Election 2020: The Art of the Steal
Commentary by Adrian Norman
November 12, 2020


Audio Video

A coup d’état is taking place in America right now.

Elected officials in this country are selected by the citizens at the ballot box, not by fiat based on the predilections of current or former officials and bureaucrats. Yet, the latter group are seemingly attempting to put their thumb on the scale and tip the results of the 2020 election.

Though American citizens on both sides of the aisle support a transparent process where representatives from both political parties are able to monitor the vote tabulations, political officials are actively impeding one party’s efforts to ensure a fair count.

On the evening of Nov. 4, in Fulton County, Georgia, Republican observers were allegedly told to go home because election officials were closing up, David Shafer, chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, wrote on Twitter. But, after they left, election officials allegedly began processing the ballots in secret without the Republican observers present. The following day, elections officials stopped the GOP from observing the vote counting by operating a forklift “between the place the ballot scanners are located and the area our observers have been instructed to stand,” he said.

Shafer also said he authorized lawyers for the Georgia GOP to file an emergency petition against the Chatham County Board of elections to prevent the “unlawful counting of absentee ballots received after the election,” subsequent to observers watching a woman illegally mix new ballots into a stack of uncounted absentee ballots. Georgia law states that mail ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted toward a final tally.

By Friday, Biden is said to have taken the lead over Trump in Georgia “with little more than 900 votes separating the candidates,” according to the Associated Press. But, as the president noted on Twitter, there were nearly 9,000 missing military ballots that had not been counted. “Where are the missing military ballots in Georgia,” he wrote. “What happened to them?”

If you were trying to steal an election, this is what it would look like.

Shortly after the election, James O’Keefe, head of Project Veritas, released a video of an interview he conducted with a whistleblower from the United States Postal Service, who stated that Michigan post offices were allegedly backdating ballots that were sent after election day.

“We were issued a directive this morning to collect any ballots we find in mailboxes, collection boxes, just outgoing mail in general, separate them at the end of the day so that they could hand stamp them with [November third’s] date,” the whistleblower said. This order is in complete violation of state law, which requires ballots to be received by the election clerk before the polls close on Election Day.

Adding to the concern over fraud in the Wolverine State, it was revealed on Nov. 6 that a “software glitch” resulted in thousands of votes cast for Republicans being counted for Democrats.

“In Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans, causing a 6,000-vote swing against our candidates. The county clerk came forward and said, ‘Tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes,’” Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party chairwoman, said in a Friday news conference. “We have now discovered that 47 counties used this same software in the same capacity.”

The defective software that is causing these issues is by Dominion Voting Systems, which was used in 30 states in this year’s election.

“We have not yet been able to verify whether similar errors occurred in other counties where that software is being used. And we seek to do that in this lawsuit,” Trump campaign counsel Thor Hearne told reporters during a press call on Nov. 10, referring to a lawsuit to be filed in Michigan later that day.

Attorney Sidney Powell had earlier alleged software played a role and called for an investigation.

“That is where the fraud took place, where they were flipping votes in the computer system or adding votes that did not exist. We need an audit of all the computer systems that played any role in this fraud whatsoever,” Powell said in a Nov. 8 interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News.

“They had this all planned, Maria. They had the algorithms, they had the paper ballots waiting to be inserted if and when needed, and notably President Trump’s vote in the blue states went up enormously,” she said. “That’s when they had to stop the vote count and go in and replace votes for Biden and take away Trump votes.”

Also, on Nov. 9, GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel presented 131 affidavits and more than 2,800 incident reports that document reports of alleged election fraud and intimidation in Michigan. An affidavit is a sworn statement, made under oath, and is legally binding. If the affidavit contains false information, the person signing it is subject to perjury charges. So, all of this information is actual testimony and is considered evidence of potential election fraud and malfeasance.

If you were trying to steal an election, this is what it would look like.

In Philadelphia, officials hatched a plan to accept and count mail-in ballots that were received up to three days after the election and that don’t even have a postmark. So, there’s no way to know when the ballot was sent or (more importantly) from where. Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar said on Nov. 10 about 10,000 mail-in ballots were received between 8 p.m. polling day and 5 p.m. Nov. 6.

