Donald Trump: ‘I’m Afraid the Election Is Going to Be Rigged’ … Donald Trump on Monday night repeated his earlier assertion that the 2016 general election will be “rigged” against him … “I’m telling you, Nov. 8, we’d better be careful, because that election is going to be rigged,” Mr. Trump said in the Fox News interview. “And I hope the Republicans are watching closely or it’s going to be taken away from us.” –Wall Street Journal
Trump’s vote-rigging concern, expressed in this Wall Street Journal article, above, is reported on without much commentary.
Report it and forget about it. And maybe people won’t notice. That’s the way the mainstream media tries to deal with these issues in order to support a Hillary victory.
Hillary’s upcoming victory, if it occurs, is part of a larger scenario of “directed history.”
Elite dominant social themes are circulated to ensure that a given outcome is justifiable. In this case, the themes center around Hillary’s lack of trustworthiness. This is something she “needs to overcome” in order to win the election.
The election won’t necessarily focus on policy anymore but on whether or not Hillary is regaining voter trust. Thus, this election is being cast as even more of a popularity contest than usual. The issues are secondary to personality.
Interestingly, the presence of Trump has furthered this electoral approach. If Trump hadn’t appeared as a candidate you could argue the Democrats would want to invent him. Or someone would have invented him.
The election is merely a kind of story-telling. We don’t believe these federal contests are decided on election day. It’s been a long time since an important American election was waged openly or honestly. We can see how this election is being positioned and re-positioned.
Just recently three “billionaires” endorsed Hillary: Warren Buffett, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Michael Bloomberg. At least Bloomberg’s support was solicited.
Questions were raised regarding Trump’s tax returns and “documented record of bankruptcies.” These show clearly how the election is revolving around “trust.”
Endorsements are one part of the “trust dialogue” taking place in this election. The next part is polls.
We’ve already written about how polls are being manipulated in Hillary’s favor HERE. The process continues. A recent Reuters poll reconfigured questions in such a way as to de-emphasize positive Trump responses.
Reuters tweaked the way it polled. HERE. Reuters added in the option of “neither” candidate, which diminished the pro-Trump response.
A new CNN/ORC poll gave Hillary a seven percent convention bounce and put her ahead of Trump.
But we checked the ORC methodology. Here’s what we found:
Interviews with 1,003 adult Americans conducted by telephone by ORC International on July 29-31, 2016 … This sample includes 601 interviews among landline respondents and 402 interviews among cell phone responders,
Why would land-lines be predominant? Certainly it is possible that land-line audience might be less affluent than cell-phone responders.
The make up of a given polling audience is extremely important and can influence a poll in numerous ways. In a previous article about polling HERE, we found that pollsters were trying to contact younger people who would skew Democratic.
After a point one concludes these polls are virtually worthless because they can be directed in so many ways.
Whatever narrative the mainstream wishes to portray can be buttressed by positioning poll results in particular ways via the audience approached.
If polls, endorsements and favorable media coverage doesn’t provide an appropriate direction, there is always outright election fraud.
HERE, from John Rappoport’s blog:
US election shocker: is this how the vote will be rigged? Votes are being counted as fractions instead of as whole numbers …
As we know, there are a number of ways to rig an election. Bev Harris, at blackboxvoting.org, is exploring a specific “cheat sheet” that has vast implications for the Trump vs. Hillary contest.
It’s a vote-counting system called GEMS …
“Our testing [of GEMS] shows that one vote can be counted 25 times, another only one one-thousandth of a time, effectively converting some votes to zero.”
Fractional voting software is embedded in voting results but can reportedly be rendered invisible.
These methods provide the “directed history” that may lead to Hillary’s victory: skewed media coverage, calculated, solicited endorsements, manipulated polls and fraudulent voting.
Conclusion: The media, being part of the problem, will not provide significant coverage of these issues. As a result, while Hillary’s victory is not by any means ordained, it is certainly more likely than not.
