The American republic depends on public confidence in election integrity, Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at the Federalist, a Fox News contributor, and the author of Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections, said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak.
Hemingway remarked, “You cannot have a republic if you can’t have confidence in elections. If you don’t have free and fair and trusted and transparent elections, you don’t have a republic. This is an existential threat. Everybody needs to care about it and not make it a partisan issue. It needs to be something that everybody understands. Democracy depends, not just on the winner, but on the consent of the loser, and you’re not going to have that if you have corrupted elections.”
Pollak, author of Neither Free nor Fair: The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, praised Hemingway’s research of the 2020 presidential election in her latest book. He described it as the definitive account of the election’s political corruption.
“You really go into the weeds here, and that’s why this book is so great,” he said of Rigged. “This is really going to be the reference, I think, going forward.”
Hemingway stated, “The mail-in ballot operation was about so much. It was about changing the laws governing how we vote, about flooding the elections with ballots that were going to addresses that maybe weren’t tied to the actual voter, and then also decreased scrutiny aligned with those mail-in ballots — [such as] not having voter ID or not having appropriate signature matches, or allowing ballot harvesting — all these other issues are brought in with this flood of mail-in balloting.”
She highlighted how changes to election laws in various states were implemented, ostensibly, as public health measures to reduce coronavirus transmission.
“I think chaos was the actual goal [of the mail-in ballot operation],” Hemingway stated. “The Democratic operation [is] about changing laws in every state that they can, and just making it difficult to know what the law is, expanding the fear of possible litigation, and then having different standards for the scrutiny applied to ballots.”
She emphasized, “The chaos was the design. That’s what Democrats wanted. They wanted a mess of election laws that they could litigate better or have more opportunities for litigation.”
She continued, “There are a lot of things that can go wrong without [the counting of a ballot] being fraud, but it can still be illegal. … Mail-in balloting [has] much less oversight than day-of-election in-person voting.”
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s funding of election operations amounted to a private corruption of what should be an exclusively public endeavor, Hemingway determined.
“We had a private takeover of government election offices, funded to the tune of $419 million by Mark Zuckerberg, which brings in an army of left-wing activists to handle everything from voter registration to ballot design, to ballot translation, to get-out-the-vote operations, to ballot counting,” she said.
She concluded, “All of these issues then become very important and systematically corrupt the election process.”
Hemingway assessed that state governments allowing Zuckerberg to fund election operations under the guise of a philanthropic public health endeavor was the product of a failure of imagination on the part of Republicans to envision such corruption.
She said, “[Wisconsin] was one of the states that was hit hard with the Zuckerberg funding that meant that there was a takeover of government election offices by private money, and these people [in Wisconsin] said, ‘We had no idea it was even happening. We never even thought it could happen that one tech oligarch could take over the election administration in our state,’ so they didn’t make it illegal because they didn’t even have the imagination to think it could happen.”
“There was no bar — unbelievably — on private funding of government election offices, by one party or another,” she explained.
The democrat party cheated and stole the 2020 election. Over 53% of respondents in a recent poll believe the wrong person is in the WH.
Trump and his supporters are purposely destroying confidence in the election process. His entire political strategy is based on that.
Democrats did that by making them fraudulent.
Projection. YOu can’t dump thousands of votes in the night and change election rules and then say the other side is destroying the election process.
This is all Democrat cheating, period.
Their entire political strategy was to use a strangely timed virus and questional software to rig and election.
Half of us don’t buy it, so Biden is not the president of anything.

“Hemingway assessed that state governments allowing Zuckerberg to fund election operations under the guise of a philanthropic public health endeavor was the product of a failure of imagination on the part of Republicans to envision such corruption.” That’s the problem, I guess, with not having enough corrupt criminals in your party. Democrats don’t suffer from that deficiency.
Democrats’ pretention to care about the freedom of elections is fooling no one. What they care about is keeping the door open to the level of election fraud they need, which is going to be a lot. But they don’t care about everyone’s right to vote; they only care about CONTROLLING the vote. For instance, 83,000 votes in Arizona that cannot be tied to actual voters in reality negates 83,000 legitimate votes and voters. Securing election integrity is the ONLY way to make votes count.
An idiot like Biden only gets into office through fraud. More fraud will mean more idiots and more failure.
Zuckerfuck committed serious felonies and should be in prison
I did a search for basement joe campaigning on, unrestricted immigration at the southern border, surrendering to an unworthy enemy giving them 83 billion of functioning state of the art military equipment, leaving Americans stranded in a foreign hostile country, knowingly allowing 13 service members to be killed, launched a drone strike killing an innocent family including seven children, creating energy dependency where only a year ago we were energy independent, running inflation up to 5.4% and heading to economic malaise not seen since jimmie carter, steering the economy toward a certain recession, fourth quarter GDP estimates went down to 1.2% from an earlier forecasted 6.2%., gasoline and winter heatin fuel prices set to skyrocket and intentionally mucking up the supply chain infrastructure to creat unnecessary shortages.
Can not remember joe campaigning in that. Darn sure if he had, the cheating the democrat party would have had to do would have been legendary.
Two Long-Serving Democrats Calling It Quits — Bow Out
The democrat party is about to have a mid term blood bath. This the third democrat in a week who has announced that they would not seek re-election.
democrats stand at the moment to lose between 60-100 seats in the house.
Sorry, but the Democrat party IS NOT “about to have a mid term bloodbath”. If you harbor any lingering doubts, merely think back to the recent recall election in Kali. Does anybody seriously entertain a reasonable doubt that, absent massive vote fraud, Newsome would have been out on his elitist ass? Now project that to the upcoming mid terms.
