The Real Insurrection was by the Left: Thread by @martyrmade

I’ve had discussions at this point with a wide range of Trump supporters who believe the 2020 election was fraudulent. I think I can extract a general theory about their perspective. It is also the perspective of most of the people who were at the Capitol on January 6, and probably even that of Trump himself. 

Most of these people believe some or all of the various theories involving midnight ballots, voting machines, etc. But what you find when you talk to them is that, while they’ll defend those positions with information they got from Hannity or Breitbart or various other sources, they’re not particularly attached to them. If the theories were disproven, it wouldn’t disprove the fraud for them. That’s because there are far more important facts—actual, confirmed facts—that shape their perspective. Here they are:

A Glimpse Behind the Curtain 

To begin with, the FBI and other intelligence agencies spied on the 2016 Trump campaign using evidence manufactured by the Clinton campaign. We now know that all involved knew this evidence was fake from Day One (see just for one example: this memo from July of 2016 by former CIA director John Brennan). 

Many of the people who believe in fraud are Tea Party people. The types who give their kids a pocket Constitution for their birthday and have Founding Fathers memes in their bios. To them, the intel community spying on a presidential campaign using fake evidence (including falsified documents) is a big deal. Everyone involved lied about their involvement as long as they could. This was true with everyone, from Brennan and Representative Adam Schiff—who were on TV saying they’d seen clear evidence of collusion with Russia, while admitting under oath behind closed doors that they hadn’t—all the way down the line. In the end we learned that it was all fake. But we only learned key information—including that the DNC paid for the manufactured evidence—because of a court order. James Comey denied on TV knowing the DNC paid for it, when we have emails from a year earlier proving that he knew

At first, many Trump supporters were worried there must be some collusion, because every media and intelligence agency wouldn’t make it up out of nothing. When it was clear that they had made it up, people expected a reckoning. When that didn’t happen, they shed many illusions about their government. 

We also know, as fact:

  1. That the fraudulent Steele Dossierwas the sole evidence used to justify spying on the Trump campaign,
  2. That the FBI knew the Steele dossier was a DNC op,
  3. That Steele’s source told the FBI the info was unserious, and
  4. That they did not inform the court of any of this and kept spying.

Trump supporters know this collusion case front and back. They went from worrying the collusion must be real, to suspecting it might be fake, to realizing it was a scam. Then they watched as every institution—agencies, the press, Congress, academia—gaslit them for another year. 

Worse, collusion was used to scare people away from working in the administration. They knew their entire lives would be investigated. Many quit because they were being bankrupted by legal fees. The Department of Justice, press, & government destroyed lives and actively subverted an elected administration throughout the whole affair. 

This is where people whose political identity was largely defined by a naïve belief in what they learned in Civics class began to see the outline of a Regime that crossed all institutional boundaries. Because it had stepped out of the shadows to unite against an interloper. 

The Lies 

GOP propaganda still has many of these Trump supporters thinking in terms of partisan binaries. But a whole lot of them see that the Regime is not partisan. They all know that the same institutions would have taken opposite sides if it was a Tulsi Gabbard vs. Jeb Bush election. It’s hard to describe to people on the Left, who are used to thinking of the American government as a conspiracy (see for example, Watergate, COINTELPRO, the Weapons of Mass Destruction, etc.) how shocking and disillusioning this was for people who encourage their sons to enlist in the Army, and who are appalled when others don’t stand for the Anthem.

They could have managed that shock if it only involved the government. But the behavior of the corporate press is really what radicalized them. They hate journalists more than they hate any politician or government official, because they feel most betrayed by them. The idea that the press is driven by ratings and sensationalism became untenable. If that were true, they’d be all over the Jeffrey Epstein story. The corporate press is the propaganda arm of the Regime they now see in outline. Nothing anyone says will ever make them unsee that, period. 

This is profoundly disorienting. Many of them don’t know for certain whether ballots were faked in November 2020, but they know for absolute certain that the press, the FBI, etc., would lie to them if there was. They have every reason to believe that, and it’s probably true. They watched the press behave like animals for four years. Tens of millions of people will always see Brett Kavanaugh as a gang rapist, based on nothing, because of CNN. And CNN seems proud of that. They led a lynch mob against a high school kid. They cheered on a summer of riots. 

Trump supporters always claimed the media had liberal bias. Fine, whatever: they still thought the press would admit truth if they were cornered. They don’t think that anymore. It’s a different thing to watch them invent stories whole cloth in order to destroy regular lives and spark mass violence. Timemagazine told us that during the 2020 riots, there were weekly conference calls involving—among others—leaders of the protests, the local officials who refused to stop them, and media people who framed them for political effect. In Ukraine we call that a color revolution. 

Then, throughout the summer, establishment governors took advantage of COVID to change voting procedures. It wasn’t just the mail-ins: they also lowered signature matching standards, got rid of voter ID and notarization requirements, and much more. Forget the ballot conspiracies. It’s a fact that governors used COVID to unconstitutionally alter election procedures (the Constitution states that only legislatures can do so) and help Biden to make up for a massive enthusiasm gap by gaming the mail-in ballot system. 

At this point Trump people had lived through not only the collusion scam but also a fake impeachment. We now know that Trump’s request for Ukraine to cooperate with the Department of Justice regarding Biden’s financial activities in Ukraine was in support of an active investigation being pursued by the FBI and Ukraine Attorney General at the time, and so a completely legitimate request. So Trump people expected shenanigans by now. 

