Skip to comments.(Vanity) Trump's Miracle,A Modest Proposal on Voter Fraud
Posted on 11/09/2016 10:11:40 PM PST by grey_whiskers
It's in the bag for Trump. Nobody among the intelligent, sophisticated coastal elites thought he would do it. Final reports differ, but when the smoke clears, it looks like Trump will have over 300 electoral votes -- during an election when most people were expecting a Hillary landslide.
It's a stunning rebuke.
How did he do it?
The Deplorables. Trump won over 50% of white women, and won in every age bracket. As an internet commenter observed,
You can only piss on people for so long before they figure out it's not raining.
But here's why Trump's victory was a real miracle, and the reason the elites thought they had the election in the bag. Just as, during the debates, the left had "layers and layers of fact-checkers" (all dedicated to reinforcing the meme that Trump was a wild-eyed, out-of-touch, out-of-control blowhard)... the left had "layers and layers" of defenses against a Trump victory.
Let's look at a few of them. There is no need to dwell on the details at this point.
1) The MSM. Every one is familiar with media bias: but this election took it to "over 9,000." Trump punched through this one beginning with the first debate, when Megyn Kelly (all but drooling in her own lap over her own cleverness) hit Trump with "The Woman Card" and Trump talked over her, casting blame on Rosie O'Donnell, instantly drawing the crowd to his side and deflating the moment.
Paradoxically, this helped set up the second layer.
2) The women's vote; in particular the infamous "Grab them by the..." video with the member of the Bush family. This was supposed to be the coup de grâce.
It likely would have been, too, if it had been trotted out at the last minute as intended. But it got leaked (or released) early to counteract some Wikileaks scandal, and so its effect had time to be diluted.
And *nobody* expected Trump to counterattack within a day by bringing four of the Clinton accusers to the 2nd debate with him.
3) Speaking of debates, the next firewall was the sheer number of GOP contenders against him in the field. Under ordinary conditions, this would have stopped him: there were a number of well-regarded conservative heavyweights, including Sen. Ted Cruz, Gov.Bobby Jindal, Gov.Scott Walker, Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. John Kasich, and Dr. Benjamin Carson. As well as the GOP-e members including Carly Fiorina and Gov. ¿Jeb? Bush. All were asked to sign a statement committing themselves to support the eventual nominee: only Trump was ever held to it.
Trump here used his inside man, Chris Christie, to inform himself of some of the GOP-e's plotting against him, and to execute a beautiful block against Rubio in an early debate.
And Trump himself disposed of ¿Jeb? quite handily, with a single "low energy" quip.
4) But there was more to it than that. Ted Cruz, apparently overcome by his own ego, refused to line up behind Trump even after he himself had been mathematically eliminated, instead eating up time, sewing discord, and acting as a source of controversy which only contributed to the perception of Trump as out of the mainstream and unelectable.
He also contrived to name Carly Fiorina as his running mate, giving a brief glow to the charge that Trump was against women, and taking time and publicity from Trump.
And John Kasich openly worked with Rubio in an attempt to deny Trump the delegate votes from Florida and Ohio; and continued to snipe at Trump even during the general election itself.
5) Helping Cruz in this, was the talk show host Glenn Beck. Remember the "White Horse" prophecy and Glenn Beck praying for Cruz on stage? Not to mention other conservative hosts such as Steve Deace, Mark Levin, and the damn-them-with-faint-praise Rush Limbaugh: much of the conservative press showed they were co-opted. Even the print press turned against him, witness Bill Kristol as well as the National Review infamous "We're Cucks" issue. Only Sean Hannity, it seems, went all-in for Trump.
6) Besides all of this, there were the meetings -- one on an island off the coast of Florida, another in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, discussing how to take out Trump. Surrogate candidate Evan McMullin was put forward, in the hopes of denying Trump the state of Utah, and to throw the election to Hillary, or at least send it to the House of Representatives, where further chicanery could be performed. McMullin actually did provide the margin of loss in Virigina.
7) If this wasn't enough, the GOP-e itself did Trump no favors, and actively conspired to take him out. Even aside from the backstabbing by Rubio, Kasich, Jeb, and the others, even the sitting Speaker Of The House, Paul Ryan, refused to congratulate, openly campaign for, or endorse Trump -- until after Trump won the Presidency.
