JOE BIDEN'S ELECTION AND THE REICHSTAG FIRE
On November 6, 2020, I posted an article about the Biden Election and Its Predecessors. I compared his election to that of the Nazis in March 1933, in which the majority of voters, nearly 2 thirds, voted against democracy and in favor of totalitarianism, Nazi, Nazi allies, and Communists. Here I want to reconsider the comparison.
When I wrote immediately after the November 3 election in the US, I assumed that Biden had won the popular vote by several millions, and the Electoral vote by a substantial majority. However, the more I considered the objections to the electoral results, the more I questioned my initial acceptance of the major media narrative. I reside in Wisconsin, a state which in my youth was synonymous with clean government. But was that still true? I thought of my anger when in Wisconsin we had a state-wide election in April 2020. The Democrats were already promoting vote-by-mail, and the day before the election, the Governor, a left-wing Democrat, canceled the election day polling. A last minute judicial ruling said the governor could not do that. We would go on with the in-person voting as scheduled. So then Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee, another liberal Democrat, reduced the number of polling places for a city of over half a million, from 180 to a mere 5 polling places. I suddenly did not know where to vote, had to take a bus to a different neighborhood, a find where to enter the place, etc. At some of these polls, the wait was 2 and ½ hours to vote. Other Democrat Mayors also cut the polling places. Yet, Democrats always proclaim that it is Republicans who seek to suppress the vote!
I learned that in September and October 2020, before the Wisconsin law permitted early voting, there were vote parties in parks in Madison and other areas, advertised by the Wisconsin Election Commission and the Democratic Party, in which many young people could vote, early, and their ballots were collected by election officials. A Republican official demaned that these ballots be kept separate, as the GOP would contest this violation of the law. The election officials immediately went about to integrate these ballots with the uncontested. Election officials defied the law also stating that because of the virus, people who were not permanently impaired, could sign saying they were, and get mail-in ballots for which they would not have to show the required photo ID. Wisconsin law states that if a mail-in vote lacks a signature, or that of a withness, or the address of a witness, it should be returned to the voter for correction, OR NOT BE COUNTED, AS IT WOULD BE AN ILLEGAL VOTE. But election officials defied the law, especially in Democratic Party areas, allowing clerks to correct and count these defective ballots. And so on. It is estimated that over 200,000 Biden ballots were illegally cast in Wisconsin. The official tally is that Biden won the state by 20,000 over Trump. Delete the 200,000 illegal votes, and Trump should have won Wisconsin by 180,000.
What happened in Wisconsin happened in many other states. The major contested states were Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada, but there was probably fraud and Democratic Party cheating in most states. It got less publicity and less perusal because the other states were less crucial – if Trump could show that he had really won more legitimate votes in those contested states, then he would be the winner and should be inaugurated January 20, 2021 for his 2nd term. But court after court was unwilling to look at the evidence – they preferred to turn a blind eye to the cheating. It is possible they kept a wide eye to what happened all summer long, the violence of the Democratic Party mobs burnding down parts of cities. The culprits were rarely punished, and the organizations who sponsored these terrorist tactics earned millions from frightened corporations. Whatever the reasons, the courts refused to hear the evidence.
On January 6, 2021 Congress was to meet to count and certify the votes of the Electoral College. Pres. Trump had urged his followers to come to Washington, DC, so he could give an account of the voter fraud essential to Biden's alleged victory. At the conclusion, he urged a peacable march on the Congress. Not all who marched were peaceful? Some stormed into the Congress, fighting with police, overwhelming the authorities by their numbers. A policeman was killed by demonstrators; one unarmed female demonstrator was killed by the police.
The media was outraged. Congress under attack; our democracy at risk! Congress, the people's chamber interrupted by invaders. Foreign nations are laughing at us; China compares the anti-Beijing protestors in Hong Kong (who invaded the city's chamber) to those in DC. The problem with the media and the Democrats outrage is that it was hypocritical. In the summer of 2020 mobs of Democrats, bearing Black Lives Matter and Anti-Fa banners had cause great destruction in many cities, including Washington, DC. The AP story of 31 May 2020 relates:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Secret Service agents rushed President Donald Trump to a White House bunker on Friday night as hundreds of protesters gathered outside the executive mansion, some of them throwing rocks and tugging at police barricades.
The US Govt., has 3 basic divisions: legislative, executive, and judicial. While the media went over the top with the invasion of Congress, it's treatment of the attacks on the executive were quite different. It failed to see that as an attack on democracy; and some mocked Trump for hiding in the basement. Next night, when Trump cleared Lafayette Park of the mob, media and the Democrats (I'm being repetitious) complained that the peaceful demonstrators were being deprived of their civil liberties. After the clearing, Trump walked through the cleared part ot an ancient church that, the previous night the “peaceful protestors” sought to torch. (If given a chance, would they have also set fire to the White House?) There, Trump waved a Bible in triumph; the church was still there. Even last week Biden belittled Trump for using the Bible. If the invasion of the Capitol was an assault on democracy; then so was the assault on the White House that the Secret Service found threatening enough to bring the Trumps to the bunker. Why do the media and Democrats make so much of the attack on the Capitol, and so little about the attacks on the White House, for it was not just one, but guests leaving the White House were often subjected to harassment and threats by the Dem allies BLM and Anti-Fa.
On 30 January 1933 Pres. Hindenburg appointed Adolf Hitler Chancelor of Germany. Hitler asked that a new parliament (Reichstag) be elected, and the date was set for 5 March. However, on 27 February the Reichstag building was set ablaze, and a Dutch Communist was found in the building and was probably the arsonist. Hitler then asked Pres. Hindenburg to suspend civil liberties while the govt. sought to prevent further Communist terrorism. The election gave the Nazis 44%, their allies 8%, and the Communists, 16%. The parliament then passed an empowering act, giving Hitler special powers to handle the crisis. The Communists were then expelled from the Reichstag; with their exit, the Nazis suddenly had a majority in the Reichstag.
1 April 1933 the Nazis conduct a national boycott of Jewish stores and businesses.
Shortly before European Labor Day, 1 May 1933, union offices raided, those of Communists, Socialsists, and Catholic unions. The govt. announces hereafter there will be but one German Labor Front organization under leadership of the Nazis, and the Nazis conduct the May Day celebrations. Meanwhile, freedom of speech, of the press, and so on was quickly evaporating in Germany.
The media and Democrats are using the Capitol invasion as their Reichstag moment. There is such hatred of Trump and those who support him. A Senator who dared speak up in Congress to denounce voter fraud, just lost a contract with a major publisher (now a subsidiary of CBS) in which he would expose the big tech monopolies and how they are a danger to free speech. To prove their danger, and more, their power, the big techs colluded to ban Parler from the internet! Since big tech supported Biden, even banning the expose by the NY Post of Hunter Biden and Joe Biden's corrupt dealings in China and elsewhere. Do not expect a Biden administration to crack down on big tech.
Biden talks of unity, but simultaneously sounds quite vindictive, not only against Trump, but against all who voted for him. Hitler moved quickly to destroy freedom in Germany. How quickly is Biden moving? And Biden is not yet President!-------------Hugh Murray
