Morning Greatness: Our Election System Has Been Weaponized

Good Tuesday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president has no public events scheduled.


Two minutes of hate:

On Monday, a group of Republican lawmakers in Arizona held a hearing about voting “irregularities” in the 2020 election. A parade of witnesses told outrageous stories about being blocked from watching important counting processes, about back rooms where election activities were hidden, about obscenely reckless chain-of-custody behavior, about truckload of ballots being delivered to counting facilities and about improbable mathematical vote occurrences. It was truly a macabre spectacle for those believing our elections are free and fair.

The single most important feature of our elections is that, regardless of the victor, people respect and accept the results. This is why we have things like representative poll watchers and monitors, so all parties involved are confident the voting process was executed in a fair and accurate manner. When security elements are discarded or ignored it merely leaves the voters with suspicions. And conversely, if everyone involved in the election process has legitimacy as their goal, the election safeguards would be respected because more than winning a particular race is the faith participants place in the system. As you can see from this 2020 fiasco, a legitimate election is not the goal and not only is it not the goal, the Republicans have ceded the election integrity space–now operating at the apex of crooked efficiency–entirely over to the left.

The GOP leadership has bought into the lie that every single human being must be able to vote and every person must be able to vote as effortlessly as possible at the expense of election process’s security features. No voter identification, no signature verification, motor voter registration, sending ballots to every name on the cooked up voter rolls (where no name can ever be removed) using voting machines that compute rather than count, are all degrading election security and many of these features materialized with the consent of our “leadership.” What are the consequences for blocking Republican poll watchers and monitors from doing their job? Nothing. Nothing is the consequence. Don’t expect to see people punished or charged criminally for violating the law here.

I sincerely hope that tens of millions of people now realize our elections are corrupted and have been weaponized. “Voting” is just another tool in the left’s arsenal to gain power over their political adversaries. It’s hard to say what the remedy to this machine is, but it doesn’t seem like the ballot box is one of the options.