But it gets worse. Paul Ryan is married to someone whose family has given millions to Dem causes and superPACs. It was also a Ryan staffer (who is married to an NBC reporter, Campbell Brown -- who herself used to "date" a Saudi billionaire), who collaborated with the press and Billy Bush to release the infamous "Grab them by the ..." video. And it was Ryan who immediately called for Trump to drop out; he reportedly held a conference call the next day with a number of influential House members, only to find out that their phones had melted down due to calls from constituents *supporting* Trump.
8) After the nomination, the GOP reportedly gave very little money to Trump for national advertising, even as they demanded fundraising from Trump, until he got fed up and stopped. Trump had to rely on surrogates such as Rudy Guiliani, his own Twitter feed, and flying at a truly mind-bending pace (nine rallies in the final two days, across a number of hotly contested border states). All of these, it seems, were the beginning of the birth pangs.
For now Trump had to contend with the DEMOCRAT firewalls. These were not as detailed or personal, but just as involved.
1) The rigged debates. One moderator, I think it was John Harwood, openly sneered at Trump with a question, "Let's be honest; can't we admit your campaign is a comic book affair" or words to that effect. And yet the press never asked Evan McMullin anything so pointed.
Reportedly, the Fox co-moderators were arguing with each other over which one would be allowed to ask the harshest "gotcha" questions of Donald Trump.
There was the matter of "fact checkers" in the mold of the infamous Candy Crowley, to the point that Hillary Clinton openly answered Trump's statements during her rebuttal with the words, "Fact checker."
Wikileaks revealed that CNN personality and DNC official Donna Brazile had leaked -- verbatim -- several debate questions to the Hillary campaign.
2) The Grope-gate scandal, where within a day or so of the Billy Bush video AND the simultaneous scripted call by GOP politicians for Trump to step aside, a number of women -- five, or eight, or twenty million, at this point, who's counting, accused Trump of sexually interacting with them in language almost identical to one another, and to the words in the video. Anyone else would have folded. But Trump sent a cease-and-desist letter to the New York Times, and his wife, to People Magazine, to force them to retract (those suits are still pending).
And them Trump sought out the Clinton accusers and brought them to the debate, to sit in the audience. There have been a number of good online memes about this.
3) The coverups in Hillary's favor, by the Press, of her apparent seizure on camera, which she recovered from by joking about Chai tea; the infamous freeze-up when the large black -- Secret Service agent, or personal physician -- stood next to her at the podium and said audibly, "We're gonna get through this, keep talking."
Not to mention the 9-11 rally where Hillary was "thrown into the [vehicle] like a slab of beef."
4) The Democrats launched a series of lawsuits designed to allow voter fraud. One in Ohio, which was submitted by a Dem appointed judge, would have prevented ALL lay poll observers, filming in or within 100 feet of a polling place or of anyone standing in line to enter a polling place, asking ANYONE whether they were eligible to vote, or passing out literature or discussing the penalties for voter fraud, on pain of a $1000 bond. The Trump team went to a US Federal Court and got it quashed the next day; there were three other similar lawsuits in other states; for example one which allowed a single person to turn in more than ten ballots at a time "on behalf of others", cough cough...some of whom might even have known about the vote in their name.
5) President Obama openly campaigning on behalf of Hillary, even going so far as to go live on TV and tell illegal aliens not to be afraid to vote.
6) Open reports of voter fraud, documented on film, and suspicious activity including Hillary meeting with Brenda Snipes in the infamous Broward County in Florida before election day -- and the usual court orders for polls to be held open late in Dem strongholds (e.g. in North Carolina).
7) The press making plans to call Florida for Hillary while polls in the panhandle were still open; and refusing to call obvious Trump wins (say, in Georgia) for *hours*.
8) And, most obviously, the voter fraud itself. Obviously, nobody expected that once the election started, Trump would be able to overcome the illegals voting in all states: in particular, Florida; and the voter fraud machines in other states, particularly Pennsylvania. But Trump won with same-day turnout: in Minnesota, for example, Trump's margin overall is around 45,000 votes, even though he won election day voting by 2-1. Yes, in Minnesota.
Trump himself is aware of this: in an earlier interview with Christ Wallace Trump quoted the Pew report :
It's titled "Inaccurate, Costly, and Inefficient: Evidence That Americas Voter Registration System Needs an Upgrade."
Page one of the 12-page report has several bullet points:
Approximately 24 millionone of every eightvoter registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate.
More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters.
Approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.
...and that isn't even counting the illegals.
...or the machines all over the country which visibly changed Trump votes to Hillary votes.
Truly, it is miracle that Trump won. And at that, when everyone expected a Hillary landslide.
