Brian Mark Weber: Free and Fair Elections? — The Patriot Post

For weeks, there have been news reports and commentary on whether President Trump will "accept" the results of November's election. The president started it on July 19 when he was asked, on Fox News Sunday, "Can you give a direct answer you will accept the election?"

"I have to see," Trump said. "I have to see. No, I'm not going to just say yes. I'm not going to say no, and I didn't last time, either."

The answer set off a long trail of headlines: "Trump declines to say whether he will accept November election." "Trump won't commit to accepting result if he loses election." "Trump not ready to commit to election results if he loses." The president has continued to stir the pot since then, most notably with a tweet asking whether, because of potential problems with voting by mail, the Nov. 3 election should be postponed.

So there is much discussion of Trump and the election results. But there is another, equally pressing question: Will Democrats accept the results of the election if Joe Biden loses? A new report suggests the answer could be no.

The report comes from a secretive group called the Transition Integrity Project. A bipartisan, anti-Trump organization, TIP was created last year by Georgetown law professor Rosa Brooks and historian and think tanker Nils Gilman, "out of concern that the Trump administration may seek to manipulate, ignore, undermine or disrupt the 2020 presidential election and transition process."

In June, TIP organized a meeting of 100 "former high-ranking government officials, senior political campaigners, nationally prominent journalists and communications professionals, social movement leaders, and experts on politics, national security, democratic reform, election law, and media." The project originally kept the names of the 100 secret, but about 40 have now agreed to be publicly identified. (The rest remain anonymous.) Among the publicly known names are some of the most ardently anti-Trump voices in media and politics. Norm Eisen, who served as outside counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during impeachment, is part of the group, as is John Podesta, the former Hillary Clinton campaign chair who played key roles in the Obama and Bill Clinton White Houses, and former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile. There is former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, now seen denouncing the president on cable TV, and another former governor whose name remains secret. To make the group bipartisan, there are several members from Never Trump Republican and former Republican ranks: Reed Galen, a key organizer of the anti-Trump Lincoln Project, Bill Kristol, Max Boot, David Frum, and others.

    • She and Slick Willy should face the same outcome as their pal Epstein.


    • and Scalia and 12 Secret Service and about a hundred others.

  • tip sounds like copperheads from the 1860's 

  • The Demorats already think they have the election in the bag. That's why they are wanting to know if there will be trouble when Trump loses. Just like the last time when Trump was asked during the debate. Hillary thought it was arranged for her to win, even went so far as to have an early newspaper printed of her victory. So by all this and them pushing for mail in voting this tells me they are up to no good. They have got to be stopped! I have used mail in voting before but I never will again. I didn't know until I had done it that there was so much cheating of the vote where it was concerned. I have trouble with my legs and walking but I will vote in person if I have to go in a wheel chair. I also found out that you would have to send that vote in pretty early because they did a mock mail in and it took too long to get to where it was was going. So your mail in vote could and possibly did get there too late. I did wonder at the time if mine made it in time. The next time I voted in person so I knew for sure it was counted.

  • The Dems have yet to accept the results of the 2016 election. Why would 2020 be any different?

  • There is absolutely no way Joe Biden or any other radical leftist can win a free and fair election. So therefore we won’t have a free and fair election. The democrats and their allies will do anything and everything possible to defeat Trump. We should expect every kind of voter fraud imaginable in the coming election. The democrats may even attempt to seize power by force. America’s patriots must be ready to deal with the situation as it develops. A victory by the democrats means the complete and total loss of America and our freedoms.

    Please watch the linked video. It shows clearly how high the stakes really are.

  • We should never give up this country to communists and that is what the Democratic Party has become. They call themselves Progressive. That is the politically correct wat to say Marxist Communist.

    What happened to the Communist Control Act of 1954? Time to re-engage it. Also, its time to re-engage the Act keeping Muslims out of our political offices. Radical Muslims have creeped in.

    Time to eliminate both threats. Now is as good a time as any. Waiting only lets them infect our American Way faster.

  • Agreed. When they start the real civil war. Armed citizens must finish them off once and for all.

    • Its the only way to turn this around!
