The Tailspin of the Q movement. . .

The Anons are fond of following ‘White Rabbits’ with the prompting of ‘Q.’

Why write about ‘Q’ now? Trump is no longer in office, (or so it seems.) It would seem the hopes of ‘Q’ have passed by the wayside, and even ‘Q’ became radio silent since December 2020. Nevertheless the number of mainstream Republicans and Trump supporters that have been flocking to podcasts and blogs administered by the followers of ‘Q’ in January 2021 has been off the charts.

‘Q’ claimed to be a high-level government employee presumably with a military-intelligence background, and ostensibly holding Q clearance, and access to Top Secret–level information about Donald Trump, the Democrats, and the hidden behind-the-scenes intrigue and machinations of the U.S. government, and the national intelligence community. ZeroHedge aptly describes the ‘Q’ phenomenon as encompassing: “messages posted by an anonymous individual (or individuals) to image board ‘8kun’ promoting the theory that President Trump is part of a military intelligence operation by ‘white hat’ insiders to take down the deep state – arresting and prosecuting corrupt government officials and pedophiles. . .” Donald John Trump thus emerges as a protagonist hero in the world of ‘Q.’ “More than 3,000 messages later, Q has created a disturbing, multi-faceted portrait of a global crime syndicate that operates with impunity,” notes The American Thinker. “Q’s followers in the QAnon community faithfully analyze every detail of Q’s drops. . .” Q’s posts were eventually chronicled as they gained notoriety, and extracted from the Deep Web, and republished on the surface Web, manifesting more that 4,953 chronicled posts to date in archives, such as QPosts.online.

‘Q’ (and the myriad podcast personalities around him) spawned millions of fans that sport ‘Q’ t-shirts, ‘Q’ flags, ‘Q’ books, and myriad ‘Q’-related memes and motifs!

A portmanteau motif of the Presidential seal representative of Donald John Trump and the Letter ‘Q’ representing the ‘Q’ movement.

‘Q’ has postulated his own eschatology (i.e., doctrine of final things) in almost religious terms, preaching an inevitable ‘storm’ (i.e., ‘The storm is coming,’ which speaks of a future event when criminal conspirators and Deep State elements are arrested, then removed from power, and apt to face military tribunals.) ‘Q’ has a political philosophy wrought with determinism like the Marxist ideologue, but unlike the Marxism, an admirable free and prosperous society of individual liberty is the destination marker. Q repeatedly said ‘Trust the plan!’ and the euphemism emerged so that the ‘Anons’ would cheerfully invoke it! In Nov. 2020, Q stated:

Shall we play a game?
[N]othing [C]an [S]top [W]hat [I]s [C]oming

More coming?
Why is this relevant?
How do you ‘show’ the public the truth?
How do you ‘safeguard’ US elections post-POTUS?
How do you ‘remove’ foreign interference and corruption and install US-owned voter ID law(s) and other safeguards?
It had to be this way.
Sometimes you must walk through the darkness before you see the light.

Q Drop, 4,951. 12-Nov-2020

The ‘hope’ that ‘Q’ fed his followers became a potent political narcotic. As so many on the political Right, probably as much as two to three million held their hopes up on the claims of ‘Q,’ it warrants a reassessment in light of the inauguration of Joe Biden and Democrats claiming both houses of Congress.

The seductive allure of videos by ‘Q’ followers espouses selective truth in its persuasive propaganda, such as how the pandemic became the backdrop from the suspect mail-in voting system.

One can believe systemic election fraud was a reality in 2020 presidential election as I do, and these claims are not always mutually exclusive with the adherents of ‘Q,’ so I do not want to be misunderstood nor misrepresented. It is to be admitted many if not most ‘Q’ followers generally believe that the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent, but also that the military-intel community was running a sting operation in order to catch the culprits in the act, and document the forensics of the ‘election steal.’

