They Admit “Our Democracy” Is RiggedRobert Hampton
The 2020 election was the freest and fairest in human history. That’s an article of faith you must repeat to avoid the dreaded label of “domestic terrorist.” Doubts about the election threaten our democracy and cannot be allowed.
Most readers have been barraged with this message since November. But now a new message is emitting from our noble elites: “We actually did rig the election, and it was to protect democracy.” The powerful liberals behind this rigging told their story in Time magazine last week. Journalist Molly Ball celebrated this as the “shadow campaign that saved the 2020 election.” Ball describes it as a conspiracy “working behind the scenes” that united nearly every institutional force in the country against Donald Trump. “The forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy,” she proudly writes. Even though she says Trump was right to see a conspiracy at work, she says it was necessary to “protect” democracy. Here are the two paragraphs that encapsulate this shadow campaign.
The handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election — an extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote but to ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted. For more than a year, a loosely organized coalition of operatives scrambled to shore up America’s institutions as they came under simultaneous attack from a remorseless pandemic and an autocratically inclined President. Though much of this activity took place on the left, it was separate from the Biden campaign and crossed ideological lines, with crucial contributions by nonpartisan and conservative actors. The scenario the shadow campaigners were desperate to stop was not a Trump victory. It was an election so calamitous that no result could be discerned at all, a failure of the central act of democratic self-governance that has been a hallmark of America since its founding.
Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result.
Essentially, the Right was correct about the rigged election. But since the Left did it legally, it’s no issue at all. The coalition was primarily assembled by one union organizer, AFL-CIO senior adviser Mike Podhorzer. From the Left, he brought together “the labor movement; the institutional left, like Planned Parenthood and Greenpeace; resistance groups like Indivisible and MoveOn; progressive data geeks and strategists, representatives of donors and foundations, state-level grassroots organizers, racial-justice activists and others.” From the “Right,” he pulled in the Chamber of Commerce, Christian groups, Never Trumpers, and a few norm-obsessed Trump supporters. The Left pressured tech giants and media to suppress information and organized the hoi polloi for mostly peaceful demonstrations. The Left called off said protests when it appeared Trump was going to lose. The plan was to mobilize them if Trump appeared ready to win. The Color Revolution playbook is now a domestic political strategy.
The so-called Right pressured crucial allies to not support Trump’s fight against the rigged election and capitulate to the democratic conspiracy. Even though Trump’s policies were very good for the business community, they stabbed the departed president in the back. Fears of “civil disorder” made them prefer a Biden victory. One of the worst Republican cretins highlighted in the article is former congressman Zach Wamp. Wamp, a self-described Trump supporter, dedicated his energy to persuading other Republicans to not back Trump’s challenge to the election. He felt the “norms” of democracy must be respected, even if it means your own dispossession.
It’s odd that a mainstream publication would gleefully confirm the Right’s “conspiracy theories” about the election — and get powerful figures to speak on the record about it. According to Ball, the conspirators wanted the story told to show that the “proper outcome of the election” didn’t happen “accidentally” — it was a coordinated effort.
That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream — a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. . . . They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.
How much democracy do we have when Black Lives Matter, the Chamber of Commerce, the AFL-CIO, and other lefty groups can join forces and rig an election? The use of “cabal” is too perfect. Ball feels comfortable calling it a cabal because there is no need to hide it anymore. It’s similar to how liberals talk about the Great Replacement. If you say whites are being replaced and it’s bad, you’re a conspiracy theorist. If you say it’s good, you get a column in the New York Times. The same now plays out with the 2020 election. If you think the election was rigged and that’s bad, you’re a conspiracy theorist. If you think it was a good thing, then you’re a mainstream journalist laughing at being a member of the cabal.
