Random Musings on Veterans' Day 2020: Has My Country Disappeared?

Veterans' Day and Memorial Day get me into a reflective mood. 

As a child, I remember these days as very solemn events, with old timers still calling Veterans' Day by its original moniker, Armistice Day. Since those long ago days, of course, both days have suffered substantial degradation. We don't teach history anymore, and instead of understanding and appreciating the sacrifice so many have made to preserve our freedoms, those days have become gimmicks for retail sales events: "25% off on Mattresses for Veterans' Day!" I would think we owe our veterans and our dead a bit more than just promoting discounts on retail junk.

Not just in the USA but throughout the West, in the name of "social justice," we seem intent on erasing our history and accomplishments, on degrading and canceling the great men who made the West great, and on destroying our institutions both great and small. We have rampaging mobs of illiterates unable to tell the difference between Hitler and Churchill. We see calls to "cancel" Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, etc. 

Thanks to billions upon billions of dollars dedicated to decades of garbage university and high school instruction we have secured the triumph of Pol Pot: Back to Year Zero! White Man Bad!

The destruction of our institutions seems quite clear. There are so many examples I can't bear to list them. Just take one, quite in the news today, as a sample of what we have done to ourselves: our electoral system. The United States, the great fortress of democracy, cannot run an honest election. We have managed to help set up very good electoral systems in places such as Guatemala, El Salvador, and even Iraq, but not at home. The elections of 2020 are a national disgrace, not, however, one achieved by incompetence alone; no, years of careful planning went into this achievement.

I have noted before that I have monitored elections all over the world; in all of them voters had to produce a nationally issued voter id card. Simple poor Guatemalan peasants can do it, but rich "sophisticated" Americans cannot. In addition, we have the world's most mysterious system of vote counting. Very few of us really know where the ballots go after we have marked them or entered our vote into some machine running Chinese software. We turn on our TVs and let the media tell us the vote totals and "call" winners and losers. 

In some very poor countries where I monitored elections, the votes would come in a sealed box placed upon a table around which sat representatives of all the parties running candidates. Election monitors, national and international, would also be present. The box would be opened in the presence of all, and the votes would begin to be pulled out one-by-one. Each party representative would have the opportunity to review the ballot. If all agreed, then that vote would be assigned to one or another candidate. Each representative kept his or her own running count, aside from the official count entered on a openly visible blackboard. The vote total had to match the number of voters who had appeared at that polling station. No mail-ins, no absentees. With all the votes counted, the president of the electoral board would prepare a fax, signed by the party reps and monitors, which would go with the tally results to the central polling office in the capital. There the faxed data would get reviewed, again by party representatives and monitors before the numbers went into the national total: a laborious process, but fair and open. We can't do something similar? Nonsense. By the way, let me repeat, US tax dollars helped set up those voting systems in many countries.

No doubt that our election of 2020 was rife with fraud. We do not know the final result. This fraud had, as noted, been planned well in advance. We now see a gaga, corrupt, lying, delusional, sexual predator, old fool, Joe "Beijing" Biden, running around with a cardboard sign that reads "Office of the President-Elect"--there is no such office--giving garbled press conferences in which he thinks he's not just President-elect but President. Surely those around him must know--do know--that he is not-President elect, much less President, and that, of this writing, NOT ONE state has been officially called for either candidate. The electoral vote total, therefore, is 0 to 0. Would be funny, except it is not.

The media are lying and trying by all means possible to have President Trump concede, and to give the Biden presidency an air of inevitability. Don't buy it. This all forms part of the fraud, along with hundreds-of-thousands of fake ballots, destroyed Trump ballots, etc. 

For this our veterans sacrificed so much?

  1. We know it was fraud, but what to do about it? The Democrat master plan also sabotages president Trump should he ultimately remove the most of the fraudulent votes from the counts, and will enough electors. The media is going to whip up riots should he prevail, and spend the next 4 years going on about it.

    1. Salvorhardin, You're undoubtedly correct. I, however, prefer to put up with their riots and crime than let them blackmail us mafia-style into making Harris/Sanders President. As my son says, "Hey, I've got my .45 and I am good shot."

  2. It's been said, and can't think of one, rule the Democrats have put forth or enacted that couldn't be used for fraud in someway.

    Riots can be put down but the country cannot stand if elections are not legitimate.

  3. What to do about it? There's the rub!

    Gramsci's Long March through the educational institutions has been a slow slog -- nearly 3 generations -- but it has been successful. A world in which even the so-called Best & Brightest in the Federal Reserve and the elite universities are uneducated & self-deluded.

    I keep returning to the analogy of Hitler marching his (then-weak) army into the demilitarized Rhineland in 1936 in contravention of the Treaty of Versailles -- and holding his breath, ready to withdraw if the Allies reacted. But the Allies were too weak & divided to do anything. And so the die was cast. It would take years before WWII would break out and much of Europe would be burned to the ground, but that outcome was inevitable once the Good Guys decided to look the other way.

    Will be do any better this time, as Bejing Biden's handlers try to perpetrate blatant electoral fraud? I hope so. If we let this pass, there will never be another honest election, and Gramsci will have won.

