Why is challenging suspicious election results ‘a threat to our democracy’?

By Jack Hellner | American Thinker | November 21, 2020

On Thursday, President Trump’s legal team presented many pieces of information about the election that deserve to be investigated.

But the media have no interest in that.

Instead, they essentially black out the news and ask Trump to concede so they can crown their chosen king. Worst of all, they continue to falsely claim there is no evidence of fraud.

The New York Times and others have written about the potential fraud on universal mail-in ballots in the past, as have other outlets, but now they call Trump a liar.

The media outlets know that rules were changed to make mail-in ballots less verifiable, but they don’t care.

They know that observation of the counting has been essentially blocked in some towns in violation of the law, and they don’t care.

They know that election officials in some states are violating laws, but laws aren’t important as long as the media’s chosen one is ahead.

Statistically, it is rare for the up-ballot candidate, the president, to significantly underperform the down-ballot candidates, but the media don’t care.

Coattails without a coat? Tell us exactly how that could happen.

They know, or should know, that Biden outperformed Hillary in only four cities: Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta, and Philadelphia, not the nation as a whole. They also know about over-votes in cities — that is, more votes than registered voters — and once again, they don’t care.

They know there have been questions about Dominion, the software provider in many states, because they certainly had those questions before.

They know that Democrat senators Elizabeth Warren, Ron Wyden, and Amy Klobuchar had significant questions about Dominion in December 2019, but they don’t care. Can anyone imagine how loud the senators and journalists would be about potential fraud by Dominion if Biden were behind? But what we have now is silence from the senators and the supposed journalists.

They know that several swing states mysteriously stopped counting votes on Election Night, but they don’t care. As a CPA with 43 years of experience, the only reason I can think they stopped counting is to cook the books, commit fraud, and change the vote.

Yet journalists don’t even ask the states why they stopped counting.

The same supposed journalists who say Trump is destroying democracy by challenging election results are the ones who:

  • Claimed that Trump was an illegitimate president for four years. These same journalists and other Democrats also called Bush an illegitimate president for four years after he beat Al Gore twenty years earlier. The playbook is always the same. Not once did I hear that Gore was threatening democracy by challenging election results for more than one month. Instead, the media cheered him on because Democrats are special.
  • Regurgitated the Russian collusion lie for years with zero evidence.
  • Never cared about all the lies and crimes of people in the Obama/Biden administration as they set out to destroy Trump and protect career criminal Hillary Clinton from prosecution.
  • Called Trump a liar for saying the Obama administration spied on his team when it is clearly true.
  • Use congenital liars and criminals like James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Jim Clapper, and John Brennan to attack Trump with known lies.
  • Cheered Obama/Biden on as they lied continuously about Obamacare and the Iran deal.
  • Willingly spread the lies about what Trump said in Charlottesville and spread the lie that Trump had not denounced radical white supremacists.
  • Along with other Democrats, called Trump and his supporters racists, sexists, bigots, homophobes, xenophobes, and every other name in the book as they bragged that Trump was divisive and continually say they are for unity. The media and other Democrats always play the race and sex card because their policies are so unpopular.
  • Looked the other way concerning all the kickbacks to the Clinton and Biden families from foreign sources and never cared about the women the Clintons and Biden were accused of abusing. The women were expendable.
  • Sought to destroy white Christian boys from Kentucky and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, without evidence, solely because of their connection to Trump. The party that preaches unity will destroy anyone who gets in its way as it pursues its quest for power.
  • Continually lie that Trump never cared about the coronavirus and never did anything about it and didn’t care about the people dying, and falsely blamed him for all deaths related to COVID. The truth is, from the CDC in August, that less than 7% of the people who died with COVID died solely because of COVID. Over 93% died because of cancer, heart disease, liver disease, lung disease, diabetes, obesity, and other co-morbidity factors. Therefore, blaming all of the deaths on COVID is a political, agenda-driven decision, not a scientific one. I assume that it is to scare the public into submission. Why don’t the media ask the CDC why it never counted deaths the same on the seasonal flu or swine flu?
  • Continually claim that the science is settled that humans and oil cause temperatures to rise and climate change when there is no scientific data to support that. The scientific data shows that in the last 150 years crude oil use went from zero to around one hundred million barrels per day, yet temperatures have risen and fallen and are within one to two degrees. It should be noted that a little ice age ended in 1850 and a little warming would be normal. Facts haven’t mattered for a long time, only power for government with Democrats in control.

Lately, the public have been treated to an Obama bragging tour where he and the fawning media have been rewriting history as fast as they can. They lie that Obama/Biden handed off a thriving economy. The truth is they had the slowest economic recovery in seventy years. They lie that there were no scandals during the Obama/Biden years. The truth is that there were massive continuous scandals that the media chose to bury. Obama lies that the only reason that Hillary lost is because we are racists. The truth is his policies were unpopular and wages were stagnant, especially for those at the bottom.

Summary: The biggest threat to our democracy, freedom and prosperity is a sycophant media that campaigns for one party and seeks to destroy the other. We are not a systemically racist country and it is absolutely not a threat to our democracy for anyone to challenge the results in an election especially when there are so many questions.

  1. The controversy over whether Trump won/or didn’t win the recent Presidential election seems(whether he’s right or wrong)to suggest that there are serious doubts about America’s election process/counting. I recall controversy over Dubya’s election prior to “9/11”.
    But, since then, NOTHING has been done to ensure that election results in the USA are completely “Kosher”(if I may use that term).
    Where there is doubt, there is real concern that the process is “DODGY” meaning, how can Americans have faith in their electoral system(Given that the USA constantly calls into question Election ‘doctoring’ in other countries(like Venezuela or other South American countries).

    Credibility is at stake here. The process MUST by completely verifiable, or else, the USA is just another American “Banana Republic”.

  2. The US is 4% of world population but experiences 25% of covid deaths! Explain this!

    Trump was warned of this particular pandemic in January and did just about nothing until mid March declaring a national emergency. Trump claims that closing down travelers from China was a big main thing, but it wasn’t. The EO had a lot of loopholes indeed such that 44,000 Chinese entered the US any in the subsequent weeks. The MAIN THING, however, is that when he closed the border, the pathogen was already in the US! The absence of mitigation procedures from January to mid March allowed the the virus to spread across the country UNCHECKED. Throughout this period (Jan-mid March) Trump talked about a “hoax” even though he now alleges that he knew better, that he knew it was very contagious and very deadly.
    Calling Trump incompetent and the reason why so many Americans have died from this pathogen would be a true statement and not a lie at all. Trump was (and remains) guilty of negligent murder of about 200,000 Americans. The survivors should charge him thus because they can show a good case of such negligence.

  3. Trump has a duty to warn Americans of the deadly pathogen and he did nothing of the sort, talking about “like a flu”, and it will “disappear soon” and don’t bother to wear masks etc.
    Negligent murder.

    • Ontogram, you should read articles before commenting on them. Otherwise you are not contributing to a conversation but just making upset outbursts.
