The New York Times spent most of the Trump term lying about “Trump-Russia collusion.” Now the paper is insisting that we ignore blatant truths about the 2020 election, particularly in Pennsylvania.More
Move along. Nothing to see here. That, in essence, is the message of The New York Times in a lengthy front-page story headlined this way:
77 Days: Trump’s Campaign to Subvert the Election
Hours after the United States voted, the president declared the election a fraud — a lie that unleashed a movement that would shatter democratic norms and upend the peaceful transfer of power.
Stunningly the piece makes only passing reference to the circus that was the election in Pennsylvania, blithely and completely ignoring the state’s vivid history of voter fraud – even when the paper itself had once reported on it. Ignored now completely, for example, was this story in…yes….the February 19, 1994 edition of….The New York Times. The headline:
Vote-Fraud Ruling Shifts Pennsylvania Senate
The Times reported the story this way, bold print for emphasis supplied:
“Saying Philadelphia’s election system had collapsed under “a massive scheme” by Democrats to steal a State Senate election in November, a Federal judge today took the rare step of invalidating the vote and ordered the seat filled by the Republican candidate.
In making such a sweeping move, the judge, Clarence C. Newcomer of Federal District Court here, did for the Republicans what the election had not: enable them to regain control of the State Senate, which they lost two years ago.
Judge Newcomer ruled that the Democratic campaign of William G. Stinson had stolen the election from Bruce S. Marks in North Philadelphia’s Second Senatorial District through an elaborate fraud in which hundreds of residents were encouraged to vote by absentee ballot even though they had no legal reason — like a physical disability or a scheduled trip outside the city — to do so.
In many instances, according to Republicans who testified during a four-day civil trial last week, Democratic campaign workers forged absentee ballots. On many of the ballots, they used the names of people who were living in Puerto Rico or serving time in prison, and in one case, the voter had been dead for some time.”
Got that? The New York Times itself once took detailed notice that a Pennsylvania election had been stolen in a “massive scheme” of “elaborate fraud” by Democrats.
In fact, Pennsylvania has a very, very long record of voter fraud. Which The Times ignored in their long, theoretically investigative piece. Not mentioned as well in that Times election subversion piece was this news from 2020 about Pennsylvania election subversion. The headline from The Philadelphia Inquirer:
South Philly judge of elections admits he took bribes to stuff the ballot box for Democratic candidates
The story began:
“A former judge of elections and Democratic committeeperson from South Philadelphia has pleaded guilty to accepting thousands of dollars in bribes to inflate the vote totals for three Democratic candidates for Common Pleas Court judge in 2015, and for other Democratic candidates for office in 2014 and 2016, U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain announced Thursday.
Domenick J. DeMuro, 73, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to deprive Philadelphia voters of their civil rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for the judicial candidates and for other candidates seeking office in the 2014 and 2016 primary elections. And he admitted violating the Travel Act, which forbids the use of a cell phone to promote illegal activity, McSwain’s office said.
DeMuro, who could not be reached for comment, was paid between $300 and $5,000 for each election, the office said.”
Then there was this related story two months later, with this headline in The Inquirer:
A former Pa. congressman caught in 1970s Abscam sting has been indicted again — this time for election fraud
This gem of a story began:
“A former Pennsylvania congressman convicted in the 1970s Abscam investigation was charged Thursday as a result of new allegations that he bribed a poll worker to stuff ballot boxes in local elections.
Federal prosecutors said former U.S. Rep. Michael “Ozzie” Myers, now working as a campaign consultant, paid a South Philadelphia judge of elections to fraudulently add votes for candidates who had hired him for their races from 2014 to 2016.”
And just where in that New York Times story on alleged Trump election subversion was any mention of these two stories? There was none.
One would think that the election record of a state with a very long record of voter fraud that literally goes back centuries – and can be documented – would be news in a New York Times story about election subversion. One would think The Times would be curious about, say, the late Pennsylvania U.S.Senator Arlen Specter’s description in his memoirs that “tampering with voting machines, (is) a standard Philadelphia ploy.”
But obviously, all news is not fit to print in The New York Times, particularly if it undermines the false storyline that President Trump was trying to subvert an election.
Let’s cut to the chase.
The New York Times spent most of the Trump term lying about “Trump-Russia collusion.” Now the paper is insisting that we ignore blatant truths about the 2020 election, particularly in Pennsylvania.
Which is to say, The New York Times is trying to subvert the truth – again.
We are barely past the 2020 election and already Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer are plotting to steal the 2024 election.
And they have no problem admitting it.
