Democrats and China End American Democracy As It Was

Reality split for Americans long ago, in the lead-up to the Civil War, where the two sides found they cared about different things: one side cared about equality, and the other about order, and this meant that each was willing to sacrifice some of what the other wanted in order to get what it wanted.

For example, if we sidestep the question of slavery, it becomes clear that the South stood for order: social hierarchy, culture, a purposeful existence, strong faith, family, and local community. If you wanted the most logical life, you chose the South.

However, if equality served as your primary and singular concern, then the South was evil because of lack of equality. You probably care about nothing else. Thus the two sides separated, and Americans began living in entirely different realities.

With election 2020, we see the high cost of living in a split world. This week, as too many incidents were reported for all of them to be wrong, the Left accepted that vote fraud might exist, but switched to their new talking point, that it did not happen widely and is unproven.

Today, Bill Barr put his foot in it or rather, AP put it in for him:

Barr told the AP that U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints and information they’ve received, but “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

Barr didn’t name Powell specifically but said: “There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results. And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that.”

However, Barr said earlier that people were confusing the use of the federal criminal justice system with allegations that should be made in civil lawsuits. He said a remedy for many complaints would be a top-down audit by state or local officials, not the U.S. Justice Department.

In other words, the DOJ is not investigating this election; they are investigating local complaints of irregularities that violate criminal laws, not failures of election protocol or even a fraudulent election. His statement says nothing like what the AP asserts it does.

Barr makes the point that this is a civil matter, as it was in Bush v. Gore. Election security laws generally concern themselves with individuals or civil rights issues, but fraud and deception would be a civil matter or require an investigation by the voting authorities. DOJ is not involved.

As in Bush v. Gore, these various irregularities will culminate in certifications or refusal to certify in different states, and that will prompt lawsuits, and these lawsuits will then be joined into one, appealed at the state level, then appealed at the federal level, all the way to SCOTUS.

Rasmussen gives us an interesting poll which suggests that half of voters think that this election was fraudulent:

Forty-seven percent (47%) say it’s likely that Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure that Biden would win, but 50% disagree. This includes 36% who say it’s Very Likely and 41% who consider it Not At All Likely.

We now have a real crisis on our hands. Democracy in America as we knew it has ended, since we now have a population that is even more divided than the last time we saw all media and entertainment united against a president during the Reagan years. This is 1960s, or worse, 1860s, levels of fragmentation.

Then we have to look at the obvious:

  • Biden was a weak candidate. No one really liked Joe, and fewer liked Kamala; they voted against Trump.
  • Trump was incumbent. These usually win, unless there is widespread lack of enthusiasm for them which is easily overcome.
  • Trump had a massive base. Enthusiasm was high, except among the single-issue far-Right, and Trump received more votes than he thought he would get.
  • That 3:00 AM vote bump. The counting paused, something happened, and then in came the votes. This alone should be enough to re-do this election.
  • The highly specific Biden win. He did poorly in general, but in a few vital areas where he could pick up lots of votes, he did well, despite not campaigning thoroughly.
  • The changes to voting right before the election. COVID-19 justified mail-in voting, we were told, and suddenly it was important to have new rules and Dominion machines before the election.
  • The absurdly high turnout in problem areas. Contested counties seem to have picked up a lot of new residents since the census was last done the month prior.
  • The uniformity of the narrative. The media repeats the same message, in the same language, at the same time, as if coordinated through a back-channel like JournoList.

We have Trump on record complaining about vote fraud in 2012, possibly going back to 2008, and hiring Rudy Giuliani in 2018. Giuliani has a proven track record in busting organized crime, including political machines, much as Trump had to work past these people in New York during the 1980s.

As I have said consistently now, there are two issues here. The first involves securing the election, which Trump will do with a Bush v. Gore approach. The second requires him to identify those responsible and prove this to a court and the nation.

The former concerns his team now. Despite their use of tantalizing details, the end game for them is to prove that Democrats engineered a change in election protocols which was not approved by the legislature, creating a Constitutional issue with voting.

