I’ve had a number of people, both on this blog and in “real life” tell me that in the end, Trump will be crowned as the victor of this election because of voter fraud. Let’s set the record straight…and you conspiracy theorists out there that want to make the case it ain’t gonna happen, please keep it to yourself. I’ve heard enough blather for one lifetime.
The odds of Donald Trump overturning the number of states he needs to overturn in order to win the election is infinitesimally small. Do you realize never in our country’s history have five states overturned election results? Do you realize courts have never taken so many votes off the board and changed the election results? And do you realize that all of the YouTubers out there that are screaming about how Sydney Powell is right, in the end it isn’t going to matter.
True, until the Electors from the Electoral College gather to vote on December 14th, there is no real presidential winner. And yes, there is a scintilla of hope that maybe just maybe that Donald Trump can pull off a quintilla of court wins (or a major Supreme Court win) that would overturn the election results. However, I wouldn’t bet a paper clip on that happening. In reality, you’re going to see that isn’t going to happen. Here’s why.
Trump’s legal team has lost 28 of the 29 lawsuits that have been filed so far. The most compelling reason for the losses? There hasn’t been any evidence given in court that Trump’s legal team is right. In fact, they’ve recently dropped a lawsuit in Pennsylvania claiming that 682,479 mail in ballots were illegal and shouldn’t have been counted. And unless Rudy Giuliani has been hiding something, or is waiting for appeals to the Supreme Court, it doesn’t look as if the legal challenges are going to amount to squat. Sydney Powell, who was at one point named by Trump in a tweet as a part of his legal team, apparently got bounced off of that squad when she swore that votes were being shipped to Venezuela to be counted.
Now, Powell still believes that she is in the right, and she still has evidence. But telling the world that isn’t the same thing as winning that argument in court. I would have thought we Americans learned that lesson listening to Adam Schiff over the past four years. After all, he had incontrovertible proof that Trump’s campaign colluded with the Russians. But when push came to shove and people were under oath, we found that to be nothing more than a “Schiff lie”. I’m not calling Powell or Giuliani liars, but they have yet to provide evidence in court. Otherwise, you would have seen different outcomes in the 28 times they’ve lost so far.
We are basically two weeks away from them having to convince somebody…anybody with authority to do anything about the election to change their minds, and change the election. Trump said this past week that if the Electoral College votes for Biden, he’d begrudgingly concede…though it was something he didn’t want to do. So, we have two more weeks of conspiracy theories and it will be over.
My point is (and always has been) clear. If there is proof, why haven’t they provided it in court? If they have, and it’s as damning as they say, why haven’t they won? The answers are clear. You can believe that this is the biggest coup d’etat in American history, or you can believe that Trump ran a campaign that was worse than the one he ran four years ago (which he did). I’ve already outlined why he should have lost, and no one has been able to refute any of the points made.
You can believe in conspiracy theories if you want, or you can believe in reality. And if you want to do that, you’re more than free to do that. You probably also believe that Roswell holds the bodies of aliens from outer space, or that the CIA killed John F. Kennedy. Reality says Joe Biden won, and yes, there was some fraud…but Joe Biden still would have won even if there wasn’t fraud. Time to wake up and realize reality is real. The rest is gossimer.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
