Biden has every reason to cooperate in dealing with Trump’s concerns.
Do you remember four years ago when Democrats accepted that Donald Trump won the election and joined with Republicans in a call for the nation to “come together as Americans?”
Neither do I.
Twenty years ago, in the contest between Vice President Al Gore and George W. Bush, do you remember when Florida – and thus the election – was initially called for Dubya by the thinnest of margins? Remember how the Democrats said that even though it was close, it was nevertheless time for the country to accept the fact that the voters had spoken?
Funny, I have no recollection of that either.
Here’s what I do remember. When Al Gore challenged the outcome in Florida, the country – and the Bush campaign – gave him 37 days to make his case. During that time, Gore didn’t give an inch until the issues he raised were finally decided by the Supreme Court.
Donald Trump – at this moment following Election Day and the “projections” of the media notwithstanding – shouldn’t give an inch either. (And just for the record, news organizations don’t “call” the race for president. Please see Article II, Section 1 along with amendment number 12 of the U.S. Constitution.)
There are good reasons for Donald Trump to raise objections to the outcome of this election. We don’t have time to examine all of them but here are some highlights.
This election comes down to about 120,000 votes out of over 150 million cast. That comes to eight tenths of one percent. Those votes are concentrated in just five states: Nevada, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. All five states were, prior to the election, labeled as “swing” states.
Using the COVID pandemic as the reason or the excuse – depending on one’s perspective – these states hurriedly adopted mail-in voting. They did so without having had the time to develop mechanisms and systems to mitigate fraud – which even the New York Times acknowledged is much more likely with mail-in ballots.
On Election Night, as the returns were looking favorable for Trump, the counting of votes was abruptly stopped in all five states. When counting resumed, it suddenly favored Joe Biden by huge margins – as much as 98 percent or better.
In Philadelphia, Republican watchers were kept at a sufficient distance from those doing the counting as to make it impossible to actually observe the ballots. The Republican Party obtained an emergency court order to stop this practice. The Philadelphia County attorney went full bureaucrat, promising to “review” the order. But the watchers’ access was never improved.
Also, in Philadelphia, a late-night dump of over 28,000 votes went 100 percent for Joe Biden – a statistical impossibility. (Saddam Hussein never got 100 percent of 28,000 votes.)
In that vein, at one point in the wee, small hours of the morning in Michigan, Joe Biden’s vote total advanced by 138,000 votes with ZERO change to Trump’s total. (That’s not statistically impossible. It’s just flat out impossible.)
There are other examples but space doesn’t permit.
Here’s the bottom line. I will be the first to say that it is unlikely that examination by the courts of the concerns raised by the Trump campaign will change the outcome of this election. But such an examination should happen anyway.
COVID, and the resulting hastily arranged mail-in voting procedures in states that everyone knew were going to be pivotal, introduced new dynamics into this election. Among those dynamics was the presence of ample opportunities for fraud. In the election’s aftermath, there is significant anecdotal evidence that fraud occurred.
Therefore, just as Al Gore was justified in standing his ground in November 2000, Donald Trump is justified in standing his ground in 2020.
All of the allegations of mishandling of votes, miscounting of votes and outright fraud should be thoroughly investigated. If we are to trust elections in the future, these concerns must be fully put to rest.
For his part, if Joe Biden truly wants to be, as he put it in his “victory” speech, “…a president who seeks not to divide but unify,” he should willingly cooperate. For if there truly was no wrongdoing – as Democrats insist there wasn’t – cooperating provides Biden with much to gain and little to lose.
We, my husband and I, totally agree! Please keep up the good work Mr. Gleiser. We appreciate your knowledge and common sense, and the willingness to say it like it is.
Excellent piece Mr. Gleiser.
As you pointed out, it is The Constitution of The United States that “calls” the election, NOT the leftist legacy media or their narrative nattering pundits and prognosticators who all too often speak in political unison.
This election is far from over or won by Biden. The Supreme Court, the Dept. of Justice, et. al., are all now involved with numerous federal court challenges to UNLAWFUL vote counting practices where Republican observers were denied access to oversee the process.
Voting by mail-in ballots are a Trojan horse of corruption to our free Constitutional Republic and should be disallowed. Voting in person with voter ID with signature matched to the voter registry roll is the only way to conduct and keep free and fair elections with absolute integrity.