This matters when considering that by Friday newly processed mail-in ballots had supposedly cut Trump’s lead to less than 20,000 votes. It’s worth noting that on Nov. 5, the Public Interest Legal foundation (PILF) filed a lawsuit against the Pennsylvania Department of State for “failing to reasonably maintain voter registration records under federal and state law” after the watchdog group found at least 21,000 deceased registrants on the state’s voter rolls in the final weeks of the 2020 election cycle.

Trump, on Twitter on Nov. 6, loosely quoted attorney and former special counsel Ken Starr on the alleged corruption taking place in Pennsylvania:

“This is what we know. We have to go back to the state level and how this morass came to be in the first instance. The Governor, Wolf, and the State Supreme Court, flagrantly violated the Constitution of the U.S.,” Starr, a former federal Court of Appeals judge and solicitor general, said in an interview with Fox Business’ Varney & Co., according to Trump. “The power to set these rules and regulations is vested in the Legislature. They just ignored that, ignored the Constitution.

“Now we bring it down to the counting houses, and outrageously, observers, who are the sentinels of integrity & transparency, were excluded. Pennsylvania has conducted itself in a horrible lawless way, and hopefully this will be corrected at the Supreme Court of the United States,” he said. “Also, these late ballots past Election Day are illegal, exactly what the President has been saying. … The Supreme Court, in extraordinary circumstances, has been able to render decisions in a matter of days.”

Meanwhile, on Thursday and Friday, Project Veritas released two additional videos showing interviews with whistleblowers who stated that USPS in Pennsylvania also allegedly engaged in election fraud by illegally backdating ballots.

Finally, recall that, 1) Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said just days prior to the election “if all the votes are added up in PA, Trump is going to lose,” and, 2) Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State—who oversees the election—said in 2016 and 2017 that Trump demeaned the office of the presidency and that he was “dangerously unfit” for office.

If you were trying to steal an election, this is what it would look like.

On Nov. 9, U.S. Attorney General William Barr authorized federal prosecutors to investigate “substantial allegations” of election fraud. In a memo (pdf) to the most senior officials within the Department of Justice (DOJ), he states that “inquiries and reviews may be conducted if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual state.”

Barr instructed officials to defer the investigation of claims of irregularities that, if true, would not impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual state until after the election certification process is complete. He also stated that “specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries.”

Though many publications and commentators continue to falsely state there’s no evidence of fraud or irregularities in this election, we have clear examples from across the country, including a criminal referral sent to the DOJ from the Nevada GOP documenting “at least 3,062 instances of voter fraud.” Whether or not those crimes get punished and/or those illegal votes become disqualified remains to be seen.

Conclusion

We are reaching the completion of a year in which the quality of our election integrity and security was intentionally eroded with the foreseeable outcome being chaos and discord, which would then be leveraged to steal the election from President Trump.

The CCP virus panic was exploited and used as the basis to institute widespread mail-in voting, a system that we already knew was unsecure. The polling this year was even worse than in 2016, because pollsters—along with corrupt figures within the mainstream media establishment—pushed the lie that Biden was ahead by wide margins to be able to claim that these fraudulent election results have merit.

After the Mueller investigation failed and the Democrats’ impeachment scheme failed, this was their final Hail Mary to try and oust from office a duly elected President of the United States.

A Critical Moment in History
Commentary by The Tuidang Center
November 13, 2020


The United States stands at a critical moment in history. Factors of the specter of socialism and communism are trying to subvert the great democratic system of the United States, trying to steal the election in the United States.

Only a short while ago, the United States was widely recognized as the greatest country on Earth. The democratic system and the rule of law in the United States have guaranteed world peace and ensured a bright future for all of humanity. The reason the United States is so powerful is that the founders of this nation laid out the fundamental principles: respect freedom of belief, freedom of speech, democracy, and the rule of law. The nation was founded upon a firm belief in the existence of God. All of these stand in contradiction, by nature, to the evil communism that has flooded the world.

As history has come to today, all the activities in our society have manifested as a great struggle between the forces of good and evil in the universe.

This election is not only about the reelection of President Donald Trump. It is the war between good and evil in the universe, manifested in the human world.