Then you get the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Big Tech ran a full-on censorship campaign against a major newspaper to protect a political candidate. Period. Everyone knows it, all of the Tech companies now admit it was a “mistake“—but, ya know, the election’s over, so who cares? It hardly needs saying that if the New York Times had Don, Jr.’s laptop, full of pics of him smoking crack and engaging in group sex, lots of lurid family drama, emails describing direct corruption and backed up by the CEO of the company they were using, the New York Times would not have been banned. 

So now think back: Stories about Trump being pissed on by Russian prostitutes and blackmailed by Putin were promoted as fact, and the only evidence was a document paid for by his opposition and disavowed by its source. And then the New York Postwas banned for reporting on true information. 

The reaction of Trump people to all this was not, “no fair!” That’s how they felt about Romney’s “binders of women” in 2012. This is different. Now they see, correctly, that every institution is captured by ppl who will use any means to exclude them from the political process. And yet they showed up in record numbers to vote. He got 13 million more votes than in 2016—10 million more than Hillary Clinton. As election night dragged on, Trump supporters allowed themselves some hope.

But when the four critical swing states (and only those states) went dark at midnight, they knew. 

The Aftermath 

Over the ensuing weeks, they got shuffled around by grifters and media scam artists selling them conspiracy theories. They latched onto one, then another increasingly absurd theory as they tried to put a concrete name on something very real. Media and Tech did everything to make things worse. Everything about the election was strange—the changes to procedure, unprecedented mail-in voting, the delays, etc.—but rather than admit that and make everything transparent, they banned discussion of it (even in DMs!). 

Everyone knows that, just as Don, Jr.’s laptop would’ve been the story of the century, if everything about the election dispute was the same, except the parties were reversed, suspicions about the outcome would’ve been Taken Very Seriously. See 2016 for proof

Even the courts’ refusal to hear the fraud case gets nowhere with those who have seen these truths, because the opposition embraced mass political violence. Trump supporters say, with good reason: What judge will stick his neck out for Trump knowing he’ll be destroyed in the media as a violent mob burns down his house? 

It’s a fact, according to Time, that mass riots were planned in cities across the country if Trump won. Sure, they were “protests,” but they were planned by the same people as during the summer, and everyone knows what it would have meant. Judges have families, too. 

Trump voters knew the changes to election law were unconstitutional, it’s right there in plain English. But they knew the cases wouldn’t see court until after the election. And what judge will toss millions of ballots because a governor broke the rules? The threat of mass riots wasn’t implied, it was direct. 

The entrenched bureaucracy and security state subverted Trump from Day One. The press was part of the operation. Election rules were changed. Big Tech censored opposition. Political violence was legitimized and encouraged. And Trump was banned from social media. People are putting these things together into a very ugly—and quite accurate—account of how their country works. 

Trump voters were led down some rabbit holes. But they are absolutely right that their government is monopolized by a Regime that believes they are beneath representation, and will observe no limits to keep them getting it. Trump fans should be happy he lost. It might’ve kept him alive.

And the follow up article from the same author

I quit Twitter last August. Quit for good. Other than posting links to two new episodes of my podcast, I stayed away for eight months and didn’t regret a thing. Around mid-June I let myself  be persuaded that social media engagement was part of having a podcast, so I dipped back in, promising myself I’d avoid being pulled into politics. Things haven’t gone as planned. 

The temptation was disguised cleverly as a conversation with a friend’s mother. She was visiting from upstate New York and we got to talking while my buddy was in the house tending to my goddaughter. She’s a hardcore Trumper from a less cynical generation that believes what she hears from sources she trusts. She’d been hounding her son about the stolen election all week, and he’d been trying to disabuse her of various theories involving trucked-in ballots and hacked counting machines. Now she had me cornered and put the question to me: “Do YOU think the election was legit?” So I told her the truth: I don’t know.

By the time my friend had put the baby to bed and rejoined us, we were waist-deep in a discussion about what happened last year, and she was satisfied that I was on her side. “See?!? He (she meant me) knows what’s going on! I’m not crazy. He’s smart, and HE knows!” My friend pulled the Captain Picard facepalm, and said, “Darryl, what the f*ck are you telling her?”

What I told her was some version of the Twitter thread Tucker Carlson read on  air Friday night and which President Trump, using my name, then explicitly promoted in his speech to CPAC on Sunday, which has blown my inbox, and my promise to stay away from politics, to smithereens.

I told her I didn’t know much about the ballots, or the voting machines, or some company that she’d heard had ties to Venezuela. I didn’t follow Sidney Powell, or Lin Wood, or the details of the cases proceeding through the system. I think it was around the time Rudy Giuliani chose a landscape and gardening emporium as the location for a press conference on what would have been the greatest political scandal in American history that I made the conscious decision to stop paying attention. Or maybe it was the dripping hair dye, or something about a kraken — it’s all sort of blended together these days.

But I felt for her. She wasn’t the first person with whom I’d had the discussion, and I felt for all of them. I’ve had the discussion often enough that I feel comfortable extracting a general theory about where these people are coming from.


RUSSIAGATE: THE ORIGINAL SIN

Like my friend’s mother, most of them believe some or all of the theories involving fraudulent ballots, voting machines, and the rest. Scratch the surface and you’ll find that they’re not particularly attached to any one of them. The specific theories were almost a kind of synecdoche, a concrete symbol representing a deeply felt, but difficult to describe, sense that whatever happened in 2020, it was not a meaningfully democratic presidential election. The counting delays, the last-minute changes to election procedures, the unprecedented coordinated censorship campaign by Big Tech in defense of Biden were all understood as the culmination of the pan-institutional anti-Trump campaign they’d watched unfold for over four years.