It’s yet another “mask off” moment for the system, which have been piling up in the days since January 6. Liberal elites are emboldened to announce that this is their country, not yours. The nauseating exploitation of the term “our democracy” speaks to this. Backroom deals, cabals, secret pressure campaigns, corporate collusion, media censorship, and organized violence are all good for “our democracy.” What threatens “our democracy” are unreconstructed white people. These enemies may only just vote the wrong way and say politically incorrect things, but that’s far more frightening than Antifa laying siege to entire cities. “Democracy” simply means rule by the self-anointed elites and their supporters. It does not allow for the white majority to have a say.
There’s a level of relief now among liberal elites where they know the threat is under control. Sure, they whip up hysteria about “white nationalist terrorists” and demand they be drone striked and interned in prison camps. (The drone strike idea is no exaggeration.) But this is more about exerting power than genuine fear-mongering. The system and its lackeys know they’re back in control — that’s why they call for such extreme measures. Now they can do things like purge the military of all Right-wingers and brainwash the troops with critical race theory. It’s their democracy.
It will probably come out that this cabal forced states to engage in all kinds of dubious election techniques for the sake of democracy. For instance, a Virginia court ruled last month that the state’s acceptance of late ballots without a postmark was illegal. This may be the first of many examples where the election rules are deemed illegal.
It still won’t matter. Trump can’t win the election anymore, and his most ardent supporters are being jailed and censored. The system is in full control and it can now admit its crime. It’s not like anyone can challenge its power at the moment.
The system is doing its best to tell white Americans that this is not their country anymore. Yet, too many whites still cling to the nation’s institutions and “norms.” They still see the troops as fighting for them, the courts as mediating for them, and the intelligence services as protecting them. They may have qualms about the election, but “norms” dictate that they accept what’s given. There are many whites like Zach Wamp who will dedicate their energy to ensuring their own people can’t take power because it would upset “civility.” It’s a horrible mindset we must dispense with. White Americans should give no respect to the system’s institutions and norms. All they do is hold us down and block us from saving ourselves.
America may yet still have an election that allows the historic American people to take back some measure of authority. The grand cabal can’t last forever and its adjoining members will eventually divide in the Biden era. Trump nearly succeeded in securing the 2020 election despite the conspiracy’s best efforts. Another America First candidate can still win an election.
While elections are good for advancing our cause, they can never directly lead us to victory as long as the Empire of Nothing remains strong. The empire must decline for our people to rise.

It’s safe to say that 2020 was an irregular election. A summer of pre planned riots toterrlrize and blackmail whites, a systematic deplatforming of rightwing influencers during the summer riots. An insanely hostile press calling Trump a liar at every turn and of course the suspension of the practice of the secret ballot. Any system that allows a ballot to be seen by anyone but the voter and the counter is asking for intimidation and terrorism. And obviously Covid19 was used as a weapon.
Many left wingers will regret what they’ve done here. Trump wasn’t a Fascist and he was barely even a Conservative in practice. They’ve shit all over the sanctity of the polling booth and secret ballot and the gentlemen’s agreement of playing fair with procedure. Gloves are off.
Physiognomy is real. She has slightly far apart eyes like a deer. Nature’s Prey. It’s a trait often seen in women with genetic origins in the British Isles or Eire. Anya Taylor-Joy has an extreme though attractive version of the Deer Eye thing. Paul McCartney has it.
She’s not Jewish is she?
Personal life Ball is of Jewish heritage and was raised in Colorado and Idaho. She graduated from Yale University in 2001. She is married and has three children.
While it is admirable to argue that the cabal was formed and completely legal, the truth is that the election was rigged. Keep in mind where this article originated. The push for the past few weeks is to completely silence any talk of vote theft and ballot stuffing. Instead Trump and his supporters were altogether ‘outsmarted.’ President Trump stayed ahead of the opposition every step of the way. For 3 and a half years. So no, I cannot be convinced that they finally put their heads together and subdued the President.
The election was rigged, plain and simple. Now, the question is, ‘What are YOU going to do about it?’ Unfortunately, most will answer-I will submit.