Here is Pelosi, her appearance on 60 Minutes written up by The Washington Examiner, bold print for emphasis supplied:
“In a 60 Minutes interview on Sunday, Lesley Stahl asked Pelosi a question by raising the prospect that ‘after all of this, there’s no punishment, no consequence, and he could run again for president.’
Pelosi acknowledged the possibility, saying, ‘And that’s one of the motivations that people have for advocating for impeachment.’”
And here is Schumer, as headlined in The Washington Examiner:
Schumer: Trump must be blocked from running for president again
The Schumer story says this:
“Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the Senate must convict President Trump of an impeachment charge in order to bar him using the prospect of a 2024 campaign to “poison the public arena” for the new Democratic White House and Congress.
‘After what he has done, the consequences of which we were all witness to, Donald Trump should not be eligible to run for office ever again,’ the New York Democrat said Tuesday.
Schumer made clear during his floor speech Tuesday that the goal of an impeachment trial is to stop Trump from seeking office in 2024.”
In an appearance on Mark Levin’s Fox show Life, Liberty and Levin, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley effectively answered Schumer by saying this, as reported over at Newsmax:
“Democrats are seizing the Republicans’ Electoral College objections and the storming of the Capitol, using the ‘lie’ to grab ‘power,’ according to Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., on Sunday.
…Democrats are twisting the reasonable concerns of election fraud and the constitutional objection of the Electoral College certification, he continued.
‘What the liberals have said is, ‘Because you did that, you effectively incited violence [Jan. 6],’ Hawley told host Mark Levin. ‘That’s a lie. They know it’s a lie. They said, ‘He wanted to overturn the election.’ That’s a lie. They know that it’s a lie.’
‘They said that you know, ‘It’s equivalent to a violent insurrection, the objection you raised.’ That’s a lie. They know that it’s a lie.’
‘I think what we’re seeing now is an attempt by the left to lie about our motivations, to lie about our actions in order to grab power.’”
Hawley has it exactly right.
Pelosi and Schumer are pushing the stark, deliberate lie that the former President, Hawley and Senator Ted Cruz incited the Capitol riot. And they are using that lie in an attempt to steal the 2024 election by denying the American people their right to vote for the candidate of their choice. Which is to say, denying Trump his constitutional right to run again if he so chooses.
This is, as Senator Hawley has said, nothing but a blatant power grab. An attempt to stay in power in perpetuity by rigging an election so that a popular candidate is denied his right to run for president if he so chooses.
The real question here should be when will the House and Senate censure Pelosi and Schumer for their bold attempt to steal an election by rigging it – not to mention doing it a full three years before the election has even begun.
After protesters forced entry into the United States Capitol on Wednesday, Democratic D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser gave a scathing public speech. Condemning the protesters, she said they would be held accountable. Bowser also noted that she had asked for reinforcement from law enforcement agencies including police from both Virginia and Maryland.
First off, asking for law enforcement assistance is a far cry from what we have heard from Democrats over the last year who are usually expressing disdain and calling for defunding the police. Not this time. Turns out, even Democrats turn to police when wanting to protect their own agendas.
But Bowser’s hypocrisy is just one level of her deception. People around the world are asking “how could security have been so subpar as to allow a breach of the U.S. Capitol?” Here is at least one answer for you: Bowser actually rejected assistance before the riots took place.
While Bowser is crying, “what happened yesterday is textbook terrorism” it turns out “on Tuesday, Bowser preemptively rebuffed federal reinforcements in a public letter to the Department of Justice, explaining that ‘the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is prepared for this week’s First Amendment activities” reported National Review.
Bowser actively went out of her way, writing a public letter, which explains the lack of backup. Nonetheless, the facts are not stopping liberals and anti-Trumpers from turning the catastrophe into a racial issue stating the incident occurred because it was “white supremacists helping white supremacists.” Bowser, a Black female, said the MPD was “prepared.”
Again, on Tuesday, long before the demonstration began, Bowser wrote: “The protection of persons and property is our utmost concern and responsibility. MPD is well trained and prepared to lead the law enforcement, coordination and response.” The letter was addressed to Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy and active Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller.
For those who are still unconvinced at the Mayor’s participation in the security failure, look at her tweet from January 5 alongside her letter: “To be clear, the District of Columbia is not requesting other federal law enforcement personnel and discourages any additional deployment without immediate notification to, and consultation with, MPD if such plans are underway.”
Fast forward less than 48 hours and the Mayor sings a different tune, saying she did not have jurisdiction to send police or National Guard to Capitol Hill. “I think a more robust presence on the ground” would have maintained order, she explained.
