- THE PATRIOT POST - Dec 3, 2020 -
The president laid out a passionate and detailed case against voter fraud.
“This may be the most important speech I’ve ever made.”
So began a lengthy address by President Donald Trump from the White House yesterday, during which he laid out in detail many of the anomalies, irregularities, and instances of indisputable fraud that have marred our nation’s November 3 presidential election.
The president’s speech was announced on Twitter and posted on Facebook. Remarkably, it’s still available. And you needn’t have a Facebook account to watch it; you can simply bypass the sign-in prompt. The president’s remarks are about 45 minutes long, and, if you care about our Republic, you should watch them in their entirety. But we’ll try to hit some of the key points below.
Or, if you’d prefer to feel your blood boil, you can check out the coverage given the speech by the incurious and dishonest leftist hacks in the mainstream media. As Wall Street Journal reporters Andrew Restuccia and Alex Leary dismissed it, the speech was “the latest rhetorical escalation by the president as he continues to contest the results of an election he lost.”
An election he lost. Strange. We can’t lay our finger upon that article of the Constitution which says that The Wall Street Journal or The New York Times or the Associated Press is vested with the power to determine the winners and losers of our nation’s presidential elections, nor our local dog-catcher elections, for that matter.
The president merely “ticked through a slew of statements that have been proved false or that his campaign hasn’t substantiated in court,” according to the Journal’s reporters, without once mentioning the hundreds of sworn affidavits (read: evidence) that U.S. citizens have provided to the Trump legal team.
The president began by noting his duty to ensure the integrity of what he called our greatest privilege, the right to vote. “As president, I have no higher duty than to defend the laws and the Constitution of the United States. That is why I am determined to protect our election system, which is now under coordinated assault and siege. … The constitutional process must be allowed to continue. We’re going to defend the honesty of the vote by ensuring that every legal ballot is counted and that no illegal ballot is counted. This is not just about honoring the votes of 74 million Americans who voted for me, it’s about ensuring that Americans can have faith in this election and in all future elections.”
