Peter has been on a roll lately (you do read him every day, don't you?) Today he writes about the Democrat's rather transparent plans to commit massive voter fraud in November:
I must confess that from my perspective, looking at how the progressive left has warped and manipulated anything they could get their hands on in recent months, I'm inclined to agree with Bracken. When postal votes are issued en masse, with few if any safeguards to ensure they reach those they're supposed to reach, and even fewer safeguards to prevent their manipulation and misuse before they're returned, that's far from a remote possibility.
Yup. But it doesn't matter, this is just the latest in the Democratic Party's Wile E. Coyote campaign against Donald Trump. It hasn't worked so far, and it won't work this time. Let's just look at the current political situation as a proof point, shall we?
The Democratic Party unleashed a summer of riot, arson, and looting through their Antifa and Black Lives Matter street muscle. The thought that they had Trump on the horns of a dilemma - that he had only two choices, both bad:
- Send in a military response resulting in a Kent State moment and convincing the American public that he was a dictator-in-waiting, or
- Sit back and watch the cities burn in which case the Democrats and the Media (but I repeat myself) will paint him as heartless to the plight of the cities.
Trump was smart enough to choose option 2, but things didn't play out like the Democrats had planned. While the media pushed and pushed, and huffed and puffed to paint the rioting as Trump's fault that didn't stick. People from sea to shining sea saw that it was Democratic politicians who were egging on the rioters, and Democratic Mayors and Governors who were forcing police to stand down in the face of street thugs. Trump is now riding high in the polls on his consistent, strong Law And Order platform and the Wile E. Democrat has figured out that he ran out onto thin air ...
Oops. So now it's on to ACME Plan #493, vote by mail fraud ...
This is the plan that Peter posts about. Basically it's mail a ballot to every registered voter, have street muscle raid mailboxes and fill out the ballots, complain that Trump's "Landslide" is only because the mail hasn't arrived, and bingo - Slow Joe Biden becomes President as Trump fades quietly into the sunset.
As if Trump would fade quietly into anything. The whole scheme relies on something that is absurdly unbelievable (Peter's quotes from the article he links to):
Journalists can also help people understand that voter fraud is extraordinarily rare, and, in particular, that there’s nothing nefarious about voting by mail.
Who believes this? The only reason that these people even say this is that nobody has ever done a systematic nation wide search for voting fraud. But Trump would have every reason to do that. Remember, voting rolls are public records. Let's look at the massive amount of data that would be easily discovered in a public records search:
- Voters registered at the wrong address
- Voters registered at clearly fraudulent addresses
- Votes cast from the above voters
- Voters who voted in person, but for which a ballot was also received by mail
- Voters who voted in multiple States
This is only off the top of my head; there will be lots more here. Within a month of starting this analysis, the Trump campaign will have identified and quantified the scale of the fraud and the Justice Department will have opened criminal investigations in all 50 States and the District of Columbia. The election will be on hold.
And here is where we see things fall apart for the Democrats, just like they have in this Summer of Arson. Even with the Media pushing, pushing, pushing that there's nothing to see here, nosiree, move along folks, people will absolutely see that there's something going on there. The Democratic politicians will discredit themselves by claiming that nothing is going on (when something is clearly going on). Some politicians will discredit themselves by refusing to release voting rolls and records. Some politicians will be discredited when they are criminally charged by the Department of Justice. Al of these politicians will be Democrats. It will be worse if there are more riots by the Democrat's street muscle.
It's all exactly like the "peaceful protester" claims, and it will work out exactly the same for the Democrats. And so their attempt to paint Trump as a Dictator-in-waiting will boomerang. I'm not sure how this Republic will handle the upcoming political crisis, but a solid majority in this country will think that the Democrats tried to steal the election and got caught red handed. I just don't see how the population will consent to being governed by the Democrats under those circumstances.
In all honesty, I think the result would be for the Democratic Party to fall apart like the Whig Party did - seen as unfit to govern. Not that I'm keen on one-party government run by the GOP, but that's exactly where this will head. Donald Trump knows all of this. It's simply not credible that plans are not already going into place. Unlike the milk toast Republicans of days past, Trump is out to save America and won't settle to being a graceful loser.