Many of them deny it now, but a lot of 2016 Trump voters were worried during the early stages of the Russia collusion investigation. True, the evidence seemed thin, and the very idea that the US and allied security apparatus would allow Trump to take office if they really thought he might be under Russian blackmail seemed a bit preposterous on its face. But to many conservatives in 2016 and early 2017, it seemed equally preposterous that the institutions they trusted, and even the ones they didn’t, would go all-in on a story if there wasn’t at least something to it. Imagine the consequences for these institutions if it turned out there was nothing to it.

We now know that the FBI and other intelligence agencies conducted covert surveillance against members of the Trump campaign based on evidence manufactured by political operatives working for the Clinton campaign, both before and after the election. We know that those involved with the investigation knew the accusations of collusion were part of a campaign “approved by Hillary Clinton… to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.” They might have expected such behavior from the Clintons — politics is a violent game and Hillary’s got a lot of scalps on her wall. But many of the people watching this happen were Tea Party types, in spirit if not in actual fact. They give their kids a pocket Constitution for their birthday. They have Yellow Ribbon bumper stickers, and fly the POW/MIA flag under the front-porch Stars and Stripes, and curl their lip at people who talk during the National Anthem at ballgames. They’re the people who believed their institutions when they were told Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. To them, the intel community using fake evidence (including falsified documents) to spy on a presidential campaign is a big deal.

It may surprise many liberals, but most conservative normies actually know the Russia collusion case front and back. A whole ecosystem sprouted up to pore over every new development, and conservatives followed the details as avidly as any follower of liberal conspiracy theorists Seth Abramson or Marcy Wheeler. When the world learned of the infamous meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, it seemed like a problem and many Trump supporters took it seriously. Deep down, even those who rejected the possibility of open collusion worried that one of Trump’s inexperienced family members, or else a sketchy operative glomming onto the campaign, might have done something that, whatever its real gravity, could be successfully framed in a manner to sway a dozen of John McCain’s friends in the Senate. 

Then, Trump supporters learned that Veselnitskaya was working with Fusion GPS, the political research and PR firm used by the Clinton campaign to formulate and spread the collusion accusations. They learned that the anti-Clinton information that was supposed to be the subject of the notorious meeting was provided by the same firm. They learned that she’d had dinner with Glenn Simpson, the owner of Fusion GPS, both the day before, and the day after the meeting. Needless to say, Trump supporters were skeptical of Simpson’s claim that Veselnitskaya’s meeting with Trump campaign officials never came up during either of their dinner dates, given that the content of the meeting was alleged to be the very treasonous, impeachable crime his firm was being paid to investigate and publicize.

There’s no need to relive all the details of the Russia collusion scam. The point is that conservatives were following it all very closely, in real time, and they noticed when things didn’t add up. After James Comey told Fox News’ Bret Baier that, even at the time of their interview in April 2018, he didn’t know who had funded the Steele dossier, conservatives noticed when the December 2019 DOJ Inspector General’s report showed that he had been informed of the dossier’s provenance in October 2016. And they asked themselves: Why would he lie? Lying to investigators about one’s knowledge of or involvement in a potentially criminal act is often taken as consciousness of guilt. 

This was the bone that stuck in conservatives’ craw throughout the two years of hysteria over Russia. Why would Comey lie about knowing where the dossier came from? Why would the people involved claim to have seen evidence that never seemed to materialize? If the point of the Special Counsel is to take the investigation out of the hands of line investigators to avoid the appearance of political influence, why staff the office with known partisans and the same FBI personnel who originated and oversaw the case? Why was the relationship between Russian lawyer Veselnitskaya and Fusion GPS being dismissed as irrelevant? Why were people who must know better continuing to insist that the Steele dossier was originally funded by Republicans long after the claim had been debunked? Why wasn’t the media asking even these most obvious questions? And why were they giving themselves awards for refusing to ask those questions, and viciously attacking journalists who did ask them? These journalists are intelligent people — at least they present that way on television. Is it possible that these questions simply had not occurred to them? It seemed unlikely.

Many Trump supporters reasoned that it was simply not possible to carry on this campaign without some degree of coordination. That coordination perhaps did not take place in smoke-filled rooms (though they weren’t ruling it out), but at least through incentives, pressure, and vague but certain threats all well-understood by people who moved about in the same professional and social class, and who complained that they could “smell the Trump support” when they were unfortunate enough to have to patronize a Wal-Mart.

If there was a time when Trump supporters feared Robert Mueller’s goon squad, that time had passed by the 2018 midterm elections. Conservatives knew by then the whole case was bunk, and they were salivating at the prospect of watching him get chopped up by the likes of Jim Jordan and Devin Nunes. And he did.

The collusion case wasn’t only used to damage Trump in the polls or distract from his political agenda. It was used as an open threat to keep people from working in the administration. Taking a job in the Trump administration meant having one’s entire life investigated for anything that could fill CNN’s anti-Trump content requirement for another few days, whether or not it held up to scrutiny. Many administration employees quit because they were being bankrupted by legal fees due to an investigation that was known by its progenitors to be a political operation. The Department of Justice, press, and government used falsehoods to destroy lives and actively subvert an elected administration almost from the start. Perhaps worst of all, some portion of the American population was driven to the edge of madness by two years of being told that American politics had become a real-life version of The Manchurian Candidate. And not by Alex Jones, but by intelligence chiefs and politicians, amplified by media organizations which threw every ounce of their accumulated credibility behind the insanity.

