When Election Day became Election Month

“I won’t be analyzing this election too, because I already know how it’s done. I’ve seen how the sausage is made. And I know there were no real election integrity reforms between 2020 and 2022 except in Florida” — Dan Gelernter thinks This Wasn’t an Election.

“this is all up to you now. I can’t pretend that Pennsylvania actually preferred a severely disabled stroke victim to a Trump-endorsed candidate. I can’t pretend that, while incumbent presidents lose seats in the midterms, Biden is so much more popular than Obama was that he escaped a similar “shellacking.” I can’t pretend that abortion was a bigger issue for the young voters than taxes, lost jobs, inflation and war. I can’t pretend this election wasn’t stolen. But you can.

A core issue is When Election Day Lasts For A Month – Issues & Insights. — “Hard to believe that many of us grew up going to bed on election night knowing not only who won the presidential election, but who came out on top of many other races, as well. But that’s changed.” — J.B. Shurk calls it America’s Great Political Unraveling. — “What’s worse—how much of a joke America’s “elections” are or the contempt with which election officials treat voters who have the nerve to demand answers on election night?” … “How does a good American citizen work within that kind of naturally corrupt system?” — Jay Valentine describes one approach in How Wisconsin Streetfighters Disrupted a Democrat Ballot-Gathering System. — “Let us all how remember anonymous electoral streetfighters, with few resources, showed how even a little gravel tossed into the Democrats’ ballot-gathering apparatus can disrupt a frictionless system in place for 30 years.” — Nick Arama gets a big picture About the GOP Winning That Popular Vote in the House Races – RedState. — “how to explain all the polls indicating things were breaking for the Republicans, that independents were breaking for Republicans as well? Were they all wrong?” … “So that might be the way to reconcile some of the polls: inefficient vote distribution, the red areas got redder and Republicans picked up black and Latino votes, but in areas that didn’t flip races. – But some of the other things don’t make sense to me.”

What Trump labeled as sanctimonious that got the usual suspects panties in a wad was noticed by David Solway who asks DeSantis 2024? Think Again. — “It should be clear by this time that popularity has nothing to do with electability.” … “this would be the time to rally the troops and to work indefatigably, as I argued previously, toward cleaning up the Augean Stables that are now the condition of American politics.”

Trump filled rally after rally in state after state with countless, full-house, full-stadium crowds, and such numbers do not lie. There really was a red wave in the midterms, but it was macro-engineered to a trickle, as should have been expected. The scam of  “malfunctioning” voting machines, the shortage of paper ballots, the tsunami of mail-in and late ballots, the temporary closing and slow-downs of polling stations, and so on would have been sufficient to determine an electoral result. 2020 was an early run for 2022, which in turn should be regarded as a template for 2024. I am absolutely sure that the Dems are now, even as we speak, preparing favorable ground for the next presidential election. As Stalin is reputed to have said, “It’s not the people who vote that count, it’s the people who count the votes.” To make Trump responsible for Democrat malfeasance is wholly misguided.

Both climate and pandemics provide examples of intellectual corruption today as well. Viv Forbes explains why Why green energy is not green at all and John Hughes says 2022 Ivermectin Research Study Shows Modern Medical Research Can Be Propaganda, Not Science. — “Medical research is supposed to be non-biased and professional to insulate legitimate scientific inquiry from personal and financial interests.” [so is climatology] — “Ivermectin may be effective.  It may not.  The problem is that it was vilified before any scientific data could objectively and sufficiently weigh its merit.” … “The major danger is that this tactic will be repeated in the next pandemic and doctors will again be told to prescribe nothing until an expensive designer drug from the company that has provided more ad revenue to TV than any other company saves the day.”

“Just a few short year ago, protocols executed by openly biased and unprofessional doctors would have likely been dismissed as invalid due to egregious researcher bias and financial conflict of interest.  The simultaneous rise of online censorship with unprecedented influence of pharmaceutical corporations has created a new era of medicine and medical research.  It will be good for drug profits and politicians leveraging medical crises for power.  It will not be good for American patients. 

Weaponized is the term being bandied about. Outcomes are pre-determined and anything goes when it comes to rationalizing the need and the means to achieve that outcome.
