What’s Wrong With Trump’s Investigating Election Fraud?

There's nothing that could make Biden more legitimate than a real close investigation, so why isn't pro-Biden media in favor of one?

For the life of me, I just don’t get the mainstream media’s vehement objections to President Trump’s desire to investigate whether Joe Biden ending up winning the election through fraud. Their argument, repeated from the very moment that Biden was declared the winner and ever since, is that Trump’s claims of fraud are “false” and “baseless.”

But secrecy is normally at the core of fraud. While there might be isolated cases where, say, a person is caught voting twice, it’s rare that massive fraud manifests itself immediately.  It usually takes an investigation to ferret it out.

Notice what happens if the logic of mainstream media, most of which was vehemently in favor of Biden’s election, holds sway. If there is massive, sophisticated fraud, it is never discovered because there is never an investigation to determine whether there was fraud. The reason there is no investigation is because there is no evidence of fraud immediately after the election. But the only way to discover the existence of electoral fraud is to conduct an investigation, which isn’t conducted because there is no evidence of fraud immediately after the election.

Let’s assume, for example, that there was election software that corrupt officials were able to use to manufacture whatever number of votes Biden needed to win. How could anyone be expected to ferret out that fraud immediately after the election? One would need an investigation to discover fraud on that sophisticated level. But the mainstream media’s argument is that there should be no investigation because there is no immediate evidence of the fraud. Thus, if the mainstream media’s argument is accepted, the fraud succeeds because there is never an investigation into the matter.

The mainstream media asserts that there is nothing unusual about the massive number of votes that poured in for Biden after the election. But the fact is that it was unusual. Nothing like that has ever happened in U.S. presidential election history.

Democrat Lyndon Johnson’s 1948 U.S. Senate campaign in Texas, which I wrote about the day before the Trump-Biden election, is instructive. Johnson won that election by 87 votes out of almost a million votes cast.

Johnson’s position was the same as that of the mainstream media today. Immediately after the election, he was asserting that there was no evidence of fraud. But as I indicated above, oftentimes election fraud is hard to ferret it. It takes an investigation to do so.

Even with an investigation, Johnson’s opponent, Gov. Coke Stevenson, was unable to prevail in his election contest. Does that mean there was no fraud? No, it doesn’t. In fact, many years later, after Johnson had served as John Kennedy’s vice president and then as president, his electoral fraud rose to the surface.

It turned out that Johnson had told a South Texas crony named George Parr to keep his poll tabulations open after the election, just in case Johnson needed more votes to win. Several days after the election, when Johnson was losing, Parr delivered 200 votes to him, which gave Johnson the win.

This New York Times article, which is worth reading, details Johnson’s election fraud, which became known as the “Box 13” scandal (Google “Box 13 scandal.”) In 1977, after Johnson and Parr were dead, an election judge in charge of Jim Well County’s Box 13, Luis Salas, came forward and confessed that he was part of the fraud. He said that Johnson told Parr that he needed 200 more votes to win the election. Parr instructed Salas to produce the additional 200 votes, which Salas did. The last 200 signatures on the election tally were all in the same ink, which was different from the ink of the other signatures, the signatures were in the same handwriting, and the names were in alphabetical order.

Johnson went on to become U.S. Senator. If he had lost the race, there is no chance he would have become president in November 1963. 

It’s certainly possible that Joe Biden’s election is legitimate. But it’s also possible that it’s not. What’s wrong with Trump investigating it now rather than have the fraud surface 30 years from now, as it did in the case of Lyndon Johnson? Surely, the mainstream media wouldn’t want another illegitimate Democrat president, would it?

Why does Biden oppose Trump’s fraud investigations?

Because they are demonstrably part of Trump’s effort to delay certification of electors in “close” states that have GOP Legislatures in order to overturn the election..

The Federal deadline for Elector certification is Dec 8. Several of the contested States have earlier deadlines in the 3rd or 4th week of November. If Trump’s “election fraud” court cases are still unsettled in a particular State by the deadline(s), it’s Legislature might be tempted to step in and appoint Electors. It’s not clear whether the Legislature has to follow the People’s vote. For instance, the Legislature could appoint electors for Trump even if the popular vote appears to be in Biden’s favor.

Trump is a lawsuit gamer from way back.

All he has to do is get a barely plausible case before the Supreme Court, and GOP politics will take over, as they did on 2000.

That’s what Amy ‘Handmaiden” Barrett is for.

Sp yes, Biden, and everyone who supports democracy, should oppose Trump’s lawsuits, which have proven to be cynical and frivolous attempt at gaming his way around the will of the People.

Finally, Trump has appointed cronies top Pentagon positions; which is unprecedented in a lame duck Presidency and us consistent with preparations for a coup against the Constitution ans the democratic will of the People.

Perfectly fits meaning of Catch 22.

Trump most probably never had covid 19. It was his way to tip – fraud – the election. Why because he said to anyone and everyone don’t worry about the virus its nothing. Who would be worried about standing with crowds in queue’s to vote. At the same time run a mail in voting scam to knock out mail in votes. Guts dropped out of it when mail in votes were allowed.

fraud is a quite natural, integral part of US politics. Whoever is best at it, wins. Why is Trump making a fuss about it?

Rebuild with Biden….

JHC;;; Him and BJ Clinton is the party that tore it down with NAFTA and other trade acts. 61 Senators including Biden screwed you there. There went the jobs,,, of course the crime duo said we could learn to code.

Then BJC with help of Senator Biden eliminated Glass-Steagle. 90 Senators voted to screw you there. There went responsible banking and has resulted in the banking crises we see today.

Biden introduced the Comprehensive Forfeiture Act (aka Asset Forfeiture) allowing government thugs and thugettes to seize assets from private citizens when they committed no crime. Today they steal more than old school thieves.

Americans have a memory shorter than a gnat. They voted for this creep and his co-creep. Who knows what they’ll destroy next with their lockdowns and fake virus.

But those that voted for slimeball 1 and slimeball 2 and their party deserve what will come their way.

A WHOLE LOT of other things contributed to the great decline but, yeah, this will accelerate it and possibly induce collapse.
