STORM SPOOKS SWAMP

Voting Fraud Rampant In Federal Elections

By Wayne Jett © November 13, 2018

     Recall only a week ago when so many Americans were looking forward to the elections being in the rear-view mirror – no more political attack ads – and life could get back to normal. Turns out that was more of the calm before the Storm. The tempo of political events clicked noticeably higher one day after the official voting day, but one week later is still only a hint of the tempest to come.

     At his first post-election press conference, President Trump described his objective in the mid-term elections: hold the Senate and strengthen reliability of votes there. He stated explicitly that the so-called Republican Senate majority of 51 senators during 2017-18 was actually a minority of 48 votes for conservative policies, with the two Arizona senators and the “retiring” Tennessee senator being RINO’s (i.e., Establishment tools). This is a level of political candor by Trump not many U. S. presidents have reached in public.

Establishment Has Controlled Both Parties

     Franklin Roosevelt was politically candid on occasion, but in private. In a very private letter early in his first term as president, FDR wrote to E. M. House (who was Wall Street’s handler of President Woodrow Wilson) that every presidential administration in U. S. history since Andrew Jackson (including Wilson’s) was “owned by” the financial sector of a certain portion of this country (Wall Street). This “financial sector” euphemism was merely an alternative way of naming the global ruling cabal, often called the Establishment.

     FDR knew and wrote the truth on that occasion, and he became the ruling cabal’s most trusted operative ever in the White House. If FDR was right, the “owned” presidents included every Democrat president except Jackson, and every Republican including Lincoln, except Garfield (nominated by a runaway convention in 1880 and shot soon after inauguration), and McKinley in his second term (also promptly shot).

     Calvin Coolidge, a very successful Republican president, could have been re-elected by landslide in 1928, but he chose not to run again. His son had died suddenly following a tennis match at the White House – probably a message that Coolidge should not run again. Thus, the way was cleared for Herbert Hoover’s nomination.

     A mere 12 years after FDR’s fourth term expired in 1948 with President Truman in the White House, President Kennedy was elected as an Establishment candidate of the Democratic Party. He narrowly defeated (with voting fraud in Texas and Illinois) Richard Nixon, an Establishment candidate of the Republican Party.

     When JFK was exposed to the Establishment’s evil goals, perhaps moral fiber he gained in military service and elsewhere took the reins of his conduct. He clearly expressed anti-Establishment views and acted on them during his partial term as president. Kennedy’s rebellion cost his life at the hands of Establishment operatives in the Deep State – the same Deep State that battles President Trump and his forces today.

Trump Is Anti-Establishment

     The point to be made is that the Democrat Party is still Establishment controlled, while President Trump is anti-Establishment and is in the process of stripping Establishment controls out of the Republican Party. Some have said it is really the Trump Party now. But Trump’s goal is not personal aggrandizement, as his detractors accuse. Trump and his most important backers intend that the American republic and the Republican Party finally should live up to their stated principles.

     Presently the Establishment is trying to drive America and the Democrat Party in precisely the opposite direction; that is, towards a global dictatorship ruled by the cabal through its border-less Deep State apparatus. If America is to be an independent nation governed as a republic, at least one of its political parties must fully embrace and champion America as a national republic. That defines both Trump’s goal and his campaign to achieve it.

Transition At Department Of Justice

     Now to the immediate issues at hand. Trump’s requested resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions ought to be viewed in much the same light as his requested resignation of General Michael Flynn. General Flynn had much to contribute to Donald Trump’s yet-to-be-inaugurated presidency at the time, but he was trapped by a conspiracy of others to tempt Trump into actions for which he might be impeached. Trump did not take the bait, but he lost the capable services of General Flynn in matters of national security and intelligence. (Stay tuned – General Flynn’s court hearing is set for early December regarding his guilty plea to misleading federal investigators, when no evidence exists to prove that charge.)

