandemic and resulting economic downturn became the two main talking points of the Biden campaign. 

As usual, the Democrats used their “opportunistic crisis playbook” to mislead the American people.  Rather than run on ideas and policies, they ran on fear-mongering.  An honest review of the Corona Virus Task Force’s efforts, starting in January, will show otherwise.  There was a day-to-day, full-court press attack on the ever-changing challenges presented by this novel virus.  The key word is NOVEL!  That means it had never been seen, studied or treated before anywhere in the world.  It was the task force’s out-of-the-box thinking that has led to a vaccine ready to be distributed in December.  Given vaccines normally take years to be developed and approved, here everyone can agree that Operation Warp Speed did something truly remarkable.  Sadly, the American people were kept in the dark about these efforts by the main-stream media who sought only to fan the flames of fear.  Why?  Because that was part of the “crisis playbook” designed to get Joe Biden elected.   And now according to the media, Joe Biden has now been crowned “President-elect Biden”. 

The 2020 Election Results 

Here is where the “BS” meter starts to move a bit.  Let’s look at the current overall vote counts:

  • President Trump received 10.1 million more votes in 2020 over the 2016 election when he defeated Hillary Clinton.  His base has never been stronger and he had won over large groups who voted democratic in the past (i.e. Police unions, Hispanics, African Americans etc.)
  • Joe Biden received 13.9 million votes over what President Obama received in 2009, making him the candidate with more votes than any other presidential candidate in U.S history!   Keep in mind President Obama has been voted to be one of the most popular presidents in history. 

Now common sense and logic would tell you Joe Biden just isn’t all that!  During the entire 2020 campaign, he literally did not campaign.  There were a few gatherings in parking lots here and there but virtually no interaction with the American people.  There were literally no press conferences except for the ones his campaign team set-up with pre-selected friendly reporters.  He was mocked for his many gaffes and there was genuine concern over his cognitive health.  That is a far cry from the energetic, charismatic Barack Obama who took the country and the world by storm.  But yet there you have it, according to the results, almost 14 million more people voted for him than President Obama.  This is in spite of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal that exposes Joe Biden, aka “the big guy”, and his personal financial ties to China along with other controversial Biden family businesses established while Biden was Vice President.  But sadly once again, most of the American people are unaware of this story because the main-stream media censored it.  Twitter actually banned the New York Post story about this from posting or being shared on their site right before the election. How is that possible in America?  I guess it’s true that while President Trump was focusing on the “campaign” for the American people, Joe Biden and his team, including the media, were focused on the logistics of the “election.” 

Looking at their “opportunistic crisis playbook”, they saw a way to use the pandemic as an excuse for mass “absentee ballot” mail-in voting.  They claimed to be concerned for the health of the American people during the time of the virus so this would ensure they would not have to leave their homes to stand in a line to vote.  Meanwhile, these same people frequently stand in lines at stores to shop, and as long as they are masked and socially distanced, it works.  But somehow, that would not work for voting in the Presidential election.  Shouldn’t it have been up to each individual to request an “absentee “ballot if they were uncomfortable going to the polls?   Shouldn’t the Democratic party have remembered the conclusion of the 2005 Commission on Federal Election Reform, chaired by President Carter, that said, “absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud”.  Sadly, that is perhaps precisely what they took away from that report. 

Impact of the swing states

The swing states are ones that could be won by either party.  They are not a “lock” like California and New York which have always historically voted for the Democrat candidate.  In 2016, the AP designated 11 states as swing states and Donald Trump won Fl, IA, MI, NC, OH, PA, WI.  But in 2020, when late on election night it looked like he was winning those states again, he somehow lost three:  MI, PA and WI.  Combined they are worth a total of 46 electoral votes.   What else do they have in common?  They all used the Dominion voting system. 

Over the years, concerns have been raised about the Dominion voting system and the software they use.  In 2019, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, both Democrats, wrote letters raising concerns that the system was prone to security problems.   The Secretary of State in Texas refused to utilize the system due to the same concerns.  It was reported the machines could be prone to fraud given the pre-set algorithm and data dump capabilities.   Were their concerns realized after all in the 2020 election?

