Do Americans have a memory? I sometimes wonder.

It is an obvious fact that the oligarchic One Percent have anointed Hillary, despite her myriad problems to be President of the US. There are reports that her staff are already moving into their White House offices. This much confidence before the vote does suggest that the skids have been greased.

The current cause celebre against Trump is his conditional statement that he might not accept the election results if they appear to have been rigged. The presstitutes immediately jumped on him for “discrediting American democracy” and for “breaking American tradition of accepting the people’s will.”

What nonsense! Stolen elections are the American tradition. Elections are stolen at every level—state, local, and federal. Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley’s theft of the Chicago and, thereby, Illinois vote for John F. Kennedy is legendary. The Republican US Supreme Court’s theft of the 2000 presidential election from Al Gore by preventing the Florida vote recount is another legendary example. The discrepancies between exit polls and the vote count of the secretly programmed electronic voting machines that have no paper trails are also legendary.

So what’s the big deal about Trump’s suspicion of election rigging?

The black civil rights movement has fought vote rigging for decades. The rigging takes place in a number of ways. Blacks simply can’t get registered to vote. If they do get registered, there are few polling places in their districts. And so on. After decades of struggle it is impossible that there are any blacks who are not aware of how hard it can be for them to vote. Yet, I heard on the presstitute radio network, NPR, Hillary’s Uncle Toms saying how awful it was that Trump had cast aspersion on the credibility of American election results.

I also heard a NPR announcer suggest that Russia had not only hacked Hillary’s emails, but also had altered them in order to make incriminating documents out of harmless emails.

The presstitutes have gone all out to demonize both Trump and any mention of election rigging, because they know for a fact that the election will be stolen and that they will have the job of covering up the theft.

Don’t believe the polls that say Hillary won the Q&A sessions or the polls that say Hillary is ahead in the election. Pollsters work for political organizations. If pollsters produce unwelcome results, they don’t have any customers. The desired results are that Hillary wins.
The purpose of the rigged polls showing her to be ahead is to discourage Trump supporters from voting.

Don’t vote early. The purpose of early voting is to show the One Percent how the vote is shaping up. From this information, the oligarchs learn how to program the electronic machines in order to elect the candidate that they want.

  1. anonymous • Disclaimer says:

    Chicago was always heavily into election rigging. Skid row winos were lined up and given booze and other gifts to vote. Confused elderly residents of nursing homes have been shuttled in and directed on how to vote. It’s been a one party city for many years now. Manipulating elections has a long history in America and it wasn’t the Russians or space aliens doing it. It’s probably a case of projection where they’re warning that the Russians are planning to pull some secret shenanigans election day, an absurd and paranoid fantasy. Polls show this, polls show that, they’re mostly for hire and give the customer what they are paying for. Note that much of the sleaze and seeking of decadent celebrity endorsements is premised on the American voting public being sized up as gullible and stupid, an idea that’s not unreasonable. Thanks for the warning on early voting.

  2. The main point of the polls is to condition the electorate to see the results produced by the rigging of the electronic voting machines as being in line with the polls and therefore to create a sense of legitimacy. This is of course much easier to do with machines rather than manual ballots. However it is still not very straightforward. Rigging the machines too much to show Clinton thrashing Trump will draw attention so I guess they will focus on the swing states where Clinton is said to be moving ahead and use unofficial polling to gauge the amount of rigging necessary to fi the result. PCR is absolutely right though. Don’t vote early and don’t tell the pollsters how you intend to vote.

    If Trump wins a close election then Obama, Hildabeast and the Dems will claim the Russians hacked into the voting machines which will lead to an (in)Justice Dept. “investigation” who will miraculously discover enough “hacked” or missing votes for Hillary to give her whichever states she needs to become president.

    The black civil rights movement has fought vote rigging for decades.

    They’ve also been bussed to the polls en masse by the Democrats and in Chicago and other places they’ve been known to vote multiple times. The negro loving PCR seems to forget about the Philly, PA, black panther intimidation of white voters in 2008, or how black Democrats kicked out Republican poll watchers from Philadelphia polling places in 2012 before they were reinstated by a federal judge.

    There was also a case of black Democrats violating voting rights of Republicans a few years back in which they were eventually found guilty of violating the rights of Republican voters.

    PCR thinks the blacks of today are just like those of 1963. Blacks are not as pure as the wind driven snow as the misinformed social justice warrior PCR fervently believes and have demonstrated a willingness to use their equal rights and political power to game the system and commit the same offenses against whites as whites allegedly committed against them.

    Obama’s actions as president prove my point as he’s been an unabashedly black president who sought to transfer a greater share of the nation’s wealth and political power to blacks and other non-whites in addition to taking the sides of every black criminal when they’ve run afoul of police.

  4. The equipage is multi-layered:

    (1) the duopoly that determines election laws and regulations, including voter registration

    (2) the parties’ nomination processes

    (3) the apparatus of the primaries

    (3) the Electoral College

    (4) the oversight of the actual voting, poll hours, disqualifications, etc.

    (5) the actual counting of votes (and the ersatz counting of the media, conceding, etc.)

    (6) the legal process of challenging the vote, also controlled by the duopoly

    And that is not even counting mediatic aspects like polls, coverage, and the rest.

    Indeed, indeed–after W. C. Fields–the ship of state of the United States of P. T. Barnum is marvellously rigged, is it not?

    But even all that is misleading, for the rigging is also rigged, and the ship itself is a miniature on the mantelpiece of its owners, who put it at auction among themselves every four years to give the groundlings the impression they have a role in its sailing–nay, even a responsibility.
