Did Biden Just Pressure Us to Accept Fraudulent Midterm Results? Does He Know Something We Don’t?
By Selwyn Duke
It is said that “justice delayed is justice denied.” But is it also true that election results delayed are election results denied?
I’ve recently been invited to do some radio interviews on the topic “What Will Win Out in Midterms: ‘Hidden’ GOP Voters, or Democratic Vote Fraud?” The interest in the matter is great because concern about electoral manipulation is real — and now Joe Biden just might’ve given people even more reason to worry.
In fact, Biden might have just tried to set the stage for the acceptance of fraudulent midterm election results.
This point was made, implicitly, by Fox News host Tucker Carlson Wednesday evening. At issue were comments Biden delivered during his Union Station speech earlier that day.
Now, “extreme MAGA Republicans aim to question not only the legitimacy of past elections, but elections being held now and into the future,” Biden could be heard saying in one Carlson clip. “The extreme MAGA element of the Republican Party … [is] trying to succeed where they failed in 2020: suppress the right of voters and subvert the electoral system itself.”
Biden didn’t say, however, whether he now considers Hillary Clinton an “extreme MAGA Republican.” After all, she herself recently questioned the “legitimacy” of elections “into the future,” claiming the GOP was going to try to steal the 2024 contest. And, of course, from Al Gore in 2000 to the Trump/Russia-collusion hoax to Stacey Abrams in Georgia, examples of Democrats questioning past elections are legion.
As for Carlson, he remarked that this is “very weird, if you think about it. Here we are less than a week before the Democratic Party is expected to suffer overwhelming losses in the midterm elections, and you have the leader of that party, Joe Biden, commanding you not to complain about the election results. Why is that?”
The commentator has a theory. “Well, let’s see,” he continued. Joe Biden tells “you that thanks to the changes, the many changes, Democrats have made to our system of voting, all of which make voter fraud easier to commit, we may not know the results of the elections for a few days.”
“But don’t be alarmed,” Carlson then stated sarcastically. “Everything is completely on the level. And whatever you do, do not ask questions — or else you’re a criminal.” Here’s what Biden said:
We know that more and more ballots are cast in early voting or by mail in America. We know that many states don’t start counting those ballots till after the polls close on Nov. 8.
That means in some cases we won’t know the winner of the election … until a few days after the election. It takes time to count all legitimate ballots in a legal and orderly manner. It’s always been important for citizens in the democracy to be informed and engaged. Now it’s important for a citizen to be patient as well. That’s how this is supposed to work.
Actually, how it’s “supposed to work” is how it used to work: Virtually everyone votes on Election Day — that’s why it’s called “Election Day” and not Election Month or Election Season — and the result are known Election Day night.
Note here that almost all votes in our elections are counted by machine. So what’s the excuse for not providing timely results?
Returning to Carlson, he continued registering suspicion, saying:
What is going on here? We’re a week from the election, six days. Biden could have given, would under normal circumstances would have given a speech about his policies, how they’ve made your life better…. He could have, in other words, made a pitch for your vote based on what he has done. That’s what politicians do in functioning democracies…. That’s not at all what Joe Biden just did. Instead, Biden commanded you to accept the election results, whenever they arrive, no matter what they may be. It was bizarre, and it did not inspire confidence.
You would hate to think that what’s happening here is a version of what’s happening tonight in Brazil. According to official tallies, a convicted criminal … beat the incumbent president … by a narrow margin this weekend, and yet millions of Brazilians, millions, don’t believe that’s what actually happened…. There are protests all over Brazil right now .
Carlson is correct: In what’s perhaps unprecedented in American political history, a major party, the Democrats, is making no effort whatsoever to win our votes with a positive platform. They present no ideas, no solutions. They instead just engage in personal attacks, calling their opponents “extremists,” “fascists,” and “threats to democracy” (read: threats to the Democratic Party).
So something could occur to one, especially with the Democrats having recently lost many Hispanics and suburban women and some blacks, groups whose overwhelming support would normally propel them to victory: Have they given up on trying to win your vote because they know they can just steal it?
The Democrats have honed their vote-fraud machine, too. The Heritage Foundation lists nine different types of electoral fraud here.
Then there’s what, along with months of early voting, facilitates the fraud: long and late counting.
Consider: Imagine an auto mechanic told you that a repair job — let’s say, replacing your clutch — you knew was normally performed quickly and routinely “was very complicated and may take a few days.” Imagine he also said he couldn’t be sure of the estimate, but if you complain about the outcome when all is said and done, you’re a bad person. Wouldn’t you find another mechanic, and fast?
Stalling for time is a well-known con-artist strategy and a big red flag. And in our elections’ case, it’s not that it gives the vote counters time to get things right. It’s that it gives them time to make things very, very wrong.
