Time magazine has published a detailed account of what it describes as a “conspiracy” between “left-wing activists and business titans” to create “an extraordinary shadow effort” to “protect” the 2020 presidential election.

The New York Times had reported on the effort in January, referring to the “Democracy Defense Coalition.” The Daily Beast hinted at it in the fall. But the Time article is the most in-depth report at what others suggested was going on behind the scenes.

The article by Molly Ball, titled “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” presents the effort as a heroic effort to preserve a free and fair election, and to fend off President Donald Trump’s anticipated claims of fraud....

As Breitbart News reported at the time, there was a nationwide left-wing movement to unleash more unrest if Trump claimed victory in a close election. Ball’s reporting confirms that the “shadow” effort was coordinating such efforts. She adds that the “national mobilization network” was told to “stand down” after it appeared Biden would be the winner.

Later, she says, Podhorzer’s network decided to make sure there were few counter-demonstrators at the January 6 “Stop the Steal” demonstration in Washington, DC, ensuring that blame for what happened would be placed on Trump alone.

The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election, by Molly Ball, Time, February 4, 2021.

Hubris: Elites brazenly gloat they rigged election ... and that's good news for us, by Monica Showalter, American Thinker, February 6, 2021:

... But surprise, surprise, the cabal has come out of the closet in a shocking piece that ran in Time magazine titled: "The Secret Bipartisan History of the Shadow Campaign that Saved the 2020 Election," by Democrat-with-byline Molly Ball:...

"There was a conspiracy"? "Not rigging, but fortifying? Changed the rules? Did a campaign against misinformation, meaning, suppressed the New York Post story about Hunter Biden? “Every attempt to interfere with the proper outcome of the election was defeated”?

This is some creepy-ass gloating from leftists who have obviously won and would like us to know.

That's going to be their downfall, but right now, they don't know.

Ball's idea, of course, is to claim that big corporate, big tech and the rest of the co-conspirators who brought us doddering puppet Joe Biden were actually heroes.... because, after all, us peons can't help ourselves, we just keep voting for Trump. Being big-hearted and all, they saved us from ourselves. Which kind of sums up what Ball's story is about....

Two interpretations as to what it means are out -- one, that it means their Big Lie about all being free and fair in this election is falling flat and they're trying to spin it now

Bottom line in this argument is that they know everyone knows the rigging happened, so now the riggers are trying to spin it into a virtue.

The other is the one I suspect is perhaps even more likely: They know we know. So now they're into psy-ops trying to demoralize us in their open gloating. ...

Destroying Democracy in Order to Save It, by Sally Zelikovsky, American Thinker, February 9, 2021:

Time magazine’s “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign that Saved the 2020 Election” by Molly Ball is supposed to come off as an epic tale of left-wing institutions swooping in to save democracy from untold chaos in the aftermath of the election but reads more like a confessional where the storyteller and her informants unwittingly reveal that the election was indeed rigged....

Through extensive interviews and access to documents, Ball lays out in earnest the game plan with absolutely no awareness that this nonadmission of wrongdoing is actually an admission that bolsters what the President has been saying all along (and is vital to his defense against this second impeachment):

They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result.

The Nazis documented everything in the mistaken belief that their national obsession with world domination and cleansing the world of impure races was not only in Germany’s best interests, but those of the entire world. They honestly believed history would judge them kindly. But they were blind to the reality that, in recording their atrocities, they wrote the script for world condemnation of their crimes against humanity.

Similarly, in their sanctimonious fervor to boast about their role in “fortifying” the election and its aftermath, Ball’s informants actually outed themselves as the crooks, cabalists, and conspirators they really are. And poor Ms. Ball appears the useful idiot....

The Shadow Conspirators' Arrogance May Precede Their Destruction, by Dennis Jamison, Canada Free Press, February 11, 2021:

... The lengthy article (6,800+ words) says much about Ball, who just published a book on Nancy Pelosi, which says even more about the writer, but this article is likely a good start on her next book. Yet, once people read this chronicle, it is doubtful there will be much of an appetite for more ideological brainwashing. Especially, the Time piece should be read by people who love the United States to get an idea of just how twisted and inverted such people’s conception of justice in this nation has become. The truly frightening thing is that Ball and her various Leftist media employers may actually believe in the “cause” she claims to be fighting for. The Communists would likely call Ball a “useful idiot.”...

The article is essentially a timeline or roadmap of how people driven by hate convinced themselves that they were truly in the right because they have identified what they have deemed evil for all of the rest of us....

An important lesson to be learned for those Christians, conservatives, and patriots who read through this article, is that the definition of the foundation of the United States of America is totally different for people like Ball and all of the Leftist media moguls she has written for in her life....

Ball’s article is pure propaganda—intended to persuade readers that it was reasonable for the Marxist sympathizers and Communists to complete the coup that the Progressive lawmakers could not finish. They made everyone believe that Trump was the target. The real target, which may have been safely secured by the shadow government, was the United States of America. Trump has said that all along—that we were the real targets. ...

Time Magazine Gushingly Profiles The Successful ‘Conspiracy’ To Rig The 2020 Election, by Joy Pullmann, The Federalist, February 9, 2021:

... “In a way, Trump was right,” writes Time national political correspondent Molly Ball. “There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes.” She later describes this “conspiracy” as something that “sounds like a paranoid fever dream — a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.”...

The conspiracy’s “work touched every aspect of the election,” Ball writes. “They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time.”

This, she and the “dozens” of conspiracists she interviewed claim, is evidence of their efforts to “protect the election.” In fact, all of these tactics weaken election integrity....

One of the core problems with the 2020 election is that many states did not follow their voting laws...

These leftist lawyers were unquestionably the aggressors in this situation, as Hans van Spakovsky and others have documented, filing as many as four times the number of lawsuits Trump or Republicans filed....

Their “Protect the Results” coalition “had a map listing 400 planned postelection demonstrations, to be activated via text message as soon as Nov. 4. To stop the coup they feared, the left was ready to flood the streets.”...

So when they say they suspended election laws and threatened deadly violence to “protect democracy,” what all these people really mean is they worked to rig the election against Trump. They just think you are too stupid to put those two statements together. And they are apparently too narcissistic to hide their masterfully successful plotting....



The article is leftist code for stating that the 2020 election was rigged. As Gateway Pundit notes in the article Wow! TIME Magazine Admits in Great Detail How 2020 Election Was Rigged Against Trump by Secret Cabal of Wealthy and Politically Connected Elites:

And today TIME Magazine even admitted in a long and detailed screed by leftist Molly Ball that a secret cabal of wealthy and politically connected elites joined together to rig the election against Trump.

The Time article concludes with

Democracy won in the end. The will of the people prevailed. But it’s crazy, in retrospect, that this is what it took to put on an election in the United States of America.

America is not a democrary; it is a Constitutional Republic. The Republic itself lost the fradulent 2020 election to the ruling oligarchy.
