ELDER PATRIOT – Donald Trump was the only candidate to question the veracity of our elections. When he did President Obama crucified him for doing so as if he was a conspiracy nut
Obama: “Of course the elections will not be rigged…If Mr. Trump is suggesting that there is a conspiracy theory being propagated across the country…that’s ridiculous. Now we do take seriously, as we always do, our responsibilities to monitor and preserve the integrity of the voting process. If we see signs that a voting machine or system is vulnerable to hacking then we inform those local authorities who run the elections that they need to be careful.”
The Obama administration took those responsibilities seriously. Homeland Security Jeh Johnson told the Christian Science Monitor: “I believe that it’s the responsibility of those of in national security and homeland security when a leading candidate for office proposes something that is irresponsible, probably illegal, unconstitutional and contrary to international law, un-American, and will actually hurt our efforts at homeland security and national security, we have to speak out.”
Johnson concluded that, “We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid.”
Fast forward to today when Norm Ornstein is calling for the 2016 elections to be invalidated and emergency Continuity of Government procedures to be implemented.
Ornstein has chosen to ignore the fact that there is even a single shred of evidence yet uncovered to support the claim that the 2016 presidential election was “stolen” by “Russian hackers” and has proceeded to advancing the narrative along to the next step.
“…If the election had been stolen, Pence’s place as president would be no more legitimate than that of Trump. After Pence – Paul Ryan, the speaker, followed by Orrin Hatch, the president pro tem, followed by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.”
“If voters’ collective desires were subverted by foreign interference and a party’s collusion, none would have a legitimate claim — especially since the control of the Senate, at least, would have been affected by the Russian role,” Orenstein wrote in the elitist periodical The Atlantic.
Norm Ornstein is a member of the neo-conservative American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research and a respected member of Washington’s intelligentsia.
He was deeply involved in the post 9/11 Continuity of Government Commission and helped craft the McCain-Feingold financial reform act.
This means that the idea of invalidating the presidential election and instituting emergency Continuity of Government provisions while a “special” election is planned has already been seriously discussed among globalists scattered everywhere throughout Washington’s various government think tanks and agencies who are desperate to stop Donald Trump from undoing their life’s work.
As misinformation is the order of the day only one thing is certain. If the Russians did actually hack our elections so that Donald Trump was illegitimately elected right under Obama’s nose while he was looking for it then former President Obama was completely f*cking incompetent.
