The 2020 Election — Unfortunately, Mixed Results

The future of Liberty does not rest on one political cycle, but upon millions of grassroots American Patriots ready to defend it.

“We should be unfaithful to ourselves if we should ever lose sight of the danger to our liberties if anything partial or extraneous should infect the purity of our free, fair, virtuous, and independent elections.” —John Adams (1797)

Tuesday, I voted in person. Here in Tennessee, I could’ve voted early or absentee with confidence — there are no Demo bulk-mail ballots here, and ID is required — but there is something deeply affirming about voting in person. Standing in line for 90 minutes was a first in our precinct, where the wait in a normal year is 10 minutes. Of course, there’s nothing “normal” about this year.

It’s fitting that on my way to vote, I also exercised my Second Amendment rights — before Joe Biden and Kamala Harris can infringe on those rights, as they’ve promised to do. I did so by picking up a new SIG Sauer P365 9mm pistol. (I don’t mean this as an advertisement for SIG, but I carried a 226 as my service weapon for many years, and the new micro-compact 365 is flawless.)

So where do the presidential and other election results stand?

First, consider all the forces were aligned against Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans this year despite the Trump administration’s considerable and in fact historic achievements. (See “Promises Made — Promises Kept.”)

Predictably, Democrats effectively politicized the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. The racist party of division and hate used the canard of “systemic racism” as political fodder to incite Marxist Black Lives Matter radicals and their cadres of anarchist agitators to riot in urban centers across the nation.

Hate, the result of irrational fear and anger Trump Derangement Syndrome is a powerful motivator. During this campaign, the Left mobilized a LOT of Trump haters whose “passion” was every bit as motivating as that demonstrated by Trump’s supporters. And elections are, for the vast majority of voters, not about policies but about personalities. Arguably, President Trump injured his reelection prospects with his chaotic communications and by allowing himself to become the face of COVID misery.

Those massive challenges were on top of the perennial challenges posed by the Leftmedia and social media collusion with the Democrat Party principals. The dollar value of that collusion is incalculable.

As I’ve noted before, imagine what the American political landscape would look like if the mass media and social media platforms were actually politically neutral. That landscape would take a seismic shift to the right.

And then there was the gift of hundreds of millions in “soft money” graft from socialist billionaires, including George Soros and Michael Bloomberg, and their fellow socialists, Jeff Bezos and Tom Steyer.

In fact, after spending $1.2 BILLION on his own failed presidential bid, Bloomberg dropped $100 million in Florida to defeat Trump – and failed. That, and hundreds of millions more from other leftists, was on top of the almost $900 million in hard Demo dollars spent nationwide on failed efforts to flip the Senate.

As Trump noted correctly, “Democrats are the party of the big donors. The big media, big tech… Republicans have become the party of the American worker.” Indeed, Republican gains among Hispanic and Black voters demonstrated just that. They are increasing the ranks of grassroots American Patriots.

Consequently, Donald Trump is hanging on by the thinnest of threads, as Democrats continue to find more Demo ballots to push Biden over the requisite 270 electoral votes. By the way, did you notice that big states with Republican governors — like Florida, Texas, and Ohio — had smooth and orderly votes completed on Tuesday? The holdup, in every sense of that word, is in states with Democrat governors — Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Nevada. Or, in Georgia, one Democrat county. Go figure.

At this writing, both Trump and Biden are declaring victories.

According to President Trump: “This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country. … Frankly, we did win this election. … We want the law to be used in a proper manner. So we’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to be finding any ballots at 4 o'clock in the morning.”

Biden declared: “While the votes continue to be counted, we’re going to remain vigilant. The right to vote has been at the center of our democracy since the founding of this nation, and we’re going to protect the integrity of the vote. … But I truly do believe that we are on the road to victory.”

Recall that in the first presidential debate, moderator Chris Wallace asked Biden, “Will you pledge not to declare victory until the election is independently certified?”

Joe Biden answered, “Yes.”

For Biden to assert, with a straight face, that Democrats are going “to protect the integrity of the vote” is laughable. Bulk-mailing ballots completely undermines the integrity of the vote.

Unfortunately I don’t see a path to victory for Trump.

