November 19th 2020
It is an overplayed cliché to refer to the insanity of the current year. Still, 2020 manages to surprise. It is increasingly looking like 2020 has created the greatest challenge to democratic legitimacy in the past century.
Yesterday was a truly remarkable day in American history.
The official legal team for President Donald Trump-led by Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis-outlined an argument that America's elections were hijacked by a conspiracy involving Dominion voting systems, the Smartmatic corporation, and elected officials of both parties. The team claimed that these actors collaborated with foreign enemies of the president to ensure he lost the 2020 election, actively inflating the vote totals for Joe Biden. The evidence, they say, will include hundreds of sworn affidavits and other documents that will validate their accusations. They also implied that the Department of Justice is either actively involved in this plot or serving to protect those involved.
The press conference was heavy in bold and striking claims, but so far the legal team has not provided enough documentation to adequately vet the claims made. It is certainly true that questions existed about some of these voting systems prior to the election and that the official results include all sorts of unprecedented voting trends that have sparked questions about their statistical likelihood. Unlikely outcomes are not, however, impossible outcomes, and there are no accusations that any voting machines were illegally used without going through the legally required certification processes.
Any serious legal challenge by Trump's campaign team will require significant evidence that they have yet to make available. Of course, if the claims are accurate, the case involves a crime that may be beyond the capabilities of America's judicial system.
What the Trump campaign can legally prove, however, is almost a secondary issue at this point.
Yesterday's press conference has entrenched the current American president in the position that his anointed successor is illegitimate and that he is the one who holds a democratic mandate to govern.
America has had controversial electoral outcomes before, such as the elections of 2000 and 1876, which ended up being decided by party leaders in a smoke-filled backroom (Republican Rutherford Hayes was given the presidency over Samuel Tilden in exchange for the repeal of Reconstructionist-era laws in the Southern states).
There are several key differences between these instances and the current political turmoil: you now have a populist sitting president, actively despised by the corporate press, who is simultaneously disliked by the establishment of his own party and passionately beloved by his base.
As I noted in an article a few days after the election:
regardless of the legal outcome, America is about to find itself with a president that will be viewed as illegitimate by a large portion of the population-and perhaps even the majority of some states. There is no institution left that has the credibility to push back against the gut feeling of millions of people who have spent the last few months organizing car parades and Trumptillas that their democracy has been hijacked by a political party that despises them.
The response we will receive from the corporate press, Very Serious pundits, and the various talking heads representing all the institutions that Trump has repeatedly mocked and belittled is obvious. Trump's legal team is being dismissed as a bunch of partisan, sycophantic cranks spinning baseless conspiracy theories. Donald Trump is being portrayed as a spoiled, entitled man-child who would rather take down American democracy than admit he lost. His supporters will be dismissed and mocked as, at best, dumb suckers or, at worst, potentially violent right-wing extremists.
The problem is that, regardless of one's opinion of Donald Trump or the specific claims made by his legal team, America's elite and those in power have no credibility of their own.
For almost four years, the corporate press has propped up various false stories about the president while simultaneously propping up his political enemies and actively ignoring stories about the misconduct of Joe Biden's son and potential conflicts of interest regarding the former vice president. The concerted effort to ask serious questions even forced journalists like Glenn Greenwald to ditch a media company he helped found.
At the same time, progressively-aligned Big Tech companies (many of which are staffed by former members of Kamala Harris's political offices) have been taking an increasingly aggressive role in censoring and editorializing President Trump and his supporters.
Their claims that they have an ethical obligation to combat "misinformation" in the name of "democracy" are undermined by their willingness to actively assist the Chinese Communist Party in censoring dissidents.
Meanwhile, the professional political class in this country, lauded as "experts" by the bad actors mentioned above, has long mocked the notion of democratic oversight. An explicit example was offered just recently when Jim Jeffrey, a US envoy to Syria, gleefully disclosed to DefenseOne that American military leaders successfully maintained a larger military presence in the country than President Trump had ordered. The power of America's professional bureaucracy goes beyond military matters, however, and the hope of much of America's elite is that US policy will be increasingly influenced by their colleagues at the UN and other globalist institutions. Be it the Paris Accord or the Great Reset, many American progressives increasingly view very serious policy matters as issues too important to be entrusted to American voters.
Further still, America's political environment has become so polarized and hostile that you have many elected officials in positions of influence who openly despise large swaths of the American population. For example, Arizona's secretary of state-the woman in charge of election integrity in the state-described Trump's base as "neo-Nazis" in 2017. Given her public statements, why would any Trump supporters have any faith in a governing body she influences to count votes? Meanwhile, the secretary of state in Michigan was a former employee of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-wing hate group.