President Trump Gives A Shoutout To @martyrmade‘s Viral Thread That @TuckerCarlson Read On His Show This Week. #CPACTexasImage

For two years, Trump supporters had been called traitors and Russian bots for casting ballots for “Vladimir Putin’s c*ck holster.” They’d been subjected to a two-year gaslighting campaign by politicians, government agencies, and elite media. It took real fortitude to stand up to the unanimous mockery and scorn of these powerful institutions. But those institutions had gambled their power and credibility, and they’d lost, and now Trump supporters expected a reckoning. When no reckoning was forthcoming – when the Greenwalds, and Taibbis, and Matés of the world were not handed the New York Times’ revoked Pulitzers for correctly and courageously standing against the tsunami on the biggest political story in years – these people shed many illusions about how power really operates in their country.

Trump supporters know – I think everyone knows – that Donald Trump would have been impeached and probably indicted if Robert Mueller had proven that he’d paid a foreign spy to gather damaging information on Hillary Clinton from sources connected to Russian intelligence and  disseminate that information in the press. Many of Trump’s own supporters wouldn’t have objected to his removal if that had happened. Of course that is exactly what the Clinton campaign actually did, yet there were no consequences for it. Indeed, there has been almost no criticism of it.

Trump supporters had gone from worrying the collusion might be real, to suspecting it might be fake, to seeing proof that it was all a scam. Then they watched as every institution – government agencies, the press, Congressional committees, academia – blew right past it and gaslit them for another year. To this day, something like half the country still believes that Trump was caught red-handed engaging in treason with Russia, and only escaped a public hanging because of a DOJ technicality regarding the indictment of sitting presidents. Most galling, conservatives suspect that within a few decades liberals will use their command over the culture to ensure that virtually everyone believes it. This is where people whose political identities have for decades been largely defined by a naive belief in what they learned in civics class began to see the outline of a Regime that crossed not only partisan, but all institutional boundaries. They’d been taught that America didn’t have Regimes, but what else was this thing they’d seen step out from the shadows to unite against their interloper president?


THE ESTABLISHMENT UNITES

GOP propaganda still has many conservatives thinking in terms of partisan binaries. Even the dreaded RINO (Republican-In-Name-Only) slur serves the purposes of the party, because it implies that the Democrats represent an irreconcilable opposition. But many Trump supporters see clearly that the Regime is not partisan. They know that the same institutions would have taken opposite sides if it had been a Tulsi Gabbard vs. Jeb Bush election. It’s hard to describe to people on the Left, who are used to thinking of American government as a conspiracy and are weaned on stories about Watergate, COINTELPRO, and Saddam’s WMD, how shocking and disillusioning this was for people who encouraged their sons and daughters to go fight for their country when George W. Bush declared war on Iraq.

They could have managed the shock if it only involved the government. But the behavior of the press is what radicalized them. Trump supporters have more contempt for journalists than they have for any politician or government official, because they feel most betrayed by them. The idea that the corporate press is driven by ratings and sensationalism has become untenable over the last several years. If that were true, there’d be a microphone in the face of every executive branch official demanding to know what the former Secretary of Labor meant when he said that Jeffrey Epstein “belonged to intelligence.” The corporate press is the propaganda arm of the Regime these people are now seeing in outline. Nothing anyone says will ever make them unsee that, period.

This is profoundly disorienting. Again, we’re not talking about pre-2016 Greenwald readers or even Ron Paul libertarians, who swallowed half a bottle of red pills long ago. These are people who attacked Edward Snowden for “betraying his country,” and who only now are beginning to see that they might have been wrong. It’s not because the parties have been reversed, and it’s not because they’re bitter over losing. They just didn’t know. If any country is going to function over the long-term, not everyone can be a revolutionary. Most people have to believe what they’re told and go with the flow most of the time. These were those people. I’m pretty conservative by temperament, but most of my political friends are on the Left. I spend a good deal of our conversations simply trying to convince them that these people are not demons, and that this political moment is pregnant with opportunity. 

Many Trump supporters don’t know for certain whether ballots were faked in November 2020, but they know with apodictic certainty that the press, the FBI, and even the courts would lie to them if they were. They have every reason to believe that, and it’s probably true. They watched the corporate press behave like animals for four years. Tens of millions of people will always see Brett Kavanaugh as a gang rapist, based on an unproven accusation, because of CNN. And CNN seems proud of that. They helped lead a lynch mob against a high school kid. They cheered on the most deadly and destructive riots in decades.

Conservatives have always complained that the media had a liberal bias. Fine, whatever: they still thought the press would admit the truth if they were cornered. They don’t believe that anymore. What they’ve witnessed in recent years has shown them that the corporate press will say anything, do anything, to achieve a political objective, or simply to ruin someone they perceive as an opponent. Since my casual Twitter thread ended up in the mouths of Tucker Carlson and Donald Trump, I’ve received hundreds of messages from people saying that I should prepare to be targeted. Others don’t think that will happen, but even most of them don’t think it’s an irrational concern. We’ve seen an elderly lady receive physical threats after a CNN reporter accosted her at home to accuse her of aiding Kremlin disinformation ops. We’ve seen them threaten to dox someone for making a humorous meme.

Throughout 2020, the corporate press used its platform to excuse and encourage political violence. Time Magazine told us that during the 2020 riots, there were weekly conference calls involving – among others – leaders of the protests, local officials responsible for managing them, and members of the media charged with reporting on the events. They worked together with Silicon Valley to control the messaging about the ongoing crisis for maximum political effect. In case of a Trump victory, the same organization had protesters ready to be activated by text message in 400 cities the day after the election. Every town with a population over 50,000 would have been in for some pre-planned, centrally-controlled mayhem. In other countries we call that a color revolution.

