The Art of the Steal

#ElectionCoup: Integrity Under Attack

In years past, conservatives and other Republican-leaning voters have learned to accept that a certain amount of election fraud is inevitable. We’ve taken for granted that in slimy Democrat-run districts, wards, and precincts; cities, counties and states, that some amount of election tampering and corruption is to be expected, and that Republican candidates for office must program that corruption into their calculus about what it will take to win. In Pennsylvania, for instance, there’s long been what some Republicans call the Philly-tax, where a GOP candidate must win by an overwhelming margin to make up for the amount of fraud that will be used to thwart them.  Mostly, Republicans grimly nod in agreement that this is and will always be a fact of life, as though there’s nothing to be done about it, and that the people who run these corrupt election-fraud operations are to be treated like local warlords, to whom tribute must be paid. In 2016, when Donald J. Trump shocked the world and won the presidency, these Democrat warlords decided that this would never be permitted again. Together with the party hierarchy, they have conspired through measures both covert and overt to corrupt the 2020 election. Donald J. Trump long ago wrote a book entitled The Art of the Deal, but in 2020, the Biden/Harris campaign has re-written an old thesis, using the most modern and simultaneously primitive means to concoct a new plan to corrupt this year’s election in what I now term The Art of the Steal.

The steal relies on both modern and primitive means. It uses propaganda and media collusion at the highest levels, even of outlets previously “trusted” by many mainstream Republicans. It relies on electronic ballot tabulation misfeasance, and it relies on plain old ballot manufacturing and suppression of validation of ballots. It is widespread, and Democrats have long employed all of these means and methods, but never before were so many called into service all at once, nor so clumsily and obviously. Let us examine what has been done, and whether we should so blithely, grimly shrug our shoulders in acceptance of yet another fraud carried out by such a widespread gang of electoral bandits.

For weeks, prior to the election, indeed for months, they told you, bluntly and in the open, that on election night, it would look like Trump was winning, but that as the night turned into days or weeks, the counts would shift, and Joe Biden would be elected. They could tell you this with such confidence because they were rigging the game, and they expected no opposition, no oversight, and no damned consequences to this set of actions. What they were broadcasting, in the open, was their intention to steal the election, only they didn’t call it a steal. They told you to expect it as a normal consequence of a hotly contested election. It was all propaganda, intended to get you accustomed to the idea, so that when it happened, you would not stand up, raise Hell, and put up a fuss about it. After all, you knew it was going to happen, it was inevitable they told you, and now you were seeing it happen before your very eyes. Underlying all of this is that you had been conditioned to expect it. That would make it easier for you to stomach and accept the steal.

The pollsters played their predictable roles.  They continued to use their polls to dis-spirit and demoralize Trump voters. The idea was to keep some small margin of you from the polls, since it was “hopeless” and the outcome had now been presented to you as inevitable. Ludicrous polls, showing Biden with leads of as high as 17 points in places like Wisconsin were fabricated out of bad samples, bad methodology, and purely propagandist intent. These suppression polls served a second nefarious purpose: They would help substantiate the legitimacy of Biden victories after the steal had begun. They would be used ultimately, to say effectively: “Well, we got the margins wrong, but we were right about the winner.” The problem is that for people who follow all of this, many knew or at least thoroughly suspected that these polls were as fallacious as the rest of big media’s nonsense. Still, they only had to work against that less attentive segment of the populace, who pay attention in the last week or so before an election, vote, and then go on with their lives otherwise oblivious to it all. This was the target audience, but for it to work, it only needs to get a slim margin of people to believe it, since elections can turn on a single vote. It was all aimed at the lazy or demoralized voter who too easily shrugs: “My vote doesn’t matter anyway.”

Big-Tech platforms were all in on the steal too. They were spending money like crazy in what should be considered “in-kind contributions” to the Democrats in general, and the Biden/Harris campaign in particular.  Suppression of true negative information about Biden and Harris, or Democrats generically, was widespread in social media. Facebook was throttling posts, deleting conservative political groups, banning users, placing phony warning labels on content, and conducting every conceivable form of tortious interference against conservative or even moderate content providers. They censored President Trump, people in his administration and on his campaign staff, while they permitted Joe Biden and his surrogates to make the most outrageously false claims. There’s no need to document this here, as you’ve all seen it, you’ve all been exposed to it, and you all know it to be true. This social media interference in the election was so lopsided as to be preposterous.

