The short version:
… there is no “going back”, only forward and/or through.
It’s not that the Left is “all knowing and powerful” in relation or in comparison to the Right; it’s that there is no Right. The House and Senate have maybe a handful or two of Patriots, regardless of their D/R/I party status, who represent America. The remainder, the Left and the Right, dnc and gop, Democrats and Republicans are a uniparty. Two wings of the same bird, flying in the same direction. They work together, as PARTNERS IN CRIME, only conflict on camera to deliver kabuki theater, and enjoy happy hour and back-slapping together after 4pm EST. I worked in the Hart Senate Building for a Senator and witnessed this first hand.
Authoritarians who have insinuated themselves in Congress and the bureaucracy of the federal gov choreographed Jan 6 to create the narrative that an insurrection took place, and to instill fear in the public. Nancy personally denied staffing requests for police and national guard. Capital police let “tourists” into one side of the building and scuffled with “intruders” on the other.
Reps and Senators were fearful, truly scared though, because they didn’t know how far Americans would go. It wasn’t an insurrection, arms were left at home and no intent to harm or remove the rancid politicians existed among 99% of the people that day. Some believe that’s very unfortunate. The scene was perfectly set for photos, though, ready to be captioned, and the media only allowed one version of the story to be told.
Authoritarians wanted something they could control and spin happen, and with pAntifa and FBI actors in the mix, they got it. They’re lucky people weren’t there for an insurrection. Here and now in AZ, local authoritarians working with federal partners during and after the 2022 election fraud likely want their own version of Jan 6… a large but manageable crowd/showing/protest, with a sprinkle of violence, that they can spin as “crazy conspiracy right wingers”, or the “reason we need to become a police state.” They seek a ready-made justification for future acts.
Maybe nothing happens. Maybe they get what they want and manipulate the public with it. Maybe they get more than they asked for, and it starts a chain reaction … all over the country.
My crystal ball broke a while back, so I don’t know.
What we do know as of 11/28/22 is the election was a fraud. Republicans running the Board of Supervisors in Maricopa County know it, are accomplices to it, benefitted from it, and are arrogantly gaslighting the country about it. We know Cochise County BOS are honest enough to refuse to certify the election, and other counties’ supervisors admitted they only certified under duress, being threatened with class six felonies and arrest.
We know the 2020 election was stolen. We know the Rasmussen poll showed 84% of election workers have no confidence in the elections in Maricopa County – it was a debacle. You can’t have democracy or a republic when confidence breaks down to this extent – and you can’t justify that the Secretary of State did not recuse herself and instead ran the election she was running in.
The following (text between bars) is a brief summary from Just the News:
Following the 2020 presidential election, the Arizona state Senate conducted an audit of the presidential election, which flagged a large number of voters who potentially voted in Maricopa and at least one other county in the state. It said 5,295 voters cast ballots in Maricopa and at least one other county using “the same first, middle, last name and birth year.”
CyberNinja, the cyber security firm that conducted the audit, also raised serious questions about the possible deletion of data from Maricopa County’s election computers.
A separate review of Maricopa County’s mail ballots in the 2020 election found that more than 200,000 ballots with signatures did not match voter files and were counted without being reviewed.
During the 2022 midterm election, Maricopa County experienced numerous issues with election machines, from printers that print ballots to ballot scanners. Eleven Republican roving attorneys visited 115 out of the 223 vote centers in Maricopa County as observers on Election Day and found that 72 of them (62.6% of the visted sites) “had material problems with the tabulators not being able to tabulate ballots, causing voters to either deposit their ballots into box 3, spoil their ballots and re-vote, or get frustrated and leave the vote center without voting,” according to a report compiled from their observations by Mark Sonnenklar, a roving attorney with the Republican National Committee’s Election Integrity program in Arizona.
The Arizona attorney general’s office raised concerns regarding the administration of the Nov. 8 election in Maricopa County in a Nov. 19 letter to the county attorney’s office inquiring into the widespread irregularities reported in the county on Election Day.
On Sunday, the county replied to the letter, saying that it followed the law on Election Day and the election problems were “regrettable.” However, the county maintained that “every lawful voter was still able to cast his or her ballot.”
Bullshit. Thousands of lawful voters were still standing in line when the polls closed, and thousands more were disenfranchised throughout the day, unable to vote at multiple locations, and even more had their ballots commingled with already tabulated ballots, with Zero chain of custody records.
Arizona citizens are enraged. They are not being represented by their chosen representatives in office, and are unable to choose new representatives, as their votes dont matter.
