President Trump delivered what he called possibly â€œthe most
important speechâ€ he had ever made last week. If you donâ€™t know
that, you can be forgiven. Itâ€™s not your fault.
You see, the speech was an update on voter fraud and
irregularities in the 2020 election, and the mainstream media
doesnâ€™t want to cover that. They certainly didnâ€™t air the
speech in full, and if you went back after the fact to read
about it, you would find out that it was â€œfilled with liesâ€
(New York Times), â€œbaselessâ€ (USA Today and The Washington
Post), and â€œfalsehood-filledâ€ (FactCheck.org). Thatâ€™s code
for â€œTrump said it, so we assume it isnâ€™t true.â€
But the speech was not â€œbaseless.â€ It was a recitation of
irregularities based on the testimony of dozens of people who had
either signed affidavits or avowed publicly that they had
personally witnessed illegality and fraud committed in the 2020
election. In addition, the president recounted the statements of
several cybersecurity experts who found vote-count anomalies they
said could only be explained by cheating.
If you donâ€™t know about any of that either, again itâ€™s not
your fault. You probably assume that a story of that magnitude
would be covered by every major news outlet, but again you would be
What we are talking about is the most consequential election
challenge since 2000, and perhaps the most significant
constitutional crisis since the Civil War, yet the celebrity
journalists canâ€™t be bothered to do any actual reporting of their
own. Do you think Jake Tapper or Kristen Welker or Kaitlan Collins
actually called one of the witnesses for themselves to hear their
stories or test their credibility?
Hell, no, but if the mainstream media were interested in
covering the news instead of covering it up, they would be offering
nonstop 24/7 coverage of the election fraud story just as they do
for hurricanes and terrorism. If they did that, then no one could
get away with the lie that there is “no evidence” of fraud. There
is a tsunami of evidence that has been rolled out in public
legislative hearings in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, and
Those presenting the evidence are everyday Americans — a
diverse group of white, black, Republican and even Democratic Party
people — who saw things that cried out for investigation and
weren’t intimidated by the media’s intimation that they were liars
or right-wing kooks.
Watching the testimony, I have never been prouder of my fellow
citizens — people who volunteered their time, cared enough to risk
public condemnation, and signed their affidavits under penalty of
perjury to bring to light what they considered to be violations of
law that raise questions about the integrity of the 2020 election.
Call it the Revenge of the Deplorables.
For their trouble they are being attacked by the media, by
Democrats, and by establishment Republicans as incompetent,
irrelevant and immaterial. They are none of those things, although
many of them are tentative, fearful and all too human. Their
stories are not rehearsed, and they arenâ€™t always well-behaved on
the witness stand. Sometimes they get downright cranky. Thatâ€™s
because they are just regular folks who were accidental witnesses
to what may well be the crime of the century, and they donâ€™t have
any training to prepare them for their role in history.
One witness who wasnâ€™t afraid was Linda Lee Tarver, who spent
29 years working in the Michigan secretary of state’s office and is
also a former civil rights commissioner. Tarver rightly
pointed out that itâ€™s not worth millions of dollars to just
recount the same fraudulent votes you started with, especially not
in a city like Detroit where election integrity is an oxymoron.
â€œDemocrat-controlled areas cannot seem to balance their
elections [so that only legal votes are counted], and because they
have been habitual violators [with] the inability to balance their
election due to either ignorance, apathy, lack of leadership or
lack of caring,â€ it wonâ€™t matter if you change the laws or do a
recount. â€œIf you add more laws to the books, you still have
people who will not follow the law,â€ she said. â€œâ€¦ If you
followed the law in the urban Democratic controlled areas, then we
would not be here today.â€
Mismarked ballots, unverified signatures, ballots that looked
like they had been marked by machine, ballots that mysteriously
appeared in sequence when they should have arrived at the counting
station randomly — all of these were flaws cited by the witnesses,
many of whom tried in vain to challenge the questionable votes.
Hima Kolanagireddy, a GOP poll watcher in Michigan, said the
vote-counting process, which was heavily weighted toward Democrat
observers, was not designed to ensure integrity, but to make sure
that Republicans were kept away from the ballots.
â€œThere were Democratic challengers there. I donâ€™t even call
them challengers; they were agitators,â€ she said. â€œThey were
only there with one purpose. When GOP people or nonpartisan people
signed up, we were only trying to ensure that there was integrity.
