Three weeks out, most voters still in the dark

October 13, 2020 |

We’re one day closer to Election Day --- now just three weeks out --- and most voters are still wearing blindfolds, clueless on a variety of issues. To a large extent, it’s because information is being hidden from them.

As reported yesterday, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won’t even answer questions about what they plan to do in office, notably whether they’ll pack the Supreme Court –- a prospect that used to horrify even the most diehard Democrats. Attorney General Barr has told us not to expect U.S. Attorney John Durham’s report before the election is over, and it seems voters won’t even see an interim report. My patience has certainly worn thin. Lawmakers, even some Republicans, are dragging out the search for evidence that implicates Biden and his cohorts in potentially criminal behavior.

Voters tend to make their choices based on economic issues and other things that directly affect them, so why are the results of these investigations important now? Because if Trump loses, those same people will be right back in place, ending the investigations and cementing their power in a variety of ways. Voters deserve to know if their candidates are criminals. Heck, some in the middle who are currently leaning left might even care.

As we’ve reported, social media also play a huge role in hiding information. The Tweet Police at Twitter are blocking tweets that provide evidence of ongoing voter fraud with mail-in ballots. They even “play doctor,” critiquing and blocking President Trump’s tweets about coronavirus, comments that might be pretty darned informative considering what he’s personally been through. The mainstream media enforce the Democrat narrative as well, in part by hiding violence infecting those “peaceful protests” in leftist-run cities.

These are just a few examples. Their strategy is to HIDE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION.

Speaking of hiding, we have an update on what I reported yesterday, about CIA Director Gina Haspel working to protect her agency from oversight at all costs. She received a letter last Wednesday from Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, ordering her to comply with a number of oversight requests regarding “Crossfire Hurricane” that they’d sent her in July. (July!) But she’s blown it off.

An excerpt from their letter to Haspel reads, “The American people have a right to know the full extent of official action taken by federal officials during the 2016 campaign, the presidential transition, and into the Trump administration...Unfortunately, many of the puzzle pieces remain hidden, and some of the information rests within your agency.”

Haspel was given until October 9 to comply with their requests. It’s now October 13. As reported earlier in THE FEDERALIST, Haspel is personally setting up the roadblocks. To protect her position, she’s pulling for Biden to win and all the Old Guard to resume their places in The Swamp.

As then-CIA Director John Brennan’s hand-picked station chief in London, Haspel was in the perfect spot to know what was going on with former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele and whatever was being choreographed across-the-pond to create the phony “Trump/Russia” narrative. But she’s still hiding it.

Ironically, Haspel said this during her confirmation hearing for CIA director in 2018: “As both a career intelligence officer and as an American citizen, I am a strong believer in the importance of oversight [and accountability]...I will uphold the Agency’s obligations to Congress and ensure that oversight works on behalf of the American people.”

What a hoot. The President should order her to respond fully to all inquiries immediately or else collect her things and be escorted out of the building. And how long does it take to prepare a subpoena?

So, why is all this important right now? Haven’t most people already decided which candidate to vote for? Yes, they have. In fact, many have voted already, as the DNC has been pushing them to VOTE EARLY! (The old saying “vote early and vote often” might not be much of a joke this year.) But Biden’s support is not what you’d call enthusiastic; many might swing away if they knew more: his rapidly deteriorating mental condition, his repeated and demonstrable lies, the radical leftists pulling his strings, his disrespect for voters, and, yes, his scandals, including alleged criminal conduct. The Democrat leadership knows that the sooner voters cast their ballots, the less likely they are to be operating on any of this information when they do.

Another investigation that hasn’t seen resolution before the election (and absolutely will end if the Democrats get back in power) is that of the DNC “hacks” that were supposedly done by the Russians. This was the start of the whole @#$% “Russia Russia Russia!” obsession we were subjected to for four years. Incredibly, some Biden supporters STILL believe that Trump was and is an agent of Vladimir Putin, and their votes will reflect that lie.

It would come as a surprise to most voters that there isn’t even any evidence that Russia hacked the DNC. You and I now know this was a story concocted by Hillary Clinton, apparently with help from one of her foreign policy advisers, to distract from her own email scandal. Recall that the cybersecurity company that DNC/Hillary law firm Perkins Coie hired to examine its servers and that launched the hacking allegation against Russia in 2016 was a firm called CrowdStrike, which is no little mom-and-pop.

CrowdStrike never transferred custody of the servers to the FBI but gave them reports, which were later cited by both the FBI and the special counsel. As RealClear Investigations writes, “During that fateful July 2019 phone call that would later trigger impeachment proceedings, Trump asked Ukraine’s [president] to scrutinize CrowdStrike’s role in the DNC server breach, suggesting that the company may have been involved in hiding the real perpetrators.” And why shouldn’t the President suspect them? After all, IT WAS HILLARY WHO HIRED THEM.

If you've been following the details, here’s the latest on CrowdStrike. By the way, the reason CrowdStrike is in the news today is that according to recent financial disclosure filings, Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul have just invested up to $1 million in CrowdStrike Holdings.

    So, just who do I send my resume to in order to apply for that $15 million an hour job? Hunter Biden?

    Morning Mike: I enjoy your column, how about saying something on your tv show about Durham, Barr, and Haspel all not opening classified documents - all 3 are waiting on Biden to be elected. Republicans in Congress have no balls, guts, or backbone, they all are yes men and but lickers! I despise them all!

    I am so disappointed in Barr and the DOJ that my senses go numb. We have been promised the results of Durham's investigation for months, and . . . nothing! If I were President Trump, and assuming that I can win a second term, the first thing I would do is sit down with 4 or 5 trusted advisors and clean house. It's way past time for new job postings.

    It appears many in the Republican Party are part of the problem, which doesn’t give us much hope at cleaning out the corruption or holding these criminals accountable. Apart from an intervention from almighty God we will most likely see a communist government in place within the next 4 years. Our society has deteriorated due to a lack of moral conviction which can only come from a change of the heart. Our hearts are wicked from birth. If we are not convicted of this sin by the Holy Spirit, that Jesus Christ died for those sins, then our sin will destroy us like it is destroying most today. By repenting of our sin, and putting our faith in Jesus Christ and following Christ as Lord, we can have those sins forgiven, the bondage of sin broken, external life , peace, joy and purpose will be ours. Maybe God is giving us this government corruption and its consequences due to our own complacency, and we will reap what we sow. Or maybe God is using this to separate the wheat from the chaff, to send persecution to the people of God so those that are His children will remain faithful while the rest will deny the faith. Then the judgement of God will come on the wicked.??? Maybe there will be a revival and then a spiritual awakening. That would be cool. I guess we will see soon.

    Let us pray first and hold to the old saying: The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Democrats think they have an ace up the sleeve but Christian's have the true ace..the power of payer and we're using our full arsenal! To Trump be the victory but to God be the glory and spoils!

    I am not in the dark. Never have Been. President Trump should be the obvious pick. I am 71 and have not seen Joe Biden accomplish anything positive for this country.

    Based on regularly recurring events, we now know the following unfortunate realities :

    1. local governments will not enforce the law against those indulging in criminally destructive behavior.
    2. journalists will misrepresent occurrences of such destruction, thereby providing cover for the burgeoning mobs of emboldened criminals.
    3. the state will punish, with malice aforethought, any private citizen who tries to intervene and stop such destruction.

    USA teeters on the edge of anarchy, to the boundless joy of our many enemies, both foreign and domestic.

    Democracy always leads to anarchy which then leads to tyranny. We’re almost there. Biden-Harris is just the ticket to complete the task.