Over many years, the factors of the specter of communism and the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have regarded the United States as their mortal enemy. They have plotted the decline of morality among all nations through blackmail, bribery, corruption, violence, deceit, and the destruction of traditions. They have infiltrated the United States and the entire world through pervasive evil means. Their evilness has its influence in all fields in society, including politics, business, culture, technology, education, media, and nongovernmental organizations. Through wicked means, they have beaten the United States black and blue. Their evil purpose is to force all nations and all people of the world to stand in opposition to God. This is the work of the evil that aims to destroy human beings. This dying specter of communism has reached its peak of madness. Its evil is expressed in the chaos of this election.

We, the Global Service Center for Quitting the Chinese Communist Party, firmly resist communist infiltration into this U.S. election. We support all legal actions undertaken against alleged fraud in the election process.

We believe, no matter how crazy the evil acts, it will only last a short while. All righteous deities will not stand by. Justice will prevail. President Donald Trump is carrying God’s mission and leading the United States back to tradition, disintegrating the CCP. President Donald Trump carries the mission given by God to lead the people.

All righteous forces in this world will certainly stand with President Trump. Chinese people and billions of people around the world who have been victimized by communism will stand together with President Trump.

On July 1, 2017, President Trump at a speech at Freedom University said, “American people don’t worship the government. We worship God.”

Let us pray to God together that the Creator will help awaken people’s sense of justice and conscience in this difficult time, provide people with wisdom, protect the United States and the people of the world, and lead all of the humankind towards a bright future.

May the Creator bless the United States and make the United States great again!

The Tuidang Center coordinates the Tuidang movement that has helped 367 million Chinese people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations in the past 16 years. The Tuidang movement began when the Chinese-language edition of The Epoch Times printed an editorial series called the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Tuidang is not a political movement; it is based on traditional Chinese moral values and asks people to renounce the oaths they have given to the CCP, which all Chinese people have had to do since childhood. The Tuidang Center, also known as the Global Service Center for Quitting Chinese Communist Party, Inc. a 501(c)(3) registered in the United States.

Disclosure: “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” was published by the Chinese-language edition of The Epoch Times. The Chinese-language edition of The Epoch Times also sponsors the quitting-the-CCP movement.

On the Election Fraud of November 2020

J.R. Nyquist
Nov. 11, 2020

The people of the rural Midwest are solid. Especially farmers. Having left California for the rural Midwest, I’ve had a chance to make new friends. One of them was kind enough to share her thoughts about the election. Here is Mary’s open letter to President Donald J. Trump, urging him to fight:


“FREEEE-DOMM,” cries William Wallace at the most climactic moments of the movie Braveheart. And that noble and profound shout emanates and reverberates now, from the enormous heart of an admittedly—until 2016—unlikely man, namely, President Donald J. Trump.

In this, an open letter to President Trump and to all Republican lawmakers, I offer an urgent message from a wife and mother who is raising up boys in the rural Midwest.

Mr. President, I urge you to stay the course. Just as you have fought for all American workers, taxpayers, troops, veterans, the unborn, and many others, now you are fighting for the sanctity of the American vote. Please, I beg you, continue taking this election fight to the courts, just as William Wallace took his fight straight to the English. So much about these election “results” stinks. Normal people see it.

And hear me, Republican party lawmakers across America, you are the “nobles,” from the Braveheart story. Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to dig deep and find some selfless heroism somewhere inside your collective souls so that we can change the Braveheart ending. To you, I say, stand with our Braveheart. Do not conspire against him for your own gain, lest you be remembered as the reason America’s election integrity was trashed forever without murmur in front of God and everybody, and our freedoms of speech, assembly, press, religion, to bear arms, and more were lost to a Harris—yes, Harris—administration.

As a parent I have learned to “inspect what you expect.” Shouldn’t America do the same? In our home, a child’s coverup is a worse offense than any original disobedience. And so it should be in our great republic. Republican efforts to hastily move beyond the election, to ignore the brazen and audacious fraud committed in full public view, are nothing less than a coverup, and are thus a morally worse act than the original malfeasance.