Whereas when Democratic challengers signed up, their only purpose
there was to intimidate the GOP people and get them out.â€
Another poll challenger named Braden Giacobazzi confirmed that
description from his own experience.
â€œI witnessed the room erupt in thunderous applause and
derogatory cheering as Republican poll workers were picked off one
by one and ejected from the room by police escort throughout the
day,â€ said Giacobazzi, who said he was treated like an enemy by
the poll supervisors because he represented the Republican Party.
â€œAll trying to intimidate me and prevent me from doing my job,
claiming that I was endangering their workers, trying to kill their
people, and even holding a pen in a threatening way. Yet when
non-GOP operatives would stand near the tables and harass me, no
one would give them any problem at all.â€
A fourth witness from Michigan, Andrew Sitto, said that ballot
challenges made by Republicans were totally ignored: â€œWe
challenged ballots all night. Every challenge was refused. They
never carried it out. They never issued challenged ballots. There
was no track. No remedy. No record. No recording of any challenged
ballot the entire night.â€
A witness in Pennsylvania, Leah Hoops, spoke for all the
witnesses when she said, â€œIâ€™m here for one thing only, and that
is to speak the truth. This is not about party. This is about my
country. Every American deserves transparency, truth, and to be
able to question those in power without fear of intimidation,
bullying, or backlash. â€¦ The republic is angry, disgruntled,
tired, beaten up, and ready to defend this country.â€
Yes, the people like Hoops and Tarver and Kolanagireddy are
ready to defend this country, but not everyone is. Attorney General
Bill Barr told the Associated Press, â€œTo date, we have not seen
fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in
the election.â€ As Trump responded, they must not have â€œlooked
very hardâ€ because â€œthis is probably the most fraudulent
election that anyone has ever seen.â€
Of course, the Trump-hating media gave wide coverage to Barrâ€™s
apparent dismissal of Trumpâ€™s concerns, and then virtually
ignored the Justice Departmentâ€™s clarification:
â€œSome media outlets have incorrectly reported that the
Department has concluded its investigation of election fraud and
announced an affirmative finding of no fraud in the election,â€ a
DOJ spokesman stated. â€œThat is not what the Associated Press
reported nor what the Attorney General stated. The Department will
continue to receive and vigorously pursue all specific and credible
allegations of fraud as expeditiously as possible.â€
Really? This is the same Justice Department that spent two years
trying to push Trump into the dustbin of history with its fake
Russian collusion investigation. This is the same Justice
Department that has failed to prosecute anyone in the Obama
administration for its concerted effort to destroy Trump and anyone
associated with him. This, in other words, is the Justice
Department that is part of the problem, not part of the
So many people in power are willing to sacrifice our greatest
freedoms — the freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of
religion and especially the freedom of self-government — in the
name of political expediency. They donâ€™t seem to care whether the
election was fair or not — as long as it gets rid of Trump.
You can start with the Big Tech oligarchs who have arrogated to
themselves the power to silence people they disagree with. But you
canâ€™t stop there. Our politicians have empowered the oligarchs by
cowering in fear of them, and that includes Republican politicians.
The Republican Party as a brand is so tarnished that true
conservatives should start considering a divorce.
Letâ€™s cut to the chase: America will never be the same again.
The election of 2020 means that there is no going back to our
forefathersâ€™ republic. It doesnâ€™t matter whether you are
Democrat or Republican. Chances are, you will never trust your
government on faith again, and if you are a conservative you will
certainly never trust Republicans again. If they were willing to
abandon Trump in his hour of greatest need, they certainly canâ€™t
be counted on to defend you or your principles when the Democrats
come to take away your constitutional rights.
As matters currently stand, about half the country believes that
President Trump was cheated out of his election victory by some
kind of coordinated campaign. If Trump were to be successful in
convincing the Supreme Court or enough state legislatures to
reverse the outcome, then Democrats would be equally certain that
Trump stole the election from Joe Biden.
Is there any way around that virtual warfare? Is there any way
to â€œheal the nation,â€ which Biden proposes as his holy mission?
Hell, no, and anyone who tells you otherwise is either a
virtue-signaling fool or a dissembling politician.
The battle lines are drawn. Pick a side, and choose wisely. Just
as the Democrats expect, a â€œGreat Resetâ€ is coming, but donâ€™t
bet on the outcome just yet. With or without a second term for
Donald J. Trump, American patriots are ready to fight and they
intend to â€œkeep the republic.â€ Buckle up.