Stare decisis does the rest. The principle was established firmly with Bush v. Gore, and all the candidates knew it going into this election. No one can claim ignorance; apparently, the Democrats rolled the dice on getting away with small enough amounts of cheating that the courts would ignore it, and large-scale systemic cheating that they believed could not be proven.

America finds itself split now. Half believe that this was a fraudulent election, and the other half do not. This shows us that American democracy cannot continue to function as it has. It has gone off the deep end into pure polemic, solely because the Left seized power so aggressively.

After all, quite a bit has changed in America since 2008. Even more since 1945. Significant changes occurred in the 1960s, 1930s, and 1860s as well. With each massive change, the Left has become more powerful; this has, in turn, forced those who are not Leftist into a more radical posture.

Now the two ends of the string cannot be reconciled. One side will win and will destroy the other. If the Left wins, we become a Chinese colony. If the Right wins, we become a permanently non-Leftist state. Leftists can survive the Right winning; the converse does not seem to be true.

We can see this through the AP article. The kind of writing we see there, with its repeated use of dogwhistles and talking point tropes, stands unique among American journalism, but not in Soviet or Chinese journalism.

For example, look at the lede:

Disputing President Donald Trump’s persistent, baseless claims, Attorney General William Barr declared Tuesday the U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.

This reads like Pravda or Xinhua. Even the Nazis did not write like this; it seeks to assert an absolute truth and then repeat it as a token, as if saying you either obey this or you are out of the in-group.

Tass used to use tropes like this. We made fun of them for calling us “imperialist pig-dogs” in every seventh sentence, but it is an effective propaganda technique: repetition works. Repetition works. Repetition works.

They repeat the term “baseless” not for its news value, but as a way of inculcating that idea in our heads. They want us to memorize the phrase “baseless claims” as a way of understanding the issue, instead of considering those claims as regular claims, which might be legitimate.

Barr’s comments, in an interview with the The Associated Press, contradict the concerted effort by Trump, his boss, to subvert the results of last month’s voting and block President-elect Joe Biden from taking his place in the White House.

Now we have more narrative: Trump wants to “subvert the results,” not challenge the count. In the real world, he alleges vote fraud and wants to challenge the vote totals. In propaganda-world, the count is 100% legitimate and Trump is attempting a coup.

Other administration officials who have come out forcefully against Trump’s allegations of voter-fraud evidence have been fired.

This shows a clever linguistic sidestep. Some administration officials who have come out forcefully against Trump’s allegations have been fired, and they may have been fired for other reasons. We know that.

The Left wants you to read that sentenced as saying that anyone who rejected Trump’s allegations was fired for rejecting his allegations. However, they do not directly state that, because it is not true; they rely instead on the most pernicious form of lie, the half-truth.

The Trump campaign team led by Giuliani has been alleging a widespread conspiracy by Democrats to dump millions of illegal votes into the system with no evidence. They have filed multiple lawsuits in battleground states alleging that partisan poll watchers didn’t have a clear enough view at polling sites in some locations and therefore something illegal must have happened. The claims have been repeatedly dismissed including by Republican judges who have ruled the suits lacked evidence.

The whole point of this paragraph was to reduce the multiple lawsuits to “alleging that partisan poll watchers didn’t have a clear enough view at polling sites in some locations and therefore something illegal must have happened.” They are parodying the Trump lawsuits in order to avoid mentioning what else is in them, like poll watchers threatened, thrown out of election areas, fake ballots showing up, the dead and demented voting, and potentially, automatic vote manipulation through software.

But local Republicans in some battleground states have followed Trump in making unsupported claims, prompting grave concerns over potential damage to American democracy.

They have to repeat the idea of “baseless” and “unsupported” because that is the whole point of this article: to replace open-mindedness toward the issue with repeated catch-phrases like “baseless claims” and “unsupported claims,” as well as the idea that his lawsuits consist only of poll-watcher objections.

And these “grave concerns” over “potential damage to American democracy”? At this point, we have left behind journalism and gone into imaginative fear-selling. Democracy is not damaged by investigating claims of voting irregularities, especially when this much evidence has piled up.