Mail in ballot is not out smarting anyone. Its obviously the problem. Open to abuses tat can’t even be quanitified. What is described here is also the collusion of Labor Unions and Woke Capital to dispossess the white population. That’s a huge groundbreaking admission.
It is almost impossible to prove election fraud.
See the “Box 13 Scandal”. This was election fraud that got LBJ into the Senate. Even when it was demonstrated that fraud took place, the election results still were not overturned.
Statistical anomalies, like those presented as proof of fraud in the recent election, just do not provide enough proof. Millions of Biden votes showing up at 4AM, and a coin landing on its edge, are both possible…
However, if the fraud involved creating and delivering boxes of phoney “mail in ballots”, there should be some people out there right now who could testify. Now THAT would be strong evidence.
Remember, conspiracies are gossamer structures. Just one witness-informer can knock out a huge conspiracy in one blow. Somebody is out there, right now, who could do this.
And this is only the stuff they’re admitting.
I know. It’s unfortunate that she’s setting such a bad example.
There are two possible explanations for this crowing about “fortifying democracy.”
1) These people are narcissistic psychopaths, and like most narcissistic psychopaths, they can’t help but crow about how clever they are;
2) Ordinary, everyday Americans are digging in their heels in a way they never anticipated, and despite their best efforts, the corruption allegations aren’t going away like they usually do.
While the more technologically talented are digging into irregularities in voting machines and foreign IP addresses which accessed voting machines and deleted votes, the less technologically are signing affidavits, testifying in public hearings, and following corrupt election officials around photographing them every time they try to destroy the evidence. The Arizona state senate is insisting on conducting a REAL audit of the machines like a dog that has a bone, while a tiny Michigan county has convinced a judge in a “nobody” school board court case that the voting machines, indeed, had breathtaking levels of irregularities.
Just as the leftists prepared their brainwashed voters that there would be a “Red Mirage” before (of course) the vote would go to Joe Biden once ALL of the votes were counted, this smacks of a preemptive propaganda piece to claim they did all these purportedly “legal” things to “fortify” the election so they can distance themselves from whoever finally gets charged with treason as “that person acted OUTSIDE of our little cabal.”
Remember …. there are 25 outstanding court cases, including Sydney Powell’s. Trump has won 14 of the other 21 cases. Refusing to look at the evidence hasn’t caused riots (much as they decry the January 6th protest), but it -IS- causing quite a few states to pass legislation telling the federal government to go f–k off, and Texas is talking secession. At some point, the corruption will be too much for one of the judges to slough off and they’re going to REALLY dig into the evidence. The left is acting desperate. One just needs to look at how desperately they censor evidence online or their irrational attempt to impeach a president after he’s out of office. Why? So he can never serve again? Or because they know darned well he’s the SITTING president, and if they get caught, they’re all going to gitmo for treason?
NO … I am not a Qanon follower. I do not “trust the plan.” My doctoral thesis was in propaganda and its impact on the law, and this asinine article smacks of preemptive propaganda to paint themselves as “heroes” when the excrement hits the fan because they know they’ve gotten caught.
“Political activities, which at first remain buried beneath a cloak of secrecy (think TPP) and when finally accomplished and secured are slowly revealed to the unsuspecting populace who watch, in horrified helplessness. … The term, “The Revelation of the Method” was coined by the late James Shelby Downard, to explain the alchemical processing of a society by its Luciferian controllers…. Downard was highly aware that by exposing the Revelation of the Method, he was probably serving the final dictum in the controllers’ alchemical formula, whose ultimate message is: “Resistance is futile.” https://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/revelation-of-the-method-introduction/
Hey, have you ever heard this: I play chess and there is this sort of wack polish master called valery salov, he was third in the world back in the 90s, who claims that the 1995 world championship match of chess between Kasparov and anand was a cabbalistic ritual based on revelation of the method. It was held in the World Trade Center. The first game was on 9/11. In two games there were “tower” aka rook sacrifices and for those games the match was moved to the observation deck! All true, except the part about the rook sacs—I have to look back at the tournament book too see if that’s true. It’s very eerie. And that he says cabbalustic. Few would make that association who did not Know.