Throughout the summer, establishment governors took advantage of COVID to change voting procedures, often over the protests of the state legislatures. It wasn’t only the mass mailing of live ballots: they also lowered signature matching standards, axed existing voter ID and notarization requirements, and more. Many people reading this might think those were necessary changes, either due to the virus or to prevent potential voter suppression. I won’t argue the point, but the fact is that the US Constitution states plainly that “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections… shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof.” As far as conservatives were concerned, state governors used COVID to unconstitutionally usurp their legislatures’ authority to unilaterally alter voting procedures just months before an election in order to help Biden make up for a massive enthusiasm gap by gaming the mail-in ballot system. Lawyers can argue over the legitimacy of the procedural modifications; the point is that conservatives believe in their bones – and I think they’re probably right – that the cases would have been treated differently, in both the media and in court, if the parties were reversed.

And then came the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Liberals dismiss the incident because, after four years of obsessing over the activities of the Trump children, they insist they’re not interested in the behavior of the candidate’s family members. But this misses the point entirely. Big Tech ran a coordinated censorship campaign against a major American newspaper while the rest of the media spread base propaganda to protect a political candidate. And once again, the campaign crossed institutional boundaries, with dozens of former intelligence officials throwing their weight behind the baseless and now-discredited claim that the laptop was part of a Russian disinformation campaign. That lie was promoted by Big Tech companies, while the true information being reported by The New York Post about the laptop’s contents was suppressed. That is what happened. 

Even the tech companies themselves now admit it was a “mistake” – Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said it was an error and apologized – but the election is over, Joe Biden has appointed Facebook’s government regulations executive as his ethics arbiter, so who cares, right? It hardly needs saying that if The New York Times had Donald Trump Jr.’s laptop, full of pictures of him smoking crack and engaging in group sex, lots of lurid family drama, and emails with pretty direct discussions of political corruption, the Paper of Record would not have had its accounts suspended for reporting on it. Let’s remember that stories of Trump being pissed on by Russian prostitutes and blackmailed by Putin were promoted as fact across the media spectrum and used as the basis for a multi-year criminal investigation, when the only evidence was a document paid for by his opposition and disavowed by its primary source.

The reaction of Trump supporters to all this was not, “no fair!” That was how they felt about Romney’s “binders of women” in 2012 or Harry Reid’s lie that Romney paid no federal taxes. This is different. Now they were beginning to see, accurately, that the institutions of their country — all of them — had been captured by people prepared to use any means to exclude them from the political process. And yet they showed up in record numbers to vote. Trump got 13 million more votes than in 2016 – 10 million more than Hillary Clinton had gotten.

As election day became election night and the tallies rolled in, Trump supporters allowed themselves some hope. But when the four critical swing states (and only those states) went dark around midnight, they knew. 

Over the following weeks, they were shuffled around between honest critics, online grifters, and media scam artists selling them conspiracy theories. They latched onto one then another increasingly outlandish theory as they tried to put a concrete name on something very real, of which election day was only the culmination. Media and Big Tech did all they could to make things worse. Everything about the election was strange, confusing, and unprecedented – the changes to procedure, unprecedented mail-in voting, counting delays, etc – but rather than admit that and bring everything into the open, they banned discussion of it (even in private messages!), and launched an absurd propaganda campaign telling us that it was – I’m not making this up – the most well-run and secure election in American history.

Conservatives know – again, I think probably everyone knows – that just as Don Jr.’s laptop would have been the story of the century, if everything about the election dispute was the same, except the parties were reversed, suspicions about the outcome would have been taken very seriously. See 2016 for proof.

Even the judiciary had forfeited its credibility with these voters because of the opposition’s embrace of political violence. Trump supporters say, with good reason: What judge will stick his neck out for Trump knowing he’ll be destroyed in the media as a violent mob burns down his house? Maybe most judges would do their jobs, but given the events of the last four years it’s not an unreasonable concern, and the concern itself is enough to cast the whole system in doubt. Again, we know, thanks to Time Magazine, that riots were planned in cities across the country if Trump had won. Sure, they were “protests”, but they were planned by the same people as during the summer, and everyone knows what it would have meant. The Chamber of Commerce took the threat of a second round of destruction of its members’ property seriously enough to offer its assistance to the “well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information” – Time’s words, not mine.

Trump voters were adamant that the governors’ changes to election procedures were unconstitutional. Everything in law is open to interpretation, but it doesn’t require a Harvard Law degree to read Article 1, Section 4 (quoted above) and come to that conclusion. But they also knew the cases wouldn’t see a courtroom until after the election, and what judge was going to make a ruling that would be framed as a judicial coup d’etat just because some governors didn’t go through the proper channels? Even a judge willing to accept the personal risk would have also to be willing to inflict the chaos that would follow on the country. Even a well-intentioned judge could convince himself that, whatever happened or didn’t happen, as a public servant he had no right to impose an opinion guaranteed to lead to mass violence – because the threat was not implied, it was direct. Some Trump supporters, unfortunately, thought the license for political violence applied to everyone; the hundreds of them now sitting in federal jails learned the hard way that it wasn’t true.