     Senator Sessions, likewise, was victimized by the Establishment plot against Trump, which alleged collusion between the Trump presidential campaign staff and “the Russians.” Sessions became the victim merely because he participated in the campaign as a supporter of Trump. We now know that those false allegations of “Russian collusion” were products of long term spying on the Trump campaign by the Obama administration, which was done in collaboration with the Clinton presidential campaign and foreign “allies,” Britain and Australia – all three governments tightly controlled by the Establishment.

     The false claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, still supported by no evidence at this late date, sidelined Attorney General Sessions from the role he might have played in preventing appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the non-existent crime. But significant evidence indicates AG Sessions went on to achieve very considerable results in his short time, about 21 months, in office.

     What were those results? Recall the executive order signed by President Trump on December 20, 2017, declaring a national emergency effective one minute into the next morning arising from human trafficking and corruption. This EO freezes all assets of every person or entity named in an attached list; the list has grown very long and reaches individuals and assets worldwide. The Sessions DOJ must have played some role conceiving and preparing that EO – ready to go precisely at the chosen time – and the EO may become one of the most consequential legal instruments in U. S. history.

     Secondly, the number of sealed indictments filed in federal courts across the U. S. increased by 5,651 during October to a total of 61,328. Gathering and presenting evidence to federal grand juries within a period of 12 months to support filing of criminal charges in that number of cases (an average of 5,575 cases per month) is unprecedented, and AG Jeff Sessions played a significant role in overseeing this work. 

     But, at the same time, don’t be quick to blame President Trump for being too hard on Sessions in criticizing his recusal from oversight of the “Russian collusion” special counsel, Robert Mueller. Most likely, that has been political theatrics by the president to keep media and Democrat politicians from hounding Sessions and interfering with his work.

     On November 7, Qanon+ posted a sincere thank you to Sessions for his service to our country, adding “your sacrifices will never be forgotten.” Within the hour, the president posted his thanks on Twitter. The Q+ designation is commonly understood (by me) to indicate a posting by Q reflecting the president’s view.

Declassification of Evidence

     Suspicions have mounted for months about unlawful actions by the Obama White House, DOJ, FBI, intelligence agencies and Congress:

          to undermine the Trump presidential campaign;

          to exonerate Clinton’s transmission of classified information on insecure equipment;

          to ignore other criminal activities involving Clinton and the Clinton Foundation;

          and ultimately to remove President Trump from office.

But evidence sought by House investigators has been kept secret by federal agencies involved on grounds that national security will be harmed by release of the information.

     Shortly before the November 6 voting date, President Trump stated that this contested evidence would be declassified and made public after the election. These disclosures are presently forthcoming, and are expected to have dramatic impacts on the political landscape and on numerous specific individuals. Members in both the House and the Senate are likely to be implicated, in numbers capable of affecting majority control (even of the House).

Election Fraud Investigation and Punishment

     Election fraud has been apparent in American elections for many years, but the blatant, in-your-face conduct exhibited in 2018 by partisans and by election officials in Florida and Arizona particularly, as well as other states, has been egregious since November 6. President Trump has remarked that he sent federal law enforcement officials into Florida (hopefully other states as well), and results would be forthcoming.

     Qanon has posted that we should watch California, too. Here is an affidavit given in Broward County, Florida, after the 2016 elections telling of practices used by election officials to create false ballots.

     Qanon’s last post shortly after midnight (early November 13) stated “53-47,” indicating what is likely to be the final tally of Republicans and Democrats in the Senate effective in January. If that turns out to be accurate, then Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have five more Republican votes to count as reliable than he has had during 2017-18. This greater strength will likely be important re-enforcement for the anti-Establishment agenda President Trump has planned.

     Considering what has been accomplished during the past two years, there is reason for optimism about what the Senate will do with the president. But the House under Speaker Pelosi again will be more problematic, unless and until criminal prosecutions affect membership numbers on both sides of the aisle.
