Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Dot #1. It started at the end of 2019, when the COVID-19 virus was thrust upon the world by Communist China. The main targets were the United States and Western Europe, the major economic foes of the Chinese. Ever since Donald Trump assumed the presidency, he had confronted the actions of the Chinese, mainly by challenging their self-serving trade practices, and imposing tariff's on their products entering the United States, which caused them great financial hardship. Therefore, China had reason to want to unseat their nemesis, Donald Trump, especially during the upcoming presidential campaign. They knew that the potent virus they developed in the Chinese City of Wuhan, would be a perfect method in undermining the economy of the United States, thereby hurting Trump politically. They knew that Trump's opponents (the Democrats and the Never-Trumper RINO's) would use the virus as a cudgel over the head of Trump as the virus played havoc all through the year 2020 leading up to the election.
Up until the unleashing of the China virus into the United States, Trump had many notable successes during the first 3 years of his administration. The economy was booming, the stock market hit all-time highs, the unemployment rate was the lowest since the 1940's, as blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and women all reaped the benefit of a low unemployment rate, the result of Trump's tax cuts on corporations and most individuals. He also stimulated businesses by doing away with the onerous regulations put in place under the Obama administration. Trump was riding high as 2020 approached and as the election year commenced.
Dot #2. No matter what great things Trump did for the economy, it all came down during the campaign as to how he handled the China virus. As he confronted the effects of the virus upon the country, he was challenged at every turn by the Democrats in whatever he tried to do, just as the Chinese planned would happen. The media (the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party) sometimes referred to as the “fake news media”, universally condemned and negatively spun events Trump presided over, even though he got praise, sometimes from Democrat governors, including Cuomo of New York and Newsom of California in the beginning, but it was not enough for his political haters, especially as it got closer to the election.
Dot #3. As the virus made itself felt around the country, Democrats, as part of their organized opposition to the Trump administration, started using the virus as an excuse to change the voting procedures in several states, mainly in 'battleground states', which were designated to be the determining factor in electing the next President. Stealthily, the Democrats worked to get many states to institute the voting procedure called “Universal Mail-in Ballots”, whereby blank ballots were mailed out to all potential voters whether or not they requested them. This lax procedure invited fraud, since individual identification wasn't verified and post marks, in some cases, were extended past the November 3rd election date. These changes were illegal as they should have been made through the state legislatures and not by governors and state voting officials, as stated in the U.S. Constitution. As early as late Spring, President Trump stated that this practice of lax voting controls was the only way the Democrats could possibly win the presidential election. No more prescient words were spoken by Trump during the campaign.
Dot #4. As election night on November 3rd was ending, Trump had significant leads in all battleground states. However, when morning arrived, batches of “Universal Mail-in Ballots” were mysteriously delivered to vote counting stations. Suddenly, Trump's substantial lead evaporated and Biden took the lead in the Electoral College and in the total votes “cast”. Charges of fraud and voting irregularities started to emerge from around the country as some people involved in the counting of votes came forth with signed affidavits claiming that many of the votes were being manipulated to give Biden the edge. Trump and his supporters are claiming that the election was rigged and that Trump was the winner. Around 50% of the citizens, mostly Republicans and some Democrats, agree with the assessment that the election was rigged in favor of Biden.
Dot #5. President Trump and his supporters have challenged the results, as it was quite obvious to any objective observer, that there was too much manipulation of votes for the election of Biden, to be considered a fair and honest election. The bar is set very high to expect the President to prevail in having the election overturned, even though the facts validate his position. If Biden prevails, he will serve with a cloud over his head as he tries to run the country.
When all is said and done and you connect the dots, it is evident who truly won this tainted election.
