Is the establishment striking back at President Trump and supporters? Was there massive election fraud?
Yes, the title of this article was borrowed from Star Wars V and seems somehow befitting for current events, although the circumstances differ somewhat. An unlikely, irreverent, combative real estate billionaire takes on the left wing Globalist establishment, otherwise known as the “Deep State” or “The Swamp” to its opponents. In an unlikely victory, he takes over the reins, or at least attempts to, for four years, endeavoring to reverse the worst excesses of Empire, with yuuuge opposition at every step. Another four years is not looking too likely now, although it will be due process all the way. Is he Luke Skywalker? Then who is Darth Vader?
Joe Biden sorely lacks the heft to be Darth Vader. So, the icon of the Empire has instead been a shape-shifting series of nightmare holographs- Hillary Clinton, morphing into Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, James Comey, George Soros, anonymous black clad mace-wielding ANTIFA creatures, resentful Barack Obama in his DC Bunker, the comical bartender AOC, then finally the unlikely visage of basement-dwelling, black-masked, child-sniffing, Globalist-Fascist-enabling, influence-peddling corrupt mediocrity Joe Biden, to the tune of “Hail to the Chief?” This is their best? Baaad trip, duuuude.
But, no matter what, the Empire was super pissed-off to lose even partial control of what it thought was its rightful place fully in charge- for a full presidential election cycle. So, it came back at Luke/Donald with everything it- and its allies- Democratic Party, Globalist team, Beltway Bandits, the Left Academia and Leftist media and tech oligarchs and their platforms, had. Add in BLM, ANTIFA, George Soros and his various affiliates and you have a very powerful space armada to bring to bear on the rebels. This was unleashed before Luke/Donald was even elected.
I have watched and occasionally participated in politics for decades, but have never seen anywhere even close to the magnitude, intensity, ferocity and dirtiness of their opposition to Luke/Donald. Opposition to Bush(es), Reagan, even Goldwater, was paltry in comparison. But no one but Trump has EVER been such a threat to the Secular “Progressive” (Socialist) fascist empire which has bulked up up increasingly over the years.
If nothing else, the last five years have proven that there is indeed a “Deep State,” living in a figurative “swamp,” which goes on and does pretty much whatever it wants, no matter who is in the White House.
So, WHY do they hate and fear Luke/Donald so much more than any other President in our lifetimes? His independent great wealth and super-tough “toxic masculinity”, “grab ’em by the P*ssy” personality make him less subject to manipulation than any other President we’ve ever seen. But even that wouldn’t upset the Empire so much if he at least wanted what they wanted. LBJ, Nixon, Kennedy (who also came from wealth), even Clinton, all had the toxic male thing, too. It pretty much goes with the territory, unless you’re Carter or Obama. But, let’s face it, most Presidents have been errand boys to whatever constituency bought them the White House (although some say JFK was snuffed because he stepped off the reservation). But the White House was a big step down for Donald. He gives his piddling $400,000 salary to charities.
Wake-up call: The #1 REAL reason the Empire hates Luke/Donald is that he is the biggest, baddest anti-Globalist since George Washington. Trump’s personal antics, tweets and malapropisms are not the cause of the Empire’s heartburn.
The Empire/Deep State controls most of the levers of government, academia and though its private actors, the levers of finance, commerce and information flow. To be sure, Luke/Donald did twist its tail and make some earth-shaking changes which struck them to the core. For example, he rattled the antiquated but sacred NATO and made Europe start carrying more of its own load, scoffed at the UN and its corrupt inefficient and often anti-American organization, moved the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, wrecked ISIS and killed off the world’s worst terrorist leaders, ended the absurd Iran nuclear agreement, achieved record high stock market and lowest unemployment on record (before COVID-19), shifted defense emphasis toward China, withdrew from the one-sided and absurd Paris Accords, renegotiated some one-sided trade treaties, greatly trimmed federal bureaucratic regulations, increased border security including hundreds of miles of The Wall (his biggest opposition was from people who agreed with him 10-12 years ago), facilitated prison reform which disproportionately helps blacks, opposed baby-killing (yes it IS), appointed hundreds of at least somewhat more constitutional judges and, oh yeah, didn’t get us into any new wars like his predecessors did, was nominated four times for the Nobel Peace Prize.
For five, not just four years, we have seen the Empire throw everything but the kitchen sink at Luke/Donald- and that too came flying at him this week, in the form of election dirty tricks on steroids, which of course, have been planned for years, They even told us about it, in the form of their “Election Transition Project” manifesto (no, YOU go look it up).
Previously, they tried to discredit/destroy him via the powerful “MainStream” Leftmedia and Social Media, Justice Dept., FBI and State Dept., fraudulent use of FISA Court, attempted to manipulate electoral votes, tried to invoke the Emoluments Clause and the 25th Amendment, IRS audits, impeachment, investigation and attempted indictments, destroying some of his appointees and associates.
So, the question of the week:
Did The Empire Commit Election Fraud against Trump?
Couldn’t be, because the MSM (even Fox), DNC, RINO wing all say there’s “not a shred of evidence of widespread election fraud.” I beg to differ. I watched the voting numbers all Tuesday night into the wee hours of Wednesday and was shocked to see a campaign which was winning an electoral landslide at midnight slide into deficit in multiple swing states before breakfast. Just what the hell happened? I saw images of computer screens with 6 figure numbers added to Biden votes and nothing to Trump in some time periods, such as in Michigan. Election officials couldn’t or just wouldn’t explain how that could happen. I saw repeated statistical improbabilities of vote swings.
