Ever since Nov. 3, 2020, the Democrats and their acolytes in the mainstream and social media have tried to shut down any suggestion of impropriety in the election result, going so far as to claim it was “the most secure election in U.S. history.”
However, it was the Democrats who first raised fears that the election was going to be stolen. In early June 2020, Joe Biden appeared on “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah” to claim: “It’s my greatest concern, my single greatest concern. This president is going to try to steal this election.”
This was a clever psychological ploy as, by suggesting that President Donald Trump would have to resort to cheating, it assumed a Democratic victory was inevitable. A CNN poll released at the same time gave Biden a 14-point lead, which the Trump team claimed was also designed “to cause voter suppression.”

In the same interview, conducted five months before the election and two months before receiving the official Democratic National Committee nomination, Biden took the inevitability of his victory one step further by postulating that Trump would refuse to accept defeat.

When Noah asked, “Have you ever considered what would happen if the election result came out as you being the winner and Trump refused to leave?” Biden replied, “Yes, I have, and I was so [expletive] proud—you have four chiefs of staff coming out and ripping the skin off of Trump.”

He added to his violent rhetoric: “And you have so many rank-and-file military personnel saying, ‘Whoa, we’re not a military state, this is not who we are.’ I promise you I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”

Was that sentence a threat as well as an oxymoron?

He knew that the most likely reason for Trump to question the result would be fraud, made possible by the increase in postal voting to prevent people from contracting COVID-19 at polling booths.

Biden also announced on June 30 that he wouldn’t be holding any more campaign rallies because of COVID-19. But how could he and the Democrats have been so confident of victory, five months before the election, while his opponent was still filling stadiums across the country?

As it was, in the three-week run-up to the election, Biden did appear at 23 events in 10 states, while Trump campaigned for 21 straight days, making 48 stops across 15 states, drawing much bigger crowds.

The Democrats’ Election Protectors

Biden pushed the fraud button again on July 1, 2020, when he announced that his campaign had gathered a group of 600 lawyers and more than 10,000 volunteers to go “into every single state to try to figure out whether chicanery is likely to take place,” as he believed Trump would interfere to ensure his victory.

The presidential candidate added that his campaign would “fight any effort to exploit the pandemic for political purposes.” That is, any effort other than using it to promote postal voting, which he knew would help him more than Trump.

The pandemic was precisely the reason that Trump had suggested the election should be delayed, but Congress disagreed. So, too, did Biden, who was more than happy to extend postal voting.

Biden told his audience that his campaign was “in the process of getting into the states in question to train [the volunteers] to be in a polling place.”

That’s 200-plus per state, but what exactly were they being trained to do? Certainly not the normal activities of a party volunteer.

Biden’s July 1 announcement was widely reported, and none in the mainstream media disparaged his claims of fraud, as they, too, shared the belief that Trump would resort to cheating.

Their response, however, was very different when Trump expressed similar fears. Reuters wrote, “For months, President Donald Trump has tried to convince Americans that the Nov. 3 election will be ‘rigged,’ claiming without evidence that mail voting will open the door to mass cheating.”
Following the presidential result, the Democrats claimed 2020 was the fairest election ever. This, despite two Iranian hackers being identified for allegedly trying to affect the result in Alaska and attempting to do the same in 10 other states.

What happened to Biden’s allegations that Trump would interfere in the 2020 result? Are the Democrats now admitting those claims were false?

As to the Russians whom the Democrats falsely claimed had helped Trump to victory in 2016, the FBI claims it took care of their attempts at disinformation this time by warning Mark Zuckerberg and others that the Hunter Biden laptop was fake.

But if that election was the fairest ever, was that due to Biden’s 10,000 volunteers and 600 lawyers? If so, why were they never publicly acknowledged for keeping democracy alive and well in America? Indeed, just what were they doing that night and in the run-up to it?

Did they ever produce a report?
