Democrats messed up they New York City mayoral primary by including 130,000-plus “test run” votes in the tabulation of the votes. The first reaction in the media was not that this was a scandal and someone should walk the plank. No, the kneejerk reaction was OMG, this helps Trump!
Ah, New York, New York. If they can fake it there, they’ll fake it anywhere.
The Washington Post immediately went into its Frank Drebin mode.
It posted a story, “New York’s mayoral election is a mess. This doesn’t somehow prove Donald Trump right.”
The Hill used seize in a headline, which is journalese for Democrats screwed up.
It said, “Trump, GOP seize on NY election board problems.”
The story began, “The New York City Board of Elections is facing mounting criticism after it erroneously released — and later retracted — a botched tally of votes in the city’s closely watched Democratic mayoral primary.
“The problems in New York have also provided a new talking point for former President Trump and his allies, who have spent months seeking to sow distrust in the electoral process.”
The media knows the primary meltdown indeed lends credence to Donald Trump’s unexamined claim that Democrats stole the 2020 election.
None dare say that for fear of banishment by Twitter.
One thing about The Donald is he never lies. They said he would not be nominated. He was. They said he would lose to Hillary. He won. They said Obama did not wiretap him. Obama did. They said his tax cuts would not work. The cuts did.
Moving the embassy to Jerusalem did not start World War III. Calling Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man” did not start World War III. Killing General Soleimani did not start World War III.
And under Biden, we learn the illegals do include rapists, murderers, and terrorists.
Only the dumbest people in the world idiot would ignore his claims of voter fraud based on his track record.
Now you know who America’s journalists are.
Not all of them.
The Week reported, “New York hands Trump a victory on election unreliability.”
It was a red-pilled story, which ended, “This is bad. The United States is undergoing a precipitous collapse in the authority of its institutions, public as well as private, that is driven, in part, by evidence of their incompetence and corruption. Self-government, meanwhile, depends on the existence of institutions that can be trusted to determine the outcome of election contests fairly and accurately. Put those two facts together and we’re left with the extremely dangerous possibility that the official results of elections will be routinely rejected by participants and their supporters.
““The problems in New York have also provided a new talking point for former President Trump and his allies, who have spent months seeking to sow distrust in the electoral process.””
aka “empirical evidence”.
Democrats claim this kind of crap doesn’t happen… CAN’T happen. Yet, here it is. If they pull this kind of shit in a Democrat primary, just IMAGINE what they are willing to do against a Republican.
And, what do the Democrats do in the face of an obvious catastrophe? Well, what they usually do; “Nothing to see here. Everything is under control”. I’ll say.
The “law and order” Democrat… not to be confused with someone actually dedicated to “law and order”… was leading by 12 points. Suddenly, he was only leading by 2 points. When he saw what happened, he raised concerns, which was greeted with the Trump treatment; “You’re casting doubt on elections! You’re a threat to Democracy!” Only, in this case, someone was willing to admit there was a problem.
Will there be an investigation to see how 135,000 “test votes” got injected into the votes cast? Yeah, sure. Right after Trump’s allegations are adjudicated.
“…Democrats claim this kind of crap doesn’t happen… CAN’T happen…”
When did GW and Jeb switch parties? They both have said
“Joe won “fair and square”” many times the last 8 months. GWB said it many times on all “news” networks in May ’21
Again; has GWB admitted that he is, and always was, a Democrat?
And has Karl R also announced on Fox he is “D”?
It is true that most members of THE UNIPARTY are “D”. A very large minority, not quite half, claim to be “R”. Some names: Bush, P:. Ryan, Rove.
NYCity is using the Ranked Choice Voting system that “allows” voters to rank their choices up to thru 5 options.
This violates the “one voter, one vote,” principle.
If, in the primary, you didn’t vote for one of the top contenders, instead of getting to vote in a runoff, his votes are considered “exhausted,” and he’s shut out.
It also leads to many situations where the top vote getter actually loses the election!
EXAMPLE: The Maine election had Bruce Poliquin leading in the first round with a plurality of votes (45.6%) amongst four candidates.
He was leading, true, but didn’t command a majority.
So, ranked-choice eliminations took place. 8.1% of the total votes went to candidates that weren’t viable.
When those candidates were eliminated and votes shifted to next ranked-choices, Poliquin ended up with 49.5% of the vote, short of the majority needed to win (Jared Golden won with 50.5%).
It just adds a layer of complexity to what should be a straight up election. This makes fraud and manipulation easier and more easily concealed.
Conservatives eight (8) TIMES FROM 11/20 TO 4/21 went to court with evidence of stolen election. Eight times GWB’s John Roberts said you can not present your evidence!?!?@#%^!
Bush made no mistake with Roberts!
