THE WAY I SEE IT by Don Polson Red Bluff Daily News 12/29/2020
Merry Christmas and New Year, Trump Won
Upon the passing of a personal birthday several days before Christmas, the Merry observance of the Sacred birth of Jesus Christ assumes priority: Having abandoned gift-giving, card-mailing, tree- and house-decorating, partying and other superficialities, focus turns to solemnity and sacred (or not) music.
A CW channel 2-hour special on the history and universality of “Silent Night, Holy Night” brought needed spiritual uplift, while several of the Country Music Channel music videos provided alternately somber reflection and welcome comic relief. If you haven’t watched Ray Stevens’ rendition lately, this surely rings a bell: “‘Cause Santa Claus is watching you (He’s everywhere, he’s everywhere).” The animated “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” actually improves on the hilarity of the song itself.
Informed supporters of President Trump cheer his accomplishments and his efforts to reverse what should, on its face, have no standing—the attempted theft of a presidential election “by hook or crook, phony ballots, or voting machine manipulation.” We are neither in denial, engaged in “gaslighting,” possessed of conspiracy theories or given over to “wish-craft.”
Hugh Hewitt’s book, “If It’s Not Close, They Can’t Cheat,” stating the obvious reality of electoral fraud, may have unintentionally guided purveyors of election graft: Don’t let Trump’s lead stand. Have the tools in place in case the wave of votes—reflecting economic satisfaction, Trump’s approval and enthusiasm by his supporters—gives him insurmountable leads. Ignore the “bellwether” counties and states (Iowa, Ohio, Florida) that have never gone to the loser; Trump won them all.
The “gaslighting” (massive lies by liars with the power to limit those subjected to the falsehoods from having their doubts proven or even validated) has culminated in a mainstream news media narrative and paradigm: Refusing to accept the Biden/Harris victory is the equivalent of denying the Jewish Holocaust by Hitler. A ludicrous assertion emanating from Trump Derangement Syndrome.
“Gaslighting” of Trump’s supporters has just been the latest form of quasi-violent intimidation that started with the riots, arson, destruction and murders inflicted by radical antifa/BLM-ers; and so-called “protests” over “unarmed” black men killed by law enforcement. Though not obvious, such violence has accompanied every leftist revolution and attempted takeover of countries, as Lenin specifically advocated to destabilize the target populations.
Hence, lawyers and law firms—who as a profession have never been subjected to disrespect and sanction for defending the most heinous of criminals and terrorists—are threatened with retaliation for involvement with President Trump’s legal efforts to have illegal votes and voting practices annulled. “Michigan AG Dana Nessel Pursues Sanctions Against Lawyers Questioning Election,” (by Kyle Olson, 12/26) illustrates the fact that only Democrats are allowed to raise questions about elections they lose.
Likewise, other thinly-veiled threats: “Former Wisconsin Judge: Court System ‘Deeply Intimidated’ by the Left” (by Janita Kan, 12/21); “Hostile Reaction in Detroit Forced Election Official Into Hiding” (Charlotte Cuthbertson, 12/21) both at Theepochtimes.com. Trump’s staff risks permanent unemployment.
Many stories show threats of violence against those courageous enough as supposedly-free citizens to simply recount witnessed irregularities, rule-breaking and legally-questionable practices that only benefited His Fraudulency, Joe Biden. “Georgia Voting Technician: I Saw Irregularities with the Mail-in Ballots” (by Matt Vespa, 12/8 Townhall.com), recounts how Bridget Thorne detailed the massive unsecured ballot handling she witnessed.
A wide array of credible observers and partisans are not wrong. “Tony Shaffer: Election Anomalies ‘Too Vast and Too Detailed to Be Ignored’” by Li Hai and Jan Jekielek (12/10, theepochtimes.com), quotes Mr. Shaffer, president of the London Center for Policy Research and former senior intelligence officer: “We feel that the anomalies here are too vast and too detailed to be ignored.” Shaffer’s not a Trump advocate, but “We’re specifically asking for investigations or other resolution of the questions we’re raising…First is the obvious statistical anomalies…spikes in numerous locations which cannot be supported without some level of outside force.” Specifically, the massive tranches of Biden-only votes in multiple states between about midnight and 5 a.m. are impossible to account for.
Secondly, Shaffer said there had been many potential acts of physical fraud, such as the documented, verified, “outside-of-normal-operations” handling and disappearance of hundreds of thousands of ballots, observed by truck driver Jesse Morgan in Lancaster, PA.
Shaffer said the third category of evidence is electronic or digital fraud. “That’s the most difficult to prove because you have to get access to the source code and the actual mechanical elements of those systems. There’s absolutely no reason for anyone to deny a competent third party from examining the machines at the forensic level to see if there were any shenanigans or not.” Yet, the Dems deny such access.
In his own interest, Biden’s folks should “get out there and try to help resolve this…74 million people are not convinced Joe Biden won (and he’s not) seeking to convince them.” Mindless repetitions of “no evidence” don’t do that.
I doubt local Democrats will look it up (use title or Donpolson.blogspot.com), but the case is made and proven: “Why the 2020 Election Was Neither Free nor Fair,” by Joel B. Pollack, details how the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s standards were ignored. “The absolute right to a secret ballot” is abrogated with mail-in votes, ballot harvesting and unsecured drop boxes. “The right to express opinions without interference” was denied by ballot harvesting, union (and other leftist) intimidation of personal expression.
“The equal opportunity of access to the media” was denied to Trump’s campaign by legacy and social media. “The right of candidates to security” was likewise shredded by the outbreaks of violence. The “cancel culture” took aim at the “right to freedom of association.” There’s more, much more.