It would, of course, be wrong to suggest that the elites of the American left are alone in their hatred of their political enemies. While the Left has tended to be more violent in recent years, there are many Republican voters who consider the political left immoral, un-American, and a threat to their families. The difference is that, outside of a few levers of federal power held by the Republican Party, the American right does not have nearly the same institutional support that the Left does currently.
It appears that 2020 may be the year that finally proves that the façade of democracy is not enough to maintain a unified political body. The election process does not inevitably lead to compromise and tolerance, but rather ends in those in power and those who are politically vanquished. When the losers of elections do not view their loss as a genuine reflection of democratic will, but rather an illegitimate coup, it is difficult to maintain governance over a population. Joe Biden appointing John Kasich-type Republicans will do little to soothe and reassure those who view a Biden presidency as little different than an occupational force.
This is why Ludwig von Mises viewed political decentralization and secession as a necessary component of liberal democracy. The proper objective of the democratic process was the peaceful transfer of power reflecting changes in the political will-political self-determination-rather than some form of civil worship of the will of the majority. When political differences become irreconcilable, true political decentralization allows for the breaking of political unions.
Will that end up being the ultimate result of the position of Trump's legal team? Who knows. Trump and a few lawyers will certainly not be enough to overturn the official results or to successfully spur a Trump secession movement. What will be interesting is how the institution of the Republican Party will respond to the escalating rhetoric of the president.
[Ron: I disagree. There are NO official results as yet! And when the result becomes 'official' it will overwhelmingly endorse Trump. Arguably this author's suggestion to the contrary is ignorant or disengenuous. IMHO it is likely that the Democrats and probably the Republicans will cease to exist in thier historic form after this election.].
Under President Obama, the Republican Party remained civil and submissive while its Tea Party base discussed ideas like nullification and a convention of states. The sterility of the traditional GOP is likely a major reason why Donald Trump was able to take over the party. How much of the modern GOP will continue to follow the forty-fifth president, and how many will end up being perfectly content with being partners with Joe Biden ?
[Ron: the reason that the Republican Party was civil and submissive under Obama is that both parties are corrupt to the core and they are essentially one group of Talmudically approved candidates divided into two pseudo opposing parties for the purpose of OPTICS, ie to deceive the electorate into believing they live in a functioning democracy in which they have a real "say". They don't. That's why Trump won in 2016 and again now. He offers a real alternative to the 2-Party farce. That becomes obvious with proper scrutiny of this election. If this author can't see it yet, he very soon will.
Democracies are distraction and misdirection mechanisms. In 1924 Montagu Norman, Governor of The Bank of England 1924 said:
"By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance."... "It is thus, by discrete action, we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
As a governance mechanism 'Democracy' was designed, promulgated and infused into Anglo-US and European national life by Talmudists as a useful adjunct to their corporatist-capitalist monetary control ideology designed to enslave all gentile nations. Since it's inception following the so-called Glorious Revolution in England in 1688-9 and the subsequent establshment of the Bank of England in 1694, Talmudic banksters have covertly ruled all Anglo-US nations and gradually extended their covert control to most other nations on the planet, usually under the pretence of introducting proper governance. The result has been widespread discord, global poverty and warfare.
Democracies were created by Talmudic banksters and their brethren to supplant monarchical governments by deceiving general populations into believing that voting for someone to "represent" them every two, three, four or five years somehow give voters a say in governance. It doesn't. Governments are too big and too centralised, and the party system ensures that elected representatives can always excuse their failure to honour promises to their electors by saying that their party has overruled them in the decision making process. Party systems need to be abolished and individual representatives must be held accountable by electors being able to recall them if they fail to keep their promises.
Democratic political mechanisms are vehicles for corruption. Their ostensible purpose is routinely suborned by wealthy individuals and corporations that have the wealth to buy advertising, campaigning expertise, votes and even vote rigging to ensure that their agents get elected. ALL of these methods were used to fraudulently and falsely appear to elect Biden on this occasion.
When politicians with policies contrary to those of the plutocrats do get elected, wealthy interests usually buy, blackmail or threaten them into making the decisions they desire. Failing that, the covert controllers have non-compliant political leaders assassinated. This happened to Lincoln, JFK and others in the US.
In any event democratic voting is designed to fail electors since it gives equal voting rights to everyone above a specified age, say 18, regardless of their IQ, education, experience, ability, integrity and degree of interest in and commitment to, community affairs and welfare. This automatically prevents rational and reasonable debate and decision making and greatly assists the MSM to gaslight and propagandize electors.
US democratic governance is esentially fascist as the US government is a corporation covertly controlled by its bankster and plutocratic owners who own or control most other mega corporations. Democratic processes involve elaborate 'window dressing' and propaganda with Talmudic banksters using misleading socialist mechanisms and democratic rhetoric to deceive electors while wielding an iron fist in a velvet glove that excludes them from legal liabilities imposed on the general population. In contrast, Fascist governments like those of Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito exercised power openly discarding the pretence of giving the population a real voice in decision making. On the plus side, Fascist governments tend to protect their populations from the worst excesses of globalist banksters by curbing usury in the interests of national development.