    1. GL, You have summed up the conversation I keep having with my sons. This is no ordinary election; this is not about 10% more for this or 10% less for that. This is about the very idea of America, of freedom, of the great western civilization that has brought so much benefit to the world. The commies are making their move quite openly now, no more nice words uttered in mellow tones.

  4. If the vote is fraudulent, then there is no winner and there's no President to be sworn in 1/20/2020. I think that ends the republic?
    Either that, or there are negotiations at the electoral college and congressional level.
    I'm not sure any of this works out for anybody.
    Prove Joe Biden is the winner? Can't? Prove Donald Trump is the winner? Won't be able to do that either.

    Running a bad election results in no outcome.
    I don't know why we can't run a reasonable election here... It's the *one* thing that a democracy has to get right, and we're going to trust it to software written by malcontents?

      From my Facebook post I'm trying to spread the word. please feel free to share the word . . .

      BREAKING - What the Radical Left has been up to- VOTE FRAUD

      Keep the Faith and say a little prayer for POTUS and the patriots fighting this war.

      Do not listen to the media. Use your common sense. The media is in lockstep with the Radical Left to spread disinformation at every turn. The purpose is to is cause disillusionment with the 71 million voters who voted for Trump.

      The media does not call elections. The state representatives of the people do. Why is the media rushing this process? There are clear legal mechanisms to contest voting fraud and errors that may affect the outcome of an election

      There are clear signs of systemic vote fraud. The pattern is very clear. There was no Blue Wave. There was a landside Red Wave. Why did the votes for down the ticker races that went for Republicans did not translate into votes for Trump?

      Dominion Co vote tally machines used in many locations running Dominion software has so many holes that can be exploited that software would barely would hold water. These machines ARE NOT AIR WALLED as claimed to be. They are connected to the internet.

      Coupled with Hammer and Sportcard software the electronic vote tallies can be flipped both internally and externally at will. No real ballots are required Actual vote fraud with real ballots is a distraction. Hammer and Sportcard are CIA assets that are in the wild.

      This fraud is of massive proportions. This is a great threat to our constitutional republic. These actions were carried out by operatives of the Deep State, the Radical Left and the Globalists

  8. I voted in Iowa and they way we do it there is 0 chance I can actually know my vote was counted. they check who I am and check me off a list and then give me a ballot I mark and feed into a machine but at no point am I tied to the ballot. Not the best system but we did reelect trump so there is that.

  10. Yes, even if Biden loses in a way they still win....because their followers are now convinced that he won since the media has declared Biden the winner. The riots will be even worse than they would have been had Trump been declared the victor on Election Night (as I believe he should have been). And, they are still only one election away from being able to assume control over all the levers of power. Even if Trump prevails, there MUST be electoral reform or we will go through this mess again and again and again. This is one battle -- a very significant one -- in an ongoing war.

    1. Speaking of which, Sarah, this just in/ was reported on the nightly news from Tallahassee tonight:

      "Gov. Ron DeSantis has drafted “anti-mob” legislation that would expand Florida’s Stand Your Ground law — a move that critics say will allow armed citizens to shoot suspected looters or anyone engaged in “criminal mischief” that disrupts a business."

      Looks like the GOP majority FL Lesilature will be taking this up in the next session -- not a minute too soon, in my considered opinion! If passed, I won't have to be overly concerned about defending my life, or other precious lives, against Riotus Criminal Thugs - Think I'll celebrate and buy a Desantis holster!

  12. Dear Diplomad, it's not only very poor countries that count votes that way, down here in Australia we still pretty much do it the same way (don't use faxes anymore!). Many years ago I was in charge of a polling station for our conservative party and also acted as one of the scrutineers when the votes were counted at that polling station. We kept our own tally of the votes and phoned it in to party headquarters, disputed votes were set aside to be decided on by a state electoral commission official. Also each state has it's own Electoral commission which oversees the state election, and an Australian Electoral Commission which oversees the Federal elections, there is absolutely no political party influence at all regarding these commissions.

  14. A path other than recounts, is via the 12th Amendment. SCOTUS can invalidate an election with evidence of widespread fraud. The 12th then has the House elect the POTUS, with one vote per state delegation. The GOP outnumbers Dem delegations 26-23, so Trump would be re-elected.

  16. While I realize the post is still mostly election focussed, I want to ask about commerce and Veterans/Armistice/Remembrance day is the US.
    As a child and teen,I remember stores advertising for Halloween, then stopping any ads until after the 11th(except for the few ads about the 11th). Then on the 12th the run up to Christmas began.
    I really thought this 11 day void of commercialism showed the respect for veterans they truly deserved.
    For the last 30 years, it's been a dive into Christmas ads beginning about 2100 on Oct. 31. Sure lots of businesses put up ads in favour of veterans, even as they promote sales!
    I've been upset and appalled by this rampant commercialism for sometime.
    Again wondering if this is the norm elsewhere, and does it upset others....or am I just that "get off my lawn guy" that I seem to have become i. most other areas of my life?
