No Minister

Which election is stolen now?

with one comment

I guess Politico has become an alternative for those wanting to read about US politics but who are no longer very trusting of the traditional MSM – especially the NYT, WaPo and the three alphabet TV channels.

Unfortunately the same sort of people who work for those latter businesses also end up working for Politico. The bias is not in the particular media but in the minds of the journalists and editors, and they carry that virus with them everywhere that they go.

In my previous post I linked to a Tucker Carlson piece from Fox News about Joe Biden’s recent speech where – among other desperate claims – he talked about how it might take days to get the final results in tomorrow’s Mid-Term elections, and that nobody should question the result if that happens.

Tucker described this as as a “bizzare” take that “did not inspire confidence” – but I think that’s the Good Will take. It struck me as dangerous. For decades Western democracies, including vast ones like the USA, had no problem in deciding elections on election night, even when they were tight.

Only in recent years has this nonsense become more common, especially in the USA, and the reason is the increased amount of mail-in voting, which has been heavily pressed by the Democrats with the claim that it increases voting participation – and hence any resistance to it, like validating that the ballot is a genuine one from the actual voter who could not come to the polling booth in person, is “voter suppression”.

Thus the Democrat anger about the Georgia election laws being tightened up by the Republicans who run the state, in the aftermath of 2020. President Biden said the new laws were so awful that they weren’t just Jim Crow 2.0 but “Jim Eagle” (clumsy metaphor to say the least). Corporates were enlisted to attack the state by moving their business out and MLB’s All Star game was shifted to 95% White Colorado. As it turns out, Black voting numbers were up in the various Georgia 2022 primary elections, and by considerable margins.

So much for “Jim Eagle”.

But one of the other amusing things that has emerged out of the last two years is that the US Left can no longer attack such claims as “conspiracy theories”, because they’ve got their own. This should have been obvious to anybody who remembered the howls about the 2000 Presidential election (“Selected, not elected”), claims about dirty work with electronic voting machines (Senior Democrat representative and power player James Clyburn) in 2004, and of course the whole “Russian interference” screamfest in the 2016 election.

Yet the Democrats and their MSM allies are so confident in their powers of propaganda that they appear to be making the claim again, in advance, and sometimes in the same breath with which they defend the 2020 election as the cleanest ever.

The 2020 presidential election was rife with allegations of voting machine hacks that were later debunked. Yet there are real risks that hackers could tunnel into voting equipment and other election infrastructure to try to undermine Tuesday’s vote.

Or to put it another way…

Politico:
Anyone Alleging Voter Fraud in the 2020 Election the Democrats Won (LOL) With the Most Votes in History (LOL) Is a Big-Lie-Peddling Jan 6 Insurrectionist Ultra-MAGA who wants to destroy democracy .

Also Politico:
Election Fraud Is Real and the Vote Tomorrow Will Probably be #Hacked

Or to put it yet another way…. the Democrats are going to lose, badly, and Politico knows it.

Tomorrow is going to be lit.

  1. Lol – despite the all the babble about supporting “Democracy™ coming from the USA’s political elites American democracy is highly dysfunctional and the correlation between the “will of the people” and what is delivered is actually asymptotic to zero.
