Weak Republican lawmakers breathed a huge sigh of relief after the fake inauguration back in January. They’d really dodged a bullet! Phew! Now that the inauguration was over, they wouldn’t have to make any hard choices for America. But patience and public pressure are starting to win out. A few weeks ago, it seemed impossible to hope that Pennsylvania would ever conduct a valid audit of its 2020 results. Today, it looks like Pennsylvania Senate Republicans are going to authorize a full, Arizona-style forensic audit. They’ve been kicking and screaming to avoid it. Don’t you wish that Republicans would fight for an election victory the same way that Democrats always do when they lose the presidency?
No conspiracy theory is too insane for consideration whenever a Republican wins the White House. Conversely, when a Democrat wins (or “wins,” as in Joe Biden’s case), the election is immediately declared clean as a whistle and the ballots must be burned, lest anyone should try to look too closely at them.
We were just treated to three years of the Russian collusion kook theory after Donald Trump wiped the floor with Crooked Hillary in 2016. In 2000, George W. Bush “cut a secret deal” with the Supreme Court to steal Florida from Al Gore. The media even paid to audit the 2000 Florida results months after that election, to try to overturn the election results. In 1988, George HW Bush used secret racism with his Willie Horton campaign ads to trick people into voting for him.
One of the biggest doozies that people have forgotten about was the Democrat Party’s attempts to overturn the results of Ronald Reagan’s 1980 victory over Jimmy Carter. The wacky theory hatched to try to remove Reagan from office was that Reagan’s campaign had clandestinely traveled to Paris in October of 1980 to meet with Iranian ayatollahs. In that secret meeting, the ayatollahs (according to the conspiracy theorists) agreed to keep American hostages in captivity until after the election, in order to hurt Jimmy Carter’s chances.
In the minds of Democrats, this was grounds for invalidating the Reagan presidency and removing him from office. Reagan must have colluded with Iran. How else could Democrats explain Reagan’s 489-49 electoral college landslide over Carter?!
To make matters worse for America, the Democrats had a “witness” to the secret Paris meeting between Reagan’s campaign and the Iranians. That was a woman named Barbara Honegger. And we’re using the term “witness” a bit loosely here.
Ms. Honegger did not actually “see” or “witness” the meeting as it took place between Reagan’s campaign and the Iranians. That’s because Ms. Honegger – the primary witness to this historic crime – is a noted paranormal expert who loathes Republicans.
Honegger testified that she knew about the secret meeting because she could hear the voices of supercomputers… from the future.
Democrats in the House of Representatives launched a years-long, multimillion-dollar investigation into the secret Reagan-Iran meeting based on the word of a woman who can hear supercomputers from the future in her head. And this was back in the 1980s, when millions of dollars was real money. Honegger also revealed that the Pentagon had use satellites in outer space to part the clouds and make the sun shine directly on Reagan’s face during his inauguration. Which probably confirmed another suspicion for the Party of Science!
After millions of dollars and years of investigations, congressional Democrats were finally forced to admit that the Reagan-Iran meeting never took place. But you’re a conspiracy nut if you think that Pennsylvania’s election should be audited! Not that the Democrats have given up hope on the existence of the meeting yet. They went back and investigated it again in 1991, hoping to uncover something new. That was three years after Reagan left office, but you never know!
The good news is that Republicans don’t have to call on any paranormal witnesses to prove that the 2020 election was wonky. The bad news is that voters have to publicly shame their elected state Representatives for months to get them to do what we want – which is audits, audits and more audits.
State Sen. David Argall of Pennsylvania has finally succumbed to public pressure and personal shaming from President Trump. Argall has announced that his committee in the Pennsylvania legislature is going to empower an Arizona-style audit – and his committee has the authority to subpoena ballots. So that’s something. But wouldn’t it be nice if we didn’t have to pull fingernails out of these guys to get them to do their jobs? We’re not claiming to have evidence from supercomputers from the future. We just want to look at the damned ballots.
