the game is rigged...

game

 


the donald's view...

The president has refused to concede the presidential race, saying that this year's election was rigged by Democrats in favour of Joe Biden, citing, apart from everything else, that preliminary results showed he was leading in several states, which were later taken by Biden.

US President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to declare that the Constitution should be protected from those responsible for alleged violations during the election, as he said that "large numbers" of poll observers were "thrown out of vote counting rooms in many of our States," and that millions of ballots were altered by the Democrats. His tweets were immediately flagged and labelled by the social media platform as being a "disputed claim" regarding alleged voter fraud in the presidential election.

Why does the Fake News Media continuously assume that Joe Biden will ascend to the Presidency, not even allowing our side to show, which we are just getting ready to do, how badly shattered and violated our great Constitution has been in the 2020 Election. It was attacked,..

....owned Dominion Voting Systems, turned down by Texas and many others because it was not good or secure, those responsible for the safeguarding of our Constitution cannot allow the Fake results of the 2020 Mail-In Election to stand. The World is watching!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 16, 2020

Previously, he shared in a tweet that major lawsuits are coming to show the "unconstitutionality of the 2020 election". Trump also said that many of the lawsuits concerning suggested irregularities have been filed not by his administration, but by Americans who witnessed "horrible abuses".

Many of the court cases being filed all over the Country are not ours, but rather those of people that have seen horrible abuses. Our big cases showing the unconstitutionality of the 2020 Election, & the outrage of things that were done to change the outcome, will soon be filed!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 15, 2020

In a tweet several hours earlier, Trump said, "[Biden] won because the Election was Rigged", spurring a lot of fuss on social media, with netizens wondering if he had conceded. However, the president clarified later in another tweet that he has conceded nothing, suggesting he will continue the legal battle against what he calls election fraud.

Vote Counting Continues

Though the presidential election took place almost two weeks ago, the final outcome is still to be announced, since all states have to certify their election results. As of today, major US media outlets project Democrat Biden as the president-elect. The former vice president in the Obama administration has already claimed victory in the presidential race, outlining his "first steps in office" and picking the new White House chief of staff.

While Biden has already held phone conversations with several leaders, he is not receiving daily intelligence briefings, which has fuelled complaints from his team. His transition aide Jen Psaki has said that the team wants to "get access to intelligence information" so that they can "prepare to govern".

However, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said earlier this week that it will not contact Biden's transition team until the General Services Administration ascertains Biden as the likely president-elect.

'Rigged' Election

Trump has so far refused to concede, saying that this year's election saw massive fraud and voter irregularities. The president cited witness accounts of false ballots cast, dead people voting, possible machine system glitches, adding that Republican observers were not allowed to watch vote counting. He has also argued that on the night of Election Day, polls in several key states showed him winning, but the situation changed in a few hours to show Biden ahead.

"He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!", Trump tweeted earlier on Sunday.

There is tremendous evidence of wide spread voter fraud in that there is irrefutable proof that our Republican poll watchers and observers were not allowed to be present in poll counting rooms. Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and others. Unconstitutional!

Be prepared for more crap...

 

There is no evidence of vote tampering. This does not mean there hasn't been any, but without evidence to present in courts the Donald is playing a losing game.

the mainstream media won't go there...

...

Joe Biden has claimed recently that “a Biden-Harris Administration will not be measured just by the stock market or GDP growth, but by the extent to which growth is raising the pay, dignity, and economic security of our working families” — while at the same time welcoming millions of new immigrants and legalizing the ~20M+ illegals into the workforce.

 

The American economy is in fact extremely unlikely to change direction, with Biden reassuring his billionaire donors gathered at the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan in June 2019 that “no one’s standard of living will change, nothing would fundamentally change.” I believe him. Biden was part of an administration that looked on as 10 million working Americans lost their homes. Matt Stoller at the Washington Post has described Obama-era Democrat economic policies as “in effect, a wholesale attack on the American home (the main store of middle-class wealth) in favor of concentrated financial power.” Biden was part of a team that outright rejected prosecuting major bankers for fraud and money laundering, and that represented one of the most monopoly-friendly administrations in history:


2015 saw a record wave of mergers and acquisitions, and 2016 was another busy year. In nearly every sector of the economy, from pharmaceuticals to telecom to Internet platforms to airlines, power was concentrated. And this administration, like George W. Bush’s before it, did not prosecute a single significant monopoly under Section 2 of the Sherman Act. Instead [under Obama] the Federal Trade Commission has gone after such villains as music teachers and ice skating instructors for ostensible anti-competitive behavior. This is very much a parallel of the financial crisis, as elites operate without legal constraints while the rest of us toil under an excess of bureaucracy.

