Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell created a stir by calling Joe Biden “president-elect” following Monday’s Electoral College vote. Meanwhile, senator and former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney urged President Donald Trump to “move on.” Sorry, but there are still serious issues of fraud related to this election. To abandon the quest for the truth would be a disservice to the American people.
Of course, it’s understandable that people are tired of arguing whether a national election was fraudulent or not. We’d only note that the modern use of voting machines and vote-by-mail that make election fraud far easier is largely a “progressive” project, created to make voting less secure and less transparent, not more.
Even so, and apart from the crucial upcoming U.S. Senate runoff election in Georgia, there’s good reason not to listen to either McConnell or Romney or, for that matter, any of the many “Never-Trumpers” in the GOP who seem eager, anxious even, to get rid of Trump. They want him to fold his tent and walk away.
We can only guess why. But what’s most important now is that we determine the scale and scope of the electoral fraud and whether it truly handed the election to Biden. If so, Trump becomes president.
And, in truth, no matter what the Electoral College said on Monday, if massive fraud is in evidence in the states, the election results cannot stand. And there’s plenty of evidence of that tumbling out by the day.
By now we’ve all heard the stories of vote counts being suspended in the middle of the night, with Trump having a massive lead, only to be continued in the early morning with a shocking and statistically near-impossible number of votes being dumped into the hopper for Biden.
We’ve also heard of strange glitches in the Dominion voting computers that, mysteriously, changed Trump votes to Biden votes.
We’ve all heard too of the back-room counting by local election officials, illegally excluding Republican poll observers from making sure the count was fair. And of the coincidence that Biden won suspiciously and improbably large majorities in major cities in four vital swing states — Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia — that were key to a Trump electoral victory.
But this week, even more evidence of fraud has come to light, calling the 2020 election further into question.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the state’s absentee ballot distribution violated state law and that “Gov. Tony Evers and other state and municipal officers did not have the legal authority to expand the definition of ‘indefinitely confined’ citizens to permit absentee voting without showing a state ID.”
A Michigan judge ordered the release of a “damning forensics report” on the Dominion Vote Tabulation System, which was used in Antrim County. The shocking report comes to a frightening determination: “We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results.” (Italics ours.)
But, you say, it’s just one little county in one state.
No. In fact, according to the Wikipedia entry on Dominion, “In total, 28 states used Dominion voting machines to tabulate their votes during the 2020 United States presidential election, including most of the swing states.” How many of those machines were reprogrammed or repurposed to “create systemic fraud and influence election results”?
But if Monday was the official certification of the Electoral College vote, isn’t it all moot?
Not at all. Trump adviser Stephen Miller told Fox News’ Fox & Friends Monday that contested states, including Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, and possibly Arizona and Nevada, will send “alternate” slates of Trump electors to Congress, which meets on Jan. 6 to count the electoral votes and declare a presidential winner.
Should the Trump campaign and its attorneys prevail in their legal actions alleging election fraud in the contested states, Congress would have the ability if not the obligation to certify the Trump electors.
“The only date in the Constitution is Jan. 20,” Miller told Fox. “We have more than enough time to right the wrong of this fraudulent election result and certify Donald Trump as the winner of the election.”
If all this maneuvering seems futile, it isn’t. The Democrats have a long tradition of election shenanigans. They spent Trump’s four years illegally undermining his presidency through Deep State allies and even impeaching him earlier this year on entirely false charges.
With the Durham investigation into possible misconduct still ongoing, we may yet see indictments for the illegal behavior, of which Biden as vice president was aware. And we may also find out the full scope of Hunter Biden’s profiteering in China, Russia and Ukraine from exploiting his father’s position in the Obama White House. Influence peddling is a crime, you know.
Moreover, while Democrats have recently called for “unity,” that’s something they never offered Trump after his stunning upset of Hillary Clinton in 2016. Instead, Democrats right now are creating “enemies lists” of Trump supporters and aides for retribution after Biden takes office.
In his speech Monday following the Electoral College vote, Biden had a chance to be magnanimous in his apparent victory. Instead, he excoriated and insulted both Trump and those who voted for him. Calls for “unity” ring hollow.
So Mitch and Mitt are wrong: Trump and the GOP have no choice but to fight on. Either they challenge the increasing lawlessness of the far-left Democrats, who value their power over our freedom, or let the U.S. become a one-party progressive-socialist state with rigged presidential elections every four years.
And the time to fight is now, not later. This isn’t just about fixed elections or even about Trump. It’s about the future of our republic. If we lose that, we’ve lost everything.