Even children watching on election night recognized that vote counting was mysteriously halted at the key moment and in the key states, at just the point when the President’s enormous leads could be rightly assessed (and algorithms deployed?). Even children found it “weird” that vote counting had to be paused for any reason whatsoever in a country as technologically advanced as ours. Since then, votes have been “found” and poll-watchers forcefully shut out, as Democrats scrambled—for 72 hours at this writing—to counter President Trump’s enormous leads. Wisconsin’s registered voter turnout was 90%, we’re told. Sure it was. And 47 Michigan counties suffered “computer glitches” in Mr. Biden’s favor. Right. We tell our children that “nothing good happens after midnight.” And so it was that votes for Mr. Biden were “dumped” in Michigan and Wisconsin at three and four in the morning on November 4. And the number of known dead persons who “voted” grows daily.

And big tech and mainstream media sycophants have obliged their Democrat overlords by censoring and thwarting every rightful effort by at least half of this country’s citizens to discuss, organize, protest, or otherwise counter the Democrats’ long-planned dirty pool.

Every illegal vote disenfranchises at least one American citizen, no matter their race, class, creed, gender or ideology. Are our Republican politicians and state and federal legislatures going to sit still for such malfeasance, like neglectful parents? If so, what reason will anyone have, going forward, not to cheat? Good parents know this. Why is it so hard for our Republican lawmakers to get on board and sound the alarm? Proper methodical investigations will either prove the wrongdoing, or debunk it. Either way the citizens of our country need to know, and, more to it, they have a constitutional and God-given right to know.

And as for the non-elected class, will our Supreme Court continue to look the other way as, for example, Pennsylvania’s Democrats openly thwart the United States Constitution by bypassing their state legislature, and judicially changing election laws at the eleventh hour?

Mr. President, on behalf of, not only myself, but also so many family, friends and neighbors, I profoundly thank you for everything you have selflessly done for our country since January 2017. We recognize and lament the egregious, relentless and baseless attacks you and your family have endured since your election, and we fully support you and your teams as you take this fight for the heart and soul of our great nation to the courts – instead of to the streets as I believe Mr. Biden would do in your place, and may still do, given the Democrats’ strong ties to Antifa and BLM.

To our Republican lawmaker “nobles” currently doing nothing, or worse, I say, don’t be foolish—they are coming for you next. We must fight on—alongside President Trump—and, with God’s help, we must win. Our precious constitutional FREEEE-DOMMs, entrusted to us by our Founders, are now hanging in the balance.

Mary

Mary’s open letter to Trump says it all. Like many Americans, I believe Trump won the election. We saw all the telltales, just as Mary noted. Even children can see it. And if we don’t fight against this corruption, we’re finished.

Election Fallout Reveals Battle Between Freedom and Communism
A choice that transcends the political Right and Left

Epoch Times Editorial Board
November 13, 2020

When the founders of our newspaper fled a communist regime to come to America, they never expected that this great nation would one day become the focal point of the battle between communism and freedom.

Many Americans believe communism is an abstract concept, something that only affects faraway nations, without realizing that it has already arrived at our doorstep.

Communism has spread in America under names such as socialism, progressivism, liberalism, neo-Marxism, and so on, in a slow process over decades of systematic subversion by first the Soviet Union, and now the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

This cumulative battle for the future of America—and with it, the rest of the world—is now coming to a head in the U.S. presidential election.

This is a conflict that transcends partisanship and party affiliation.

Belief in God has always been fundamental to America. The early colonists fled to the United States so that they could practice their religion freely. The United States was founded on the belief that we are all created equal by God and endowed by the Creator with our rights. The U.S. motto is “In God we trust.”

Belief in God and the principles derived from that belief are the fundamental reasons why the United States can enjoy freedom, democracy, and prosperity, and why the United States has become the nation it is today.

In this great tradition, voting is a sacred duty in which each citizen may take responsibility for who governs. This year, a record number of Americans voted to choose their next leader.

We have since learned that this process has been subverted. Numerous credible allegations of voter fraud have emerged, pointing to a systematic effort to change the outcome of the election.

The far-left and the communist devil behind it—the same force that Karl Marx once described as haunting Europe—are using lies, fraud, and manipulation in an attempt to deprive the people of their rights and freedoms.

One of the two major U.S. parties, the Democratic Party, is no longer the political party it used to be. Over the decades, it has gradually been infiltrated by the same Marxist ideology that has created the most brutal and repressive communist regimes in history.

Communist ideology, including socialism and its associated ideas, is not a normal ideology. It is the ideology that has caused the unnatural deaths of at least 100 million people.

The communist ideology uses seemingly righteous concepts, such as “equality” and “political correctness,” to confuse people. Its ideology has infiltrated all fields in our society, including education, media, and art. It unscrupulously destroys everything that is traditional, including faith, religion, morality, culture, family, art, education, law, and so on, and leads people to fall into moral depravity.

This is the ideology of totalitarianism, one that drives once thriving nations such as Venezuela into the abyss and that was able to destroy 5,000 years of culture in China, where people went from a belief in the divine to a devotion to the state.

It is the systematic undoing of all that is good that humankind stands for. It is diametrically opposed to goodness, fairness, truth, and compassion.

This has not only undermined people’s spirits and their righteous faith in God, but has dragged the American people and all of mankind to the brink of danger.

A Choice Between Good and Evil

This is a conflict that transcends party lines, a battle between whether we as Americans can stay true to our founding principles and follow God’s will, or whether we will be subjected to forces that seek to control and destroy our most fundamental rights.

This is not something we say lightly; because our founders lived through communist totalitarianism, they understand its destructive force.

As a media organization, we are independent and don’t take positions on political issues or candidates, but rather stand for truth and justice.

America has now come to the brink of falling into a communist abyss.

At the center of this battle is now President Donald Trump, who has clearly said no to socialism and communism and ended decades of appeasement of the Chinese regime by enacting a nation-wide effort to counter its influence and infiltration.

Trump has confronted the CCP at this critical moment in history.

To communist China, the trajectory has been clear: Trump is an American president who values tradition and opposes communism, and as long as he leads, the Chinese regime knows it won’t succeed in its decades-long objective to overthrow America and with it the rest of the free world.

We have communist China at our gates, ready to take over. The CCP has carefully studied the U.S. system over the decades and now has successfully taken advantage of our open society and infiltrated our country.

Internally, we have far-left groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa organizing protests and riots. The movement is similar to the CCP’s Cultural Revolution, which destroyed the cultural heritage and traditions of the nation. It is an anti-American movement, just like the Cultural Revolution was anti-Chinese. The core of the movement’s ideology is no different from that of the communist movement in China, and it goes hand in hand with the CCP, ready to subvert America.

The impact of this election is far reaching. It has made clear to people, governments, and organizations around the world that they must decide whether they stand with the communist devil or with tradition and universal values.

More and more people are realizing that the 2020 U.S. election is not a two-party fight, not a dispute between Trump and Joe Biden, but a battle between tradition ​​and socialism, a battle between good and evil, a battle between the divine and the communist devil.

Trump Lawyer: “Our Country Is at War with Communist China, a War of Good vs. Evil”

Nov. 15, 2020 | By Minghui correspondent Ying Zi

Lucian Lincoln “Lin” Wood, a U.S. lawyer, recently joined President Trump’s legal team in response to the large scale voter fraud in the presidential election.

During a press conference by the Republican National Committee in Georgia on November 6, 2020, Mr. Wood emphasized that the U.S. is having a Constitutional crisis and “if we don’t get it right,” people would lose their Constitutional rights.

During the press conference, Mr. Wood said that President Trump was having a historic landslide victory on election night, when all of a sudden, his lead disappeared and most major networks, including Fox News, began to report that Joe Biden won the election.

“There is a cloud over this country. And if we don’t get it right and we don’t figure out what happened that night, that cloud is going to get darker and darker, until it turns into a storm cloud and we are going to lose our freedom. So it is time to fight back,” he said.

“This is a Constitutional crisis. If we don’t fix it and find out what happened and get it right, we are going to lose our Constitutional rights.”

Attorney Wood said that during his 43 years of practicing law, he never dreamed that people would be censored in the United States. He said if they take away people’s right of speech, then they would limit people’s right to go to church, followed by their First Amendment Right, their Second Amendment Right and then due process. After that, people might be put in jail for being “a dissenting voice to the ruling elite” without a jury trial. “This is about truth vs. lies,” he said.