A major plank in the Dem take over of the country, has been to corrupt and pollute and defile the voting process itself.
President Trump should do the following.
1) Purge the voter rolls of dead people and duplicates. If anyone complains about this being too hard, tell them they are thinking of the Obamacare website. Ordinary Credit Card companies can identify, track, coordinate, and calculate daily interest charges across billions of charges a day on hundreds of millions of credit cards. For the Presidential Race, it can't be too hard to choose Candidate A or Candidate B and keep track of it.
2) Send the illegal aliens HOME and purge them from the voter rolls. This alone would flip several states from Blue to Red, and reduce the vast thumb on the scales which is California.
3) Eliminate early voting and vote-by-mail, which are tailor made opportunities for untraceable fraud.
4) Require a photo ID to vote, no exceptions. Remember, the Democrats pushed through Motor-Voter, in which one can register to vote WHILE GETTING A DRIVER'S LICENSE. How then can it be an "intolerable burden" to require that same license in order to vote? 5) Require the "purple finger" marking to eliminate people voting multiple times under false names and/or identities.
It is time to drain the swamp. And it starts with honest elections.
Oh, and one last thing. People all over the country were praying for a miracle, and for Trump's election. Let us all continue to pray while we work for this.
“sowing” discord not “sewing”. I hate autocorrect.
I agree with your four point program.
This is also a nice summary of events. Downloaded & saved.
This sounds like a program.
Any state or county with a sub-par federal election system should receive zero federal funds. If your government representatives are dishonestly chosen, you should have no rights to the federal pie.
President Trump may have won partly because demRATs expected him to play by Republican rules.
One thing I found fairly incredible after I started seeing actual numbers, was because I recently read we hit 200 million registered voters in the U.S. This election we keep hearing about record turnout, but so far, neither one even reached McCain’s or Romney’s number of votes... I think main records were in early voting and maybe certain states set records? Not sure totals of “other” votes, but Trump’s + Hillary’s only about 120 mil... maybe that goes up some by the time we get real final numbers, but that leaves 80 mil minus the others, a huge number of registered that did not vote. Maybe many did and left it blank or wrote in somebody ineligible?? I was guessing it would take close to 80 mil to beat her with a mandate... but she ended up 10 mil short of Obama (v McCain). Almost feels like he got the mandate from electoral college with losing popular vote, just because of the blue states he turned.
I was always told there were no rules in a street fight... Trump finally took the fight out into the streets!
...or the machines all over the country which visibly changed Trump votes to Hillary votes.
I have helped with MANY elections and I have never seen the votes changed to another candidate. I think this has to be done on purpose.
Chris Wallace not Christ Wallace. I deeply loathe autocorrect.
Thanks for documenting all these facts.
I rarely have the time to watch TV and appreciate these reports.
I was totally stunned today at work. Almost all my staff were grinning and happy about the election. I had no clue. I thought the receptionist would be a Clinton voter but she was grinning — proudly announced that she couldn’t stand Clinton.
Please send this post to President Elect Donald Trump.
I would love to see him tidy up the voting process ensuring fair elections.
Go Trump / Pence and congratulations to them and to America!
Awesome—but don’t forget the Romney “Donald Trump is a phoney” speech. Really helped sort things out. Only Judge Jeannine saw through it. Had Romney performed as well in 2012 as The Donald did, he would have won. But that would have been beneath Mitt’s personal dignity...
D@mn, you’re right. I forgot one. Thanks for the tip!
I want the "real" polls from now on....not just the spoonfed, made up ones that make lots of money for charlatans.
Their collective reputation and prestige underwriting stats for her became a real distraction and made to seem like issues had no meaning.
On Fox, Krauthammer and Hume declaring that he lost the last debate by prudently questioning election results if fraud was discovered was duplicitous bullying. Even O'Reilly was more balanced about Trump. Thank heaven that Doocy, Kilmeade, and Hannity, and some of The Five staff (not that Rino PeRINO) were on the air.
Of course, there are plenty of details and incidents left to list but the main thing is to condense the deceptions and collusions into an enduring set of categories for management and monitoring.
I would point out that federal involvement in state voting procedures is constitutionally problematic. Unfortunately, that is the reality.
However. electronic voting machines, counting, and management systems are subject to the interstate Commerce Clause, so that Congress and the President may pass constitutionally qualified legislation that sets security standards and operational compliance requirements for such machines and systems.
A secure means of transmitting valid votes is in works in Australia using ‘Block Chain Technology’:
