Tucker takes on how the election was really stolen

By Andrea Widburg at American Thinker:

When Tucker Carlson attacked Sidney Powell, I was unhappy with him.  However, I said I would still watch Tucker because he’s mostly smart, brave, and funny, qualities I like.  Some people (politely) disagreed with me.  Having seen Tucker’s Monday monologue, though, I am glad that I stuck to my guns by sticking to Tucker.  Tucker excoriates the real fraud in the 2020 election, which is the way the media and Big Tech manipulated the system to destroy Trump.

It’s hard to explain to people who came of age during the Trump era how differently the establishment treated his presidency.  Even when the media loathed presidents — as they did with Nixon and Reagan — they at least went through the motions of showing respect.

With Trump, the media’s hate-fest is unbounded.  They ignored the usual 100-day honeymoon.  Instead, from the moment Trump was elected, media hacks began to exhaust their limited vocabulary of insults: Trump is Hitler.  Trump is worse than Hitler.  Trump is a Hitlerly copy of something worse than Hitler.

If they’re not making Hitler analogies, you have Anderson Cooper calling the president of the United States an “obese turtle on his back flailing in the hot sun.”  Stay classy, Anderson!  Where’s that sophisticated guy who got drunk and talked about his mother’s sex life on air?

At the end of the day, what the media have done for the past four years is inane, shallow, vulgar, and mean-spirited to the point of evil, but the steady drumbeat works.

Although it’s hard to remember, before Trump came along, the media would at least occasionally report rather objectively about actual news, both foreign and domestic.  Nowadays, the news is blatantly slanted in whatever direction benefits Democrats.

Black Lives Matter riots are racial freedom fests while the people who protest being locked in their homes and losing their livelihoods are white nationalist haters.  Nor do the media ever report Trump’s accomplishments.  Instead, taking in the media is liking listening to the two meanest girls in high school gossip about someone they hate.  Again, it’s inane, shallow, vulgar, and mean-spirited, but effective.

Most significantly, it’s impossible to explain the effect of Big Technology to young people who, having been raised within its omnipresent ambit, are as unaware of its power as fish are of the water in which they swim.  When Google hides search results and Twitter and Facebook de-platform people for being “mean,” that’s normal to the young.  To them, that’s the appropriate elevation of “safe” speech — and please, stop nattering about “free” speech, which all these young people know is a secret code for saying “hate speech of the type a Hitlerly Hitler would use.”

Incidentally, it’s also impossible to explain any of pre- and post-internet concepts about journalism and free speech to stalwart leftists.  Because the media and Big Tech align perfectly with what our leftist (AKA Democrat or progressive) friends believe, they too view bias, censorship, and manipulated information as a fish does water: they are normal, and only conspiracy theorists would believe that the water is toxic and deadly.

Enter Tucker Carlson’s Monday-night monologue, with its bracing dose of reality about the way in which the 2020 election was rigged.  We conservatives have every reason to believe in shadow-rigging, in the form of cemetery votes, faked ballots, and election machine manipulation.  All of that, though, requires investigation and a lot of work to establish.

However, Tucker points out that what the media and Big Tech did in the 2020 election is in our faces, it’s devastating, and it’s frightening for the future of a free America.  No wonder Trump pinned Tucker’s monologue to the top of his Twitter page.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1331057517095489539&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.americanthinker.com%2Fblog%2F2020%2F11%2Ftucker_takes_on_how_the_election_was_really_stolen.html&siteScreenName=AmericanThinker&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

(I’m currently trying to point out with some frequency that Twitter never adds to posts from the Biden team any message that “this claim about an election victory is disputed” — although Biden’s claim is quite obviously disputed.)

The leftists are compliant, the politicians are bought and paid for, and we’re all that remains of an America that remembers the First Amendment.  We’d better figure out what to do about this situation before our tech overlords ensure that we have no options left.

Obama’s Hacks Gather Biden

BY JOHN HINDERAKER  at PowerLine:

BIDEN’S FOREIGN POLICY RETREADS

Today Joe Biden announced several key members of his foreign policy team, assuming he takes office in January. His selections are all long-time Democratic Party mediocrities, suggesting that he has learned nothing from President Trump’s foreign policy successes.

In fact, Biden made that clear in today’s announcement:

We have no time to lose when it comes to our national security and foreign policy. I need a team ready on Day One to help me reclaim America’s seat at the head of the table, rally the world to meet the biggest challenges we face, and advance our security, prosperity, and values.

The idea that America’s “seat at the head of the table” has been lost during the last four years is preposterous to anyone who has paid attention, but what Biden means is that he will go back to the pointless yammering at global confabs that characterized the Obama years. Likewise, the last thing Biden intends is for his policies to “advance our security, prosperity, and values.” That would mean putting America First.

