Did President Trump Spring a Trap on Treasonous Democrats on Election Night?
Did President Trump Spring a Trap on Treasonous Democrats on Election Night? By Paul Dowling for American Thinker
“I, DONALD J. TRUMP . . ., find that the ability of persons located, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States to interfere in or undermine public confidence in United States elections . . . constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States. … I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with this threat.”
—President Trump, in his executive order of September 12, 2018, giving the pretext for the blocking of property and money transfers, without prior notification, belonging to persons who have dealt in foreign interference during the 2020 presidential election
Trump Knew All Along the Democrats Would Cheat
When President Trump became president in 2017, he knew that the Democrats were hell-bent on removing him from office. The Democrats tried endlessly to find skeletons in Trump’s closet, as part of a Soviet-style harassment campaign, wherein a person, rather than a crime, is investigated. Stalinist Lavrenty Beriawould have been proud; it was Beria who said, “Show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime.” The fact that Trump has survived so much character assassination and political scrutiny only goes to show how scrupulously honest Trump has been in his business and other dealings throughout his life.
Trump has known for a long while that, to finish his part in restoring America’s free republic, he would have to deal with tremendous election fraud in his bid for re-election. In 2016, Trump enjoyed the element of surprise in that his overwhelming popularity was great enough to overcome the systemic fraud set in place to rig the election for Hillary Clinton. So certain were the complicit media of a win for Clinton that they predicted a 95% probability of her winning. But the same blunder — born of Democrat arrogance and overconfidence from years of triumphant cheating — would not occur a second time in 2020. The media would, during Trump’s first term as president, embark on creating the illusion that the most popular president since Ronald Reagan was actually reviled. This Big Lie would be endlessly repeated, in hopes of making enough people believe a loss to Biden was in the cards for Trump.
Learning How the Sausage Is Made
In 2018, there was serious election fraud in Florida and in Arizona. Trump’s team observed the cheating and learned from it in preparation for the 2020 presidential election cycle. Prior to the 2018 election, on September 12, Trump issued an “Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election.” The importance of this Executive Order largely escaped notice during the 2018 election cycle, but it would loom ever larger as the 2020 election approached.
The fact that no major arrests seem to have been made, concerning the election fraud of 2018, indicates that many of the fraudsters may have received plea bargains in exchange for making the next round of electoral crimes so highly visible that the irregularities could not be missed. If arrests had been made back in 2018, the Democrats would simply have brought in new operatives to do their criminal bidding in 2020, which, in the long run, would not have helped President Trump. While this line of reasoning is speculative, to be sure, the actual election fraud perpetrated in 2020 against the president is unmistakable.