I even grant ‘Q’ espouses modicums of truth at times, such as inferring Trump Republicans in general stand for bringing about justice, guarding the interests of the common man, reform of government, and upholding our liberties, which stands in marked contrast to the collectivist socialistic, globalist Democrats who deal in identity politics poison, race-baiting, and hypocritical advocacy of violent paramilitary activity.

While ‘Q’ has became quiet, an array of vocal commentators have emerged that have embraced either ‘Q’ and/or his ideas. These include: Dave of the X 22 Report; British-born Simon Parkes who has a history of outlandish claims about extraterrestrials; Robert D. Steele, an ex-CIA officer, an activist for intelligence reform, and an advocate of open-source intelligence; Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney, a retired U.S. Air Force officer and past Fox News commentator; Martin Geddes, a British IT expert; and Steve Pieczenik, a Nixon-era diplomat and intelligence official, and a ghostwriter for Tom Clancy who has appeared on Alex Jones Show. One of the earlier patrons of ‘Q’ included Jerome Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D., and a prolific book writer who covers unusual and conspiratorial themes such as the abiogenic origins of petroleum. The cynic is tempted to say these guys are all being controversy magnets, and are looking for a quick buck from book and merchandise sales, or simply attention-seeking and notoriety.

Not wishing to divulge too much information, supposedly to avoid potential exposure, ‘Q’ drip fed his followers ‘breadcrumbs’ of pertinent information. The fact of these leaks seems to have escaped the Anon followers that crackable clues and data could compromise Q’s identity or more importantly the overall game-plan. But the Anons followers seem bereft of this logic and reasoning. The ‘Q’ predictions have been wrought with falsehood, a lack of prescience, and even proved comically ironic as actual events transpired. ‘Q’ said to trust Jeff Sessions, and well how did that turn out? With confirmation bias at hand, the most firebrand ‘Q’ advocate can insist that the apparent fallout between Sessions and POTUS was theatrical performance, and part of the plan. It’s more 4D chess in order to throw off the Deep State! ‘Q’ had given dates for Hillary’s arrest in 2017 among other things. ‘Q’ stated McCain would resign from office. (McCain never left until he died.) Did any of these things transpire? No.

Later when caught in his own web of tangled deceit and false prophecy, his mea culpa became that he was purposefully seeding the truth he espoused with a bit of disinformation too in order to throw off those enemies that may be watching. So what else did ‘Q’ do to solve his problematic array of false prophecies? He evolved into a sort of cryptic ambiguity not unlike Nostradamus with future utterances consisting of vague word salads, sentence fragments, and even benign statements, so as to alleviate criticism of his online persona for being so prone to either deception of his followers at worst or misjudgment at best. ‘Q’ would utilize so-called stringers in the similitude of Mr. Robot:

Helicopter.
CRASH.
Newport Beach.
Hotel GM.
What happened @ these hotels?

_27-1_yes_USA94-2
_27-1_yes_USA58-A
_27-1_yes_USA04

Godspeed.

Above ‘Q’ referenced a 2018 helicopter crash in Newport Beach, California. Instead of offering answers as to ‘who,’ ‘what,’ or ‘why,’ he merely offered anecdotes — clues perhaps. It was as though ‘Q’ was exhorting the ‘Anons’ to go sleuthing, and through their own detective work, they may gain insight, and discern what’s happening in the tangled web of Deep State intrigue. As well, ‘Q’ dealt in morale boosting motivational anecdotes as well. ‘Q’ punctuated his messages with Bible verses, and appeals to Christian morality and conceptual notions of faithfulness. ‘Q’ loves to hearken to pop culture motifs by punctuating his comments with Youtube clips from popular films like Crimson Tide and Law Abiding Citizen, or suspense-building musical soundtracks. ‘Q’ also regularly posted anecdotes boasting of Trump policy successes that were easy to discern from the news requiring no special insight nor Q security clearance for that matter.