So who are Biden’s prospective appointees? Jake Sullivan is slated to be Secretary of State. Sullivan was Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff when she held that office. He later served as Vice-President Joe Biden’s top national security aide, and was said to be “instrumental in shaping the 2015 Iran nuclear deal,” which he still defends against all evidence.

Sullivan has figured in quite a few Power Line posts over the years. He was up to his eyeballs in the Benghazi scandal, as this post reflects:

Following Susan Rice’s infamous talk show appearances in which she claimed that the Benghazi attack was a spontaneous eruption of violence, triggered by an offensive anti-Muslim video, Clinton aide Jake Sullivan told his boss that Rice “ma[d]e clear our view that this started spontaneously then evolved.”

This “view” was Clinton’s story at the time. However, it was inconsistent with the facts as Clinton’s staff knew them to be. Documents obtained by Judicial Watch show that top aides for Clinton, including Sullivan and chief of staff Cheryl Mills, knew from the outset that the Benghazi compound was under attack by armed assailants and that there was good reason to believe the assailants were tied to a terrorist group.

Sullivan likewise figured prominently in Hillary’s off-the-books email scandal. See, e.g.:

[T]he FBI reportedly has been able to develop a list of individuals who will be questioned about their direct handling of the emails in order to get at the issue of how classified information “jumped the gap.”

The list of individuals is said to be relatively small — about a dozen. The pivotal figure is probably Clinton aide Jake Sullivan because he forwarded so many emails containing highly classified information to Clinton, including one that referred to human spying.

It sounds like prospective U.N. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield will fit right in at the U.N., which is about the worst insult one can hurl at someone in the foreign policy establishment. From the Washington Times:

A Joe Biden administration will include Linda Thomas-Greenfield as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, according to various reports.

If true, that means goodbye America First global diplomacy; hello social justice.

It also means a return to Barack Obama days when America was bowing to foreign heads of states, expressing disgust with the concept of American Exceptionalism and practically begging, practically please, please, pretty please begging other nations not to, say, kidnap our sailors and splash their frightened kidnapped faces on billboards for all the haters of America to see.

Is that too harsh? This is what Thomas-Greenfield wrote in Foreign Policy:

The contours of a new agenda for diplomatic reform have to flow from a sensible reinvention of the United States’ role in the world. … U.S. diplomacy has to accept [this] country’s diminished, but still pivotal, role in global affairs. It has to apply greater restraint and discipline; it must develop a greater awareness of the United States’ position and more humility about the wilting power of the American example.

Wilting power? Well, to be fair, it certainly was wilting when Thomas-Greenfield served in the Obama administration, before Trump fired her in 2017. And diminishing America’s role in the world is what Democrats are best at.

Then there is John Kerry, who is in line for a position as “climate czar.” As Steve noted earlier today, “if you want nothing done, John Kerry is just the man for the job.” I will hazard a wild guess that if Kerry serves as climate czar for four years, average global temperatures will be precisely the same at the end of that time as if there were no such position, to as many decimal places as you choose. Kerry, meanwhile, will feed lavishly at the multilateral global warming trough.

What these prospective appointees have in common is that they are retreads. Joe Biden wants to bring us back to the perverse foreign policy era of the Obama administration–perverse because it was anti-American. As many have pointed out, whether you think Obama’s policies were a failure depends on what you think he was trying to achieve.

Did Big Tech Manipulate the Election for Puny Biden?

The New American Revolution of 2020

By Ron Wright at American Thinker:

Many of my friends are distraught and confused about the election.  One wrote saying he had given up hope.  This person is well informed and a former elected official.  Several of my liberal friends are not open to any discussion about vote fraud.  They are blinded by their fervent hated of Trump.  This greatly concerned me, as our media (MSM)’s meme, “there was no election fraud,” is having the intentional effect of wearing people down — nothing to see here; now move along and admit that Biden is the president-elect.

Don’t rely on the recent statement by DHS/CISA — “the November 3rd election was the most secure in American history.”  Ignore reports by the MSM for your own sanity and let the rule of law play out. 

The MSM are in lockstep in reporting disinformation and lies to the people.  Big Tech is openly censoring discussions about this election on its platforms under the guise of disinformation.  It contributed large sums of money to the Biden campaign.  The elitist MSM had the audacity to say it is the arbiter of our presidential election.  Wrong!  Such authority is not given to the MSM in the Constitution, but resides with the people.  This vote is not even certified yet.

