Voting fraud, media bias, and why Trump can't accept rigged election results

wallaceIn the final debate, GOP nominee Donald Trump won a decisive victory over his ethically challenged opponent, Hillary Clinton. Once again this result was achieved despite an unfair moderator, Chris Wallace of Fox News, who gave much more time to Hillary Clinton and frequently interrupted Donald Trump.  

At least some uncomfortable issues were raised for Hillary Clinton such as her corrupt foundation and her email scandal, but there was still not an examination of the Benghazi terrorist attack or her questionable health.  

While Wallace mentioned her comments in favor of “open borders,” he ignored many of the controversial remarks of her senior adviser John Podesta that were released by WikiLeaks in their voluminous email disclosures.  

Overall, Trump scored some good points on issues such as immigration, her handling of the Middle East and ISIS and the disastrous trade deals. He missed some opportunities on reminding Americans about the economic disaster we are facing and Hillary’s desire to continue the Obama agenda. While he did mention Obamacare, he should have tied Hillary to an even more oppressive government run healthcare solution that she advocated as First Lady.  

After the debate, the liberal mainstream media focused on Trump’s characterization of Hillary as a “nasty woman.” They claimed that it will hurt him with female voters, but everyone knows that Hillary is “nasty.” For evidence, we just have to look at the statements of those who worked for her in the Arkansas State Police, the Secret Service and the State Department. There have been plenty of books written by former Clinton security officials testifying to her horrible treatment of people assigned to provide her protection.  

The liberal media also latched on to Trump’s comment that he would not automatically accept an election result. This makes perfect sense, before an outcome can be accepted by a presidential candidate such as Trump, any reports of voting irregularities must be investigated. If there is voter fraud and manipulation of the vote, the result should be challenged in court.  

Trump is not advocating military action or civil unrest, but he wants to ensure a fair result. We know that there are many irregularities in our voting system. According to a 2012 report by the Pew Research Center, “Approximately 24 million—one of every eight—voter registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate.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.” Of course, this situation has only gotten worse since 2012 and any efforts to clean up the voter rolls are always opposed by Democrats. For example, Republican attempts to mandate voter identification are routinely labeled “racist” by Democrats who usually file lawsuits to thwart such measures.  

On a more sinister level, we just need to look at James O’Keefe of Project Veritas who released undercover videos of Democrat operatives boasting of promoting violence at Trump rallies and engaging in voter fraud. There have been examples of Black Panther voter intimidation in Philadelphia in 2008 and suspicious 2012 vote totals in Cleveland and other cities where Obama received 100% of the vote in selected precincts.   

Americans will not know for sure until election night how the vote turns out, but everyone should hope for a fair result. Unfortunately, it has not always been that way. In the 1960 presidential election, Richard Nixon was almost certainly the victim of voter fraud in Texas and Illinois. While he refused to challenge the results, but it does not change the facts that the election was probably stolen from him.  

In the 2000 election, Al Gore challenged the Florida results and the final outcome was not decided until 36 days after election night. Eventually, Gore accepted the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to overturn the Florida Supreme Court’s decision regarding an ongoing recount and in effect award George W. Bush the Florida electoral votes and the presidency.  

Of course, the real “rigging” is being provided on daily basis by the mainstream news media, Hillary’s cheering section. In fact, according to Jesse Watters of Fox News, so-called “journalists” were cheering for Hillary in the press area outside of the debate in Las Vegas.  This is no surprise as network news broadcasts have been ignoring the WikiLeaks disclosures, but giving heavy coverage to unproven allegations of unwanted sexual advances by Donald Trump. On Thursday October 13, the mainstream news broadcasts devoted 23 minutes to the salacious accusations against Trump and less than a minute to the incredibly important WikiLeaks stories, which contained offensive comments about Catholics, collusion with the media and much more.   

For anyone not totally convinced of monolithic media support for the Clinton campaign, just check the Center for Public Integrity’s report which analyzed all donations from journalists in this election cycle. It was discovered that an amazing 96% or $382,000 was given to Clinton and only 4% or $14,000 was donated to Trump.  

To win, Trump must overcome the media, the Democrats, the Republican Party establishment and all of the special interests who protect the status quo. He must also overcome a very flawed electoral system that can easily be manipulated by Clinton supporters.  

Is Trump fighting a “rigged” system? Of course he is.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