It’s entirely possible ‘Q’ is an intelligence operative(s), but rather one running a psychological operation to pacify the political Right with ‘hope’ in the face of their seeming long-term political marginalization that’s coming. Maybe ‘Q’ was just a random Joe Blow, and intelligence operative(s) muted the original ‘Q,’ and then seized upon his influence and audience for counterintelligence purposes. The problem with its core notion ‘the government (military) will save us‘ is that it inculcates passivity among the general public that embraces the claims of ‘Q’. So why do anything as patriots? The U.S. military will save you in the end! It’s inevitable, right? ‘Nothing can stop what is coming,’ saith the ‘Q.’

The State Political Directorate (GPU) of the Soviet Union ran a successful, but brutally repressive counterintelligence operation, known as Operation Trust. The late KGB defector, Anatolyn Golitsyn, referenced it in his book New Lies For Old, which I have read and possess. Chris Menahan raised the resemblance of the ‘Q’ movement to ‘Operation Trust’ in a recent op-ed on Information Liberation that Gateway Pundit further popularized in its ‘me too’ article chronicling the original op-ed. The operation entailed Soviet secret police setting up a fake anti-Bolshevik resistance group, “The Monarchist Union of Central Russia,” which served to help the Soviet authorities identify and silence real monarchists, anti-communists, and dissidents by drawing them into an elaborate honeypot trap. The designated head of the MUCR was a former bureaucrat of Czarist Russia who capitulated to cooperate with Soviets, and he was permitted to travel abroad and contact Russian emigrants. The plot had a multi-fold purpose: (1) it allowed for the identification of dissidents, (2) it allowed for the subsequent silencing and/or surveillance of those dissidents, (3) it concurrently aimed to pacify both domestic resistance and the threat of foreign intervention from abroad under the pretense that there was a significant Czarist resistance entrenched in the Red Army itself, and (4) it aimed to encourage the return of Russian émigrés abroad, particularly dissidents, perhaps with a false hope that the Bolshevik regime was about to be extirpated by the monarchists. Operation Trust achieved all of these aims under the pretense that the Soviet government would eventually be toppled in favor of a return to a traditional nationalist government by these Czarist elements in the Soviet Red Army, and its spies fed this lie to its dissident targets in a well-orchestrated psychological operation.

Anatoliy Golitsyn, New Lies For Old (1984), 13-14.

I have to admit even the parallels of ‘Q’ movement to Operation Trust is entirely speculative. When a friend once asked me in 2019 why I didn’t believe ‘Q’ I pointed out that one can reasonably infer much of the ranking military brass are globalists nowadays, and Trump’s populist nationalist worldview is essentially alien to them. Consider General Mattis, for instance. Thus it stood to reason the notion the U.S. military would somehow ‘save us’ from globalism (and the myriad other vices associated with globalist elites) was a bit of a misplaced hope, and certainly not a well-reasoned one. The so-called Deep State is well entrenched in military culture with its web of secrecy and intrigue.

There is no point in ‘Q’ critics being overly alarmist about ‘Q’ either as ‘Q’ separates himself from all the myriad claims of the thousands of ‘Anons’ (i.e., short-hand for ‘anonymous’: those anonymous posters that reply to his ‘Q’ drops,) and ‘Q’ has stressed that the ‘Anons’ do not speak for him. This counteracts the particularly uncharitable views of ‘Q’ and ‘Q’ followers that the mass-media and the political Left has taken up to paint them in the most extreme, dangerous, and politically radical light possible. Rather the operative descriptive monikers for ‘Anon’ followers may simply be ‘naïve’ albeit ‘hopeful.’ To his credit, ‘Q’ criticizes Nazism, Communism, and totalitarian systems in general. It’s not arguably wrong to share in the hopes of ‘Q’ followers that evil people like corrupt politicians, pedophiles and Satanic cults would be brought to justice, and such things do happen, and should not be dismissed casually. That’s the allure of the ‘Q’ movement; it appeals to the patriot’s want of a just, free, and fair society generally, and one that is free of collectivism, widespread criminality, and conspiratorial intrigue in high places.