When vote counting is stopped in the middle of the night, it make’s me wonder why? It’s a recipe for disaster as the unscrupulous can simply ask ‘how many votes do we need?’ to swing this thing in our* (*i.e. the democrats) direction? Very bad and as crooked as a corkscrew!
Still believe President Trump won this election and will be made known to all in the coming weeks after these serious matters of cheating and low blow tactics are vindicated by LAW and not of men.
Let’s try this yet again. In which ballot counting locations were republican observers not allowed in?
Read the piece — again. Republican observers were admitted to the counting room in Philadelphia. But they were kept at a distance that made it impossible for those observers to actually see the ballots.
Agreed, but I was attempting to reply to Richard.
Noted. However, affidavits are being are taken in regards to a number of abuses and claims various in nature in this 2020 election, the scope of which is just now beginning to come to light. The execution of legal documents is not instant and investigations do not happen in the blink of an eye. The wheels of justice turn slow but grind very fine.
Joe Biden’s handlers will fiercely oppose a transparent review of this election, even though Paul’s commentary explains why they should not. But they know the extent to which the “fix” was in, and that it would infuriate most Americans for it to be revealed. This was an “all hands on deck” conspiracy, which included the usual suspects, along with many other accomplices who operated below the surface. This was indeed the hill for which they all were willing to die. If the legal challenges fail, and this puppet is allowed to reverse all of the positive accomplishments of the Trump administration, it will be a huge victory for our enemies and a huge defeat for America. As Biden read from his script, “it will be a very dark winter”, but I submit not only due to the China virus, but from the rage of all those who discover that this was a fraudulent election. I can hear the pressure cooker beginning to reach the boiling point, and when it does, all of the Antifa and BLM “protests” will look like very tame Sunday school picnics! The “silent majority” of forgotten men and women will be forgotten, or silent, no more.
I sincerely hope you are advocating for peaceful protests rather than violent ones.
Similar to the ones that the Democrats, including Biden, supported? No, I do not think that the silent majority will be involved in the uncivilized behavior of thuggery and wanton destruction of property, as well as gleeful theft and arson that we witness in the Democrat controlled cities. Coincidentally, the same locations as the election theft is occurring. Do we see a pattern here?
Didn’t the Bush campaign sue to stop the recount? I’m not sure I would classify that as giving Gore 37 days to make his case.
Yes, he did. And his suit was denied. Just as any such suit by the Biden campaign should be similarly denied.
Thank you Paul. Election integrity is paramount to all of us in the country; especially with the two Senate seats yet to be decided. Which will definitely decide the fate of our nation. Chuck Schumer has already stated the “Fundamental Change” of America will begin if the Dems win. Again, thank you for all the well informed, well written articles you give us to discuss!
How is Biden “not cooperating?”
He has no standing in this process.
Trump goes to court, judges decide, right?
A true statesman would cooperate by waiting until all the vote counts, legal challenges, and certification of electors have been done. Biden is acting like a football coach who has just received a favorable but questionable call from the refs, and wants to hurry up to the line of scrimmage and snap the ball so a replay cannot be done.
Your 120,000 number just didn’t look right to me. When I added up those five states, I get a difference of about 265,000. I’m pretty sure michigan alone has biden leading by more than your number.
Paul, it might be useful to educate the Leftist anti-Trump radicals who support Biden on the list of “horrors” that the pro-Marxist Biden Campaign has published in their 110 page “manifesto” at the following link:
I’m sorry that I don’t have the time now to prepare a set of bullet points to easily expose the radical plans in this dangerous document. I will claim that cooperation with a nuclear Iran and “technology and business partnership” with Communist China and Muslim countries and OPEN border “third-world invasions” will devastate American prosperity, health care, religious Liberty, and Energy independence as we know it.
If this “manifesto” is followed and the eradication of our Constitutional Republic is accomplished by replacing the “Rule of Law” with the “Rule of Man” which is now underway given the illegal ballot harvesting in the current election, the country will forever fall under one-Party rule, dominated by Marxism and the tyranny that enforces iron-fisted obedience to the collective Communist dogma. The Rights of individuals and Associations will be eliminated to the extent that they would not be a threat to those in charge of “maintaining harmony” with the government powers that control our lives. Ultimately, we would become “managed” properties of the State to serve the State as it desired for the “common good.”
