Leftists still obsessing and selling insurrection lie
By Pete Riehm
January 5, 2022

After a year of incessantly lying and whining about an insurrection that never happened, the Democrat media complex is still intensely insisting that the 6 January 2021 events in Washington were worse than 9/11 or Pearl Harbor. They sob and swear our republic has not been in such acute jeopardy since the Civil War. Considering the entire insurrection story is completely fabricated, it’s preposterous to make such comparisons to a fictitious insurrection. However, consider that the last presidential election was stolen and then Democrats manufactured a Reichstag incident to blame and smear conservatives for threatening our Republic that resulted in scaring and dissuading Congress from doing their duty to only certify legitimate electors and investigate questionable results.

There was not an insurrection on 6 January 2021, but rather a coup on 3 November 2020. Democrats managed to certify massive presidential voter fraud and hijack the presidency; and the press has worked overtime to cover up that theft. That indeed is a grave threat to our Constitutional Republic, but as usual Democrats are wrongfully accusing Republicans of exactly the misdeeds they commit with impunity.

It was immediately obvious there were incredible irregularities and statistical impossibilities with the 2020 election results. States had implemented crazy loosey-goosey vote by mail procedures that allowed anyone to vote and vote repeatedly. For example, Pennsylvania mailed out about 1.8 million absentee ballots, but received and counted about 2.3 million absentee ballots. Americans literally watched vote totals switch on their screens. Battleground states stopped counting votes at the same time only to surreptitiously resume counting after all the poll watchers at been sent home. During the night, trucks and vans showed up in various states unloading pallets of ballots and many preprinted with only a vote for Biden. Republicans collected THOUSANDS of affidavits attesting to gross voter fraud in multiple states. But the FBI refused to investigate, the courts declined to hear any cases, and the press insisted there was nothing to see.

It was all a grand fraud and massive cover up. The mainstream media pooh-poohed any notion of voter fraud, but the evidence is still slowly steadily seeping out. Every battleground state has ongoing investigations despite Democrat stonewalling. When the evidence is viewed in its totality, the corruption is flagrant, but the corruption and cheating is so complex and convoluted it’s hard to comprehend when you can only find one piece of the puzzle at a time.

However, there is one glaring metric of widespread epic voter fraud that is inescapable. From 2000 to 2016, the number of voters in presidential elections increased from 120 million to 129 million, but in 2020 we had 155 million voters! It is statistically impossible that 26 million more Americans turned out to vote in just four years. Add to that the fact that no other sitting president ever got TEN million more votes in his reelection bid! And now watching bumbling Biden, does anyone seriously believe from his basement he got 11 million more votes than Obama?! Democrats with who knows whose help simply CHEATED!!!

The insurrection narrative was a sinister set up and cynical charade to frame the conscientious good Americans who went to Washington from across the country to voice their distinct displeasure with rampant voter fraud, blatant failures to investigate, brazen lies and twisting of facts, and an utter lack of accountability. The real crimes were committed before, during, and after the 2020 election. It was the largest larceny and most egregious political corruption in our history! Democrats literally stole the American presidency and dared anyone to mention it. They knew this was the worst political crime ever, so they knew the best way to get away with it was to accuse someone else of something worse.

Democrats knew they had committed a heinous crime against the American people and the people would be furious; and if they were exposed, they should all go to prison. They knew the people were coming to Washington to have their grievances addressed, so they lured them into a trap. Now in retrospect, the snare is obvious. Nancy Pelosi declined the offer of the National Guard and declined the requests of Capitol Police for reinforcements despite numerous intelligence reports of huge crowds and the high probability protesters would be infiltrated by leftist agitators. And while the FBI knew there would be multitudes descending on Washington, they didn’t investigate anyone coming, but rather infiltrated the crowds and tried to incite violence to create the premises to charge law abiding citizens for exercising their right to free speech. It was a disgusting betrayal.

A year later the picture is getting clearer about the fantastic 2020 voter fraud and Pelosi’s 6 January Commission has been exposed as an absurd sham, but Democrats cannot give up their lies nor retreat in silence. For to admit their lies about 6 January would show they only perpetrated this horrible hoax because they had something much worse to hide, like stealing the oval office.

As the truth becomes known and Democrat malfeasance is understood, Americans will punish Democrats at the polls, but they will also clamor for Democrats to be criminally prosecuted for their capitol offenses. So expect Democrats to become even more vicious and vile as they are cornered with the truth and hopefully served justice. It will get even uglier, but our republic can only be restored if we hold these criminals to account. Despite the relentless ridicule, We The People must demand accountability!

“The judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So you shall purge the evil from your midst” (Deuteronomy 19:18-19).
