Donald Trump is asking the voters to volunteer to be election observers to help prevent the temptation of Democrats (or even disgruntled members of the Republican party) to behave unethically during this year’s presidential election.
In what is being described as an “unprecedented” move by a presidential candidate, Donald Trump’s campaign website launched a form that volunteers can fill out to enroll as an election observer at the polls in November. This move comes on the heel of Donald Trump commenting at his rally in Altoona, PA, that the only way he will lose Pennsylvania is if there is cheating.
Although the mainstream media is no doubt mocking Trump, claiming that our elections are as ethical and sound as they have ever been, his concern is not without reason.
In fact, in June a major lawsuit was launched against the Clinton campaign by the Institute for American Democracy and Election Integrity, claiming that exit polls versus the actual primary election results in at least 9 states were far enough apart to warrant investigation. The Clinton campaign is also being sued in Massachusetts for election fraud, with claims of voter manipulation and Bill Clinton showing up at polling stations to campaign, which is illegal.
There are also claims of Barack Obama receiving 100% of the possible voters registered in over 100 urban precincts in swing states like Ohio during the 2012 election.
To rig an election, massive amounts of voter fraud wouldn’t even have to take place across the entire country, it only needs to occur frequently enough in highly populated areas of a handful of swing states to prove effective.
Since this year’s election will likely come down to a few of those swing states, it’s certainly not beyond the realm of possibility that groups of hard core anti-Trump poll workers could decide that the ends justify the means. Certainly the media isn’t helping by instilling fear and dread into the minds of voters, making claims of doom and gloom should Donald Trump happen to get elected. Perhaps some people who are working the polls could get it into their heads that Trump must be stopped, no matter the cost.
And as Clinton’s favorite role model Joseph Stalin said, it’s not about how many people vote, but who counts the vote that determines the winner.
In reality, Donald Trump would never have won the Republican primaries if he didn’t have the overwhelming support of the voters, as he was fighting assaults on all fronts, even within in his own party. I imagine the presidential election in November won’t be too much different, and Trump will need all the help that he can get to overcome the corrupt forces working against him and his voters. Even the tech giants like Apple, Twitter and Instagram have colluded to try and reduce the support of Donald Trump on social media.
We are witnessing an unprecedented amount of organized government and corporate opposition to a presidential candidate, which begs the questions, what are all these powerful organizations so afraid of in a President who isn’t owned by donors and lobbyists? Why is the establishment media throwing unbiased reporting to the wind, revealing their true loyalty to the government power structure rather than to the people, and openly admitting they are doing everything they can to stop Trump?
The answer is, Donald Trump is not beholden to anyone except the American public, and that scares the hell out of corrupt politicians who make a living off of selling their influence, and it certainly terrifies the large corporations that would lose their influence over our elected officials.
To put it plainly, those in power don’t want to be beholden to the citizens of America, they would rather keep the status quo as is, and continue making millions of dollars off bribes and special interest groups.
You can enroll to become an election observer with the Trump campaign here.
Donald Trump’s campaign is seeking to recruit “election observers” following the Republican nominee’s repeated claims that the general election is “rigged.”
In a move that’s unprecedented in a presidential election, the campaign late this week launched a page on its website proclaiming, “Help Me Stop Crooked Hillary From Rigging This Election! Please fill out this form to receive more information about becoming a volunteer Trump Election Observer.”
Those who wish to be a Trump “observer” are asked to fill out information on the website that should match their voter registration. Once submitted, voters are directed to a donation page.
Hours before the site gained traction Friday night, Trump said at a rally in Altoona, Pennsylvania, that the only way he would lose in Pennsylvania is “if cheating goes on.”
“She can’t beat what’s happening here. The only way they can beat it in my opinion, and I mean this 100 percent, if in certain sections of the state they cheat,” Trump said of Clinton campaign in Pennsylvania.
Although laws vary from state to state, campaigning by political parties is typically banned at polling sites under voter intimidation laws.