” Bloodbath” my rosy red!
Bill Mullins, I agree with you. The Dems learned they could cheat on a large scale in November 2020. Now they will perfect that to manipulate elections on state levels, i.e. the Newsome recall.
And just as an “insurance policy” against a disgruntled middle class that might jump ship and vote GOP in 2022, 2024, Biden is making sure he is importing a new voting bloc for the Dems. There are another 100,000 on their way not yet reaching the Texas state line.
This is Cloward and Piven writ large.
Trump represents normal free and fair elections, in accordance with out Consitutional democracy.
Democrats have cleverly masked their cheating to say that Republicans are cheating when they try to stop Democrats from cheating….
the end result is this: our Republic ended on Jan. 6th, 2020, and free citizens in the states have no legal compunction to follow or obey the Federal Government. It’s illegitimate and tyrannical.
Trump can still restore our democracy, which is why paid-greg has to parrot his Trump Derangement every three seconds.
It’s his job.
Not one of Trump’s many “stolen elections” claims was supported by credible evidence. NOT A SINGLE ONE.
He’s presently trying to block the release of White House documents to a congressional investigative committee.
You can’t figure this out yet?
Why do you keep calling your favorite candidate a liar?
Only a few months ago, prominent Democrats were expressing concern about Dominion. Just last year, Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) investigated Dominion Voting Systems and concluded that the company posed a concern to the integrity of American elections. “We have concerns about the spread and effect of private equity equipment in many sectors of the economy, including the election technology industry.” They added, “These problems threaten the integrity of our elections and demonstrate the importance of election systems that are strong, durable, and not vulnerable to attack.”
A single batch from Milwaukee…
That one batch alone would have flipped the state to Biden,” Waldron said. “The problem with a spike like this is a massive numerical amount of votes are processed in a time period that is not feasible or mechanically possible.” He added, “A big spike [in such an impossibly narrow window of time] shooting up is a prime indicator of fraudulent voting.”
Not mechanically possible!
Like your car going 10K miles an hour Greg, not mechanically possible.
The lie that the machines were no connected to the internet, machines that children hacked in under 10 minutes.
Unfortunately for you, if over half of us don’t think the election was legit, it doesn’t count.
Biden won nothing. Too much evidence of cheating.
I love how you make sure to say “credible” evidence, because you know….
….you know. The election was rigged. We know it. You know it.
Biden is President because he won. Trump isn’t, because he didn’t. There’s no credible evidence to the contrary. That’s as real as it get.
Idiot Biden is a fraudulently installed despot. The pathetic fact is, you know it and you accept it. Your job is to lie about it, as if that will make others ignore the massive evidence of fraud and election theft.
Biden “won” the same way Putin, Xi, and Maduro won.
Trump got 75 million legal votes, most likely more.
The very clear evidence, credible evidence, staring everyone in the face that the election was rigged isn’t open for debate.
Besides, you cheaters are going to lie when caught.
Biden is not the president of the United States and never will be.
You have to win a fair and free election for that.
So Trump stole the 2016 election. You and your party pushed that garbage for years. Yet the 2020 election was perfection and no one can question it.
You really are a sucker. How do you not get tired of grabbing your ankles for the democrat party?
It seems President Trump is on a path to Speaker, then re-election
The democrat party and rino republicans fear President Trump. They do not fear him as a person, rather what he represents.
He is not establishment malleable. He poses an imminent danger to the culture within political Washington DC. And, he is the first President of the people since Ronald Reagan. That is what fears them the most. President Trump put the American people in the room with a say so in matters concerning them.
The political elite with the Washington culture needs a populace of conformity. Speaking out and expressing opposing views is a direct threat to their cult. Why else would the media along with big tech squash every effort to expose the corruption with the political elite’s cult?
I have said a few times before, the Washington cult is the junk yard dog. If you enter their environment, prepare yourself for a fight, and they mean it. Just look at all of the castigating against the American people.
Insurrectionists, domestic terrorists, the list goes on and on…
“You cannot have a republic if you can’t have confidence in elections,”
From where I sit that was the goal all along. The ONLY sort of “republic” the left desires is one with the words “Democratic People’s” in its name!

Now, THAT’S journalism. Maybe they are simply ashamed their propaganda wasn’t good enough.
Virginia wasn’t a “come back”. That’s what 2020 would have looked like without the copy machines.
Who in their right mind, other than a communist democrat, would vote for a piece of shit who says that parents have no place in their children’s education?
And, supports a school board that encourages raping teenage girls in the girls restroom disguised as a girl?
And has the father, who speaks out about his daughter being raped while at school, arrested as a domestic terrorist?
These are policies of the leftists communists that are not in sync with the American people.
Embrace that suck, greg…
Democrats will vote for anyone that is Democrat. They aren’t capable of logical thought. Only in McAuliffe’s case, he made himself so repugnant that even some Democrats rejected him. Those Democrats got a dose of having their rights taken away right before their eyes and didn’t like it much. If only the national Democrats would have that awakening, we’d all be much better off.
What political consultant thought lashing out at parents and then at white teachers was a good winning political strategy?
Democrats believe they can do and say anything they want and the media will protect them. The media indeed tried, but McAuliffe telling parents to go f**k themselves as the rape cover-up was exposed and then the racists tried (and failed) to paint Youngkin as a racist was more than they could control.
The Democrats’ main weapons are weakening. Fraud is all they have left.