Mr. Wood also tweeted that the U.S. is “at war with Communist China” and it’s a “war of good vs. evil.” He said on Twitter that the Chinese Communist Party “has been creeping into our country over decades. Schools, movies, television, Internet, government officials & politicians. Communists brag they will take our country over without firing a shot. Only We The People can stop it.”

In one Tweet, he said that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) spent two decades infiltrating media, as well as local, state and national government officials through ideology, money and extortion. Then the CCP unleashed the Covid-19 pandemic to attack the U.S., before getting involved in the mail ballot fraud. Additionally, the CCP also has connections with the Dominion company, whose vote counting system was reported to have switched 2.7 million Trump votes to Biden.

Attorney Wood called on the American people to “think for ourselves,” “fight for our freedom” and “don’t be manipulated.”

Opinion: Pfizer, Biden, and the Birth of ‘Socialism With American Characteristics’
Commentary by Roger L. Simon
November 13, 2020; Updated November 14, 2020




One of the more disturbing events of our disturbing times was the revelation Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla informed the Biden campaign of the success of his company’s COVID-19 vaccine before the current president and his administration.

In fact, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said he learned about the breakthrough from media reports—this although President Trump and his people gave significant support, financial and otherwise, via Operation Warp Speed, to Bourla’s company, something the Pfizer CEO tried to deny.

Now that Trump has signed the executive order he promised making the vaccine free for all, the company stands to make a killing at taxpayer expense.

But Bourla himself had already done that. He sold $5.6 million of shares on the day of the announcement when Pfizer stock rose 8 percent. A watchdog group is calling on the Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate.

What we are witnessing is the infiltration of the Chinese system into America. We can call it “Socialism with American Characteristics,” our own version of “Socialism with Chinese Characteristics.”

(Actually both are a masquerade for government-structured oligarchic capitalism—more on that later.)

We would likely see much more of this, perhaps a complete takeover by this approach, in a Biden-Harris administration.

The system in China dates back to Deng Xiaoping who rescued their economy from the extreme impoverishment that stemmed from the strictures of Marxist-Leninist-MaoZedong-thought during the Cultural Revolution. He did this by informing their citizenry he didn’t care if a cat was black or white as long it captured mice, a witty metaphor telling the Chinese people a form of capitalism was okay… up to a point.

Unfortunately, Deng, who seemed so modern, did not abandon the totalitarian aspects of communism, as we saw demonstrated since he was in charge during the Tiananmen Square massacre.

Now we have China under Xi Jinping continuing with Xi’s version of “Socialism with Chinese Characteristics,” allowing for a “socialism,” undoubtedly unrecognizable to Marx, that can make you a plutocrat billionaire as long as you or sufficient numbers of your executives are members of the CCP and mouth “egalitarian” communist rhetoric, as ludicrously hypocritical as it is.

In reality it’s a get-rich scheme for those who don’t care about despotism or can make peace with it. It’s a far more orderly system than free-market capitalism with fewer opportunities for advancement among the hoi polloi unless they join the party or leave the country.

“Socialism with American Characteristics” will be somewhat subtler at first because of the numbers of people in our society who grew up believing in such things as freedom of speech, assembly and religion, traditions of Anglo-Saxon culture that date back to the Magna Carta and have no place in Communist China or communist-anything.

Our schools, however, not to mention popular culture and a good swatch of our media, have been preparing the way for some time for the dissolution of these traditions. What are “woke-ness” and “cancel culture” but a frontal assault on free speech?

If the word “socialism” makes some of our people recoil, at least in the short run, it doesn’t matter. It’s not really socialism anyway. That’s a myth. It’s really oligarchic capitalism similar to what you have in Russia with the government determining winners and losers. China is just a spruced-up, more effective version of that with some of the rhetoric still intact and other parts altered to fit the business climate.

Marx claimed he was after the “withering away of the state.” This is the opposite.

Ours will be a country governed by an alliance of corporate giants from tech to Big Pharma (see Pfizer) in league with self-described liberal or progressive politicians who profit directly and/or indirectly from them.

The masses would remain, well, the masses.

In other words. “Socialism with American Characteristics” would be post-modern serfdom.

How do we stop it?

For now, elect Republican senators in Georgia to put a temporary brake on things.

Then we have a lot of thinking to do.
