Election Aftermath: Either Or

The country continues to balance on a knife’s edge as we await the outcome of the presidential election (and a few down-ballot races, too). What the Democrat-media complex would have us believe is that the absentee candidate Joe Biden received more votes for president than anyone in American history, including millions more than either Hussein Obama (twice) and Hillary Clinton. And Biden supposedly also turned American political history on its head by defeating an incumbent president while his Democrat Party lost seats in the US House of Representatives (not to mention other down-ballot disasters for Democrats in state and local elections).

The current Democrat-media narrative avoids any discussion of those anomalies, as well as that of “The Great Pause” for 3-4 hours on Election Day night when Biden supposedly made up deficits of hundreds of thousands votes in key swing states while most Americans went to bed believing that President Trump had been easily reelected. Their narrative is that “the election is over, Biden has been ‘declared’ the winner, and President Trump must concede and initiate an orderly transition to the inevitable Biden-Harris regime.”

Or, the alternate view is that the Democrats stole the election through massive and blatant voter fraud using every trick in the book: ballot harvesting, fraudulent/machine-printed and stamped mail-in ballots, tossing ballots marked for President Trump, automated vote-switching by Democrat-controlled ballot marking devices in wide use in swing states, etc. That view has been fortified by hundreds of personal affidavits detailing observed instances of voter fraud, statistical data analysis of “The Great Pause” that exposed the virtual impossibility of Biden’s late-night vote gains (for example, in Pennsylvania as reported here), much reporting about potential fraud through use of Dominion Voting systems in key states, and even complete denials of voter fraud by the Democrat-media complex despite significant circumstantial evidence that continues to be made public (possibly the most brazen and absurd claim they have made to date). And thus, the President’s team is contesting through targeted lawsuits the certification of votes in several states, and President Trump himself has flat-out refused to concede. Furthermore, he is for all practical purposes ignoring the legacy media and focusing on his presidential duties while the lawsuits work their way through the legal system.

Thus, it is down to an “either or” situation: either President Trump prevails in his lawsuits and multiple constitutional paths to reelection, or Joe Biden and the Democrats succeed in stealing the election. It is just that simple. But there are a lot of other “either or” issues that hang in the balance, too. Let’s look at some of them, which transcend the 2020 election results and will determine the future of our constitutional Republic.

Election integrity or rigged elections. To continue with the election theme, the phrase “73 million Trump voters” has been bandied about by conservative commentators simply because that is the number of “official votes” tabulated for the President. However, that number – just as the vote total in 2016 – does not account for Trump-marked ballots that were tossed by Democrat operatives in local precincts or votes automatically switched by programmed “glitches” in ballot-marking devices (estimated at millions). The real number of Trump votes is closer to 80 million, and those 80 million voters KNOW that this was an election rigged for Biden. If Biden succeeds in stealing this election, the blueprint will have been cemented for massive Democrat voter fraud in all subsequent elections, including congressional races in 2022. And an Iron Curtain of cynicism will descend on the American electorate in future elections, who will understand that the US has become the equivalent of Venezuela insofar as the integrity of elections is concerned.

The rule of law or the rule of men. Democrats have used lawfare for decades to achieve their political ends. In this election, Democrat-appointed judges and secretaries of state created state election law by allowing vote-counting after Election Day in key states. However, the US Constitution grants sole responsibility for state election laws to state legislatures. If Biden steals the election, the courts will be packed with Democrat political operatives, and any constitutional challenges similar to what the Trump team is doing now will be overridden in circuit courts and at the Democrat-packed US Supreme Court. And Democrat lawfare will continue on every other issue of great importance, too. Are you perhaps thinking about some constitutional challenges to virus lockdowns in several states? Fuhgeddaboudit if Biden/Harris is president!

Freedom or tyranny. Big Tech has already censored political speech of conservatives during the campaign. Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists – the Brown Shirts of the Democrat Party – regularly censor conservative speech on campus, as well as dox and intimidate known conservatives whenever it suits them. And the censorship by Democrats and other leftists has accelerated since Election Day. Twitter has taken to censoring President Trump’s tweets on the election by adding notations such as “this claim about election fraud is disputed” and “multiple sources called this election differently”. Meanwhile, Democrats like Hussein Obama and Hillary are free to comment as they wish despite the fact that THEIR claims about election fraud – i.e., that there was none – are disputed and demonstrably false! With the appointment of radical leftists throughout the Biden-Harris regime, the tyranny will increase, as leftists are already making public statements about “building lists” and attacking President Trump’s supporters in the coming months. Federal agencies will be weaponized against conservatives and other political enemies of Democrats just like they were during the Hussein Obama years. Precisely the kind of tyrannical government about which the Founders warned when they set up the checks and balances in the Constitution. Will the continued limited government of a Trump presidency continue, or will a Biden-Harris regime unleash an administrative state on steroids that will become the bane of all Americans?

