Mainstream media outfits believe that they have the power to determine the outcome of a US presidential election. Outlets Fox News, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, etc., prematurely declared Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election on Saturday, and Biden is calling himself the president-elect. Both Biden and the news media have created their own alternate reality, but the election is not over in the real world.
As President Trump so aptly pointed out, news outlets do not have the power to declare the winner. States must certify the winner of an election, and no state has done so yet. These news outlets and the Biden campaign need to back off and stop acting like the election is decided. They need to let the legal process work, assuring that every legal vote is counted before they pop the corks.
President Trump, providing leadership in protecting election integrity for the American people, points out that the election is not over until the 50 states certify the winners. He is also pursuing investigations and lawsuits to get to the bottom of voting irregularities and potential fraud in the 2020 election.
The most fundamental problem with the 2020 election is the universal mail-in ballot scheme hatched and pushed relentlessly by the Democrats. President Trump and the Republicans sounded the alarm about potential fraud with universal mail-in voting, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrats pushed kept arguing and demanding all summer the universal mail-in ballot all summer. The Democrats knowingly jeopardized the integrity of the election months before November 4.
Even before the election, mail-in ballots were causing chaos as Pennsylvanians made duplicate requests for ballots, which then had to be rejected, causing concern that the state would not be able to certify their election results by the December 8 deadline.
US postal worker whistleblowers from Pennsylvania have reported that ballots that received on November 4th were backdated to November 3rd to count them.
Besides mail-in voting, tabulation software and poll workers have also drawn attention. Dominion Voting software “glitches” in at least one Michigan county flipped votes for President Trump over to Biden. Tabulation software in Georgia rejected 160,000 ballots for adjudication. Poll workers in Detroit barred observers from watching the vote counting.
Irregularities and illegal activity characterize the elections in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and other states. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich in a call for Attorney General Barr to get involved, put it this way, “The Philadelphia machine is corrupt. The Atlanta machine is corrupt. The machine in Detroit is corrupt. And they are trying to steal the presidency. And we should not allow them to do that.”