From the perspective of Trump’s supporters, the entrenched bureaucracy and security state subverted their populist president from day one. The natural guardrails of the Fourth Estate were removed because the press was part of the operation. Election rules were changed in an unconstitutional manner that could only be challenged after the deed was done, when judges and officials would be playing chicken with a direct threat of burning cities. Political violence was legitimized and encouraged. Major newspapers and sitting presidents were banned from social media, while the opposition enjoyed free rein to promote stories that were discredited once it was too late to matter. Conservatives put these things together and concluded that, whatever happened on November 3, 2020, it was not a free and fair democratic election in any sense that would have had meaning before Donald J. Trump was a candidate.

Trump supporters were led down some rabbit holes. But they are absolutely right that the institutions and power centers of this country have been monopolized by a Regime that believes they are beneath representation, and will observe no limits to prevent them getting it. I encourage people on the Left to recognize the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in front of them. You’re not going to agree with the conservatives on everything. But if in 2004 I had told you that the majority of the GOP voter base would soon be seeing the folly of the Iraq War, becoming skeptical of state surveillance, and beginning to see the need for action to help the poor and working classes, you’d have told me such a thing would transform the country. Take the opportunity. These people are not demons, and they are ready to listen in a way they haven’t in a long, long time.

U.S. Democracy Could Be in Peril By Pelosi’s HR1

The House has just passed a bill that would compel states to accept mailed-in votes for 15 days prior to and 10 days after Election Day; set up automatic and online voter registration; prohibit review of the eligibility of voters; compel acceptance of ballots cast in the wrong precincts; bar the removal of the ineligible voters from the rolls; permit ballot harvesting; ban any voter identification laws; consign to unelected officials the redrawing of congressional districts; infringe upon free speech by the imposition of “onerous legal and administrative burdens on candidates, civic groups, unions, and non-profit organizations”; and establish a disturbingly named “Commission to Protect Democratic Institutions” in order to end-run the courts.

The potential for gross abuse with these changes if they are enacted is too obvious to require elaboration. Any opposition to it is labeled “voter suppression.” If this bill is enacted, especially with the provision for a bare majority vote on any issue in the Senate, and the addition of two or four sure Democratic senators from Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia admitted as new states, the question of whether and to what extent the United States remains a government of laws and a genuine democracy will not be possible to answer affirmatively with any confidence.

Trump’s Victory is just a Formality

I’ve been pretty scarce in terms of commenting on the state of the election right now. Yes, the election of 2020 is still going on. Really weird, huh.

I’m not sure where the rest of you are at, but I’m still on board with 100% confidence that Trump has won and will be sitting in the White House come January 20, 2021. What gives me such confidence? Well, several things, and these are just my assessment and belief. Your mileage may vary. Sorry this may be a bit long for you, but I think it’ll help reassure many of you doubting Trump’s win. 🙂

First, President Trump has tweeted about election fraud all the way back in 2012 when he wasn’t even a politician. To me, that indicates he’s fully aware of how tainted our election process is.

Secondly, you have to read between the lines to have a guess at what Trump is doing. And even if you do that right, you may still be in the dark. That is by design. For example, how many of us expected peace to break out in the Middle East between Israel a a host of Arab nations? I’d say almost none. And it came out of the blue. Which means Trump’s pretty good at keeping things on the down low. If he can do that, I think I trust him enough to time the exposure of the election fraud till the right moment. Another clue related to this: when have we ever had a president tell his supporters to come to DC in January, when he’s supposedly lost the election? Yeah, exactly. To reinforce this point, I’ll just remind you that Trump is a student of Sun Tzu, and he’s mastered his war strategies over a lifetime in the dirty world of construction.

Thirdly, if you’ve followed Trump for the last four years, you know that he’s not the typical politician. He’s abrasive, he’s obnoxious, he doesn’t do things career politicians do. And that’s a good thing. I’ll reference Executive Order 13848 signed back in September 2018 for this point. Why would he sign such an EO that really puts the focus on the election? And why did he classify our elections as a matter of national security? That classification puts the entire election process in a whole different realm, where I believe that there can be drastic steps taken to root out the attacks on our election integrity. I’ll come back to this later.

Fourthly, when I look at Trump, I get it that he’s a bigger than life personality. Some call him a egotistical narcissist who’s only out for his own family’s financial gain. I can see how he can have a strong ego and a degree of narcissism–all leaders at a certain level have that. You think pastors of megachurches are all meek humble shepherds? Pfft. But, to the degree that he’s helped the average working American–the people he was elected to lead and protect–despite these so called ego flaws, I think he’s done a great job. And this is just my opinion: when you look at his upbringing and background and how he’s raised his children, you can see the working man’s attitude in him. I believe that what he projects to the public, especially his opponents is all a persona that he wears like an armor. He uses it as a weapon against his political enemies.

Fifthly, Trump has done a masterful job at exposing things and building up emotional and psychological momentum in people. I’m disregarding the “normies,” who continue to be easily led by the propaganda cocooned in nice sounding words like unity, for the children, diversity, antiracism, equality. I can’t explain in full now, but the bottom line is this: they don’t see the subtle and continual chipping away of their freedoms. They just don’t–maybe it’s their nature combined with their pride in their intelligence and trust in their leaders. Anyways, apart from these people, Trump has done a brilliant job waking people up to their role in determining the direction of their government. I mean, have we ever seen so many rallies and marches and phone calls to politicians like we’ve seen this year in protest of the anti-American actions of almost ALL our political class? No, and I attribute this almost all to Trump and how he’s moved and shaped our attitudes these last four years.

Sixth, if you’ve kept up, you’ll notice that Trump’s been making administrative staffing decisions and actions as if he’s planning for the next four years. Who removed people from the Pentagon’s board in the last weeks of a presidency? Or issues EO’s that may be overturned by the next president? That’s a big clue.

