Yes, There Was a Conspiracy

Time magazine lays out the anti-Trump collusion that helped secure electoral victory for Biden.

Well, at least they’ve admitted it.

No, not to stuffing ballot boxes in Philly or Detroit or Milwaukee, but to conspiring and colluding to do everything in their power — including changing the rules — to beat Donald Trump. For leftists, desperate times called for desperate measures. And it took every ounce of collusion between Democrats and their fellow travelers in Big Media, Big Tech, Big Ed, Big Labor, Big Sport, Big Pharma, Big Academia, Wall Street, Hollywood, and a host of others for Borderless Joe Biden to beat Donald John Trump and his 74 million legit votes.

Hopefully, that paragraph won’t get us banned by the free-speech fraidy cats. Besides, the title of the incriminating Time magazine article admits as much: “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.”

“Saved” it from what, we wonder?

Apparently from theft by us Deplorables. Time’s Molly Ball says that when Trump challenged the results of the election, corporate America turned on him. “In a way, Trump was right,” she writes. “There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes … an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain — inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests — in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s [wait for it!] assault on democracy.”

Ah, yes. Whenever a Republican challenges the results of an election won by a Democrat, it’s an assault on democracy. Of course, ours is a constitutional republic, not a democracy. And democracy is little more than mob rule. As Founder James Madison rightly noted in Federalist 55, “Had every Athenian citizen been a Socrates, every Athenian assembly would still have been a mob.”

Thus, one man’s “assault on democracy” is another man’s defense of the republic against mob rule by the Left.

As James Freeman writes in The Wall Street Journal, “Changing the rules of a game right before it’s played normally inspires skepticism, if not cynicism. But a new Time magazine report celebrates a well-funded effort to change voting processes and the flow of political information before the 2020 elections. Time’s Molly Ball happily describes a ‘conspiracy’ among the progressive left, big labor, big business and the Washington establishment to counter Donald Trump and suppress unwanted elements of U.S. political conversation before and after Election Day. Like the various actors she describes at the heart of this vast campaign, Ms. Ball presents it as a virtuous effort to protect democracy from Mr. Trump and Covid-19. The participants in the conspiracy alleged by Ms. Ball certainly seem to have influenced the outcome.”

Longtime conservative thinker and columnist Gary Bauer says that the forces arrayed behind Biden interfered with the election by changing rules and laws, steering the coverage, and controlling the information. He writes, “Big Media and Big Tech manipulated the news and covered up major stories that were embarrassing to Biden and the left. And I was struck by the admission in this article of just how much the street protests we have seen in the past year were coordinated and not spontaneous events. There were plans for major post-election protests, but liberal activists were ordered to ‘stand down.’ One progressive leader said, ‘We wanted to be mindful of when was the right time to call for moving masses of people into the street.’”

So President Trump was right about what we were up against — and still are — even if some of his legal team appear to have gone off the reservation in terms of allegations of massive electronic vote manipulation by the likes of Dominion and Smartmatic.

But given the Left’s admission that its collusion helped decide the 2020 presidential election, what’s next?

As Bauer concludes, “I am bringing this article to your attention not to demoralize you but to urge you to remain in the battle for faith, family, and freedom. The left succeeds in part because it never gives up. It is constantly organizing, constantly fundraising, constantly influencing officials, constantly registering new voters, etc. We must be just as committed to our values as leftists are to theirs.”