Of course, there were also high-tech bandits involved. We’re now only scratching the surface, but what is known at this moment is that a company called Dominion Voting Systems, co-founded by a California Democrat, has captured a broad market in the voting machines and software industry. Part of what helped them get such widespread saturation in this election were the incessant, inflated claims of “Russian interference” in the 2016 elections. Would you be surprised to learn that due to the obvious security problems with their systems and software, the State of Texas rejected them for Texas elections? Nevertheless, in 33 states and over 1,000 US counties, their software and hardware was in use for voting and tabulation. There are approximately 3,100 counties, boroughs, and parishes(all equivalent political divisions in their respective states) in the United States. This means that Dominion Voting Systems has penetration into at least one-third of the country, but more importantly, their systems are in use in some of the most populace counties, cities, and jurisdictions around the country, so that effective vote control may be closer to one-half or more of the total vote. Estimates vary, but suffice it to say that the reach of their influence is enormous on US elections.

This is important, because we learned yesterday that in one county in Michigan, the software allegedly “glitched” and moved 6,000 votes from the Trump column into the Biden column, and it swung a US House seat. A Democrat who had been winning by 5,000 votes was placed into a 1,000 vote deficit after the “glitch” was corrected. Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been working with systems and data for a long, long time. This is a “glitch?” I and others now strongly suspect that this was a feature – not a bug. Watch Sidney Powell discuss it here:

The mainstream media is even now carrying out a hoax. They’ve gone forward to claim Joe Biden is the winner. It began on Saturday morning with the Associated Press and NBC News as the first two to make the claim on Biden’s behalf. The rest, including disgraced FoxNews, have all fallen in line. It’s all propaganda. Nothing has substantially changed. No results have been certified. Federal investigators are even now arriving in Michigan to look at the allegations made in a viral video from Project Veritas on the steal going on in that state.

Another thing that’s now clear is that you should not be using FoxNews as a source. I’ve completely switched to a combination of NewsMax, OANN, and America’s Voice, all via ROKU, or youtube in some instances. For instance, NewMax has released a statement that they are not calling this election for Joe Biden because there are too many unresolved issues with the count, the fraud, and so on.

Here’s what’s actually happened:

  • The media creates an illusion of Biden inevitability
  • Social Media blocks/throttles/bans conservative or pro-Trump voices
  • On election night, after counting stops, everybody goes to bed, and suddenly the counting restarts and Biden votes begin accumulating
  • When the counting stops, Republican observers are either sent home, or forbidden to re-enter to view counting as it restarts
  • Electronic and paper vote-rigging occurs in several states, including those now in controversy
  • Media creates and fulfills previous narrative: Biden is declared winner
  • RINO Republicans/NeverTrumpers begin to label all questions of vote fraud/ballot tampering as “conspiracy theories” in effort to suppress
  • Now the Squish Republicans/NeverTrumpers will begin to insist Trump concede, joining with media narrative(already begun)
  • In social media, despite best efforts of the minders and censors, word is spreading that the whole thing is a steal

Ladies and gentlemen, you’re all grown adults, but by now, finally, after years and decades of this nonsense and treachery, you should have finally come to understand that if you put up with this now, you will never get your country back. Even now, they’re agitating with the BLM and Antifa mobs to try to force Donald Trump to concede. This is a coup. It was never an election. It’s about creating the impression of a mostly peaceful election, followed by an intransigent President who refuses to concede in order to justify whatever they intend to do next. This is a coup d’etat.

All hands on deck now. Your voices, at a minimum, will be needed to stem this tide of tyranny. You are watching the Art of the Steal, and what’s being stolen is your country. Don’t let it happen. Contact state legislators. Contact law enforcement if you personally witnessed fraud. Meanwhile, the President’s legal team is still fighting. The number of votes separating the President from Biden is very small considering the total size of the vote. The recounts are about to begin in some places. It’s not over. Whatever the media tries to pull, it’s not over, or even close to over.

How Donald Trump Can Save the World (Or at least the Internet)

Trump Can Save the World… Or at least the Internet

In the wake of the horrific shooting in New Zealand, what we’ve learned is that the country is fully invested in Internet censorship.  They now threaten to jail and fine people who possess, publish, and/or share video of the shooting.  There’s no such thing as Freedom of Speech in New Zealand, and this is a spreading phenomenon as more and more countries use their regulatory power over telecommunications companies as well as plain old tyrannical law to censor their people.  We must never permit this here in the United States, but increasingly, large corporations that claim exemptions under the Communications Decency Act have begun to behave like content publishers rather than mere publishing platforms for content creators.  This is despicable.  On the one hand, Facebook claims indemnification from lawsuits because they are not a content creator, but on the other hand, Facebook wants to control and maintain veto authority over content.   President Trump must act to take this on, and one lever he has against some foreign governments deals directly with Anglophone countries, including the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.  What he must do is threaten to walk from FVEY(pronounced Five Eyes) and begin denying them access to our signals intelligence.  They already deserve sanctions for assisting the Obama administration in spying on Trump’s campaign, but this is an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone: Reform and free the Internet along with free speech or the USA will withdraw from the UKUSA agreement.

