One of the most moving speeches on Wednesday night of the Republican Convention was given by a man named Sam Vigil. Sam who? This soft-spoken gentleman is not famous and certainly never thought he’d be speaking to the nation, but he came to speak about being touched by crime, as his wife Jackie was killed in their own garage during what was apparently an attempted carjacking.
They lived in Albuquerque, which he said is “one of the most violent cities in the country.” Most homicides go unsolved. In a sad irony, Jackie had immigrated from Colombia, known for violence, to seek a better life in America.
For eight months, the overwhelmed local police made no arrest in Jackie’s murder. But after President Trump launched Operation Legend this July, the FBI took over the case and in just days, they arrested four people, with the fifth arrested later in Texas on unrelated charges. Mr. Vigil thanked Trump for delivering justice for his wife and “for all the other innocent victims of violent crime.”
"I know he will never stop fighting for justice,” Mr. Vigil said, “for law and order, and for peace, security and our communities.”
Watching this in context of all the violence happening around the country, I thought that, more than anything, this election comes down to order and freedom vs. chaos and the resulting loss of freedom. The President wants us to be able to go about our lives in safety, whether it’s from a carjacking in Albuquerque or a vicious assault on the streets of Seattle.
The other side WANTS chaos, as they think that, one way or another, it will keep Trump from another term. But notice that they’re suddenly becoming more subversive about this, saying publicly that they are against violence. This is because polling shows that violence by BLM and other groups appears to be backfiring. Their plan to blame Trump isn’t working.
Even their friends in the media are trying to help, but they blew their own cover, right on the air.
Democrats don’t care how the violence is hurting people, just that it might be hurting then in the POLLS. The practice of going into restaurants and bullying diners is especially not playing well. So even Biden has (finally) come out and said he’s against violence. Even though nobody even brought it up during their convention, he and Kamala Harris will say whatever they need to now.
There are other ways the left thinks chaos can help them ultimately get what they want. For example, they can send the message that the riots we see in major cities will spread to all of America if their side loses.
They even blame Trump for their own acting out. One of my staffers said she was reminded of her niece having a tantrum when she was in her “terrible two’s,” screaming at her mother, suddenly shrieking wildly, “YOU MADE ME THIS WAY!” Imagine a two-year-old (!) with that kind of instinctive understanding of how to make her mother feel guilty for what she herself was doing. We are dealing with emotional two-year-olds, trying to manipulate in just the same way.
Give in to them, and that’s how they'll get their way with EVERYTHING –- by creating chaos and threatening escalation if we don’t appease them. They’re using race as the pretext for this, and they’ll take the conflict as far as they think they have to.
Prof. Glenn Reynolds at PJ Media came to a similar conclusion: “The left wants it to be about black vs. white, immigrant vs. native, etc. Trump’s making it clear that it’s about people who are constructive, productive, and generally happy, vs. people who are destructive, parasitic and generally miserable, and that that difference transcends things like race. This is a huge, underappreciated –- and very traditionally American –- message. By promoting it at this crucial time, Trump may very well be saving America.”
Amen. That’s what it will come down to. Americans can’t go about their lives and be productive and happy under the constant threat of chaos.
Hillary Clinton recently brought up another way that chaos can help her side get what they want. Remember at the 2016 debates when she was “horrified” that Trump wouldn’t promise to accept the upcoming election results (when he had no way to anticipate how they might conceivably be messed with)? Here’s what this ghoulishly hypocritical woman says now.
So, Biden should not concede “under any circumstances.” Putting Biden in the White House is simply “an organizational challenge,” even if America has clearly elected Trump. Imagine the chaos THIS creates. It shows she cares nothing for “democracy” and what Americans want, only power.
A commentary in Wednesday’s WALL STREET JOURNAL called “Mail-in Voting Could Deliver Chaos” describes the mess that could happen with mail-in balloting and one candidate simply refusing to concede. The WSJ has a paywall; but one of the authors has posted it.
Also, check out Dan Bongino’s podcast from Wednesday, Episode 1331, starting at 34:15.
The WSJ article greatly worries Bongino; he says to “get ready for the idea” that we won’t have a result even by December. But by FEDERAL LAW, the dates for the election and Electoral College voting are set in stone, and THE CONSTITUTION sets Inauguration Day as January 20. Period.
Mail-in ballots do not change this, but they must be postmarked no later than Election Day, in this case November 3, to count. Of course, the “mailbox” hoax is already being used ahead of time to discredit mail-in results, even as Democrats have pushed for mail-in voting.
State electors are supposed to resolve disputes six days before the Electoral College meets (this year, December 14), and if they can’t, the STATE LEGISLATURE has those six days to resolve the matter. If it can't, THE STATE FORFEITS ALL ITS ELECTORAL VOTES.
It’s easy to see how, at the state level, Democrats might mess with this system in key swing states to affect the electoral vote count. And even if Trump is inaugurated, they’ll say they “really” won, using the electoral chaos they created to delegitimize his second term, just as they used the “Russia” hoax they created to delegitimize his first term.
RealClear Politics goes into even more detail on what could go wrong with mail-in voting.
No wonder Democrats have pushed so hard for this. Anyway, get ready for anything. These people will sit by while violence destroys cities and gets people killed as long as they can blame it on Trump --- the very one who (unlike them) is genuinely interested in making life better and more productive for Americans.