While it’s true and I have observed that mail-in and provisional ballots which are often counted later than those cast at polling places tend toward Democrat votes (I won’t get into why- that’s a separate argument/article, if not a book). In any case, the level of discrepancies is much higher than that alone would cause.
I can remember previous election all night vigils with the network talking heads droning on an on, with scenes of and interviews during election activities of counting, tallying and updating. But Tuesday night was uncannily quiet. Some states seemed to stop counting when they didn’t like the numbers.
Some of the networks/news companies were adding states to the Biden electoral tally, but not being so generous with the states where Trump was ahead just as much. The arrogance of them thinking they are entitled to “call” states when they have zero authority and questionable qualifications to do so and when they have been seen to have shown bias in the past. I shunted back and forth between multiple sources and noticed big differences among them.
There have been numerous reports of discarded ballots being discovered and various anomalies in ballot printing, distribution and voting discrepancies. But Tuesday night and Wednesday on, these reports skyrocketed. Nevada said they were recommending criminal charges on thousands of offenses- does that sound “widespread?” Nothing new for Nevada. When Sharron Angle ran for the US Senate in 2010, she amassed over 5,000 election complaints and took them to a judge, she later told attendees at an election seminar. His answer? Come back when you have 10,000, she revealed.
The most visible problems weren’t about voters, but about election officials/employee/judicial actions. Independent and Republican election observers were illegally blocked or impeded in PA, NV, MI and other places. In Michigan a court order prevented them from blocking observers and the governor promptly blocked them again, this time using COVID-19 as a justification (but she didn’t stop the massive BLM “mostly peaceful protests” for that). Does this qualify as “widespread”? How can you detect fraud if you are blocked from even meaningfully observing the process? Closer to home, Registrar Mark Lunn did that right here in Ventura Country and successfully defended it in court with help of County Counsel. We pay all of their salaries.
But the biggest election fraud isn’t at the polling places, it’s in the state houses, courthouses and election departments. Do you doubt me on that? Read on ….
Why did a District court ruling block checking ID at the polls? Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Why are millions of invalid voter registrations- moved, died, forfeited- left on the books? This was made FAR worse this year when many states mailed out ballots to ALL of these. Election Integrity Project California and Judicial Watch reached a settlement with LA County earlier this year to delete 1.25 MILLION invalid voter registrations. I am told that they weren’t deleted and ballots were mailed out. This is happening in many states this year. Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
We understand that multiple jurisdictions had turnouts exceeding 100% of voter registration or unbelievably high. Do you think this indicates problems and has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Some states, such as California, now automatically register voters when they get drivers licenses, with minimal safeguards. Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Some states permit “ballot harvesting,” with varying degrees of restrictions. In California, for example, people could deliver truckloads of ballots, with minimal if any checking at polling places. Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Some states aren’t too careful about checking ballot signatures. This is especially dangerous if you aren’t very careful where and to whom you send them or give them to people at polling places without even verifying their ID. Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Did COVID-19 really make it necessary for multiple states to mail out ballots and restrict poll observers? Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Do you think that leftist activists threatening rioting, mayhem, burning and looting if the election doesn’t go their way constitutes election intimidation? Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Public schools and many private schools using similar curricula have been mostly increasingly left-biased for multiple generations and getting worse. Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Do you think that Silicon Valley big tech platforms (Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) manipulation of search results, censorship of posts, demonetizing and de-platforming political opponents, using phony “fact-checking” sites with biased interpretations, artificially starving page traffic via selective notifications, has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Polling bias was acute, absurdly in favor of Biden and Dem Senate and House candidates, not borne out by actual results. It was said to have an inhibiting effect on getting out the Republican vote. Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
Last but not least, do you think that 24/7/365 x 5 years nonstop negative media “reporting,” one-sided leftist opining, unduly influences elections? Do you think this has “widespread” impact- over multiple states?
If you don’t think this all adds up to the biggest election fraud in US history, then you’re either deaf, dumb, blind, mentally deficient, or simply in denial.
By the way, what happened to all the claims of “Russian and foreign influence” this year?
Does criticizing the voting system like this constitute “undermining our institutions?
In a conversation with a local mayor, he criticized Trump supporters (including me, I guess) for “undermining our sacred institutions, such as our voting process, by attacking them.” He’ll have a field day with this article, which I’ll make sure he gets. But a lot (not all) of the criticisms are justified. So, is it better to withhold criticism in the name of protecting the institutions’ reputations, or to address/correct their weaknesses before they undermine confidence in the entire government, Mr. lame duck mayor? He made it very clear that he was favoring the former approach. When the stakes are this high, the latter is the only sane approach, which would at least increase the possibility of fixing it before it undermines the whole system.
I was going to include a number of stories about the circumstances in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, etc., etc., etc., but it seems a waste. At this point without re-votes, simply recounting the ballots is unlikely to change anything. Good and bad ballots have already been intermingled. Unless large tranches of existing ballots are invalidated (and how would that be accomplished?), a prolonged battle just wastes time better spent indicting the coup criminals and declassifying and unredacting everything possible. If the Dems cheat at elections without consequences, then we no longer have a working representative republic. It’s time to take the gloves off. Err on the side of compromising intel sources and methods and show the entire world who the Deep State actors are and how corrupt they are. Trump should pull it down with him.- Reader Paul B.

BY JACK PHILLIPS President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested that he will continue to fight despite races in several key states showing that his path to victory is getting narrower. “If you count the legal votes I easily win,” he said at around 6:45 p.m. ET. “If you count the illegal votes,” then the race will go to […]
