What does it mean to “rig an election”? Well, when someone uses that expression, we usually think of contaminating the vote at the polls. Is that being done? Probably, but in America the vote is counted by local governments in 50 different states. So except in a close election it is difficult to win an election by rigging the vote.
Nevertheless, Donald Trump has said the election is rigged. Here is how CNN plays the story.
Donald Trump and his surrogates amplified their argument over the weekend that the election is “rigged,” leaving the Republican nominee more isolated as top members of the GOP — including his own running mate — declared their faith in the political system.
Trump opened Sunday with a series of tweets sowing doubt about the legitimacy of the election.
“The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary – but also at many polling places – SAD”
But Trump’s own vice presidential nominee, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, disagreed during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” saying he will accept the Election Day results.
“We will absolutely accept the result of the election,” he said. “Look, the American people will speak in an election that will culminate on November the 8. But the American people are tired of the obvious bias in the national media. That’s where the sense of a rigged election goes here, Chuck.” (from here)
Are Trump and Mike Pence in disagreement? Listen to what Trump says about 8 minutes and 30 seconds into this video.
Also consider the latest investigation to come out of projectveritasaction.com. I heard about this when Mark Levin interviewed James O’Keefe on his show. That discussion starts at about 20 minutes into the recorded version of the 10/17/2016 episode. (Click here to download the show in a different format.). After the interview with Levin, projectveritasaction.com crashed, of course, but they are back up.
Note also that Real Clear Politics is carrying the story here => New O’Keefe Video: Clinton Campaign, DNC Coordinated With Organizations To Incite Violence At Trump Events.
projectveritasaction.com has a report documenting efforts by H. Clinton’s campaign and other Democrat operatives to foment violence at Trump rallies.
A second video is supposed to come out tomorrow.
Finally, take the time to investigate some of the stuff coming out of WikiLeaks.
