It is well accepted by historians and biographers that Richard Nixon had ample ground for contesting the 1960 election results because of widespread vote fraud in Cook County, Illinois and several counties in Lyndon Johnson’s home state of Texas.

Nixon chose to not challenge the election–but not because of lack of evidence. He let it go because he feared it would tear the country apart. Well, that was then and this is now.

Barack Obama and his “transformative politics” have already torn the country apart. In 1960, turning the country over to John Kennedy was not selling America into socialist slavery and globalist cronyism. In 2016, the alternatives are starkly different.

Should anyone be surprised that Donald Trump will not allow Hillary Clinton’s army of fraudsters steal an election without a fight?

...The guarantee of a secret ballot is not found in the original US Constitution; it developed a century later as one answer to the practice of vote-buying.

The Pew Center just last week published a report claiming there are 1.8 million dead people on the voter rolls, and another credible report puts the total of dead people and ineligible voters at more than 4 million. The question that arises from such startling information is a simple one. If our super-smart election officials have allowed such problems to accumulate for decades without fixing them– while all the time opposing a photo ID requirement for voting —  why should citizens have confidence they can weed out all the bogus votes from the honest ones on election day?

There are other, more sophisticated forms of election fraud besides counting votes cast by dead people. One of the most insidious and morally repugnant is being used in 2016 by the Democratic party’s propaganda arm, the American mass media: vote suppression. The media are telling millions of Americans over and over, day in and day out, they need not bother to vote because Hillary Clinton has already won the election.

That is what Donald Trump means by a “rigged election.”...

Meanwhile, back in Chicago, some of the old tricks are still in fashion, like voting machines that count ballots a particular way. In 2014, some voters at the Schaumburg Public Library saw touch-screen voting machines that counted votes as Democrat even if you voted for a Republican candidate. The local election official attributed the problem to a “calibration error.” The funny thing is, there were no machines found that miscount votes the other direction.

Across the nation, literally tens of millions of ballots are already in the mail and will be returned by mail, with the only security tool being signature verification. That verification is by an election judge who is given an average of three seconds to compare the signature accompanying the ballot to the one in an electronic record.

In Billings, Montana, police are investigating reports of ballots being stolen from apartment mail boxes. In thousands of apartment buildings and nursing homes, millions of mailed ballots await pick-up by their owners– or by a  ballot harvester who will gladly vote the ballot or offer assistance in filling out the ballot and then delivering it to a polling place.

Is widespread vote fraud built into all-mail balloting?...

Of course, we may still have to deal with a few thousand pesky voting machines that seem to have a mind of their own.



Rigged Elections are as American as Apple Pie, by Jeff Crouere, Canada Free Press, October 22, 2016:

Approximately 24 million—one of every eight—voter registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate...

Prof. John Banzhaf: Yes, the Election Can Be Rigged, by Prof. John F. Banzhaf III, Breitbart, October 19, 2016.

Paul Craig Roberts Roars "Rigged Elections Are An American Tradition", Paul Craig Roberts, ZeroHedge, October 23, 2016:

... Stolen elections are the American tradition. Elections are stolen at every level—state, local, and federal. Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley’s theft of the Chicago and, thereby, Illinois vote for John F. Kennedy is legendary. The Republican US Supreme Court’s theft of the 2000 presidential election from Al Gore by preventing the Florida vote recount is another legendary example. The discrepancies between exit polls and the vote count of the secretly programmed electronic voting machines that have no paper trails are also legendary.

So what’s the big deal about Trump’s suspicion of election rigging?

The black civil rights movement has fought vote rigging for decades...

Don’t believe the polls that say Hillary won the Q&A sessions or the polls that say Hillary is ahead in the election. Pollsters work for political organizations. If pollsters produce unwelcome results, they don’t have any customers. The desired results are that Hillary wins.

The purpose of the rigged polls showing her to be ahead is to discourage Trump supporters from voting.

Don’t vote early. The purpose of early voting is to show the One Percent how the vote is shaping up. From this information, the oligarchs learn how to program the electronic machines in order to elect the candidate that they want.