Now we go into the Pravda dismissal:

The issues they’ve have pointed to are typical in every election: Problems with signatures, secrecy envelopes and postal marks on mail-in ballots, as well as the potential for a small number of ballots miscast or lost.

These are just little glitches, you see. Nothing deliberate. They are being silly! How foolish of these ignorant uneducated inbred rubes to not notice that these problems always occur, and are therefore nothing to worry about.

We are being gaslit by the media establishment.

Attorney Sidney Powell has spun fictional tales of election systems flipping votes, German servers storing U.S. voting information and election software created in Venezuela “at the direction of Hugo Chavez,” – the late Venezuelan president who died in 2013. Powell has since been removed from the legal team after an interview she gave where she threatened to “blow up” Georgia with a “biblical” court filing.

At this point, the fantasy compounds. Powell was not removed from the legal team; it was clarified that she is leading her own effort, since she is collecting funds to do so. Are these tales really “fictional”? The goal at AP seems to be to dismiss the possibility of evidence, not consider it.

They did all this to hide two words:

Barr didn’t name Powell specifically but said: “There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results. And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that.”

So far. Then again, DOJ does not know where to look, nor is it the DOJ’s job to enforce election standards. The DOJ investigates crimes, and does so after the fact, where Democrats specialize in acting quickly to erase data so that investigations after the fact are useless.

Now way down in the article, we get the half-truth that should have been the lede:

However, Barr said earlier that people were confusing the use of the federal criminal justice system with allegations that should be made in civil lawsuits. He said a remedy for many complaints would be a top-down audit by state or local officials, not the U.S. Justice Department.

He is saying, “This is Bush v. Gore territory, with one candidate suing for relief on Constitutional grounds.”

He did not reject what Trump has said; he simply noted that his department is not overseeing this, and has looked into local problems, and that so far, his team has not noticed anything more widespread. Do they know where to look? Why would they bother, if this will be a civil case anyway?

“Most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct. … And those have been run down; they are being run down,” Barr said. “Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes. They have been followed up on.”

Indeed. The DOJ can focus on specific crimes; it does not do as well with conspiracies, political machines, organized crime, or international election interference. It has no idea what to look for, where to look, or who to look at. They had this same problem with the mafias in Giuliani’s day.

Americans a generation ago would have found themselves appalled by the writing in this piece. They would have seen this as government propaganda reeking of the same things that we saw written on the other side of the Iron Curtain. This would have alienated them immediately.

Many of us still retain that sensibility. We recognize that the media and technology firms seem united in presenting this narrative, as do China and the Democrats. How interesting.

We believe, with good reason when we look at all of the facts together, instead of a cherry-picked half of them at once, that the Left attempted a coup in this election. They faked the vote, but did not plan for enough votes because the Trump surge was rather large, so they shut down the voting in carting in the fake ballots by the truckload to swing the election for Biden.

They still think that they will get away with it. After all, the fix is in. All of the relevant parties have been bribed, threatened, or blackmailed into submission. They will all echo the narrative just like this AP article did, hoping to get to the point where Biden can seize power.

Once he does, he will cease our separation from China, allowing their industrial espionage and relentless purchases of US firms to take over the country. This will give them enough power to buy or swing any future election.

They will import tens of millions more illegals, in order to have enough plausible votes that Republicans will never win again. As they have talked about, they are already planning retribution against guys from the other side.

We know this is the case because this is what Leftists do. This is how they took over numerous countries during the twentieth century. When they got power, they did what they always do, which is remove the opposition.

It can happen here, and they want it to.

Trump finds himself playing a difficult game. He has to look weak and confused enough to keep them guessing about what he knows. Any legitimate charges have to be buried among a series of less-accurate ones. And he must give them something to mock, like his orange tan or Giuliani’s hair dye.

In the end, he will be defending the autonomy of this country. In my view, he knew this was coming, and planned for it for years, and has something big that he will not yet reveal. In fact, he is obscuring it behind falsehoods. His goal is to catch them unawares and then, remove them before they can destroy us.
