A COUP DE PRESS.
Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.
At 11:36 on Saturday, The Wall Street Journal released its push notification declaring Joe Biden President Elect. "Joe Biden is elected President, the AP says. . . " was the exact quote. Within minutes dozens of news agencies ran stories claiming that Joe Biden had been elected President. Not that he was projected to win, but that he was actually elected. Hours later, thousands of unmasked celebrators took to the streets shouting victory chants. In New York, the ostensibly pandemic-conscious Mayor Bill de Blasio joined the maskless in Time Square while concurrently forcing the cancelation of a Sukkots celebration by orthodox Jews in Williamsburg. By Saturday evening, the press had reached a consensus that former Vice President would be the next President of the United State and was carrying his address to the nation in support of it.
There was only one problem with the press's claims. It was not true.
Historically, it has been common for the press to declare candidates winners. Generally, the press has done this in elections where the outcome is so clear that they can confidently project who will eventually prevail. But even under these clear-cut circumstances, the press's position carries absolutely no weight. In order for a candidate to actually carry an election, the counting authority needs to tabulate all the votes, verify them, and certify them. Only when the votes are certified is the candidate considered the winner and, eventually, inducted into office.
For the President, the situation is even more involved. The election of the President of the United States is a process of multiple coordinated state races occurring on the same day. By constitutional design, each state is its own electoral microcosm. Each state has to garner the votes from each of its counties' election officials, verify their authenticity, and then certify. Next, the state legislature is responsible for sitting the delegates representing them, and then Congress approves the delegates. Ultimately, these delegates assemble on the second Wednesday of December (3 U.S.C. §7) and vote for the President of the United States. This year that date falls on December 14, 2020. As of this point, not a single state has certified its votes. Not one. Thus, despite the press's orgasmic elation, the only thing that has yet happened in this process is that people have voted, and yes, many of them were dead at the time they cast their vote.
Of course, despite this convoluted process it has been common for the press to declare winners. The only difference between this and other cycles is that this election is being actively contested. Remember, the last time the press elected a president in its collective mind during a contested election, they picked Al Gore, and we know how well that turned out for him.
In fact, there was only one reason for the press's fake declaration of a winner last Saturday: because Rudy Giuliani was scheduled to hold a voter fraud press conference in Philadelphia, just 26 minutes later. Their goal, it is now clear, was merely to drown out whatever the President's team may have said about the invalidity of certain state elections.
But in reality, nothing actually happened. Former Vice President Biden was not elected, despite the Left's declarations to the contrary. And if anything the weight of the evidence that will topple some of the fraudulent elections conducted in crucial states, continues to grow. The Public Interest Legal Foundation filed a lawsuit Sunday in the Middle District of Pennsylvania reporting over 210,000 dead voters in Pennsylvania voter rolls. They are asking the court to allow the review of the voting records with the aim of disallowing those deceased citizens who may have voted in Pennsylvania. In Michigan, GOP County Commissioner Adam Kochenderfer, who had been declared the loser of his election in Antrim County by 104 votes, was informed yesterday that he had actually won 1,127 votes; a swing for 1,231 votes. The reason was yet another "glitch' in the software used in counting the votes. Presumably, the presidential votes were similarly affected. In Nevada, where the margin is 34,283, the list of presumed foreign voters has now grown to over 7,000, and this figure does not include the number of deceased voters. Meanwhile in Congress, members such as Steven Smith (R-GA) are recognizing the power of the statistical analyses in proving fraud. According to the Congressman, "Joe Biden's numbers are 99% flawed." With such massive irregularities detected by statistical tests routinely used in court to prove fraud, it is highly unlikely that the Courts, the various legislatures, and even Congress will not insist that they be corrected.
If you're like many who have felt overwhelmed by the filthiness of this process and have shut yourself out, it is time to come out of your shell, continue your active support for your candidate, and observe these developments closely. And it all begins today, when the President's team is scheduled to file a series of lawsuits in various states. The contents of those complaints will not only reveal the flavor of the concern over each of the state's elections but also provide us clues to the seriousness of their allegations.
Despite the muck and the sleaze, there is only one thing that holds true at this point. We must get to the bottom of this because if this is really a case of massive voter theft and it is allowed to stand, there will never be a reason to have another election again. On the other hand, if Biden won fairly, then we must acknowledge him to be the legitimate President of the United States. Until such time, it is necessary for the process to play itself out, despite this coup de press.