 

Biden is the product of funding from forty-four billionaires, including six hedge fund speculators, seven real estate barons, and five in the tech sector. Of the top 22 donors, at least 18 are Jews (Jim Simons, Len Blavatnik, Stewart Resnick, Eli Broad, Neil Bluhm, David Bonderman, Herb Simon, Daniel Och, Liz Lefkovsky, Steve Mandel, Bruce Karsh, Howard Marks, S. Daniel Abraham, Marc Lasry, Jonathan Tisch, Daniel Lubetsky, Laurie Tisch, and Robert Toll). The Jewish consortium behind Biden is almost identical in its financial composition to that behind Trump which, as I’ve explained previously, was notable for its embodiment of “usury and vulture capitalism, bloated consumerism, and the sordid commercial exploitation of vice.” Biden’s transition team, meanwhile, is comprised of “executives from Lyft, Airbnb, Amazon, Capital One, Booz Allen, Uber, Visa, and JPMorgan.” In short, expectations that Biden is going to break up Big Tech, or any monopoly for that matter, are the fantasies of the deluded, the ignorant, and the duped.

 

 

Conclusion


While the drama and recrimination surrounding the election are unquestionably fascinating, I hope you’ll forgive for being less agitated than most. My reasons for lethargy are simple: I knew that regardless of outcome we’d get four more years — four more years of Zionism, GloboHomo, and the standardized, rationalized machinery of economic escalation that now provides the apologetic engine for mass migration. Behind the abortion debates, Supreme Court picks, culture wars, and media theater, these are the non-negotiables of the System. You don’t hear about them, and you can’t talk about them, because you can’t vote on them. And this is the biggest electoral fraud of all.

Note at the top of his article, Andrew Joyce, (rightwing writter?) Ph.D., quotes two French philosopher:

 

All our political forms are exhausted and practically nonexistent. Our parliamentary system and electoral system and our political parties are just as futile as dictatorships are intolerable. Nothing is left. And this nothing is increasingly aggressive, totalitarian and omnipresent.


Jacques Ellul, Anarchy and Christianity (1991)

 

Look at them! Look at them, will you? Behold our politicians’ horrible languid maws!; the courtier-like faces of department managers. They are indeed salesmen, for the very power of nations is measure in relation to their own mercantile activity.

Jean Cau was famous for having abandoned JP Sartre and gone as far right as one could go in "those" days without breaking windows, but attacking other thinkers (of the left). Meanwhile, Jacques Ellul was more of a renegade Christian anarchist. He is most famous for this quote:

 

"No longer are we surrounded by fields, woods, and rivers, but by signs, signals, billboards, screens, labels, and trademarks: this is our universe."

 

 

glitches to make trump lose?...

Earlier on Monday, President Donald Trump claimed he had "won the 2020 election", also publishing a series of tweets, in which he lambasted "radical left-owned Dominion voting systems". Although the official tally from the election is yet to be announced, Joe Biden has declared himself US president-elect.

The US president's attorney, Sidney Powell, has called for CIA Director Gina Haspel to be fired for disregarding warnings about voting software that Powell claimed was "designed to rig" the 3 November election.

"Why Gina Haspel is still there in the CIA is beyond my comprehension. She should be fired immediately", Powell told Fox News on Sunday, pointing to alleged problems with Dominion Voting Systems' software used in several of the key battleground states during Election Day.

She referred to an array of "whistleblowers" who she said may confirm that the Dominion software was ostensibly used to scrap "millions" of votes cast in favour of Trump.

When asked about evidence, Powell claimed that she had "lots of ways to prove it", but that she was "not gonna tell on national TV what all we have".

Her remarks echoed those made by President Donald Trump in his latest series of tweets, in which he specifically criticised what he described as "radical left-owned Dominion Voting Systems", also insisting that the US "cannot allow the fake results of the 2020 mail-in election to stand".

This followed the president tweeting that Joe Biden won "because the election was rigged", adding in a follow-up post that he "concedes nothing", as the Democratic contender only won "in the eyes of [the] fake news media".

purging the pentagon...

Donald Trump isn’t just playing golf, he is purging the Pentagon

by Thierry Meyssan

In the midst of the presidential election results, President Donald Trump undertook to purge the Pentagon of the rebel leaders. The first target was the Secretary of Defense, who kept lying to hide the real objectives of the general officers.


