Trump's Path to a Second Term Still Possible


December 2, 2020

With over 1,000 affidavits from persons of both parties swearing under penalty of perjury to have personally witnessed voter fraud, such cannot be dismissed lightly but has been by most Democrats and their media outlets. Were it the other way around they would see it everywhere.

Democrat media outlets, mostly every outlet excepting Fox News and Newsmax, pipe two messages, “There is nothing to see here and if there were corruption it is not enough to make a difference in the election.” Democrat platforms Twitter, Google, YouTube, and Facebook censor the evidence showing corruption as quickly as their algorithms find it, just as they did prior to the election with thousands of Hunter Biden laptop emails and Tony Bobulinski’s evidence of Joe Biden corruption in China. But they cannot yet remove everything. Nothing to see here either—unless you are willing to get beyond the controlled presses. Freedom of the press and “real” journalism are quickly becoming an endangered species.

So what is Trump’s path to a second term? Two exist, both depend upon following the Constitution. The first, is using the constitutional process through the presidents legal team headed by Rudy Giuliani. This takes time and patience. Either side can challenge the results in state courts. Local election officials count ballots and announce results. At this point all votes: illegal, dead persons, same person multiple ballots, and etc. remain counted in each state unless contested and removed by court order. These are alleged to have given Biden the win. Almost all battleground states are led by Democrat governors and judges who used any method available to count these normally unlawful or illegal votes. Consequentially Trump’s legal team expected to lose most cases in these state courts and did.

State judges sometimes uphold a challenge and order a recount, as in Georgia. But this still is only a count of ALL votes and may not change anything because without a court order to remove, the fraudulent votes are just counted again. Democrats want every vote, even illegal, to count. Republicans insist that only citizens and legal votes should count as in every election since 1789. To get this to happen Trump must get his case beyond the potentially corrupt or biased state courts to a district court, then to a circuit court and, if failing there, appeal directly to the Supreme Court. A favorable vote here is likely because the Constitution supports only legal votes.

The Trump legal team believes they have time to make this happen and the courts try to accommodate the emergency situation. They firmly believe that this is the most corrupt election in U.S. History with Trump entitled to 410 Electoral College votes and a popular vote of 70%, translating into at least 80 million votes. They will focus on the 14th Amendment especially Section I due process and equal protection of the law, clauses.

The second path to a second term for Trump is led by Sidney Powell, former federal prosecutor, independent of the President’s legal team but working with them and choosing to be self funded. It hypothesizes that Smartmatic software used in Dominion machines in at least 28 states and in 2000 jurisdictions throughout the nation was specifically designed to “rig elections” and had done so previously in Venezuela, Chile, Mongolia and Argentina. She argues that she has evidence that will prove that “officers in the states who bought the software….know that they can win the election if they are using that software.” If so, this is treason described in Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, perhaps even another coup to unseat a duly elected president, and should easily disqualify the “Biden win.”

That Dominion was created in Venezuela to help the socialist Hugo Chavez government remain in power and is headquartered in Canada adds a foreign component to the puzzle—“foreign owned and created with communist money,” says Powell, hence the possibility of foreign intervention in our election. Apparently, hackers could “stick a thumb drive in the machine or load software to it, even from the Internet. They can do it from Germany or Venezuela. They can remote access anything. They can watch votes in real time. They can shift votes in real time” (Sunday With Maria, Sidney Powell and Maria Bartiromo, November 15, 2020).

Why the servers housing vote data regarding the 2020 election were housed in Barcelona, Spain and Frankfort, Germany, extremely vulnerable to vote manipulation, no one has explained. Raids by U.S. forces, confiscated these sources shortly after the election. We apparently have the raw vote data.

Trump attorney Lin Wood, examined Powell’s evidence and tweeted “Dominion was [a] Communist voting system used to control our election.” And another, “In 2020, Communist China materially interfered with our election.” Lou Dobbs told viewers Nov. 23 that “Dominion donated $25-50k to the Clinton Foundation and received from the same a “$2.2 million contract. Dominion also hired Nancy Pelosi’s former chief of staff.” Yet another source ties Dominion to George Soros. So much yet to learn!

Either path for a Trump 2nd term requires that the evidence be presented before the Supreme Court and time is running short. On November 24, three positive rulings came down for Trump attorneys, a Nevada court agreed to hear the evidence presented by the Trump legal team. In Michigan state lawmakers agreed to look into “irregularities and anomalies” that have plagued the election. In Pennsylvania the Third Circuit Court of Appeals has granted the Trump campaign’s request to review a lower courts dismissal of the campaign’s request to stop the states certification (Lou Dobbs, November 24, 2020). The tide may be turning in Trump’s favor.