‘Q’ inadvertently (or perhaps intentionally) nurtures “confirmation bias” in his ‘Anon’ followers. When the National Guard (who had already been snubbed by Democrats as being awash in Trump supporters) was summoned to Biden’s 20 Jan. 2021 inauguration, ‘Anon’ followers would interpret benign, anecdotal statements in light of ‘Q’ theory. For instance, an Army National Guard General Walker was interviewed by ABC News, he stated his pride for his 25,000 guardsmen that came to assist “a peaceful transition to military power.” Thus Walker’s remarks and the soldiers turning their backs to the presidential motorcade were interpreted by the ‘Anons’ that the military was speaking in code, viewing Biden’s administration as illegitimate at the onset, and the U.S. military was secretly assuming authority and power, preparing for arrests, and extirpation of the purported coup d’état within a matter of weeks.

After the 7 November 2020 election, the 14 December 2020 Electoral College vote, the 6 January 2021 confirmation of the electors, and the climatic inauguration of Joe Biden as President, one was left wondering whether all of the Q commentators that emphatically held that Trump would be a second-term President would just go radio silent. But they didn’t. They’d echo the ‘Trust the plan’ motto yet still. They’d act as though the plot was thickening even though some were caught in their own failed predictions that Biden’s inauguration would not be allowed to take place. They’d address their lack of prescience by pointing to exigent circumstances emerging in the course of events, thus changing expectations, strategies, and outcomes. The ‘Anons’ would even chalk it up to the genius of ‘Q’ that the conspirators are allowed to incriminate themselves even more before the military inevitably shuts them down and brings them to justice. Granted the Q commentators can make factual appeals at time. This is the allure of ‘Q’ movement; it speaks truth at times with a lot of idle conjecture, and above all, it offers hope! Dave of the X22 Report maintains that the U.S. military is obligated under Military Code 11.3 (i.e., Law of Belligerent Occupation) to extirpate an illegitimate power once it’s detected, (and impliedly election fraud would delegitimize a regime.) This really is on the books and emerged amid Cold War fears of communist subversion of our civilian government. But Dave’s appropriation of this legal code does not itself mean the actuality of an on-going U.S. military sting operation to detect, document, and reverse a purportedly stolen election, nor that the Law of Belligerent Occupation is actually being invoked to justify military interposition against a presumably illegitimate presidency and conspirators.

Kevin Shipp, an ex-CIA officer, wrote on his piece “Kevin Shipp Investigates”:

Because “Q anon” has such control over a sizable number of people, approximating two million, I decided to do my own investigation, much like those I did as a CIA counterintelligence investigator, digging into a espionage cases. Before the army of trolls or offended Q anon devotees try the accusation, “Once CIA always CIA,” I encourage you go go to the blue bar at the top of this site and read the account of blowing the whistle on the CIA, risking prison; because of the poisoning of my family. All the documents the CIA tried to black out and conceal are there. Since Q claims to be an insider with a high level “Q” clearance, that is where I started. Because I had the highest clearance in the US government and was an internal investigator for security clearances, I knew immediately Q was a fake. If an insider with such a clearance posted classified information on the dark web, the site of hard core porn, pedophilia and drug trafficking, he or she could be easily identified, in less than a week, because of data on all those with this clearance. An espionage investigation would be initiated and the person arrested in a matter of days. Of course, this has not happened with this person or persons. I think it began with just two people. If you examine 8 Chan’s history, you will see the poster started with, “FBI anon,” this did not take, so he went to, “CIA anon,” this did not take, so he went to, “White House Insider anon,” this did not take, so he went to, “Q clearance patriot.” Because these posts appealed to a wide variety of existing conspiracy theories, this worked and the perpetrator renamed himself, “Q.” I knew going in, with my first interview with brilliant journalist Greg Hunter, I would receive a significant amount of attacks from Q followers for questioning their oracle. Of course this happened. It increased with my subsequent Twitter posts exposing, “Q” and with interviews I have done since then. Real investigative journalism does not kiss up to a mob, nor is it afraid of retribution. Because Q is leading so many good people into what amounts to a digital cult, I feel duty bound to reveal my findings. For the Love of Freedom, Kevin Shipp.