Once the presidential election is over, the tenant of the White House has only the right to manage the day-to-day business. But just before the Federal Election Commission announced the results of the election, President Donald Trump began an unprecedented cleanup of the Pentagon.


The U.S. press, always busy portraying him as an incompetent narcissist, does not seem to think this is important. It presents him as playing golf.


However, he dismissed: 

- Secretary of Defense Mark Esper (replaced by Christopher Miller); 

- his chief of staff, Jen Stewart (replaced by Kash Patel); 

- the Director of Defense Policy, James Anderson (replaced by Anthony Tata); 

- Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Joseph Kernan (replaced by Ezra Cohen-Watnick); and 

- Nato Liaison Officer Michael Ryan (replaced by Andrew Winternitz)


This movement of personnel is easy to interpret: since the announcement by the major media of an undivided victory of Joe Biden, the confessions of high-ranking civil servants recounting the way they sabotaged years of Jacksonian politics have multiplied [1] The ousted officials are suspected of covering them and even plotting to overthrow President Trump. On the contrary, the senior officials promoted are loyal to the current president and all share the conviction of close ties between the Clinton and Obama presidencies and the Muslim Brotherhood.


It may seem far-fetched to talk about a foreign secret society in connection with the US presidential election. This is not the case, however.


Kash Patel would have pushed this reshuffle. Former assistant to Devin Nunes’ representative on the Intelligence Committee, he had played a role in demonstrating the surveillance of Donald Trump by the Obama administration and in Russiagate’s ineptitude [2]. He was then appointed Deputy Assistant to President Trump and Director of Counterterrorism at the National Security Council. Of Indian origin, he knows the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in the organization of Islamist attacks.


The new Secretary of Defense is the former director of the Counterterrorism Center, Colonel Christopher Miller. One can therefore assume that he has a thorough knowledge of the Muslim Brotherhood nebula.


The new Director of Defence Policy is Brigadier General Anthony Tata. A former commentator for Fox News, he has several times accused President Obama and the Clintons of being the chief terrorists of jihadist networks. Carried away by his momentum, he also accused the former director of the CIA, John O. Brennan, of having hatched an assassination attempt on President Trump, which turned out to be defamatory (but not the first claim). He will be assisted by Thomas Williams, a former member of the National Security Council who was trained by Zbigniew Brzezinski.


The new Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security is Ezra Cohen-Watnick. He is a former member of General Michael Flynn’s Military Intelligence team that fought against the Muslim Brotherhood in the field. He has a reputation for refusing political compromises.


The new head of Europe and NATO is Andrew Winternitz. This Japanese political scientist has already been in charge of France at the Pentagon for several years. He is the only member of the new team who has not had to fight against the Brotherhood.


This upheaval came very late: for four years, Pentagon officials did everything they could to avoid applying President Trump’s instructions and prolong the conflicts. Trump had given them a great deal of leeway, which allowed them to act in other areas without fear of a military coup d’état. In recent months, however, the general officers have increasingly shown their willingness to use the health crisis to keep all politicians, including President Trump, out of the public arena; an attitude in total contradiction to the troops’ support for the Jacksonian president.


Clearly, the positions of the various parties vis-à-vis the Muslim Brotherhood were a criterion for this reshuffle. Given the close ties of the Obama (President Barack and his half-brother Abon’go Malik) and Clinton (President Bill and Secretary of State Hillary) families to the Brotherhood [3], everything suggests that these events are linked to the current institutional crisis in the United States....

the DoD had betrayed the president...

 

by Barbara Boland

 

Hawks are screeching about a series of high profile firings and resignations that occurred at the Pentagon last week, seeing in the personnel moves a dark portent of a possible coup by the Trump administration. The dismissals are “nefarious… decapitations,” according to The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin; while journalist Mona Charen dubbed the high-profile resignations a “purge.”

“The president is burning down the Department of Defense in the midst of a presidential transition, which in my experience is unprecedented in American history,” said Eric Edelman, former under secretary of defense and ambassador to Turkey.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper was summarily dismissed last Monday by tweet. Several other top Pentagon hands swiftly followed Esper out the door: his chief of staff, Jen Stewart, Lisa Gordon-Hagerty, head of the National Nuclear Security Administration, James Anderson, the acting undersecretary of defense for policy, and Vice Adm. Joseph Kernan, undersecretary of defense for intelligence. In addition, Trump is reportedly considering firing CIA Director Gina Haspel and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Esper’s firing represents “a dangerous day” for American national security, according to Kevin Baron, executive editor of Defense One. Baron says the secretaries of the Army, Navy, and Air Force were “blindsided” by Esper’s departure, and that the Joint Chiefs of Staff were unprepared for his removal.