The “good” news is, that it’s astounding on the day after this election, there was no clear presidential winner. Outside of the leftist strongholds in the Northeast and Left Coast, America remains deeply divided, which means no overwhelming mandate for Biden and Harris — but they will rule as if they had one.

I note “astounding” because, despite the pre-election polling odds, the HARRIS/Biden ticket performed more poorly than the Democrat Party operatives and their Leftmedia propagandists hoped.

The Demo/Leftmedia conglomerate worked their fake polling magic in advance of the election, deliberately using skewed polling to achieve the “Pollaganda Effect” with the calculated outcome of voter suppression — effectively emboldening Biden support while dissuading Trump support. But the presidential election remained close in most states. Despite disgraceful polling like Real Clear Politics projecting Biden would have a 7.2% winning margin, it looks like Biden won the popular vote by about two percentage points.

Recall that on Election Day, The New York Times declared the mainstream media should be the ultimate arbiters of the presidential election: “The role of declaring the winner of a presidential election in the U.S. falls to the news media. The broadcast networks and cable news outlets have vowed to be prudent.” In regards to the Demo/Leftmedia Pollaganda strategy, combined with social media collusion, they have mastered directing election outcomes.

In 2016, Trump received 63 million votes, while Hillary Clinton tallied 66 million — thanks to California. The record vote in a presidential election was Barack Obama’s in 2008, when he received 69.5 million. The latests counts indicated that President Trump now has 69.7 million votes, leaving Obama’s 2008 record in the rear-view mirror. That is seven million more votes than Trump received in 2016 — which was a million votes more than any prior Republican presidential candidate. As for Biden, he’s got 73.6 million votes — four million more than the Obama record. Yes, sleepy Joe Biden, the guy who couldn’t draw flies to his campaign rallies.

Clearly, the biggest contributing factor to Biden’s campaign totals is the Democrat’s fraudulent bulk-mail ballot scheme — tens of millions of ballots in Democrat-controlled states mailed to last known addresses of registered voters. That would account for what Democrats promised would be a “red mirage” — Trump appearing to win some states he won in 2016 but Biden ultimately prevailing.

As Joe Biden himself declared in a colossal political gaffe a week before the election: “We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter-fraud organization in the history of American politics.” Indeed they did.

The Demos’ bulk-mail ballot fraud is their THIRD attempted coup d'état — the first being the “Russia collusion” delusion and the second being the Pelosi/Schiff impeachment charade. Voter fraud is the Left’s final coup frontier as they are likely to succeed.

Beyond the presidential election, retention of the Senate is looking fair, as the Maine Senate race has just been called for Republican Susan Collins and Alaska will likely hold Republican.

Unfortunately, in both Georgia senate races, neither Republican David Perdue nor Kelly Loeffler obtained a majority of votes, which means they are headed for runoffs in January. Thus, Democrats and their billionaire backers will dump hundreds of millions into the Peach State to flip those seats — and if they succeed, the Republican’s 52-48 advantage becomes a tie. Then, if Biden succeeds, his VP Kamala Harris, the most leftist member of the Senate when she was there, will be the tie breaker vote.

Chuck Schumer’s path to tyranny is Georgia.

North Carolina is still counting ballots, but fortunately Republican Sen. Thom Tillis is maintaining his lead.

This battle is setting up to be the most epic political contest in the history of any state and by far, the most expensive.

The mere prospect of retaining Senate control is remarkable given that Republicans had to defend 23 seats when Demos only had 12 seats to defend. And the flood of money from rich white leftists was astounding. In South Carolina, where Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham was challenged by Jaime Harrison, Graham won 55.1% to 43.6%, despite the fact Harrison raised more than $100 million to defeat Graham.

The Senate seat I most regret losing was in Michigan, John James, who looked like he might have won until the “late” ballot counts.

In the House, there are Republican pickups of at least nine seats. Currently Demos have a 219 to 204 lead, but there are 12 undecided seats and Republicans are leading in 10 of those, which could narrow Nancy Pelosi’s margin to just a seven seat majority. And the GOP has added 11 women to its ranks.

Demos know 2022 is on the horizon and could be a tough year for the House if Biden/Harris run to the Left. But GOP will face another tough slate of Senate races in 2022.

In the states, Republicans netted one Republican governor for a 27-23 total and picked up two legislatures, as the left was spending millions trying to flip legislatures.

