Does Twitter’s full disclosure justify a do-over?
Platinum subscriber Kooter asks: Do the recent Twitter revelations alter your opinion about the veracity of the 2020 election?
The short answer is NO. What counts in an election is HOW they voted, not WHY they voted the way they did. An election cannot be overturned because voters are stupid or were “misled.” They usually are!
That many voters were, indeed, misled about the dirt on Hunter Biden’s laptop is undeniable. A cynic would say that’s what elections are all about, misleading the voters. (There was no “missile gap” in 1960, contrary to JFK’s assertion.) Then again, who trusted our news media in the first place?
Hunter Biden’s laptop could yet prove that Papa Joe can recite Mao’s Little Red book from memory in fluent Mandarin Chinese. Doubtful that would sway many of his voters over to the hated Trump — just as #45’s voters would excuse their hero from shooting that man in the middle of Times Square. (He’d have to wait his turn.)
Would Trump have won in 2016 without James Comey’s foolishness over the Hildabeast’s secret server? If active FBI agents tamped down the story on Hunter’s laptop it was Trump’s FBI. For certain, retired Obama/Biden spooks led by James Clapper and John Brennan called it Russian disinformation. Those two, along with Hillary Clinton, belong in jail.
On whose authority would a do-over election be conducted? It is nowhere provided in the Constitution (which Trump wants to override, anyway). If one were held, how many of those voters would be turned off by Trump’s January 6 insurrection? Reversing the 2020 election is just as impossible (Janel Brandtjen, Timothy Ramthun, Adam Steen, and the My Pillow Guy notwithstanding). What is the precise number of voters who would have switched if Hunter’s laptop was cablecast in primetime? We don’t know either.
→ Do something unique to put Trump back in the White House.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Who decides? What judge, which jury if not the greatest jury of all — voters themselves? Which is why we have presidential elections every four years.
