Liberals Setting the Stage to Claim 2020 Election Results Illegitimate

liberals election results Nancy Pelosi Drug costs impeachment left heightsIn the lead-up to the 2016 election, Democrats fretted openly about the possibility that Donald Trump, being a rather poor sport, might refuse to acknowledge an election loss.

To be fair, Trump refused to state that he would accept election results, depending on the circumstances: “I’ll keep you in suspense,” he stated in his Oct. 19, 2016, debate with Hillary Clinton. Clinton, for her part, called his statement “horrifying,” adding that he was harming American democracy.

Trump, of course, won. And Clinton spent the next couple of years suggesting openly that she had been robbed in the election. Democrats blamed Clinton’s election loss on Russian interference, on voter suppression, on anything but Clinton’s campaign performance.

That wasn’t a particular shock: After George W. Bush won the 2000 election, many Democrats continued to maintain that he was an illegitimate president.

And not much changed in the nearly two decades since: In 2018, Democrats insisted that Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams had actually defeated Brian Kemp, despite having lost by approximately 55,000 votes. To this day, Democratic presidential candidates repeat the lie that Kemp stole the election from Abrams.

Now in the run-up to 2020, Democrats are already suggesting that if Trump wins, the election will have been illegitimate.

This time, they’re pointing to Trump’s supposed attempt to gather information from the Ukrainian government on potential 2020 rival Joe Biden in return for release of much-needed military aid. In fact, Democrats state that if Trump is not impeached, the 2020 results will inevitably be deemed improper.

On Sunday, Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., who suggested way back in 2017 that though Trump was “legally elected,” he was “not legitimate,” doubled down: “The president, based on his past performance, will do everything he can to make it not a fair election. And this is part of what gives us the urgency to proceed with this impeachment.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said last week, “The president leaves us no choice but to act because he is trying to corrupt, once again, the election for his own benefit.”

Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “If you have a corrupt executive who is willing to maintain power by corrupting our election, there’s an urgency there.”

Former federal prosecutor Anne Milgram wrote in The New York Times, “Who gets to pick the next president of the United States—President Trump, Ukraine, Russia or us?”

Impeachment, then, must be used without proper evidence of a crime in order to prevent Trump from stealing the election. By this logic, any suspicion of illegitimacy in an upcoming election becomes an excuse for ousting a legitimately elected president.

This is a vicious cycle: illegitimate impeachments based on perception of illegitimate elections. And with Pelosi promising that our very civilization is at stake—a contention she made over the weekend—over the outcome of the next election, we can be sure that the pressure will continue to rise.

Things are already ugly in American politics. A republic can only be maintained when the people have faith that even if their side loses an election, that election was legitimate—and only when people believe that there is a tomorrow.

With Democrats openly claiming that they can run an end-around with the electoral process because they don’t trust the results, and stating that any future loss is evidence of corruption and a representation of the end of the country, things are about to get a lot uglier.

The left maintains that unless illegal immigrants Convicted felons children under the age of 12 and the deceased are allowed to vote the election will be rigged.

It has become infinitely clear that the Dems cannot win an election without lying, cheating, falsifying, and stealing them away! We will see 4 more years of President Trump’s dominance on the international stage, and we will have to endure 4 more years of churlish petulance and endless protests. The difference in the next 4 years to this current? Our President will be in the driver’s seat and will be able to exact revenge against the anti-American fascists that permeate the left! Their fate is sealed and their party will be in ruin within a very short period of time!

Americans do not think the devilocrats led by Killery & OBUTTMA have not organized armies including most illegals to fight for what they deem right. The snake that is their army needs to have its heads cut off. Time to stop this now.

Amazing that the left feels we have to impeach President Trump for something he MIGHT do in the future. If this is the new rule of law, everyone in America should be locked up because of something they MIGHT do in the future. Great article. Glad I am a member of AMAC.