What we can be sure of is that it will be much harder for Biden to win over many of the 70+ million Americans who voted for Donald Trump earlier this month.
[Ron: Surely this author jests. Kamala Harris is the intended presidential encumbent and her controllers have no intention of placating any USans let alone Trump supporters. Also, Trump's supporters probably exceed 80 million.].
End Note 1:
Ron: In 1666 AD England was under demonic control (see eg: Dr. John Dee: Occultist Behind the British Empire and Judaic New World Order - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Dr-John-Dee-Occultist-Behind-the-British-Empire-and-Judaic-New-World-Order.shtml )
Jim Jones says: 'In 1666 in one of the most daring false flag operations of early times - [Ron: arguably comparable in many ways to the intentions behind COVID-19], London experienced the Great Fire. While a large part of London burned, Parliament sat for around 100 days and passed into law an Act which would change the world forever.The Cestui Que vie Act of 1666 [pronounced "set a kay"] was passed behind closed doors while all of London was pre-occupied. The Act subrogated the rights of man, meaning that all men were declared dead, lost at sea/beyond the sea. [At that stage old Admiralty Law was in operation - and Papal Law].
Because according to the law, all men were now dead, the State took the property of all men into trust - [The Public Trust]. The State thus became the trustee/husband holding all titles to people and property until such time as a living man comes back from the dead to make a claim. If a man comes back and makes claim then he can not only claim back the titles held but also claim damages. This is known as the Cestui QueTrust. The legal fiction created being identified by capital letters for the name of the person from who the title had been stolen - John SMITH.
We are now a legal entity/fiction owned by and controlled by the government/state. Legally we are now a fiction, a concept or an idea that is expressed as a name, a symbol, a mark or a number [or combination of all, depending on how the Trust was recorded] and the legal entity has no consciousness; it is a juristic person END LEGIS - a name on a piece of paper.
[Ron: For the sitution in the US see eg: An Investigative Report Re the US Strawman UCC/Redemption Process By Barton A. Buhtz See: http://abundanthope.net/pages/True_US_History_108/An_Investigative_Report_Re_the_US_Strawman_UCC_Red_3358.shtml].
So, our name and property were stolen by deception and sleight of hand - we were too occupied with other matters to notice! Governments and States went to [and still do] considerable trouble to hide this truth from us and now that we were no longer real living people, we can be governed by Statues, not Common Law. Statues are Commercial/Mercantile Law and can only relate to legal entities - Common Law relates to real people, born of a creator and free of chattel.
So with all property now passed to the Banks as security for loans provided to Governments - which are themselves just corporations run by a CEO - Prime Minister, President etc. the corporations were busy making a profit and paying their usury and profits to the banks by taxing you.
Silly you, you thought you owned the government with the taxes you paid! You thought you controlled the government! Well, the banks saw to that! They increased the money supply and then abruptly withdrew money in the 1920 - causing the Great Depression. Governments collapsed around the Western World, just like the banks predicted. The government corporations went to the banks saying that they could not pay the amounts but the banks already had an answer - they would trade money for you! The Births Deaths and Marriages Act 1933 [different years depending on what country you are in] allowed the government to create a separate identity for you [a legal fiction] and then trade that to the banks as security on loans from the banks to get out of a bankruptcy which the banks had engineered in the first place. [As governments are a fiction - that is they are a creation of man's imagination; they cannot contract with a real person, they need a fictional person to contract with]. Because you act on the legal identity created by a Birth Certificate, you now are legally that identity and subject to all the Statute Laws that Government want to pass. All Statue Law is a Commercial Contract and are designed to withdraw your money.
So the truth is, you are actually owned by the banksters - you are a chattel, a trust Bond which is of value because of your earning capacity and so, can be and are traded. [You thought slavery was abolished!].
But it gets worse, the Government is simply a business - a corporation and the head office is in the IMF! Your Prime Ministers and Presidents will do exactly what Head Office tells them to do and nothing you can say will stop that. This IS the truth about democracy.'

Ron: The whole point of Trump's allowance of the Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax, impeachment proceedings, COVID chicanery, Antifa and BLM riots and Biden's attempted election STEAL etc to play out, is so that USans and humanity generally, can finally SEE how the Talmudists operate and what they do.
The Triodity of President Trump, Putin and Xi their supporters are reversing humanity's current enslaved situation in the US and globally without resorting to a kinetic world war. That is why Trump is sooo hated and reviled by the globalists in the US and everywhere. Once Trump is officially declared the winner of the US presidential election the Talmudists will be removed.].