Constitutional republic or oligarchy. Speaking of the Constitution, the Democrats have been undermining it for years through the use of leftwing judges to create rights not in the Constitution and also the use of the administrative Deep State to abrogate the responsibility of Congress for writing laws affecting all Americans. Now, they want to get rid of the Electoral College and create two new states (District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) that will add four Democrat senate seats and ensure Democrat control of the US Senate in perpetuity. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the underwriters and supporters of the Democrat Party – especially Big Tech, Wall Street, Hollywood, Academia, the corporate media, and Communist China – will morph from a ruling class to a new oligarchy from which America will never recover, as described here by Angelo Codevilla. Do you prefer our protected liberties under the US Constitution, or – as but one example – the ChiComs’ proposed global QR code system for “travel permissions” for international travel based on “health status,” as reported here, which would be enabled by Big Tech?

Nationalism or globalism. The Trump era was all about a restoration of American nationalism after decades of ceding American political and economic power to our enemies, particularly Communist China. That is the essence of President Trump’s “America First” policies, which have been bitterly fought by globalists in the US and abroad for the past four years. American globalists, including in Corporate America, Corporate Media, the State Dept, and leftwing nonprofit organizations, pushed globalist policies incessantly over several decades: “free trade,” multilateralism, open borders, unlimited H-1B visas at the expense of American workers, disarmament of the US military, ChiCom penetration of American cultural institutions, etc. So-called “China hands” – Henry Kissinger and his political descendants – have been salivating about “resetting” President Trump’s get-tough China policies. They have been auditioning for roles in the Biden-Harris regime in various op-eds in the Washington Post, The Atlantic, and the New York Times for months. The China hands are entirely comfortable with selling out America to the ChiComs in return for thirty pieces of silver. The ChiComs are already test-driving their new “national security law” on Hong Kong, which they would like to extend as the model for authoritarian control as they pursue world hegemony. Oh, by the way, the ChiComs don’t believe in the concept of “separation of powers,” which is a key tenet underlying the US Constitution; they believe that all political power flows from the executive – in ChiCom vernacular, that would be the Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party. China is in the process of creating a nightmare for world governance through the UN and overseas application of their national security law. Beijing aims to ride roughshod over all laws, rules, regulations, and norms. This is exactly what the thoroughly corrupt Biden-Harris (both bought and paid for by the ChiComs) will facilitate if they succeed in stealing the election. Either Western-style democracy will continue in President Trump’s second term, or Biden-Harris will usher in ChiCom-style authoritarianism.

Free markets or socialism. This “either or” is closely related with the previous paragraph. Free markets and free enterprise have resulted in the “American miracle” since the country’s founding 244 years ago – the greatest amount of individual and economic freedom and prosperity for the most people possible in the world’s number one economy. This economic philosophy involves the least amount of government regulation in commerce among American citizens and across state lines, including low levels of taxation. The people decide with whom they wish to trade, buy, and sell with minimal government intervention. The Biden-Harris plan, as clearly stated in the Democrat Party platform, is to impose socialism on the American economy through heavy taxation and regulation and a complete disruption of the energy-producing sector (variations on the “Green New Deal” of Bernie Sanders and The Squad) – the lifeblood of all industry and commerce in America. President Trump’s unshackling of the market from the Hussein Obama years created unprecedented wealth and jobs across all American demographic groups, including minorities and women. Biden-Harris socialism will destroy the American economy, which is a truly horrible “either or” to contemplate.

Accountability or corruption. President Trump has made “drain the swamp” a mantra over the past four years. Most Americans were unaware of the depths of corruption throughout the political class and in federal government agencies, but especially in the Democrat Party. Joe Biden in particular has become the poster child for corruption, grifting, and nepotism, as his performance as Obama’s bag man was previously summarized here. Multiple DoJ investigations have been investigating Democrat and Deep State crimes and corruption, including Spygate, Hunter Biden’s laptop (Ukraine, China, Kazakhstan, etc.), Anthony Weiner’s laptop, Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, the Clinton Foundation, etc. Either those investigations will report out with dozens of indictments during President Trump’s second term, or they will be buried by a thoroughly corrupt and compromised Biden-Harris Justice Department. Either the crooks will be held accountable, or the crimes will be swept under the rug, and the corruption will be accelerated.

