Once upon a time, back when I was younger and more naive, I believed that the voting process in this country was sacred. Sure, I was aware of the Chicago Machine, Tammany Hall in New York, and a few scattered, isolated incidents of ballot stuffing. Of course, I knew about the Klan and voter intimidation and poll taxes and other methods to rig elections. But I truly thought those were from a bygone era.
The recent revelations in the 2016 election have made it clear that election rigging is alive and well in the United States of America.
The James O’Keefe videos from Project Veritas prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that people will do anything they can to steal an election. These videos prove a concerted conspiracy to organize people and descend upon a state with illegal voters who employ techniques from registering and voting illegal aliens to registering and voting dead people.
The Chicago Machine, Tammany Hall, poll taxes, the KKK, and registering illegals and dead people to vote all have one thing in common. Democrats. That’s not to say that Republicans haven’t committed voter fraud, but the vast majority of it is by Democrats.
Yes, Donald Trump said some crass and offensive things when he didn’t know he was being recorded, but it’s crystal clear that the Access Hollywood tape was a weapon the Democrats held and deployed at a strategic time in this election. It’s also apparent that the parade of Trump accusers meant to fit nicely with the words on that tape were orchestrated and planned well in advance.
Obviously, the Democrats have had the tape since Trump announced he was running for president. It’s also obvious from the Wikileaks e-mails that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats wanted desperately for Trump to get the Republican nomination. That’s why they sat on the tape throughout the primaries. They fully expected to be 20 points ahead a month before the election. When they weren’t, they knew Donald Trump must be destroyed.
The allegations have been so over the top that they may have overplayed their hand. The countless accusations of public groping stretch credulity. It’s not as though no one had ever heard of Donald Trump. Had such conduct been commonplace the media would surely have gotten wind of it before now.
And what of the accusers? The woman who says she was groped on the airplane 30 years ago, it turns out, has been in a long property dispute with one of Trump’s golf courses. Many of the other women have turned out to be Democrat operatives and/or Hillary contributors and supporters. One woman was a reporter for People Magazine, for Pete’s sake. She was tasked with interviewing Trump. Don’t you think such a salacious story would’ve made the cover of that gossip rag had it been true?
We now have a very public view of an overt attempt to steal an election. This is no longer the stuff of the tinfoil hat crowd. It’s now all out in the open. The Wikileaks e-mails and the O’Keefe tapes prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt. But the scariest part is how the mainstream media ignore both. Time was when they were the watchdogs of these corrupt SOBs who were trying to steal elections. They are now their lap dogs.
Heaven knows that Trump is an imperfect candidate, but he is the rage against the machine. He is our only hope that the people can triumph over the evil that has infested our election process. God help us all if he fails.
