The Fight Goes On

Written by Bill Thomas on November 4, 2020

The chaos surrounding election 2020 came to a crescendo as election day slipped into the day after. As I’m writing this, Biden and Trump are locked in a razor-tight race. The presidency, it seems, will come down to Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Nevada. The night was not without a host of controversy.

Pennsylvania stopped counting on election night, generating all kinds of suspicions and doubts about the validity of the numbers.

Trump led Georgia most of the night until a pipe burst, causing the count to stop. After that, the count got much closer, causing many to question what’s going on.

Fox News revealed its anti-Trump sentiment, ridiculously calling states early for Biden and hesitating to call any victories for Trump.

The pollsters and elite media were again exposed as frauds. There was never going to be a blue wave. They had been using the polls to suppress the Trump vote and shape the electorate to be more favorably disposed to Biden.

What does all of this mean? The initial takeaway has to be the fight goes on. No matter what numbers come out later today (I’m still hopeful Trump can hold Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia and Pennsylvania), the fight will go on.

If Trump has squeaked out a narrow win, the Democrats will attack in the courts. If the Democrats can find and, in my view, manufacture enough votes to get Biden across the line, Trump and the Republicans will fight to protect the legitimacy of the election. It seems to me we are headed for days if not weeks or months, of legal wrangling, recounts and ballot examinations.

It is also a fact that the country is divided, perhaps irreversibly so. No matter who comes out on top, voters on the other side are never going to accept these results as legitimate. From my point of view, that’s the way Democrats and the media have been since 2016. I’m hopeful they will get four more years to practice being angry, outraged and arrogant. If, somehow, Biden slithers into the White House, he will do so under suspicious clouds of found ballots, media lies, and delayed counts in Democrat-controlled areas.

It’s clear, too, that there was no “blue wave.” Progressive thinking and the liberals do not, yet anyway, own the worldview of the American people. It is apparent, though, that the Democrats are the party of the elites and the GOP is now the party of the working people. One big positive that emerged last night was that Trump and the GOP did well among Latino voters and African American male voters, broadening the party’s base.

Another outcome, much clearer than who won the race, is that Fox News will take a huge hit from conservatives. Viewers tuned out of Fox’s biased Biden coverage to watch Newsmax and other balanced newscasts.

So, what’s next? The mostly Democrat-led states will continue to try to find enough votes for Biden so they can end the count. Most of the uncalled states will be facing a recount. As that begins, we will see the legal wrangling start. I would not be surprised that, if by Thanksgiving, we are talking about how the Supreme Court and Justice ACB might handle election irregularities.

It wasn’t a blue wave, and for that I’m thankful. I do wish Trump had a few more votes in a few states, and I’m not at all comfortable where that race stands. Maybe today will end more positively than it began. For now, the best we can hope for is that the fight goes on.
