About All You ‘Election Deniers’

Biden is betting that Americans have forgotten that he and his Demos are on the record as “election deniers.”

“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)

Democrats are doing everything possible to avoid a midterm bloodbath like the one suffered by their last first-term president. In the 2010 midterm election, their man, Barack Obama, was the catalyst for a 63-seat Republican gain in the House (the largest seat shift since 1948) and a seven-seat gain in the Senate. In the states, Republicans gained six gubernatorial seats and flipped 20 state legislative chambers.

Of course, in 2010, Demos did not have the now-unlimited power of systemic BIG Tech and Leftmedia free speech suppression acting as political surrogates for them. Those two factors alone are now the greatest threat to “free and fair elections.”

Launching their major battlefront initiative to thwart Republican wins in nine weeks, their man, Joe Biden — Obama’s corrupt, intellectually impaired understudy — delivered an unprecedented tirade of partisan vitriol revealing their key strategy: Make the midterm election about Donald Trump and his “semi-fascist” hordes of “Trumpies” in order to rally the Democrat Party’s Trump-hating base.

Focusing all his wrath on Trump’s “extremist” legions of “MAGA Republicans” in his latest Soviet dictatorial-style red-set screed, Biden promoted himself as the savior of America’s soul and the great defender of “democracy” (which he errantly referenced 32 times to describe our Republic) against those MAGA Republican “threats” to democracy.

Biden claimed that “democracy cannot survive” if MAGA Republicans question election results:

MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. … They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself. … And they see their MAGA failure to stop a peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election as preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections. … This is a nation that respects free and fair elections. We honor the will of the people. We do not deny it. … We can’t let the integrity of our elections be undermined, for that is a path to chaos. … But democracy endures only if we, the people, respect the guardrails of the republic. Only if we, the people, accept the results of free and fair elections. … Democracy cannot survive when one side believes there are only two outcomes to an election: either they win or they were cheated. And that’s where MAGA Republicans are today. … I will not stand by and watch elections in this country stolen by people who simply refuse to accept that they lost.

I believe questioning election integrity is a very healthy debate in a Republic, but apparently not so in an authoritarian democracy.

Biden doubled down a day later, declaring, “I do think anyone who … refuses to acknowledge an election has been won, insists upon changing the way in which we rule and count votes, that is a threat to democracy.”

Apparently, in Biden’s warped political universe, to “insist upon” the most rudimentary requirement for voting — the global standard of producing an ID to ensure election integrity — constitutes “a threat to democracy” and makes its proponents “election deniers.” In fact, it actually constitutes a threat to the socialist Democrat Party’s effort to nationalize the bulk-mail ballot fraud they perfected in 2020.

For the record, in no election in American history has a national crisis, in this case a pandemic, been used to justify massive bulk-mail balloting schemes nationwide, and further, exclude any ID requirement to authenticate who was casting those votes.

Of the 155 million votes cast in 2020, 43% (66 million ballots) were cast by mail – and a majority of those in states where authentication of the person receiving and casting the ballot is not required. Of all those who voted in person, 66% voted for Trump versus 42% for Biden – which is to say that 58% of Biden ballots, almost 47 million votes, were cast by mail.

Further, regarding those who “insists upon changing the way in which we rule and count votes,” Biden is referring to states which are implementing legal measures to restore the integrity of elections – including voter ID requirements, the global standard for voting.

Again, election integrity is a threat to the Democrats’ goal of manipulating elections to ensure a permanent majority.

For the record, as Biden condemns those who question the integrity of the 2020 election resultsmore than half the country — he is hoping that Americans have forgotten that he and many Demos are on the record as “election deniers.”

Recall that in 2017, almost 70 congressional Democrats boycotted Trump’s inauguration, claiming his election was fraudulent — you know, his defeat of Hillary Clinton was a Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy.

Ironically, that turned into a Clinton/Russia collusion conspiracy to take down Trump, aided and abetted by Demo deep state operatives.

Recall also that Clinton herself denied Trump’s election: “I believe he knows he’s an illegitimate president. He knows. He knows that there were a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out the way it did.”

That congressional boycott group was led by the late John Lewis (D-GA), who declared: “I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president. I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected, and they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.” Calling out the “conspiracy,” Lewis added: “That’s not right. That’s not fair. That’s not the open democratic process.”

Other boycotters issued similar claims. Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA) said, “I will not be part of normalizing or legitimizing a man whose election may well have depended on the malicious foreign interference of Russia’s leaders.” Rep. Dwight Evans (D-PA) insisted: “I will not be attending the inauguration. Russian hacking must be investigated.”

Looking back, here are some other “election deniers.”

On the 2000 Presidential Election

On Al Gore’s defeat by George W. Bush, in 2013 Biden asserted, “[Gore] was elected president of the United States of America.”
Biden’s Chief of Staff Ron Klain said: “People frequently tell me that I should ‘get over’ the 2000 election and recount. I haven’t, and I don’t think I ever will.”
Joe Biden, 2016: “I think [Gore] won.”
Hillary Clinton, 2016: The Supreme Court “took away a presidency.”
Barack Obama, 2005: “Not every vote” was counted.
Bill Clinton, 2001: “The only way they could win the election was to stop the voting in Florida.”
Jimmy Carter, 2005: “There’s no doubt in my mind that Al Gore was elected president.”
Jamie Raskin, 2003: George W. Bush was the “first court-appointed president.”
Terry McAuliffe, 2004: “We won that election!”
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, 2016: “The Supreme Court elected the president. Al Gore won the state of Florida in 2000.”
Al Gore, 2017: “Actually I think I carried Florida.”

On the 2004 Presidential Election

Howard Dean, 2006: “I’m not confident” the election “was fairly decided” because “the machines were not reliable.”
Hillary Clinton, 2005: “It’s fair to say that there are many legitimate questions about” the “accuracy” and “integrity” of America’s election system.
Jerry Nadler, 2005: “The right to vote has been stolen from qualified voters.”
Sheila Jackson Lee, 2004: “We cannot declare that the election of November 2, 2004 was free and clear and transparent and real.”
Maxine Waters, 2005: “Problems in the Ohio election” could have been “outcome determinative.”

On the 2016 Presidential Election

Joe Biden, 2019: “I absolutely” agree that Trump is an “illegitimate president.”
Hillary Clinton, 2019: The election was “stolen.”
Jimmy Carter, 2019: “Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election and was put into office because of the Russians’ interference on his behalf.”
Kamala Harris, 2019: “Absolutely right” that Trump “didn’t really win.”
Jerry Nadler, 2017: It was a “tainted” and “illegitimate” election.
Karine Jean-Pierre, 2016: “Stolen emails, stolen drone, stolen election. Welcome to the world of #unpresidented Trump.”

On the High-Profile 2018 Georgia Gubernatorial Election

Stacey Abrams, 2019: “We won!”
Cory Booker, 2018: “Stacey Abrams’ election is being stolen from her.”
Sherrod Brown, 2018: “They stole it. It’s clear.”
Hillary Clinton, 2018: “If she had a fair election, she already would have won.”
Kamala Harris, 2019: “Without voter suppression, Stacey Abrams would be the governor of Georgia; Andrew Gillum is the governor of Florida.”
Karine Jean-Pierre, 2020: “Reminder: Brian Kemp stole the gubernatorial election from Georgians and Stacey Abrams.”
Terry McAuliffe, 2021: Abrams would have been governor “had the governor of Georgia not disenfranchised 1.4 million Georgia voters.”

Of course, in each of the aforementioned elections, Democrats rallied hordes of their own lemmings to become election deniers. As I have often noted, if not for double standards, Democrats would have no standards.
