I had smug responses to my election prediction with comments such as “This aged well!”

But without making the blanket of article postings from the Epoch Times, Newsmax, etc., suffice to say I dignify the contention of the current President of the United States and the GOP legal counsel Sidney Powell that systemic election fraud transpired with Biden being the beneficiary. It will be proven before the bar of federal courts and the court of public opinion. Trump and his political base perceptively have the will to make his case and not give up.

I am more confident now that Trump will win the election.

While Sidney Powell, the senior counsel for the GOP, hinted at a promising case, litigation (on appeal all the way to the Supreme Court) may NOT be the basis of repudiating this election fraud on the whole. Obtaining the interposition of the state legislatures in Georgia and Michigan doesn’t seem promising anymore for Republicans. Many legal challenges are moving forward, and it’s a statistical game of approaching the case from a specific angle, and the strategy almost of necessity revolves around federal appeals with at least one case going all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States. What could happen is that the Supreme Court may speak to a specific legal question considering the validity of a class of election ballots of a singular state. They may make a favorable pronouncement for the GOP, but it may delimit the fraudulent ballots it sets aside to the state in question. More witnesses would come out. The plot would thicken. It could go down this way.

Under the 12th Amendment to the U.S. Const., if an intervening circumstance occurs whereby one candidate does not win a majority of the two-hundred and seventy plus Electoral College votes requisite to win, then the election is thrown to the U.S. Congress. Then the Trump voter may ponder, “well, this is not good because the Democrats control Congress!” This is the interesting part as that’s irrelevant because when Congress decides who’ll be President each state delegation gets only one vote no matter its size. And currently, Republicans control 26 of 50 state delegations. And, the catch-22 is that it’s not the current Congress that matters but the incoming one, which takes office January 3, more than two weeks before the president does. Congress decided the contingent elections of 1800 and 1824, and it’s going to likely mitigate against the fraud in this one. There’s no constitutional mechanism for a run-off popular election whatsoever. Because Congress is the popularly elected branch of government this mechanism probably carries the most legitimacy and is probably within the strategic calculation of the Republicans.

The race would then be adjudicated by Congress, in accordance with the original Constitution as amended by the 12th Amendment. Then the Trump voter may ponder, “well, this is not good because the Democrats control Congress!” This is the interesting part as that’s irrelevant because when Congress decides who’ll be President each state delegation gets only one vote no matter its size.

  1. If you’re reading NewsMax and Epoch Times for fact-based coverage, you’re in a dangerous misinformation bubble. Being in that bubble is what led you to make the wildly inaccurate prediction for the election. You’ll recall that in 2016 many made the same mistake for Clinton. Having the bubble burst can lead one to believe in conspiracies, because the mind wants to protect its beliefs at all costs. A more reasonable explanation is that one is not seeing things clearly due to the informational and ideological bubble they’re residing in. Just because reality disagrees with our desires doesn’t mean there’s a conspiracy. That’s a victimhood narrative.

  2. Looks like the transition has begun.

    Are you still “more sure than ever” Trump will be President in 2021?

    When your predictions are consistently this wrong, do you stop to ask if maybe….

    …you’re not seeing things clearly at all, and maybe not very good at this sort of thing?
