Ironic, isn’t it? This could be Trump’s finest hour.
As befits the already awful year of Our Lord, 2020, the presidential election is going to come down to a nasty street fight of lawyers, public relations spin, and positioning involving four states. Donald Trump has won all four, and now he must successfully defend all four wins from the very mail-in shenanigans he (and all of us) predicted would happen months ago. This is flesh and blood people versus theoretical pieces of mail. The people must win this.
Like many, as I was transitioning from supporting Ted Cruz in the summer of 2016 to making peace with supporting Donald Trump, the main comfort I had was that Trump was a fighter, one who seemed fearless, and one who talked like a real guy instead of a political drone. Then there is the “it” factor that Trump has, a once in a lifetime gift upon the political scene. The brilliant Cruz was admittedly a bit weak on all of that. Okay, more than a bit.
At the time I was producing a series of twenty attack articles against the Republican Establishment for Steve Bannon at Breitbart, so I naturally had enjoyed — and written about — the successes during the process of Trump, Cruz, Ben Carson and Rand Paul — as they all irked the GOP-E.
And in the past four years, Trump has rarely disappointed on the fighter front. His instincts back on March 22nd were to push back against Tony Fauci, to not let “the cure be worse than the disease” regarding COVID, and he was right. Something inside was telling him that letting a narrowly focused bureaucratic scientist who hadn’t treated a human patient in 40 plus years rule the world’s economy was not a good idea. Oddly, he backed off of that fight for about seven months — possibly at the behest of NYC focused Ivanka and Jared or wimpy GOP consultants, but that’s a discussion for another article and another day.
As a result, Mr. Trump, now is the time to really fight, and fight like you’ve never fought before. Tell Ivanka and Jared and the consultants to sit down and shut up. Time for you to be you. Now is the time for the straightest, toughest, and most real unvarnished talking you have ever done. You shouldn’t have to do this, of course. You should have sailed into re-election with well over 300 Electoral votes and a booming economy. Then the scamdemic of COVID happened, with all of the complications and implications thereof and therein, and the world was turned upside down. Our economy and your political fortunes included.
Yet somehow, even with the Fauci mistake, you charged into yesterday with the incredible momentum of a winner. And you won, legitimately. Taking out the Marxist strongholds of California and New York, you won the popular vote in the other 48 state by millions. By all rights, you have won Michigan, you beat the frack out of Biden in Pennsylvania, and you held off “the damned Yankees” who have moved into Georgia and North Carolina and brought their polluting voting habits with them.
But that’s not where we are. We are still in a war, a war against an enemy, the worldwide left, that has co-opted the Democrat party, virtually the entire American media, the social media giants, Big Education, Big Entertainment and even Big Sports. Yes, the foot soldiers will be the lawyers, but this battle will have a huge public opinion angle, and that’s where you must dominate. You must make it clear to the Supreme Court justices and to everybody else that your supporters are real live people who love the country and who are passionate.
And millions of their voters are theoretical pieces of mail that may or may not have ever been in the hands of a legitimate voter. Remind people that Republicans did well in The House and The Senate, and across the country. Just ooze legitimacy, because you are the legit winner. We are the legit winners.
I wonder if the Supreme Court would have the courage to rule in favor of Trump, even in cases of obvious fraud and cheating, when it would mean widespread liberal violence?
Rioters and Looters should be treated as the Crinimals they are rounded up and sent to prison for a while depending on the crime they commited
At 5 am this morning Biden went from trailing by about 120,000 in Wisconsin to taking a lead of more than 10,000 votes. 94% reporting and 69 % going to Biden.
169,341 returned absentee ballots in Milwaukee.
I predict a recount.
We only keep as much freedom as we are willing to fight for.
There have been no cases of fraud and cheating. We have a president who has publicly declared victory before all of the ballots have been counted. It’s been known for a couple of weeks that the final election result most likely wouldn’t be known by the end of election day. It could take until the end of the week, or even longer.
