Bankers Saved Democracy by Killing It
February 11, 2021
"a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system's fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures."
Ball calls it the "inside story of the conspiracy to save the 2020 election." Like, as in, a real-life conspiracy - confirmed by the perpetrators themselves for all to read -- that tilted the "free" US presidential election....
How did this happen? Joe Biden finished an abysmal 5th in the New Hampshire and 4th in the Iowa caucuses of 2020, the two crucial earliest states to vote on presidential primary candidates. In late 2019 and early 2020, Biden's campaign was flirting with failure. Most analysts, even friendly ones, agreed it was on the verge of collapse.
So how did a sad two-time presidential election loser like 78-year-old Joe Biden, a rapidly aging white male in an era of über-wokeness, bane of #MeToo, manage to come back from such a huge hole early on?
Biden, in short, is a company man - just the kind of trusted ally that the DNC's donors could turn to in the face of a threatening Bernie Sanders ascendancy and an even more terrifying specter of a possible Trump re-election. Back in January of 2020, both seemed like probable scenarios.
So -- starting at the highest levels with former president Barack Obama orchestrating an emergency power consolidation among the establishment primary candidates -- they turned the gears of the political machinery as only a ruling class with full access to the levers of power can:
"Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump's conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction." ...
The revelations of Molly Ball via Time serve as prima facie evidence that the current government pressing its weight down on the middle and working class is illegitimate. Politicians at the highest levels are the handpicked puppets of the men behind the curtain.
Beyond illegitimate, Joseph Biden and the people who worked so diligently to thwart the democratic process in the 2020 election are criminal. They stole your birthright as an American citizen. This is not consensual governance; this is the Bad Touch.
No means no.
You live in occupied territory.
They beg for summary judgment and the guillotine.
