Establishment media outlets once again defy common sense by trying to bully President Donald Trump into conceding an election that is far from over.
After more than four years of the Republican firebrand thoroughly beating the mainstream media on every issue from Russian collusion to releasing his personal tax returns, it stands to reason the president will stand his ground until all the legal ballots are counted, voter fraud challenges heard by the courts, and the Electoral College ballots are finally cast. President Trump is both constitutionally and ethically right to not yield to pressure.
“The Trump team has canvassed all early voters and absentee mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania, and they found over 100 people they think were dead, but 15 people that we verified to have been dead, who voted. But here’s the one that gets me: Six people registered after they died and voted. In Pennsylvania, I guess you’re never out of it,” South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said. “President Trump should not concede. He’s going to win North Carolina. Keep fighting for every legal and live vote.”
The recently re-elected Republican Senator makes valid points across the board. President Trump is the projected winner in North Carolina, and states such as Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Georgia show such strange voting anomalies. They could very well end up in the president’s win column.
Some states triggered automatic recounts, yet the media refuses to acknowledge the process is incomplete. The mainstream media seems to believe it declares winners and losers, not state election boards that conduct recounts and resolve illegal voting issues.
Media outlets are again misleading the American public about how the constitutional process unfolds. States have until Dec. 8 to resolve disputes and certify their respective vote tallies. The Electoral College process doesn’t occur until Dec. 14. Only after 270 or more votes are cast can a candidate be legitimately deemed “president-elect.” The establishment media has acted prematurely just like they did when they tried to claim Al Gore won, only to have the “hanging chad” ballot dispute resolved in the courts. In the end, the country elected President George W. Bush and not the “global warming” cultist.
The Wall Street Journal has acted impetuously, pushing the narrative that not only is Biden “president-elect,” but the White House is wrongfully rebuffing his transition team. Given the fact battleground states haven’t certified their votes and President Trump has a pathway to a second term, Wall Street Journal headlines such as “Biden, Trump Teams in Standoff Over Transition,” and “Biden’s Election Win Was a Big Bet for These Wall Street Executives,” wreak of arrogance.
Upwards of 70 percent of Republican voters do not believe the election was free or fair, and the DOJ has launched probes into fraud. That position is undoubtedly supported by dead people registering themselves and voting for Biden. Left-leaning Politico reports that “78 percent believed that mail-in voting led to widespread voter fraud and 72 percent believed that ballots were tampered with.”
A week after Election Day, Biden’s supposed winning lead in Arizona has dwindled to less than 1 percent with enough outstanding ballots in conservative areas to sway the state’s 11 electoral votes to President Trump.
If Pennsylvania or others follow suit, the establishment media may be responsible for blood in the streets come Dec. 14. At the very least, mainstream outlets jumped the gun and acted with reckless abandon for the truth regardless of who serves the next term as President of the United States. There are politicians the left-wing media can push around. President Trump is not one of them.