At the end of the day, part of what makes what ‘Q’ posits so scary is he would have you believe that the construction of FEMA camps to hold 200,000+ detainees is somehow potentially positive outcome for liberty, patriots, and a free society. What if those camps are meant for the ‘Anons’? 😉

Alas, the optimistic Trump supporter will say maybe ‘Q’ is real. But as my skeptical friend says, “I’d believe it when I see it.” Some suggest President Trump inadvertently nurtured hope to believe in the core tenants of ‘Q’. He never denied it, though I think that calculus not to criticize more accurately reflected his wise desire to avoid alienation of the movement ahead of an election season. Perhaps in three months when ‘Q’ is vindicated, and military tribunals pronounce judgment upon ‘the swamp monsters’ and Bond Villains, then some smart-alec ‘Anon’ can come on my blog, and comment on this post: “This aged well.” Until that time, caution and skepticism is sure warranted.

Words of President Trump were seized upon by ‘Q’ followers in a bit of confirmation bias to demonstrate legitimacy of ‘Q.’ It’s entirely possible Trump is referencing ‘Q’ here but humoring them in a sense.

The Epoch Times reports that Red China interfered with the 2020 election based on a report by DNI John Ratcliffe, Director of National Intelligence (DNI) while CIA management pressured lower-level analysts to discount this assessment in their reports:

Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe assessed that China interfered in the 2020 federal elections, according to a letter transmitted to Congress.

In the letter (pdf), Ratcliffe alleges that intelligence about China’s election interference was suppressed by management at the CIA, which pressured analysts to withdraw their support for the view.

Citing a report by the Intelligence Community Analytic Ombudsman Barry Zulauf, the director of national intelligence said some analysts were reluctant to describe China’s actions as election interference because they disagreed with the policies of President Donald Trump.

The Washington Examiner published Ratcliffe’s letter and the ombudsman report on Jan. 17, ten days after publishing an original report on the documents. The ODNI did not respond to requests from The Epoch Times to authenticate the documents.

“Based on all available sources of intelligence, with definitions consistently applied, and reached independent of political considerations or undue pressure—that the People’s Republic of China sought to influence the 2020 U.S. federal elections,” Ratcliffe wrote…

…Neither the ombudsman report nor the letter from Ratcliffe includes details on China’s meddling.

“Public Data Shows 432,000 Trump Votes Removed in Pennsylvania Election: Data Scientists”

The election was stolen from Trump. If it’s not reversed, the United States may be rightly regarded as a corrupt banana republic, and it’s so shocking, I am compelled to consider expatriating abroad.

The Data Integrity Group, a group of data scientists, has been dissecting publicly available data on the presidential election in multiple states. Most recently, in Pennsylvania, they found over 432,000 votes were removed from President Donald Trump in at least 15 counties. Time-series election data shows Trump’s votes decreasing in various counties at many time points, instead of increasing. In an election, as you count votes, you typically only see vote increments, not decrements—unless some error occurred that needs to be assessed. The group also testified before the Georgia Senate that more than 30,000 votes were removed from President Trump in Georgia. This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

If this event is not to be abated, it is a harbinger of many more years of political corruption and the climatic loss of the Bill of Rights and free government. The neoliberal globalists have long engaged in a long game of juxtapositioning larger numbers of migrant aliens against the native stock peoples of Western nations both to diminish wages as well as the political power of the old stock Westerners. These transnational globalist elites do so to divide and conquer, and out of indifference to the historical cultural and moral norms of their respective nations. This recent 2020 election manifests just how truly bleak the state of affairs is in the United States. I’ll never accept President Biden as a legitimate President. He’s an immoral, wicked, and corrupt man that belongs in federal prison, not the White House.