It’s funny that you mention chess.
I have batted around the idea that Trump v Biden was like a Chess match where White is only in control of half his pieces reliably. Most of the pawns will move when moved, but the Rooks, Bishops and Queen can remain fixed in place. The knights move around freely but the White can’t rely on the Rook and Bishop. This forces the King to move early and adopt strange defensive and offensive measures to compensate for a lack of backup to the Pawns and Knights. That’s Trump’s Loud obnoxious Twitter habit. Meanwhile Black vetoes White moves in secret. Even Biden himself is just the equivalent of a Black Bishop or Rook as it turns out.
This is actually quite a good illustration.
Was that in reply to the chess analogy?
Formatting is off on my interface.
If so, Trump was forced to do several erratic moves as a king piece to compensate for a lack of action from a truculent and taciturn rogues gallery of cabinet members, generals and media personalities. the Twitter feed was a sad part of unreliable subordinates who failed to act repeatedly. Trump did have pawns willing to sacrifice themselves and knights that showed up in dangerous positions but the back row of pieces were just sitting there idle.
So I studied the issue and there are room sacrifices in games 9, 10, and 11. The match is remembered lovingly by fans for this series of stunning sacs. But this sort of sacrifice is very rare in top level chess. They occurred in games 9-11! Eerie.
Damn you James J. O’Meara !
After reading this article, I was about to mention “The Revelation of the Method”.
As you say, the term was coined by the late James Shelby Downard, but the theory is perhaps better known from – and is more elaborated in – Michael A. Hoffman II’s “Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare”. It’s a paranoid right-wing conspiracy theory but – if not taken literally – is an instructive attempt to create a new myth for our times, in the spirit of those first-century Gnostics or William Blake’s mythological poems. I recommend the book for those C-C readers who are moored to The Real and are psychologically stable.
Another America First candidate can win an election? After 11 to 20 million illegals are given the vote? I don’t see the usefulness of clinging to such clearly misplaced hopes.
The proposed amnesty won’t go into effect before the next presidential election.
Maybe but it doesn’t matter. With present levels of corruption in American “democracy” many of those illegals will be voting anyway. This really matters in states trending blue because of demographics, such as Texas. Hordes of illegals voting may be enough to tip close elections such as 2022/2024 that would be otherwise winnable by the worthless Republicans. The precedent has been set in 2020, elections can be rigged and nothing will be done about it.
A lot of the rule changes that helped the rigging in 2020 will be legally challenged and overturned in the coming years. There’s no point is being defeatist.
Was there a livestream this weekend past?
You are correct sir, there is no need to be defeatist although the odds are stacked against us. That said, the momentum is on the side of the Left, they believe they have nothing to fear now. The Republican establishment is useless, they don’t have an ounce of fight in them and much of the judiciary has been captured by the Left over the years.
What I believe will happen though is that the Dementia Joe/President Kuntmala Harris administration will fail spectacularly such that it scares the Hell out of normie voters. In foreign policy the Government is antagonizing China while threatening war against Iran for “Our Greatest Ally’s” benefit. At the same time the Government’s diversity crusade will hollow out the military of its most capable members, White men in the service. This is insane, it invites failure if there is a war.
Regarding economics gallons of ink have been spilled about the reckless fiscal policies of the U.S. Government over decades to no avail. It looks like serious inflation will be returning for the first time since the 1970’s which will devastate already hard pressed middle class White people. Added to this is the unpredictable nature of the negro insurrection which may flare up at any time.
