ELDER PATRIOT – With internal polls from both the Trump and Clinton presidential campaigns indicating Donald Trump is heading towards a landslide victory in November, there’s simply no way to reconcile them with polls showing Hillary Clinton tied or ahead that the mainstream media have been touting.  It’s hard to fathom that the candidate with the highest negatives in the history of presidential politics, who also is considered untrustworthy and dishonest by two-thirds of the electorate, could be leading anybody for anything.

The only possible explanation is that the “fix” is in to hand Hillary Clinton the victory in a rigged election and that what we’re looking at now is the construction of a glide path towards believability.

Every Con employs the same strategies, develop a plan, sell the con, and finally commit the crime.  The following is Hillary’s plan to steal the election.

In January, Gallup ran the following headline:  “Democrats, Republicans Agree on Four Top Issues for Campaign.”  These were terrorism and national security, the economy, employment and jobs, and healthcare and the Affordable Care Act. 

All are legitimate issues and the campaign season was going to see the Republican Party place a high priority on fixing government and addressing the deficit, again.  The Democratic Party was gearing up to run on climate change and inequality, again.  By controlling the issues of debate Clinton was a virtual shoo-in to become president ahead of any of the sixteen milquetoast Republican governors and senators who had declared their candidacy.

Then along came Donald Trump. Had it not been for Donald Trump the issues of this campaign would have been the same recycled arguments about problems the political establishments of both parties had decades to resolve and have done nothing about.

Trump soared in the polls by demanding the issues of immigration and trade be given primary importance, issues that the elites in both parties had conspired to keep silent as they were preparing to distract us from the most significant cause of our economic and security woes. 

Trump’s bombastic personality allowed him to command the news cycle of every mainstream outlet.  The MSM gladly gave Trump the space in the hope that he would hang with his politically incorrect approach.  All that coverage instead succeeded in awakening people to how both parties had manipulated the debate for the benefit of their biggest donors.

The elites’ con was in trouble.

Yesterday came confirmation that this election has been distilled down to the elites versus working Americans when Paul Ryan was given a standing ovation at the Koch Brothers’ gathering of 400 of the uber rich.  Not surprisingly the only issues that Ryan and Trump cannot find common ground on are…immigration and trade.  These two issues separate the most popular Republican presidential candidate in nominating history from securing the support of House Speaker Ryan and the billionaire donor class.

Of all the candidates only Trump has had taken the backs of working Americans as he explained how both immigration and bad trade deals were the most significant causes of the security and economic woes that face everyday Americans, the people who don’t live in walled estates, have private security forces, and who don’t benefit from their ownership of the one-sided trade deals.

As much as the elites have defined Donald Trump as their enemy, the average American who trudges to work everyday as well as those who have seen their work shipped overseas or across our southern border, have found a voice in Trump’s positions on trade and immigration.  And they have found a champion in the man himself because despite relentless attacks on his character and the positions he holds, he remains strident in the peoples’ defense.

Now a poll that was commissioned by Breitbart News Network and conducted by the non-partisan research firm Gravis Marketing shows Donald Trump’s message is resounding with a vast majority of Americans

The findings explain why the internal polling of both campaigns show Trump with a sizable lead that is growing.  Breitbart reported the result:

By a nearly 6 to 1 margin, U.S. voters believe immigration should be decreased rather than increased.

By a 25-to-1 margin, voters believe that unemployed American workers should get preference for a U.S. job rather than a foreign worker brought in from another country.

Sixty one percent of voters believe that any politician, “who would rather import foreign workers to take jobs rather than give them to current U.S. residents, is unfit to hold office.”

Three out of four voters believe the nation needs “an immigration system that puts American workers first, not an immigration system that serves the demands of donors seeking to reduce labor costs.”

Roughly three out of four voters— including nearly three out of four Democrat voters— believe that “instead of giving jobs and healthcare to millions of refugees from around the world, we should rebuild our inner cities and put Americans back to work.” 

Donald Trump’s broad appeal crosses party lines is reminiscent of Ronald Reagan and the Reagan Democrats.  Yet the polls being reported by the mainstream media tell a completely different story.  This is the point where the perpetrators of every con resort to their fallback position when challenged, deny, deny, deny.  It’s critical that they keep the con alive as long as possible.

Long time Democratic pollster Pat Caddell analyzed the internals of one recent poll that had shown Trump with a commanding lead at the beginning of this week only to be re-released later in the week showing Clinton with a strong lead. 

Caddell had this to say after studying both releases of the same poll:  They not only changed their formula, to put Hillary ahead, they went back and changed the results, for a week of results where Trump was ahead, and then they turned those into Hillary leads.  They also erased all the former polling off the site. They didn’t tweak their procedure – they cooked it.  Never in my life have I seen a news organization, and a supposedly reputable poll, do something so dishonest.”

Veteran poll watchers like Pat Caddell are aware that something improper is afoot.  The only possible explanation for “reputable” news sources to commit disreputable acts is to affect public perception.  The only reason for virtually every news source to violate the standard code of ethics for reporting is that they’re part of distorting the narrative that describes the coming election.

But to fix an election requires more than simply lying to the people about the outcomes of polling data.  It requires “rigging” voting machines.  This investigative report uncovers evidence that it has been happening in U.S. elections for some time.  The report also contains this video of a witness explaining the methods he’s used previously to a congressional subcommittee:\

The technology to “fix” elections exists and “fixing” is made easier through the use of closed source technology that Microsoft employs.  Brian Fagioli explained in, “Closed source technologies from companies like Microsoft could, in theory, contain backdoors or vulnerabilities that hackers and evildoers could exploit.  Even worse, Microsoft or its employees could purposely alter voting software to influence outcomes… with closed source software, there is no way to know for sure.”

But Hillary won’t settle for simply rigging the machines her people can get to.

She has ordered the Democrats to register 3,000,000 new voters even if that requires registering illegal aliens, ex-convicts, and the mentally infirm living in senior care facilities.  We mustn’t forget their usual strategy of spreading street money around for organizers to drive the homeless and volunteers to multiple polling centers with instruction telling them which name to vote under at each site.

The Democrats’ efforts to flood the voting booths with illegal voters this fall got a huge boost in July when Democrat appointed Judges in North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin overturned legislative attempts to impose the presentation of an ID in order to verify the right of a particular person to vote.

In all of these cases liberal judges have decided that certain people are so indigent and/or so incompetent that asking them to procure an ID represents an un-American burden.  Of course no one mentions that accessing federal benefit programs requires an even greater effort.  Nor do they seek to remedy the problem of supplying ID’s by ordering the funding of a program that would bring the verification process directly to the people.  It’s clear that the Democrats do not want to fix anything because the existing fraudulent system has served them well.

The fix may be in but Donald Trump is well aware of what’s going on and is meeting with his top advisors and election experts to determine a plan to prevent the theft of our democracy.  Everyone should be prepared to do whatever is necessary to preserve the integrity of our vote whether your support Trump or not, lest one day you’ll find yourself without a voice against a government you do disapprove of.  The cost to restore democracy at that time will be much more expensive.