It’s not just their removal that has the national security establishment up in arms.

The named replacements are anathema to the military-industrial establishment, particularly Senate-rejected retired Army General Anthony Tata, who has a history of Islamophobic comments, as top Pentagon policy official, former aide to retired Gen. Michael Flynn Ezra Cohen-Watnick as acting Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, and retired Army Col. Doug Macgregor, a tireless advocate to end America’s endless wars, as special assistant to Christopher Miller, the new acting Pentagon Chief.

Trump is “planning more wildly irresponsible personnel moves,” writes Bill Kristol. “I remain alarmed.”

Is all this agitation justified? Are Trump’s personnel decisions placing the country in grave danger?

When considering how much an impact firing the Pentagon chief has, it is worth noting that Trump already has had an unprecedented number of people leading the Defense Department. In four years, Trump has had five chiefs.

Here’s how that stacks up historically: President Obama had four Secretaries of Defense in eight years, George W. Bush had two in eight years, Clinton had three in eight years, George Bush Sr. had two in four years, Reagan had two in eight years, and Carter had one in four years.

If the unprecedented turnover at the top of the Pentagon during Trump’s administration was not a threat to national security before, it is hard to imagine why it would be during Trump’s lame-duck.Whatever “danger” or “damage” these commentators imagine Miller can get up to, he has less than 70 days left at the Defense Department.

But there is a deeper reason for the panicked, hair-on-fire response from the establishment.

It turns out the “decapitation” at the Pentagon may have been a very rational, logical response to the DOD’s stonewalling on Trump’s policy objectives.

“Secretary Esper was resisting the president… on a number of policy matters,” Edelman saidsenior sources at the Pentagon told him.

That resistance was particularly sharp when it came to Afghanistan.

Esper had sent a memo to the White House outlining DOD concerns “about a precipitous withdrawal from Afghanistan, including notably the fact that the Taliban hasn’t met the conditions … that needed to be met before a withdrawal could take place.”

Leaving aside how exiting a war that is in its 19th year could be described as “precipitous,” Trump had promised repeatedly over the summer that the U.S. “should” withdraw its troops from Afghanistan by Christmas. In consultation with the Pentagon, a plan was drawn up to reduce the U.S. presence in Afghanistan from roughly 8,000 down to 4,000. White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien has stated that the number will further decrease to 2,500.

However, in an October interview with NPR, Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff Mark Milley contradicted O’Brien, and said that any withdrawal would be condition-based.

The DOD was dragging its feet on Afghanistan because Esper feared a direct presidential order to withdraw, he admits to the Military Times.

Describing the Pentagon’s wait-and-see Afghanistan strategy, Esper said, “Now, if I were the president, I’d say, ‘Really? Here you go. Here’s a written piece of paper. You’re coming home by December.’”

Esper was desperately seeking to avoid just that.

The stalling tactics Esper admits to are reminiscent of the scenes from Bob Woodward and Miles Taylor’s books, where both authors describe Trump’s staff removing memos from his desk in order to redirect his attention and distract him from executing policy they disagreed with.

Esper had reasons to be worried about a direct order to withdraw. The commander-in-chief is completely within his rights to order the military to withdraw from Afghanistan, said Mark Perry, senior analyst with the Quincy Institute, in an interview with The American Conservative. 

Now that Esper is out, Defense One’s executive editor warns that the newly hired “Trump loyalists” could turn “the foundational institutions of U.S. national security… into the personal security services he’s always envisioned them to be.”

Esper says he will be replaced by someone who is “a real ‘yes man.'”

In other words, the Pentagon will be led by someone who agrees with Trump’s desire to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan before the end of his presidency.

In a memo, acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller outlined his goals:

“This is the critical phase in which we transition our efforts from a leadership to supporting role. We are not a people of perpetual war — it is the antithesis of everything for which we stand and for which our ancestors fought. All wars must end.”

Exactly a week after Esper was unceremoniously dismissed, the Pentagon issued a notice to commanders to prepare to reduce the number of troops in Afghanistan to 2,500, and to reduce the number of troops in Iraq to 2,500 by January 15.

Despite the dark rumors, Esper and his associates weren’t fired because they failed to assist Trump in a domestic military takeover, or because they were insufficiently loyal and didn’t grovel enough before the person of Donald Trump. The real reason for their dismissal is simple: Esper didn’t think U.S. troops should be removed from Afghanistan by Christmas. Trump disagreed.

The commander in chief has “the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views” are aligned with his own, as former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said. This hardly represents a coup.