Again, arguably, it is the emotionally incontinent “Hate Trump” vote that accounts for his loss, while there were, in the same election cycle, Republican gains in statewide elections.

As I wrote shortly after President Trump took office in 2017: “The day he arrived in DC, he dropped a bomb on the status quo in Congress and its special interests. He dropped a bomb on the regulatory behemoths and their bureaucratic bottlenecks. He dropped a bomb on the trade and national security institutions and alliances that failed miserably over the previous eight years. And he dropped a bomb on all the pundits and mainstream media outlets.”

It took the audacity of an outsider to move the needle of the entrenched Beltway culture.

Unfortunately, Trump’s dominating brazen New York braggadocious persona was only part of the complex mosaic of who Donald Trump is — but it is the part that triggered the haters — almost daily. Trump has a personal side that his friend Herschel Walker described, and if he had channeled that side of his public persona the way Ronald Reagan did, he would celebrating a landslide victory today.

Fact is, this was Trump’s election to lose — and he did, including states he solidly carried in 2016. The loss comes with dire consequences for all the good his administration has done. Many of Trump’s policies were achieved with the stroke of an executive pen, and will be undone the same way.

All that said, if Biden prevails and if he can find a path to a Senate majority through the courts now or in 2020, here is what he and Harris, and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, have planned.

They will insist Trump “stole the Supreme Court” and endeavor to pack the Court. They will also endeavor to pack the Senate by advancing statehood for Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico.

In a final blow to our Republic, they will attempt to abolish the Electoral College. As a reminder, this would give the people of Los Angeles County alone (population 10,040,000) more voice than those of 41 states with fewer people. As it is now, the nation is already largely controlled by urbanites, who are the most pliable Democrat voters. It comes down to Patriots across the nation versus cowering and helpless leftist urban dwellers and their “white privilege suburbanites,” all of whom depend on Patriots for their existence more than they know.

Of course to ultimately succeed in their effort to overtake the Rule of Law with their statist power, they must undermine the last line of defense for American Liberty, the Second Amendment. Biden and Harris will start chipping away at that “palladium of the Liberties of the Republic” on day one.

These leftist objectives will be vigorously pursued by a Harris-Pelosi administration, or whomever takes Demo Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s place once the next Congress convenes — after Biden. The central government will take an exponential leap to the left, supported by their leftist lemmings.


“After Biden has resigned”?

As I wrote the week Biden tapped Harris, if elected, Biden will likely resign early in his first year in office due to his “progressive state of dementia.” Pelosi has already seeded the legislation for Biden’s path to resign. This gives the Democrat Party plausible deniability to remove Biden, and, of course, he will be complicit in that political maneuver, and, ostensibly “acquiesce” to House Democrats in order to cover the fact that the real candidate has been Kamala Harris all along. Thus, Democrats will avoid protest from Biden supporters that the transition fix was in before the election.

I should note that the biggest winner, beyond the rising tide of statist Democrat socialism, is Red China, the nation posing the most significant existential threat to the United States. After putting the world economy into a tailspin, China’s investment in “The Big Guy” defeating Trump will pay rich dividends.

Finally, in a very real sense, this election was, in fact, a “BATTLE for the SOUL of the NATION,” as Biden and Harris declared in their campaign slogan, and if they prevail with the Senate, it will become a BATTLE for the FUTURE of AMERICAN LIBERTY.

For those of us who have sworn “to support and defend” the promise and legacy of American Liberty enshrined in our Constitution, and rise every day with that obligation central to our mission, we approach the imminent threat to Liberty posed by Biden and Harris on a very different level. We will never surrender to tyranny, the inheritance of Liberty endowed by our Creator.

All said, take heart Patriots, because almost 74 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. The BIG difference between Trump and Biden voters as I noted above, is that most of those Demos are dullard urban voters and their “white privilege” elitist suburban benefactors, who depend in large measure on working Patriots across our country for their basic needs.

Stand fast and firm! Remember who YOU are, brothers and sisters — who WE are together.

Fellow Patriots, this has indeed been the most challenging election cycle I have ever witnessed. The future of Liberty does not rest on one political campaign or cycle. It rests upon the dedication of millions of grassroots American Patriots who remain steadfast in defense of the Unalienable Rights of Man.