“Never Give Up” – Inspiring words from the President of the U.S. Donald John Trump

“Europe Must Not Succumb to the Soros Network”

by Viktor Mihály Orbán, Prime Minister of Hungary since 2010.

Great forces are once again moving to eradicate the nations of Europe and unify the continent under the aegis of a global empire. Today the Soros network, which promotes a global open society and seeks to abolish national frameworks, is the greatest threat faced by the states of the European Union.

Many believe that the prime minister of a country should not enter into an argument with George Soros. Their reasoning is that Soros is an economic criminal, because he made his money through speculation, ruining the lives of millions of people, and even blackmailing entire national economies. Just as governments must not negotiate with terrorists, they say, prime ministers must likewise not debate with economic criminals.

Yet now I am compelled to do so, because in an article appearing on the Project Syndicate website on 18 November, the Hungarian-born speculator and billionaire George Soros issued open commands to the leaders of the European Union. In his article he instructs them to severely punish those Member States that do not want to become part of a unifying European empire under the banner of a global “open society.”

Throughout history, Europe’s strength has always been derived from its nations. Although of different origins, European nations were bound together by the common roots of our faith. The foundation of our communities was the European family model, itself based on Judeo-Christian traditions. It was Christian freedom which ensured freedom of thought and culture, and which created benign competition among the continent’s nations. This magnificent amalgam of contrasts made Europe the world’s leading power through centuries of history.

Every attempt to unify Europe under the aegis of empire has failed. Thus historical experience tells us that Europe will be great again if its nations become great again, and resist all forms of imperial ambition.

Great forces are once again moving to eradicate the nations of Europe and unify the continent under the aegis of a global empire. The Soros network, which has woven itself through Europe’s bureaucracy and its political elite, has for years been working to make Europe an immigrant continent. Today the Soros network, which promotes a global open society and seeks to abolish national frameworks, is the greatest threat faced by the states of the European Union. The goals of the network are obvious: to create multi-ethnic, multicultural open societies by accelerating migration, and to dismantle national decision-making, placing it in the hands of the global elite.

The European Union is suffering from multiple afflictions: since 2008 an economic crisis of proportions not seen for generations; since 2015 a migration crisis; and in 2020 a devastating global pandemic. Europe has still not recovered from its previous crises, and so the impact of the coronavirus pandemic has the potential for even greater distress. There are already signs of this: in several countries public debt, unemployment rates and the general economic situation have reached critical levels. The need for European solidarity, for European nations to come together to help each other, has never been greater.

During all these crises, this speculator – who calls himself a philanthropist – did not consider the interests of the people of Europe, but acted to his own advantage. Memorably he attacked the Hungarian forint and Hungary’s largest bank in the economic crisis, and he planned to speed up, distribute and finance the resettlement of immigrants during the migrant crisis; and now he is proposing that Member States punish one another, instead of embracing solidarity and mutual assistance.

The network directed by George Soros has now discarded any hesitancy it may have had about open intervention. He wants to put more pressure on nation states than ever before. He is setting the peoples of Europe against one another. The network’s operational system is labyrinthine, and is present in various arenas of public life. On the payroll of George Soros are a long list of politicians, journalists, judges, bureaucrats and political agitators masquerading as members of civil society organizations. And although the billionaire accuses all his enemies of corruption, he himself is the most corrupt man in the world. He pays off and buys whoever he can – and those whom he cannot bribe will be slandered, humiliated, intimidated and destroyed by the network through its formidable weapon: the left-wing media battalions.

Many high-ranking EU bureaucrats are working with the Soros network to create a unified empire. They want to build an institutional system that, under the aegis of the open society, seeks to force a unified way of thinking, a unified culture and a unified social model on Europe’s free and independent nations. They seek to rescind the right of every people to decide its own destiny. This is also the purpose of their “rule of law” proposal – which does not, in fact, recognize the rule of law, but of strength. It would be more honest to call it the “rule of the majority.”

