... I would say it all began with Hillary Clinton and Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).

In 2016, Democrats were extremely confident that Hillary would demolish Trump in the presidential election. When she didn’t, the shock was huge, and many Democrats instantly lost their minds...

...  the Hillary campaign and the Democratic Party faced no criminal charges for the $1 million plus they gave to finance the dossier smears against Trump. They were merely fined by the FEC. Contrast that with Trump’s 34 felony convictions.

The deep state did its part by having the FBI spy on Trump campaign advisors Carter Page, George Papadopoulis, and Sam Clovis...

To ensure victory in 2020, Democrats began planning for massive ballot harvesting in the swing states. Hundreds of lawsuits were filed -- each designed to chip away at the election controls that had been enacted by the state legislatures. The goal was to facilitate ballot harvesting, and make it less detectible. The harvesting plans were turbocharged by COVID, which was the excuse for extensive mass mailing of ballots, and even more dismantling of election controls.

We have a pretty good estimate of the magnitude of this cheating, thanks to True the Vote, the organization behind the 2000 Mules movie. Here are some of their estimates:

Democrats worried that some of the phony ballots might be detected by means of signature matching (signatures on ballot envelopes are matched to those in registration records). To eliminate that problem, Michigan, Georgia, and Pennsylvania scrapped signature matching, although they did it in different ways.

  • In Michigan, the Secretary of State declared that employees were to “presume” signatures on ballot envelopes matched those in registration records. A few months after the 2020 election, a judge ruled that Secretary Jocelyn Benson acted illegally.
  • In Pennsylvanian, the state Supreme Court declared that a voter’s ballot could not be rejected simply because his signature didn’t match. The voter could sign as “Mickey Mouse.” It didn’t matter.
  • In Georgia, the largest county, Fulton, did not attempt to match signatures at all. Since the vast majority of Fulton voters are Democrats, the absence of signature matching in Fulton probably won the state for Biden...

To be certain of winning, Democrats in key counties took one more step: They prevented observation by Republican poll challengers...

... That brings us to the present day -- a sad one for Democrats. The lawfare has backfired spectacularly. People see through it, and many realize that the Democrats are the true threat to Democracy...