Lastly, here’s where I think we are right now in terms of actual outcomes. We have election fraud evidence coming out in dribs and drabs, and are still waiting for our day at SCOTUS. This is what has to happen legally, what can you do. But, it has raised the level of awareness among non-political folks that something wasn’t kosher about this election.

I think that Trump will use the EO 13848 report at some point between now and January 6th to lay out the entire detail of election fraud. Because that’s essentially what the EO asked for. He may do it in a presidential address, which news outlets are required to broadcast. If he does this, then the mindset of the entire country will shift literally in an instant. Once the average American sees the overwhelming evidence of domestic and foreign interference and attempt to steal an election, the game is over.

At this point, there will be huge outcry and anger so that Pence will choose to disqualify all electors from states with tainted elections with no objections. Whether that means the candidate with most electoral votes wins short of 270, or it goes to the contingent election route of each state getting one vote is irrelevant. Why? Because there will be overwhelming consensus that Trump has legitimately won, and Biden cheated.

BUT, and here’s a big but. But if Pence still moves forward with accepting electors from the states with proven election fraud, then the consequences of EO 13848 kick in. Which will result in mass arrests and removal of all people involved in proven election tampering. And once the EO’s actions are over, there really won’t be a Democrat standing that will oppose Trump, let alone Biden. If this sounds incredible, I suggest you go read EO 13848. It’s pretty far reaching in terms of its impact.

And in my opinion, this win-win scenario makes sense. Trump doesn’t leave things to chance, especially if he’s been able to plan for this election for four plus years. If you think he’s going to trust ANYONE in the political class, who’ve all shown themselves to be bought off or not working for the American people, then you haven’t figured him out. This is what I believe will roll out in the upcoming days and weeks, but I could be wrong. And this is why I believe that the January 6th vote counting will not be divisive, and the rally in DC will be more of a celebration than protest.

So, we’ll see how things shake out, but all that I’ve written here is confirmation to me at a personal, political, and legal level that Trump will win.

This is Different…

If you’d told me a month ago right after the elections, that we’d be here today with 22 states joining the Texas lawsuit against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin to challenge the unconstitutionality of executive and judicial changes to election laws, I wouldn’t have believed you.

But as we can all see, that is exactly what we have today. The question you have to ask yourself is: how did we get to this point, and have we ever been in such a crisis before to this degree?

The Media are Traitors

First, take a look at the democrat/left and the never Trumpers:

These people have all CONVENIENTLY SKIPPED over the part where the election is currently CONTESTED due to the mounting evidence of FRAUD, and jumped right to President Biden. So in their minds, all the action right now contesting the election is seditious. Huh. I guess they’ve really bought their own BS of #notmypresident, but sadly Trump is still president (and will be come January 20, 2021!). As I’ve said before on Facebook, if you cannot ground yourself in reality and accept that there is fraud, then you are 1) too Trump deranged or 2) you really don’t care that cheating happened as long as your side wins. The above illustrates both 1 and 2. I wonder how much media has blocked news that lets these people think this way? Hmm…

Trump, and the various states, have been using all available means legally to challenge the election. If the left are so confident that Biden really won, and we’re being sore losers, then why don’t they just step back and let the legal process work itself out? Why won’t they just let us prove that we conservatives and Republicans made fools of out of ourselves wasting money chasing after a lost election? I wonder why the media has been censoring all conservative election claims as “disputed?” Hmm…

Well, they’ll probably say we’d find a way to cheat and steal the election! Yeah, according to the left, we’ve seen suit after suit thrown out of court. Doesn’t sound like winning now, does it? If that were the case, and they were so confident we have no evidence, then they should just merrily let us go all the way to the Supreme Court to be completely humiliated in front of the biggest court in the land. Wouldn’t that be a hoot? If they were so confident, they’d let all the states sue and lose in court again! Yeah! Stick it to those seditious conservatives!!

But, no. They’re tweeting and writing articles, and censoring everyone and their mother because they know the truth isn’t on their side. The honest ones on the left/Dem side are quiet right now. They can’t say anything because to say a word now means they are actively supporting cheating to win. But, the reality is, by remaining silent and NOT coming out against the overwhelming fraud and violation of constitutional due process, they’re also complicit in wanting to win by cheating. The ONLY ones that are innocent are the ones that actively speak out against the theft of this election, or at the very least announce/write/text/blog/tweet/vlog that they see problems with this election. And no, the ones that innocently claim, “I think Biden legitimately won” don’t count. They can claim ignorance, but that doesn’t absolve them of their guilt in supporting a stolen election by not questioning the evidence that’s coming out. I wonder if they’re remaining quiet because they believe the media will continue to cover for them? Hmm…

So, what we have here are two sides that are dug in, and both believe their side is right. The biggest problem I see in the current situation is the deceitfulness of the media. I believe that if they had just reported the news objectively instead of wholly landing on one side, there would be a consensus on what happened in this election. But because there isn’t an honest media, we have warring sides, each with its own version of truth. In fact, this time it’s different from the last few elections… but, it’s not all that different from all the way back to… 1864, when Lincoln was president. Read the EO he signed ordering the imprisonment of journalists.

Do I think we are to the degree where the media are complicit in tilting the election in one direction for Biden? Is the sky blue? Yes, ever since election night when they called Arizona right out of the gate, the media has been rigging the optics and the perception that Biden was winning. And they’ve been doing this for all four years of Trump’s presidency. Why do I bring up the media? Because, they have been shaping perception and people’s beliefs for so long, they can no longer be considered unbiased reporters but rather political PR hacks for the leftist Democratic machine. And if they can be shown to have reported and censored news in such a way that overturns elections by cheating and obfuscation and censoring, would that be seditious actions worthy of criminal charges? Yes, I believe so. And I believe Trump and the law could make a good case for it.