The differences between us are obvious. Soros wants an open society, while we want a safe society. According to him, democracy can only be liberal, while we think it can be Christian. According to him, freedom can only serve self-realization, while we believe that freedom can also be used to follow the teachings of Christ, to serve one’s country, and to protect our families. The basis of Christian freedom is the freedom to decide. This is now in jeopardy.

We in the eastern part of the EU know very well what it means to be free. The history of the nations of Central Europe has been a relentless struggle for freedom against great empires, a repeated battle to win our right to decide our own destinies. We have bitter first-hand experience that every imperial endeavor brings enslavement. There are still quite a few here from the generation of freedom fighters – in the former Eastern Bloc, from Estonia to Slovenia, from Dresden to Sofia – who can personally remember what it is like to oppose tyranny, the rule of man and its communist version: intimidation, material and moral ruination, physical and mental abuse. We want no more of that.

Western leaders who have lived their whole lives in a world of inherited freedom and the rule of law should now listen to those who have fought for freedom and who – based on their personal life experiences – can distinguish between the rule of law and tyranny, or the rule of man. Such Western leaders must accept that in the 21st century we shall not surrender the freedom we fought to achieve at the end of the 20th century.

The battle for and against the new Brussels empire has not yet been decided. Brussels seems to be surrendering, but many nation states continue to resist. If we want to preserve our freedom, Europe must not succumb to the Soros network.

American Thinker: “Trump’s call to Georgia’s secretary of state is Brad Raffensperger’s dodge.”

Tadas Klimas, a former FBI Agent, wrote an interesting piece in The American Thinker, entitled “Trump’s call to Georgia’s secretary of state is Brad Raffensperger’s dodge”:

The Internet is aflame about President Trump’s Jan. 3 call to the Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s secretary of state.

Any semi-honest perusal of the transcript will force a conclusion that not only was there nothing wrong with Trump’s statements, but that Raffensperger’s position is nothing but a dodge, a subterfuge, a bid to cover up his own failure to do his job and follow the law.  

Raffenberger’s dodge is this: To assert that anonymous state government employees have “investigated” allegations, so that there is nothing to speak about, all the while keeping the “reports” of the investigations secret.

If there are any.

An especially slick part of the dodge is that it is largely anonymous government employees being complained about, both in the execution of acts of fraud and in regard to their investigation (or cover-up).

An attorney for Trump, Cleta Mitchell, who participated in the call came close to spotting this. She said:

[Y]ou have data and records that we don’t have access to. And you can keep telling us and making public statem[ent[s] that you investigated this and nothing to see here. But we don’t know about that. All we know is what you tell us. What I don’t understand is why wouldn’t it be in everyone’s best interest to try to get to the bottom, compare the numbers, you know, if you say, because . . . to try to be able to get to the truth because we don’t have any way of confirming what you’re telling us. You tell us that you had an investigation at the State Farm Arena. I don’t have any report. I’ve never seen a report of investigation. I don’t know that is. I’ve been pretty involved in this, and I don’t know. 

The salient point is that there is no honest, above-board, reason to hide the reports. Not one single solitary reason, and there is every reason, if one is serving the public, to make certain they are made public and reviewable.

President Trump, much to his credit, sees this clearly. Trump said to Raffensperger,

But why wouldn’t you want to find the right answer, Brad, instead of keep saying that the numbers are right? ’Cause those numbers are so wrong?

The second part of the dodge is to refer anyone who doesn’t like being stonewalled to the courts.

In relation to the Georgia matter, as both Trump and his assistants noted:

[T]he court is not acting on our petition. They haven’t even assigned a judge.

What a run-around. And even further, it’s not as if there were a statute addressing this problem. There are no special statutes directing courts on how to review elections, let alone presidential elections. There are no statutes listing what should be reviewed, such as behavior of officials or access by observers of political parties, and to what standard.

Moreover, there is nothing at all like: “The court is bound to invalidate purported presidential election results when it finds there to have been a substantial lack of procedural integrity.”