Numerous investigative reports suggest that could be the case.  As described in one investigative report, “unraveling the mystery begins with the New York Times.”  Apparently, after the polls closed on election day, the Times began to report results hour by hour.   It tracked the totals and then new votes for each candidate as they were uploaded in the various state systems.  For example, late on Wednesday, November 4, the New York Times reported Trump was leading Georgia by 103,977 votes.  Then suddenly every three hours later, new vote dumps were uploaded that each reduced his lead.  The important thing to note is that all the dumps were in exact multiples of 4,800.  This pattern and vote dumps continued until November 7 where Biden finally took the lead.   To quote the statisticians “the statistical possibility of Biden picking up multiples of 4,800 votes 16 times during this 4-day period would be firmly in the impossible range.”  In the Georgia audit last week, nine observers have signed affidavits swearing they saw suspicious mail-in ballots, almost uniformly cast for Biden.  The ballots were in pristine condition and had no creases on them, meaning the ballots had not been mailed in envelopes as required. 

They also looked at the same New York Times data for Pennsylvania.  On election day, Trump took an early and commanding lead.  By November 4, Trump was leading Biden by almost 300,000 votes.  Then Pennsylvania suddenly went the way of Georgia.  His lead began to disappear when vote “dumps” started to hit the system.  There were 44 separate vote dumps but this time they were all in increments of 6,000 or 12,000 votes.  Four days after Trump had the lead firmly in hand at the close of election night, Biden came back with a 46,000-vote margin victory.  The same quote about the statistical possibility of this being real applies here. 

In Michigan, Trump was ahead by over 300,000 votes at 11:00 on election night.  In this case, the vote spike for Biden came in the middle of the night when at the Detroit vote counting center, trucks came in with ballots in garbage bags, garbage cans etc.  All of these votes went for Biden.  Moreover, most of the ballots voted only for Biden and none of the down-ticket candidates.   By morning, Biden had made up that 300,000 deficit and then some.  A city of Detroit worker by the name of Jessy Jacob stated in an affidavit she personally witnessed the backdating of thousands of ballots the day after the election to make them appear legal.  In Wisconsin, Biden won because of a data dump of 143, 379 votes at 3:42 am on November 4.   What are the odds Trump fell behind every single one of these states after midnight?  Again, this is clearly in the “statistical impossible range”.    

There are hundreds of sworn affidavits from eyewitnesses, under penalty of law, describing these voting irregularities in Michigan and other states.  But it does not, unfortunately, end there.

Other red flags 

-Republican vote count observers were physically removed from their posts in Democrat cities (e.g. Philadelphia).  Bipartisan poll watching is supposed to be one of the most important protections against fraud.

-Windows were covered so that the vote count could not be monitored.

-In Detroit and other cities, more people voted than are registered to vote.  In some cases, it was by 125%-350% more votes than registered voters.

-In Pittsburg, 17,000 people went to the polls and were told they already sent in an absentee ballot when they had not.  They had to fill out a “provisional” ballot which are notorious for not being counted in time. 

-In Georgia, where Trump was leading, they stopped the process because of a water main break near the Atlanta Hawks stadium where the votes were being counted.  Now that a subpoena has been issued for the records of the break and its repair, the only public records provided were a few text messages from the VP of the Atlanta Hawks Stadium who called it a “slow leak” that was “contained quickly” and he said the entire thing was “highly exaggerated”.

The stories go on and on.  I think the questions the American people should be asking the Biden camp is if there is nothing to hide, why not thoroughly investigate these claims?  Why would they wish to assume office under such a dark cloud of election fraud?  Don’t the American people deserve to have their “lawfully” cast votes count so that the “will of the people” is what elects the President of the United States?  Of course, we know the answer to those questions.

Thankfully, there are those who still believe in integrity, honesty and fairness.  The others may win the contest but will have lost so much more.  The fight for democracy does not end here.  To quote Thomas Paine, “Those who expect to reap the blessing of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”  Democracy, or that “beacon of light” that has been shining for over 200 years, must not be allowed to dim.