This is where the electoral college count stands at the moment.
@Greg: Even as the vote was ongoing there was fraud and cheating. It is improbable that the examples found are ALL the examples. So, due to their corruption, Democrats cast doubt on the validity of the tight races. You can’t honestly deny that there has been fraud because it gets exposed on a daily basis. They only reason to deny it is to try and hide it.
There have been NO indications of fraud or cheating—unless you want to count efforts to sabotage timely mail handling and a call to cease processing timely-submitted ballots.
comrade greggy-pooo. voter fraud and harvesting is the MO for the new communist party. you should be happy if pedapile joey wins the wipe house, now you can pull your head out of your ass.
So explain this, Comrade Greggie; at approx. 4:00 am this morning, 138,399 ballots were discovered in Wisconsin and all of those votes, EVERY ONE OF THEM, went for Biden.
@retire05: “Those who vote decide nothing. Those who COUNT the votes decide everything.” Joe Biden. Or Joe somebody.
The explanation is simple: It didn’t really happen.
Biden is looking good in Arizona and Nevada, where suburban areas leaning Democratic have yet to be counted. If he also picks up Wisconsin and Michigan, where he presently has slight leads, it’s over. That would take him to 270. He only needs 43 more electoral votes. Trump’s people have done the arithmetic. That’s why they want to stop the count.
I don’t believe the Supreme Court would overturn the election result if Biden were to win both the popular vote and the electoral college vote. They know that doing so would effectively nullify the nation’s constitutional voting process.
@Greg: Bidens 600lawyers pulling lawsuits to change rules they dont like made by states now we dont have a good idea who really won. Dons announcement at 2 oclock in the morning was simply Trump being Trump, we simply shrug at some of his statements, the left must make it sound like the sky is falling. It does seem We need to have Democrat strong holds report their solid numbers before the rest of the states results, with Full bipartisan oversight.
As would accepting the vast number of fraud and questionable ballots suddenly showing up for Biden, as well as the documented fraud committed in AZ with the Sharpies.
“Nullifying the nation’s Constitutional voting process” has been the Democrat’s plan, all along.
But you knew that, didn’t you Zhang?
@kitt: The Dems pretty much said “we’re gonna cheat” and nothing could be done.
AG and Pelosi, just saying that Biden would win, as if they know, means they planned this all along.
@Nathan Blue, #13:
Ballots are not “suddenly showing up for Biden”. The counting process is simply continuing. Urban and suburban areas often take longer to complete and tend to be more heavily Democratic. Mailed and absentee ballots also take longer and tend to be more heavily Democratic. Pennsylvania wouldn’t allow the processing of mailed ballots to begin before election day. That guaranteed the count wouldn’t be done until a day or more later.
It was known this would happen weeks ago, when it became obvious that we having record levels of early voting and voting by mail just about everywhere.
No one said or implied anything of the sort.
@Greg: You know what else the Supreme Court knows? That the Electoral College decides the outcome and only the popular vote in each separate state is important. How many illegal immigrants the Democrats got to vote or how much vote harvesting they did in California is important to the outcome.
It was known because it was how the Democrats designed the fraud.
Yes they did. Pelosi and the AG of Pa, at a minimum. Add the “wargaming” by Podesta and priming the public via Hawkfish, the Dems all but admitted they were going to muddle the election they couldn’t win, projecting their fraud onto Trump.
The electoral college map has been updated. Biden is now 17 votes short of 270.
The Trump campaign says they’re suing in an effort to stop the count in both Michigan and Pennsylvania.
@Greg: According to Fox, Biden is at 264. When Nevada is called Blue, Biden wins.
But now that over half the country won’t acknowledge the result as real, the Dems are getting the civil war they wanted.
Covid was the perfect reason (strangely released right when Trump was finally holding Xi responsible for Trade) to do “mail in” voting, making ballots for people who didn’t even want one. Now, the weakest, most unfit candidate in the history of our nation got more votes than any in history?
LOL. Good luck with that.
