A year after coronavirus emerged in Wuhan, China’s Xi declares 2020 a triumph.’
The Washington Post thus approvingly headlined the Communist Chinese dictator Xi’s New Year Address to celebrating crowds ignoring social distancing in the streets of Wuhan, the very place from where Communist China knowingly released a plague onto the US, Australia and an unsuspecting world.
A triumph indeed as Communist China’s candidate, as well as the Post’s and the other mainstream media’s candidate, is ensconced in the White House. This chillingly recalls Alexander Hamilton’s warning of the most likely corruption of the US electoral process, that a foreign power ‘gain an improper ascendant in our councils.’
Reliable pollsters consistently indicate there is no doubt in the minds of many millions that Donald Trump won the Presidential election. Indeed, it is reasonable to conclude that any fair person, studying reports of the several challenges to the election would agree there are mountains of highly persuasive supporting evidence, direct and circumstantial.
To an Australian, the coup de grâce must be the contrived absence of and later, obstacles to republican scrutineers (observers) , something totally unacceptable in the land where the secret or Australian ballot was devised.
Indicative of the corruption of much of the mainstream media has been the shocking practice of preceding references to allegations of fraud with the adjective ‘baseless’ or some synonym, contrasting with the enthusiastically endorsed reporting over four years of demonstrably groundless claims against the President and in particular in relation to Russian collusion.
That the Supreme Court and lesser courts have almost invariably refused to hear the evidence, but found technicalities for not so doing, reflects on if not the independence, the lack of courage of too many of the judges. This is admittedly in a country where Democrat-aligned Marxist paramilitaries have run rampant with impunity during the year in Democrat-run cities.
Sadly, with Vice President Pence declining to test his constitutional powers to the full, the elections in the key battleground states are unlikely to be the subject of an urgent and genuine audit nor their legislatures able to rectify any inappropriate certification .
The result then, may well be the first-ever fulfilment of Hamilton’s warning.
