The headline from The New York Instances said this:
Trump Targets Michigan in His Ploy to Subvert the Election
In a brazen step, the president invited Republican state leaders in Michigan to the White Home as he and his allies attempt to forestall the state from certifying Joe Biden’s clear victory there.
And over in The Washington Put up was this headline: “Trump makes use of energy of presidency to attempt to overturn the election and keep in workplace.”
I’m scripting this column from suburban Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the State Capitol constructing a mere couple miles away throughout the Susquehanna River. And in that Capitol Friday there was scheduled by the Republican-controlled State Authorities Committee of the Pennsylvania Home of Representatives a listening to as a part of the committee’s investigation into the election.
The scheduled witnesses had been representatives of Dominion. And lo and behold on Thursday night time, the literal night time earlier than the listening to, State Consultant Seth Grove, the Committee chairman, was notified that, in his phrases, Dominion had “lawyered up” and backed out of the listening to. Said Chairman Grove:
“Final night Dominion voting programs lawyered up and backed out of their dedication to the folks of Pennsylvania to offer enter in a public format wherein 1.3 [million] Pennsylvanian’s entrusted. As a substitute of working towards the sunshine of honesty and integrity, Dominion Voting Methods retreated to the darkness.
Why? Why would a vendor of public items worry discussing their merchandise offered to the general public for the general public good? If Dominion’s merchandise had been profitable and operated as they had been alleged to why would not Dominion take the chance to publicly assessment its success?
How laborious is it to say our poll machines labored precisely as promised and they’re one hundred pc correct? Why after weeks of accusations has Dominion Voting Methods not launched any evaluation of the success of their voting machines to the general public as a way to cease their accusers of their tracks?
In the event that they don’t have anything to cover, why are they hiding from us? I’m unhappy to report back to the tax payers of Pennsylvania, the 1.3 million voters who trusted Dominion Voting Methods with their ballots that Dominion Voting Methods has hung you out to dry and slapped you in your faces.”
Hmmm. As that is written, this information is nowhere to be present in The Washington Put up. It’s nowhere to be present in The New York Instances. Possibly it can sooner or later. Possibly.
A lot much less have both paper assigned a Woodward and Bernstein-style investigation of simply what’s going on with election fraud on this nation and the position of voting system corporations on this enterprise.
Hmm. Isn’t this curious.
The Trump authorized staff has been making allegations in regards to the lack of safety surrounding voting system corporations. And the media is frantically making an attempt to debunk them when not ignoring them altogether, now saying that to contest the outcomes produced by these corporations is nothing lower than making an attempt to subvert the election.
However unusually, as soon as upon a time — that might be December of 2019 — there was a completely completely different strategy within the liberal media.
On December 6, 2019 Democratic Senators Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, and Oregon’s Ron Wyden, together with Wisconsin Democrat Congressman Mark Pocan, wrote a prolonged, detailed and footnoted letter to the 2 co-chairmen of an funding agency referred to as H.I.G.Capital, LLC. The corporate is predicated in Miami, Florida.
The letter wished data on the corporate’s funding in Hart InterCivic, Inc., described as “one among three election know-how distributors chargeable for growing, manufacturing and sustaining the overwhelming majority of voting machines and software program in the US, and to request details about your agency’s construction and funds because it pertains to this firm.”
The letter additionally stated:
“We’re significantly involved that secretive and ‘hassle plagued corporations’ owned by personal fairness companies and chargeable for manufacturing and sustaining voting machines and different election administration gear, ‘have lengthy skimped on safety in favor of comfort,’ leaving voting programs throughout the nation ‘susceptible to safety issues.’”
Word the quote marks in that part of this five-page, footnoted-in-detail letter? The quotes are taken from this 2018 story discovered at, sure, the Associated Press. The headline of that AP piece: “US election integrity is determined by security-challenged companies.”
As a sign of simply how widespread was this concern over election safety by the liberal media earlier than the 2020 election returns had been in are the liberal media and assume tank or activist websites sources listed by the letter from Senator Warren and her colleagues. They embrace:
The Related Press
The Penn Wharton Public Coverage Initiative
The Brennan Middle for Justice
The U.S. Election Help Fee
The Obama-era Division of Homeland Safety with Secretary Jeh Johnson
The New York Instances
Cease Wall Avenue Looting
Discover the itemizing of The New York Instances by Warren and the remaining? One follows the hyperlink that the Democrat Senators supplied — here — and one finds this Instances piece from November of 2018. The headline:
A Pennsylvania County’s Election Day Nightmare Underscores Voting Machine Issues
How “all the things went fallacious” in Northampton County.
That’s proper. The Instances was alarmed on the leads to Northampton County, the place critical flaws with the voting machine programs gave a Democratic candidate for decide a mere 140 votes out of 55,000 forged. Stated the Democratic County chairman: “Individuals had been questioning, and even I questioned, that if a number of the numbers are fallacious, how do we all know that there aren’t errors with anything?”
So to sum up? As soon as upon a time the liberal media was repeatedly insisting that the election voting programs had been prone to all method of safety issues. They wrote it up — quite a bit.
However now? To query this self-same downside when the election includes Trump it’s abruptly unpatriotic. For the Trump marketing campaign to demand an investigation – echoing what Elizabeth Warren and her Democratic colleagues had been saying in 2019 – and abruptly the self-same liberal media, as represented by these newest headlines from the Instances and Put up, is now subverting an election, overturning it to remain in workplace.
Hypocrisy on steroids. No shock.