By planting hundreds of millions of unsolicited mail-out ballots, the Democrats have succeeded in producing a wealth of unverifiable mail-in ballots to be harvested that would eventually swamp the in-person legal (and absentee) votes being counted by the corrupt BIG DEMOCRAT controlled cities to guarantee a fake Democrat victory in ENOUGH of the battleground States in order to falsely claim victory. Of course, the Marxist media, academia, courts and deep state Democrat controlled political machines will paint these events as legal and normal with promises of a more Social Justice American – hence, the Union of Socialist States of America, USSA.
With NO Conservative voice that can change the ruling government, Freedom and Liberty will die and be replaced with government guaranteed SECURITY (replacing LIBERTY) since any opposition to this scheme would be hopeless. This has been the Marxist plan for 50 years and if they succeed, you can be sure that the Bill of Rights and the Constitution will have been effectively shredded. 2020 may be the year that the 1776 Declaration and the birth of the American dream will have been finally conquered. Just remember that half of our fellow Americans fell for this Evil Propaganda which finally stripped ALL of Americans of the Liberty and Freedom (Free Enterprise) that spawned the greatest and most successful Nation in the history of mankind. Sadly, America may become just another civilization which finally crumbled into the dust bin of tyrannical history: the NORMAL fate of all previous generations that worshiped Man instead of God.
I recommend reading this article that summarizes the “manifesto” in all its gory and debilitating plans at the following link:
Good job Mr. Solomon! WOW what a manifesto! Talk about growing government to a level suffocating every aspect of life. This is madness and unworkable in our society. Did you catch the part of starting an FDR esque “CCC” army of young people to go out and work on these Green New Deal projects. Or is this really the formation of the army of young people that will morph into the American SS? This is definitely throwing out the American baby with the bath water. Everyone needs to try and read this document.
If necessity requires it, the country must have another “George Washington” in order to save us from the conquering Marxist hordes that have infested our society. Patriotic defense of the Constitution as the “Supreme Law of the Land” regardless of the media and deep-state corruption that is trying to represent themselves as LEGAL must be DEFEATED if our Nation is to survive. President Trump may be the only one that can enforce the SUPREMACY of the Constitution to LEGALLY rescue our Republic. I don’t care how many Marxist saboteurs must be imprisoned for their obvious TREASON in order to put this rebellion down. President Trump as the “Chief Law Enforcement Officer in the Land” must not allow America to be defeated by this ILLEGAL activity to destroy the Constitution. May God guide and bless President Trump as we pray for our rescue from this existential threat.
In my further research into published reports regarding voting machine (so-called) software “errors”, I have located credible evidence of monumental proportions that are detailed in the following links. This information is so huge that if true will mark the greatest one-sided voter heist in our nation’s history and many will suffer serious legal consequences. At least one software company named DOMINION that is widely used across the nation that tracks and tabulates votes in this election has a “feature” to “normalize” vote totals according to an internal programmable algorithm as published by the manufacturer.
Dr. Shiva, MIT PhD, a pattern analysis and recognition expert, has revealed the results of his team’s mathematical analysis of four major county votes in Michigan in the Trump-Biden election. Dr. Shiva and his staff found evidence of Trump-to-Biden vote-switching of 138,000 VOTES in Michigan. Many other KEY counties in other battleground states are showing similar vote switching from Trump-to-Biden (seemingly always in the same direction). Nothing in the evidence indicates “random” errors. The evidence points to “programmed” errors (fraudulent manipulation) by way of the DOMINION software machines. Evidence is being researched to identify further VOTE SWITCHING in favor of the Democrats in down-ballot races as well.
One of the top attorneys in the nation, Sidney Powell, a member of President Trump’s legal team, alleged that Democrats had a widespread voter fraud operation on Election Day. Powell stated: “That’s where the fraud took place where they were flipping votes in the computer system or adding votes that did not exist.” She has targeted the DOMINION and other systems as being very suspect. The mathematical evidence of Dr. Shiva is in line with Powell’s allegation.
(Same video on YouTube while it exists)
The TRUE results of this election have NOT been established by any reliable set of FACTS. Media propaganda is worthless. Until WE know that the FRAUD has been identified and eliminated, the ACTUAL winners, based on OUR LEGITIMATE VOTE as a Nation, cannot take office, period.
Here is another MUST SEE video that is easy to understand that illustrates the incredible statistical anomalies of the voting patterns that point directly to election FRAUD. Steve Cortes is the author.