Events will be in the saddle, all bad, which will cause a White backlash in 2022. The miserable Republicans will benefit from it and try to defuse public anger instead of doing the right thing, their corporate masters calling the tune. Hopefully though public anger will be harnessed by the Right to defeat the Left and the horrible Republicans. The certain failure of the Left to govern, especially in a time of crisis will discredit the Left providing an opening for the Right. The Republican establishment is busy discrediting itself and maybe won’t be an obstacle this time.
Another Jew reveals the method:
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich

Well, everybody except the goyim.
Rank and file members of unions affiliated to the AFL-CIO should remember Mr Podhorzer’s role in this dubious coalition.
They should ask Mr Podhorzer whether the ‘democracy’ he saved will reverse the ever declining labour share of GDP.
Whether it will provide decent, affordable healthcare for working Americans?
Whether it will give hope and purpose to the poorest white Americans, struggling with substance abuse and suicide?
In Australia, the ACTU infamously teamed up with big business in 2018 to support mass immigration. This did nothing to halt the decline in union membership, down from 45% of the working population in 1986 to about 14% now. Organised labour in Western countries is in crisis because, like the social democratic parties it supports, it has lost sight of who it’s meant to serve.
Behind the scenes fundraising, political strategizing and activism is nothing new. Nor is it proof of “rigging”. As usual, liberals win because they were more committed, more energetic and more intelligent than conservatives. Now the Right is getting trolled by mainstream media about its inferiority.
The marriage of the corporate CEO and Labour Union for political convenience isn’t proof of leftwing intelligence. More so the spiritual bankruptcy of that wing of politics. You can’t defeat absolute depravity like that so easily. Trump had his flaws like Zionism and Bombastic Twitter accounts; but an alignment that puts Microsoft Apple Google and Amazon in bed with AFL CIO is sickening shit.
Democracy? Ha ha! Who cares brothers and sisters?! It’s not a democracy of our people. Anyway, truth bomb, the problem is with white people, not the elites or the oligarchs or the brown people or democrats. We are under a spell. A hypnosis that bars us from being able to identify threats to our future. We believe everybody thinks like we do. But they don’t. We believe in the laughable and unnatural concept of egalitarianism. Without white people, the enemies of white people would be easy to identify and defeat. That makes us the problem.
She doesn’t look anything like the (probably) airbrushed photo in the article, so why did the author use it? This absurd creature is about as American as Jeffrey Epstein or George Soros, and not much better looking judging by other photos. As a New Yorker I’ve never, not ever, not once known anyone in my life who’s taken any Jewish shit like hers from pushy Jews like her, and I worked on Wall Street. And I mean not ever. This is all a bunch of shit enforced by the goy jelly-donut cops who don’t have the balls to stand up for their country let alone the survival of their own freakin’ children, and yet these cowards in blue have the freakin’ gall to say they have to do what they do because they’re “just obeying orders.” For non-New Yorkers who take this shit lying down, as if there’s real power behind these creeps beyond the Jews’ white flunkies in police uniforms who make it happen, wake up, because if the wind changes, America’s cops will be licking your spit off the pavement, too.
I have heard this ceaseless bleating about what a threat Trump was to our democracy since before he won the GOP nomination, yet not once was it spelled out with anything specific how he threatened our democracy, (putting aside for the moment that we’re a republic).
There were vague accusations against Trump of collusion with the Russians, which turned out to be false, and they appear more to have been fabricated to distract the electorate from Mrs. Clinton’s own misbehaviour.
As has been noted, the accusation of threatening our democracy appears to be a false Alinskyian charge to distract the rubes from the fact that Trump seemed, at least for a time, to be a competent threat to the leftists of both major parties’ subverting the historical US and the rule of law.
It’s never been spelled out. DEMOCRACY is just another word for agreeing with Chris Hayes opinions.
“They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it.”
This reminds me of what David Cole said after the JDF put a $20,000 hit on him for contradicting the Auschwitz gas chambers narrative. See, he wasn’t “denying” the Holocaust. He was just ironing out a small detail to make the story even more believable. To “fortify it” is actually the term he used.