Pa-loose-y loves everyone, says she.
When Nancy and her husband were searching for a house to buy in California they did an exhaustive search.
They finally found the “perfect” one.
BUT when Nancy learned the owner was a Republican she refused to buy it.
Nancy loves everyone? Except Republicans?
She calls herself a Catholic?
Catholics love everyone including Nancy BUT they do not condone her behavior.

There is no accusation, act, threat or insinuation that is too low for the liberal scum, they have no morals, ethics, conscience, integrity, nor decency.

I am so tired of this nonsense. I doubt Obama was legitimate, not real sure he was a citizen.

His college transcripts will prove that Obama was a foreign exchange student because his stepfather had his American citizenship changed to Indonesian citizenship so he could attend Indonesian schools.

To put this in Biblical terms: 1. In prosperity, the people get comfortable and forget God. 2. God sends a wicked nation to oppress them. 3. The people repent and cry out to God. 4. God delivers them from their wicked oppressors. This cycle occurred many times, especially in the period of the OT judges. I think the USA is somewhere between step 3 and step 4 right now.

I am 80 years old so I have been exposed to politics all my life, but nothing has me more frustrated and angry than what is going on in Washington right now. I am just finishing my third book written by Don Winslow about Mexican drug cartels and although the books are fiction there is alot of truth in them.
Needless to say how shocked I was to read about nine family members gunned down on their way to visit family. There was a other incident just this past week where people were gunned down in a town close to the US border, yet Pelosi and Shu
mer insisted we don’t need a wall. I don’t think it was because we need it
It was because Trump thought we needed it. I live in a state. that borders with Mexico and our Democratic controlled state also said a wall isn’t necessary, yet alot of our crime is committed by people coming across the border, not to mention murders are committed by
illigals who run back to Mexico to avoid being arrested.
I wish people would take the time to read these three books starting with The Cartel . They were a real eye
opener as to what is going on today

When the Democrats were in control they all said that we need the wall, we need to protect our borders. But since Donald Trump has been in office none of that is a good idea anymore. And they think there’s no proof of their flip flops!

By his opinion that President Trump “was legally elected, but not legitimate,” Nadler means that Trump is not a good communist.

Funny the Democrats have no problem with outside interference and/or voter fraud with the 2018 election. Oh, that’s right, because they won back the House. And it wasn’t a presidential election. But same voting machines, same polling places, same poll watchers…..

Here’s one possible solution… IMPEACH CONGRESS! Send them all home and elect people who will work together to help ALL AMERICANS.

But we do have some truly awesome House members who have taken the heat and stood up to Nancy and the rest of the swamp critters, so why not just impeach the impeachers? At the very least, Shifty Shift should be censured for the way he misled the public about President Trump’s telephone call to the president of Ukraine – that was a total and intentional deception.

Democrats are just plain desperate because they have NO presidential candidates that can (fairly) beat Trump. Their three top stars are a grumpy old Socialist, a yammering faux Indian, and a demented but scrappy ex vp who often doesn’t know where he is or repeats inaccurate stories of his early days (not to mention his various acts of plagiarism!). We refer to the first two as “Grandpa and Grandma Grab and Give Away” – they both say they want to take from the rich and give (healthcare, college tuition, etc.) to the poor or even “everyone” – but really, that just hits the middle class because there are never enough rich people dumb enough to lose all that money through taxation! They’ll send their money off-shore or find other ways to shelter it. Which just leaves “just biden’ (biding)-his-time-Biden, who seems to get creepier by the day, sniffing ladies’ hair or kissing fingers, etc.; Just a real “hands-on kinda guy.” Meanwhile, Jabba-the Hillary waits in the wings, just ready to swoop in on her broomstick and “rescue” the party at the convention.

The only way any of these three will beat Trump is a massive Democratic voting fraud. That’s why they want 16 year-olds to vote – they know most kids at that age are very gullible!

I am very concerned about the 2020 presidential election results and I would not be surprised by anything the elite leftists will do to win. Remember, “It’s not the people who vote that count. It’s the people who count the votes.” All of the corruption by the left needs to be exposed sooner rather than later.