The Trump legal team is exercising the constitutional right to question the results of this election on your behalf to ensure that your vote was properly counted whether you are a Democrat or Republican.  Once the legal challenges conclude, which may involve state legislatures and the courts as provided for in the Constitution and by federal law, the certification process will continue.  Then and only then will either President Trump or Biden be the president-elect, and not a minute sooner.

More than 72 million votes were counted for President Trump.  Why did Biden win more votes in this election than did Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama?  There was no Biden campaign.  Biden hung out in his basement for most of the time.  When Biden did emerge and go several miles into Pennsylvania for rallies, no one showed up.  Why did the MSM not press Biden and his son on alleged financial improprieties — e.g., financial dealing with the CCP, Russians, and Ukraine?  Why did so many down ticket races go for Republicans in the US Senate and House and state elections?  Why didn’t this large turnout translate into votes for President Trump?  Common sense dictates that, with the enthusiastic turnouts for Trump rallies, this goes against the grain.  Why did the trend in the key battleground states shift in the middle of the night away from President Trump to Biden?  Why did these vote flips occur simultaneously in key states that shut their counting down for several hours?  Statistically, this can be shown to be impossible.  Why aren’t the MSM digging into these apparent anomalies?

Watch the press conference by the Trump legal team.  The MSM demanded that evidence be shown of vote fraud and afterward reported there was no evidence.  In a general sense, evidence was shown, but the MSM were too blind to see it.  Even Tucker Carlson was asking for some evidence.  Attorney Jenna Ellis schooled the media: this presentation was only the opening statement of their case that will be presented with the evidence and litigated in the courts soon enough.  This is completely understandable, since the team’s clock is ticking down.  This case is massive.  The attorneys must sort through the reams of documents and affidavits with more coming in by the minute to prepare their case.  Where are the DOJ and FBI?

I am a 35-year law enforcement professional with extensive experience in developing, filing, and assisting with the prosecution of complex criminal conspiracy cases.  I have spent my life looking for patterns that are not normal and connecting the dots.  Full disclosure: I’ve worked at one of the AP data collection centers for elections for over ten years.  From my experience, AP data collection centers are impartial and strive for accuracy at all levels.  But in the end, garbage in, garbage out.

At first glance, I knew that the results were highly suspicious when I got up the next morning.  I emailed Andrea Widburg, an editor at the American Thinker.  I said that there was a suspicious pattern in these earlier morning vote flips that a statistical analysis could tease out.  See her previous posts at the American Thinker on the election — for instance, herehere, and here.

In my professional opinion, there was organized systemic vote fraud in key states to shift votes away from President Trump to Biden.  This was done using the Dominion vote system, used in many states.  The Dominion system is corrupt through and through.  Dominion execs failed to show at the last minute at a hearing called last week by the Pennsylvania Legislature.  Dominion has shuttered its offices, including the office it shared with a Soros entity, as told by Sidney Powell and reported by Andrea Widburg.

The Dominion vote-tabulating system should never have been allowed to tabulate votes.  Information about this system’s vulnerability was known for years.  This system can be exploited on many levels from the inside and outside to flip votes at will.  This system does not have the normal cyber-security preventive measures that one would expect of such a critical system — e.g., its machines are not air-walled from the Internet as claimed.

My opinion is based on this analysis by a top-tier cyber-security engineering firm that has top-level security clearances and works with classified governmental programs (I can personally vouch for this firm).  This analysis is corroborated by this Texas security firm done several years ago; this analysis by yet another expert, coupled with this statistical analysis and blog post alleging Antifa connections with a V.P. of Dominion.  See this damning email (as yet unvetted) I received from a high-level governmental source whom I trust implicitly.  Why haven’t the MSM done their own due diligence in investigating the possibility of vote fraud?

There are very serious national security risks posed by Biden and his son’s alleged dealings with China (CCP) and others while this Kabuki theater goes on (e.g., was COVID a bio-weapon the CCP used either intentionally or accidentally to interfere with this election?), could this be followed by a cyber-attack against our infrastructure, or worse, to invade Taiwan?

The people who elected President Trump understood that both sides of the political aisle were self-dealing.  They were lining their own pockets with public funds.  President Trump was no angel, was unpresidential, blunt, and crude.  The people knew what they were getting when they voted for Trump.  Trump was hired to drain the swamp.  Draining the swamp is akin to Jesus overturning the tables of the money changers in the Temple.  This vote fraud is yet another act committed in furtherance of an ongoing conspiracy by a criminal enterprise as defined in RICO.   This criminal enterprise seeks to overturn the rights guaranteed to the people by the Constitution by seditious acts.  This is the reset sought by excited progressives