Real federal law enforcement or a Praetorian guard. Directly related to the above is whether federal law enforcement, particularly the FBI and Justice Dept, will be re-purposed and re-focused on enforcement of existing laws – as has been happening albeit slowly these last four Trumpian years – or whether a Biden-Harris regime will return the FBI to being a shield for the political class as they became during the Hussein Obama years. Comey, McCabe, and the others on the 7th Floor of FBI headquarters deflected and corrupted any and all “investigations” into criminal actions of the political class, e.g., Hillary’s illegal unclassified server and Obama’s illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign and administration. Either there will be a continuation of swamp-draining (likely accelerated) during President Trump’s second term, or there will be a return of the FBI-DoJ Praetorian guard of the Hussein Obama years.

Free press or corporate media. Yet another topic for which to thank President Trump has been the exposure of the corporate media as being the completely feckless liars and prevaricators that we have observed over the past four years. The agit-prop corporate media have propagated known lies and conspiracy theories, e.g., “Trump-Russia collusion,” Stormy Daniels, and the Ukraine impeachment hoax, etc., expressly in order to “get Trump.” They have been all anti-Trump all the time – or at least about 95% of the time! Even Fox News jumped the shark with the Election Night coverage and subsequent commentary about the inevitability “President-elect Biden.” The US corporate media are the equivalent of Soviet-era and current ChiCom state-run media. In fact, headlines and commentary in ChiCom-controlled outlets like China Daily and People’s Daily are indistinguishable from the claptrap that appears daily in the Washington Post, New York Times, Boston Globe, and other US corporate media. A second Trump term will continue to fuel the rise of independent media and return to a “free press” as the Founders envisioned while the corporate media will continue as handmaidens for the Democrat Party in a Biden-Harris regime.

Law and order or unchecked violence in the streets. Americans concerned about the erosion of law and order in Democrat-run cities and states voted for President Trump in overwhelming numbers. Law and order deliver safety and security to citizens, and even Democrat voters understand that concept! That is why upwards of 30 percent of the attendees at Trump rallies during the campaign were registered Democrats, which had to shock the DNC and Biden campaign. Since no Democrats have condemned the street violence perpetrated by Antifa and Black Lives Matter – but have tried to blame everything on “white supremacists and white nationalists” – what are the chances that a Biden-Harris regime will do an about-face and restore law and order across the land? Antifa and BLM aren’t going away any time soon, as their ultimate goal is destruction of our constitutional republic.

Restoration of traditional American values or cultural Marxism. Speaking of destruction, the American Left have been undermining America’s cultural institutions for over 100 years. Academia has been almost totally taken over by Marxists beginning in the 1960s, and virtually all of the crackpot cultural Marxist theories plaguing the country have emanated for Academia for over 50 years: post-modernism, intersectionalism, political correctness, race theory, social justice, environmental justice, identity politics, diversity, black lives matter, etc., etc. We are seeing the fruits of the Left’s corruption of the public education system in the chaotic street riots by young Americans (generally Millennials and Gen X/Y) who are steeped in the Marxist principles drummed into them by the public education system and Marxist professors in US colleges and universities. All “diversity” and BLM’s identity politics do – by the design of the Left! – is exacerbate divisiveness among Americans while undermining assimilation, which is the key concept that has made Americans of people of every race, color, country, and creed through shared experiences since the US was founded! Thanks to President Trump, Americans are more aware of the cultural Marxism problem than ever before, but a Biden-Harris regime will accelerate cultural Marxism to the maximum. Another horrible “either or” to contemplate!

Summary. The aforementioned are just some of the “either or” topics that hang in the balance in America, pending the outcome of the 2020 election. President Trump understands these issues perhaps better than most Americans; his entire agenda has been beneficial to ALL Americans just as he intended it to be from the very beginning. He knows that the Democrats have tried to steal the election in order to hide the crimes committed by Democrats and other members of the political class and Deep State in prior years. He predicted the massive voter fraud in a 22 June Twitter tweet and mentioned it over and over during his campaign rallies. It would be highly unlike the President to have not taken appropriate precautions with that knowledge in hand. Either he and his team will succeed in exposing it all – and subsequently shocking the world – or the political class will succeed in thwarting his legal challenges through the courts (probably through intimidation and extortion). Of all the “either or” issues, this last one is the most important of all! The fate of our constitutional republic hangs in the balance.

The end.
