Continuity Follows All US Elections
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Whenever US presidential and congressional elections are held, continuity always triumphs.
Names and faces alone change, the fundamental direction of the country doesn’t miss a bit.
Presidents are figurehead fronts for imperial governance of, by, and for privileged interests at the expense of world peace, stability, equity, justice and rule of law.
Empires demand everything, yield nothing, ordinary people exploited, not served — at home and abroad, notably in occupied countries.
Elections when held are farcical, not legitimate, popular sentiment ignored by powerful interests in charge.
In the US, it’s by one-party rule with two right wings, each taking turns running things.
On issues relating to war and peace, corporate empowerment, plutocracy and kleptocracy over democracy, police state harshness, and erosion of fundamental freedoms en route to eliminating them altogether — both wings of the one-party state are on the same page.
So are establishment media, most think tanks, academia, and the clergy.
Trump largely differed from other US presidents in style.
Throughout his tenure, he delivered hugely for wealth and power interests, ordinary Americans getting neoliberal harshness.
If Election 2020 vote-counting was accurate, not dishonest in key swing states, he won. Biden/Harris lost.
Instead it appears the other way around — proving once again that hypocrisy, not democracy, defines the American way.
It’s not the first time US elections at the federal, state, and local levels were stolen and won’t be the last.
Throughout US history, it happened repeatedly since the early days of the republic.
In 2020, deep state interests — or at least a US ruling class majority — favored Biden/Harris over the incumbent president, based on how things turned out with fourth estate support.
Whatever US dark forces want, they get.
Despite hard evidence of significant election fraud in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania favoring Biden/Harris over Trump — likely in Arizona, Georgia and Nevada as well — his legal challenges are likely to fail.
In 2016, US dark forces chose him over Hillary, perhaps by a split decision in his favor.
This year it’s the other way around.
With help from establishment media propaganda for Biden/Harris, deep state elements turned on the hands that fed them — choosing a Dem executive branch over the current one.
Most often, winning US presidents gain House and Senate seats, the so-called coattails effect.
While control of the upper body this time remains undecided (pending 2 runoff races), Republicans will likely to hold a slim majority when the dust settles.
Dems maintain control of the House but lost at least a net five seats, possibly more.
Pre-election, the Cook Political Report predicted a “10 to 15” gain in House seats by Dems.
Post-election, it admitted that Republicans are “on track to pick up between five and ten seats in the House.”
Looking ahead, Dems will likely control the executive branch and House by a lesser majority, Republicans controlling the Senate.
Because of large-scale pre-dawn vote dumps last Wednesday in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania — 100% for Biden, zero percent for Trump — Dems stole victories won by DJT.
Grand theft decided the election outcome — along with establishment media support — not popular sentiment.
As one analyst observed about a reported 89.3% Wisconsin voter turnout (30% higher than ever in state history), it was “a virtual statistical impossibility,” adding:
“The odds of this occurring are 0.00000189% or 1 in 52,910,052.”
James Fetzer reported the above information on his website, adding:
“Election officials in Michigan and Wisconsin could not explain (Dem) presidential nominee Joe Biden’s sudden and dramatic vote tally increase that occurred in both states (pre-dawn) Wednesday morning.”
In Dem strongholds New York and Chicago, Biden got less support than Hillary in 2016, while carrying NY state and Illinois.
Yet in key swing states, “he gained massively,” according to AP News.
On the stump campaigning pre-election, Trump drew huge crowds of supporters.
Turnout at Biden rallies was far less.
As reported on Fetzer’s website, “Trump let by almost 800,000 votes on election night” in Pennsylvania.
By Friday, it was less than 95,000. Last weekend, Biden was “project(ed) (to) carry the state by about 175,000 votes.”
In one Michigan county (Antrim) Trump won by 30 points in 2016, he lost to Biden by 29 points — possible only by election fraud.
Post-election, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was quoted, saying the following:
“In big cities where they control the political apparatus and they control the apparatus that counts the votes, and they control the polling places, and the ones who count the votes.”
“It’s widespread and it’s deep” — including votes cast by former state residents and deceased ones added to the count.
According to Judicial Watch, 352 US counties in 29 states have around 1.8 million more registered voters than residents of voting age.
Seven Milwaukee, Wisconsin wards had more votes cast than registered voters.
As Fetzer noted on his website, reliable evidence shows that Election 2020 was stolen for Biden/Harris over Trump.
US dark forces engineer regime change at home as abroad.
What they want, US courts, including the High Court, are highly unlikely to overturn.
As things now stand, Biden will be inaugurated US president on January 20, 2021 — even though if vote-counting was accurate, he lost. Trump won.
Looking ahead, the nation is sharply divided.
Geopolitically, Biden/Harris are likely to be more belligerent than Trump.
Obama bragged about bombing seven countries in eight years.
Something similar may follow over the next four years.
All nations independent of US control will continue being treated as adversaries.
Biden/Harris reportedly will demand unacceptable concessions from Iran for the US to rejoin the landmark JCPOA nuclear deal.
They’ll likely include curbs on Iran’s legitimate missile development, perhaps other military-related concessions as well, wanting the Islamic Republic weakened — what its ruling authorities surely won’t accept.
US relations with China and Russia will likely remain strained — the same likely true toward Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, and North Korea.
Perhaps more US forces will be sent to Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq instead of withdrawing them altogether.
With likely protracted economic collapse affecting the US economy and majority of its people — along with a divided Congress — Biden/Harris may focus more on geopolitical issues where bipartisan consensus is likely.
Never one to be silent publicly, Trump may leave the political scene in January, but Trumpism will remain active — by him and his millions of supporters.
Looking ahead for ordinary Americans, things will likely worsen over the next four years, not improve under conditions of protracted economic collapse and hardline rule.
The nation I grew up in long ago no longer exists.