A Pennsylvania state official revealed this week it is still uncertain how many people voted in the November elections. One of the most lucrative battleground states which have heeded multiple lawsuits and voter fraud accusations, we appear to be no closer to definitive answers.
Just the News reports, “Pennsylvania was thrown back into the limelight this week when a group of Republican state representatives claimed to have found ‘troubling discrepancies between the numbers of total votes counted and total number of voters who voted’ in the state last month.”
A press release announcing the findings stated, “a comparison of official county election results to the total number of voters who voted on November 3, 2020, as recorded by the Department of State shows that 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast.”
However, “DoS/SURE system records indicate that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted” added the release. The SURE system stand’s for Pennsylvania’s Statewide Uniform Registry of Electors, the state’s registration database, which is run by the state’s Bureau of Election Security and Technology, administered by the Department of State.
Pennsylvania’s State Department disputed the representatives’ allegations of mismatched vote totals according to spokeswoman Wanda Murren. Oddly, Murren stated to Just the News, “at this time…there are still a few counties that have not completed uploading their vote histories to the SURE system. These counties, which include Philadelphia, Allegheny, Butler and Cambria, would account for a significant number of voters.”
When asked to clarify how the Department could certify the election without knowing the total number of voters, Murren replied: “Each county certifies the vote totals for each individual candidate. The secretary’s certification is based on the certifications from each county. In Pennsylvania, it is the counties that are authorized to administer all aspects of elections – from voter registration to canvassing the ballots.”
With answers and “clarification” like Murren’s, no wonder we are all left clueless.
As we head into the new year, it’s almost comical to look back at the left-wing media coverage in 2020. Jeffrey Lord appeared on The Ingraham Angle to review the worst offenders in the media over the past year.
“I think there is a serious rot that has come to underlie the national, liberal media, mainstream media. All of their standards are just gone with the wind. They’re open partisans and this, in a way, maybe one of President Trump’s biggest services is to out them,” he said.
“Decades ago, there were stories in the Kennedy days, of all days, I’ve gone back and read my history of reporters cheering for John F. Kennedy in the 1960 election and saying they all felt they were soldiers on the way to the new frontier with JFK,” he added.
“The only difference now is, it’s out there. Everybody sees it. The president has helped out them. There is a real rot there and I think they’ve got to do some serious soul searching about this. Not that that’ll happen.”
Perhaps one of the worst media offenses of 2020 was when the liberal media honored a top terrorist just because Trump killed him.
“Let’s just remember when the media thought it was a good thing when the president was Barack Obama and he took out Osama bin Laden and frankly, good for him. They all cheered him on,” Lord said.
“This is just so blatant at this point. If Donald Trump does something, it’s bad. If anybody else does something it’s good and it’s shameful and it, frankly, is damaging their own reputation,” he continued.
Another was when the media failed to admit the George Floyd protests throughout the summer were anything but peaceful.
“What’s always interesting to me is, they don’t care that you can see it,” Lord said. “It’s right there. It’s happening right in front of your own eyes, and yet they’re going to try and tell you that up is down and down is up, and the American people just no longer believe it. They no longer have credibility and seriously, that’s a big problem in the democratic society.”
The media even pushed the narrative that USPS was going to rig the election in Trump’s favor.
“They get to say anything they want and they’re never going to be held to account for it,” Lord urged. “Frankly, Lisa, that’s why conservative media – Rush Limbaugh, Laura, Sean, etc. – came to be, precisely because of this and that’s why they have an audience.”
It is no secret that the liberal media made the Hunter Biden story disappear. They refused to cover anything that would put their president-elect, Joe Biden, in a bad light. Lord warned that the media is playing games with our national security.
“Part of that Hunter Biden story was they want to ignore any and all ties of the Biden’s to China. This is going to have a serious impact if, in fact, Joe Biden takes the oath of office as president. What is going to be our China policy? What is our relationship here? They’re going to play hide the ball on this. This is not acceptable. This is the left-wing media machine playing hide and seek with national security. It’s not good.”
During the 2020 election, the media threw Biden softball after softball – asking easy, pre-selected questions.
“My favorite was, ‘do you like vanilla or chocolate ice cream?’ I’m not making that up. I mean, God Bless Peter Doocy from Fox out there trying to ask serious questions and they don’t want to do it,” he said.
“We’re going to be going through this for the next four years and the media itself is going to have to be held to account. As I say, there is a serious rot underlying the media when it acts like this and it’s not good,” he warned.