President Trump should begin on a small scale, by conquering the Anglophone world, first. The first place he must act, sadly, is in the United States.  He must put the various “platforms” on notice that if they insist on censoring content, he will be forced to treat them just like any other content publisher.  Let’s see how that goes, first.  After that, he needs to push this first to the allegedly enlightened Anglophone world, and then to Europe, and from there, Central and South America.  After that, it gets harder, but he’s going to need to tackle this.  Not only can he save the Internet, but in the process, he can save the world. You see, the Internet really only works well when free speech prevails.

This morning, GatewayPundit published an article demonstrating pretty convincingly that Twitter has intentionally depressed the popularity of @realDonaldTrump and @POTUS in order to hamper President Trump directly.  There are two things about this that must be addressed:

  1. This may constitute an illegal campaign contribution to Democrats
  2. This would mean that Twitter is acting as a publisher, and not as a platform, which would end their exemption under the Communications Decency Act

Of course, there are all sorts of other things implied in this case, but it’s clear that Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s CEO, (@Jack on Twitter) is going to have some serious explaining to do. It’s clear that his social media platform is acting more like a content provider.  I and other conservatives have noted some “Shadow-banning” in association with our own accounts, and it began in earnest once Twitter began tinkering with its algorithms.  Early on, what you got in your timeline was always in pure date-time order, meaning you got the tweets of the people you followed, and that was it.  Then Twitter inserted ads.  After that, they began manipulating who you saw, and how often, and started trying to determine whose tweets you ought to see, and whose tweets you ought not see.  Then came the great timeline kerfuffle in which they openly and brazenly manipulated the way your timeline received tweets.  The blow-back was pretty severe, so they tucked away an option in your settings, hidden in plain sight, that permits as user to revert to plane date-time ordered timelines.  The problem is that even there, Twitter is still manipulating the results.

For the last several years, it has been strongly suspected, and now proven, that Twitter has shadow-banned users and content for what appear to be wholly political motivations. “Shadow-banning” basically lets a user send out his or her tweets like normal, but those tweets are hidden from the user’s followers, and neither the user nor his followers are aware.  In some cases, they’ve used this to simply delay the posting of tweets, meaning that your tweets will ultimately be seen, but often long after their relevance has been lost.  Sometimes, this seems to be user-based, and sometimes, it’s based purely on the content of a particular tweet.

What all of this means is that Twitter is engaged in systematic discrimination against conservatives and other users they don’t like for various reasons.  This means that they’re actually designing the content of peoples’ timelines, rather than letting come what may, as should be the case if they’re simply a platform for free speech, as they claim. It’s time to address this, and President Trump has that authority.  Yesterday, Devin Nunes(R-CA) filed a lawsuit against Twitter for defamation based on these and related types of discriminatory and misleading activities.  Here’s a clip from Hannity, on which Nunes appeared on Monday:

The President is in a position to do something about all of this, and he should leverage any assistance he can get from Congress, the Federal Communications Commission, the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and any other assets at his disposal.  If Twitter(and other social media companies) is going to maintain its exemption under the Communications Decency Act, then they must immediately cease censorship of content.  Otherwise, they must lose their exemptions and be subject to the myriad of lawsuits that would ordinarily arise if that exemption was not in place.  The whole purpose of that exemption was to create a place where free speech could reign, and not be confounded by endless lawsuits, but when the platform itself is corrupted, it becomes a publisher and not a referee preventing abuses.  That’s where the Federal role to intercede arises.

In our modern age, Twitter is just one of a number of social media companies, but as Nunes contends in his lawsuit, to remain competitive in politics, business, or almost any sort of pursuit, one must be tied into social media or be overrun by competitors.  It’s therefore essential that Twitter and other “platforms” be brought to heel, before they are making all of the decisions about who can speak in any context on any subject.  What they’re doing now is a fraud and a hoax against their users.  If President Trump wants to make a real difference, he can save free speech, and thereby save the prime value of the Internet, which is to give you and I a voice and a way to plug into the global discussion.  Otherwise, it really is just an Orwellian world of double-speak in which freedom doesn’t exist despite flowery words to the contrary.

Go get ’em, President Trump!