The Deep State Rot is Irredeemable

And second, as we can see in the news this week about Swalwell, about Hunter Biden, about Joe Biden’s brother, and about all the embedded Chinese supporters in our government, this election is way more than just choosing a president. This election is choosing to live in two completely different worldviews. And I, for one, would rather fight now and fight hard, to preserve the American way of life, than to let the Chinese communist puppets take over control of our country. Because if that happens, then all is lost. We are doomed as a nation, and as freedom lovers all over the world.

And if you need anymore clue right now that we are engaged in a very real war with China, watch this video. You can skip to around minute 9:30, and you can infer the tentacles the CCP have gone into the highest echelons of power in America. This corruption of politicians goes on at state levels, too. Just look at Governor Kemp and Ducey, let alone all the ballot stuffing in Georgia and Pennsylvania, on top of the algorithmic manipulation of Dominion Voting software.

But, it goes beyond just China and the CCP. There is a movement globally that you can sense has a “unity” theme, but my gut sense and spirit tells me it’s a darker force that’s working to “bring us together.” There is so much more evidence and signs of a global NEW ORDER all around us disguised as a Global Reset. Or Build Back Better as they’ve been marketing it (see the image below). They’re literally shoving it in our face. Like this video by the World Economic Forum basically saying we’ll own nothing and be happy. Or the Council for Inclusive Capitalism, which sounds like corporatist socialism masquerading as free market values. I won’t go on more about this, as this is a separate issue from how this time our election is different. But it gives you perspective as to how our election impacts not just the US, but the world. And by bringing the freedom loving side down, it’ll be easier to corral and move the US into the global stable of nations.

Bottom Line: Trump Will Bring the Storm

So, the media collusion to sway people’s perception, along with the leftist Democrat machine stealing the election, combined with the global movement towards a more “inclusive” and “egalitarian” world under some “peaceful” global elite is upon us now. Do I think that Trump will be the one to solve all these challenges? I don’t know. I know that he’ll definitely be cleaning house here in the States, and with all the evidence collected, I think we’ll be surprised to see how many people will be brought down in disgrace once this whole thing blows over. Yes, even in the media. As for the world, we’ll see. There may be a worldwide reckoning if foreign powers are implicated, but I can’t say how that looks like right just yet.

Keep your focus on the big picture, and understand the strategic moves that are hidden amongst all the activity we see going on right now. And pray for God to bring his mercy and justice. I think if there ever was a time like in the days of Noah, I think our current postmodern post-truth world is it.

Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence.  God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.

Trump is Almost Ready to Go

In the coming days, I believe there will be legal moves, media moves, and possibly even military/security moves and activity. Do not worry. As you have seen, contrary to what lies the left have been spewing, Trump and the conservatives have been using all available LEGAL LAWS set in our Constitution to pursue redress in terms of what he (and we) sees as a fraudulent election.

Understand this: the president has a lot of constitutional powers given to him to protect and secure the safety and integrity of this country. Even militarily if warranted. But, he’s being very patient in following the proper process because he wants to maintain the unity of the country. As we are seeing now, China has been a nefarious and evil enemy waging war against us financially, industrially via intellectual property theft and outright purchase, and politically by spying, extortion, bribes, and payoffs. Trump knows we are at war with China; an information war with the disadvantage of enemies within that are blinded to the harsh reality of the world as it is.

Until the left understands that they are standing against the will of the people and against the constitution, and I think they’re slowly coming to that realization, Trump will keep working the mechanisms at his disposal until they force him to move more forcefully. And I, along with many others, will stand in support of his actions.

I am not a Trump cultist nor a Christian nationalist, which the left uses to insult people they don’t agree with. I simply believe that I am blessed to live in a country where we have the freedom to worship and live how we want. Plus we have (up till now) a system of government that lets us participate in deciding how we want to live with each other. And because of this, I truly believe that Trump is the man for this hour—not a Democrat or Republican—but an American like us, who will help restore our country back to its founding values. The Rubicon has been crossed, so there’s no turning back. Are you all in? I am, 100%. God bless you and God bless America and all the people around the world yearning to live in freedom.

The Kraken will Live on in 2021

A thought came to me after I thought through the Texas suit at SCOTUS.

I think we were all in a rush to see the evidence Powell and Trump’s legal team had be presented to the court, and then have the decision be made in favor of Trump that there was fraud. However, back in November Trump mentioned that there was a lawsuit that could just cover everything that was beautiful, but he didn’t have standing. Now we know that this Texas suit was what he meant at that time.

I think this suit will end the election fraud issue quickly if they rule per the law. If not, then we’ll see what DNI Ratcliffe presents in his report as required by the 2018 EO 13848. Either way, Trump still has at least two paths to victory, both very strong.

But back to Powell. I think the civil and then eventual criminal cases that will reveal itself will expand to all the states that Dominion was involved with. This will then involve the DOJ, and will be a continuous onslaught of exposure of the corruption in all our political leaders at all levels of government. We saw just a taste of that these last two days with Swalwell and his Chinese spy, as well as that university dean boasting about deep connections at the highest level of our government.

Trump is dragging the net far and wide and for as long as possible to let all these traitors and enemies out themselves. Democrats and I hope leftists are already done for; it’s just a matter of how much destruction they’ll suffer.