Brad Raffensperger’s dodge, his stonewalling, and that of others like him, appears in itself to be nothing other than evidence of election fraud. What else could it be?

“Trump: Pence ‘Has the Power to Reject Fraudulently Chosen Electors'”

As President Trump declared on social media: “The Vice President has the power to reject fraudulently chosen electors.” The Epoch Times has an insightful piece, “Trump: Pence ‘Has the Power to Reject Fraudulently Chosen Electors.’” explaining how Vice President Pence can constitutionally play a role that Thomas Jefferson played two centuries ago, namely rejecting the Biden elector’s certifications on the grounds that fraud vitiates their legitimacy. Historically Democrats are notorious for challenging the legitimacy of electors in most of the recent presidential election cycles in which Democrats lost the Electoral College regardless of their newfound 2020 epiphany that the Vice President cannot interpose his authority, and is now somehow a mere ceremonial figurehead. Congress decided the elections of 1800 and 1824 scuttling the mechanism of the Electoral Congress. There’s little reason to believe that the Supreme Court of the United States would make any effort to overturn this process for the simple reason as Madison said in Federalist No. 51, “In republican government the legislative authority, necessarily, predominates. . .” and as Hamilton avowed in Federalist No. 78, “The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments. . .”:

President Donald Trump asserted on Tuesday that Vice President Mike Pence has the power to reject electors that were fraudulently chosen, echoing statements made by his legal team in recent days ahead of Jan. 6’s Joint Session of Congress.

“The Vice President has the power to reject fraudulently chosen electors,” Trump wrote on Tuesday in a tweet.

Republicans have been increasingly putting pressure on Pence, who serves as the president of the Senate and will oversee the certification of the Electoral College vote. At least a dozen Republican senators and dozens of House representatives have pledged to object to states’ electoral votes, which then is slated to trigger an hourslong debate before a simple-majority vote is held on whether to certify a state’s electoral votes.

“I know we all have got our doubts about the last election,” Pence told a crowd of supporters in Georgia on Monday, adding that “I want to assure you that I share the concerns of millions of Americans about voting irregularities. I promise you, come this Wednesday, we will have our day in Congress.”

Hours after Pence spoke, Trump told Georgia voters: “I hope Mike Pence comes through for us, I have to tell you.”

“I hope that our great vice president, our great vice president, comes through for us. He’s a great guy,” Trump said, without elaborating. “Of course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him as much.”

But there have been questions about what power Pence actually has, as many legal experts have stipulated that the vice president mainly serves in a ceremonial capacity.

For the past several weeks since the Nov. 3 election, Trump and his team have alleged there was voter fraud, irregularities, and unconstitutional changes to regulations around mail-in balloting in key states. On Dec. 14, when the Electoral College voted, Republican-backed slates of electors also cast their votes for Trump and Pence in a bid to keep Trump’s legal challenges open.

The Joint Session of Congress opens starting at 1 p.m. on Wednesday. In prior sessions, vice presidents opened up certificates reflecting the electoral vote tallies that were sent by states before handing them to “tellers,” who are individuals appointed by both chambers of Congress to read out the ballots and verify. The tellers then read the ballots in alphabetical order, starting with Alabama.

A challenge to a state’s electoral votes needs to be submitted in writing and requires a senator and a representative. On Monday, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), the lawmaker leading the effort in the House, announced he signed an objection to “tainted” electoral votes in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—states where Trump’s campaign has filed lawsuits or held hearings in front of legislature members.

There has been growing pressure on Pence to take action during the Joint Session, with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and other Republicans filing a lawsuit against him in a bid to strike down a key provision of the 1887 Electoral Count Act, among other requests. That lawsuit was dismissed over the past weekend by a Texas court. And White House adviser Peter Navarro also asserted that Pence can delay the Joint Session process and provide a 10-day audit of the election results.

Pence spokesman Marc Short dismissed the claim.

“Peter Navarro is many things,“ he told the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday. “He is not a constitutional scholar.”
