The November 3 presidential election left Americans bitterly divided, with a recent poll revealing that three-quarters of Republicans do not trust the election results and nearly 30% of independents are also skeptical.
Donald Trump refuses to concede the vote, accusing his opponents of widespread fraud.
Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich has announced that he will not accept Joe Biden as president, saying the elections were just the “straw” in a “crisis of confidence” “ accelerates and deepens “among millions of Americans in their political system.
In an editorial published by The Washington Times, Gingrich said his concerns went beyond potential fraud during the election itself and had just as much to do with the political establishment’s more than four-year campaign for attack Trump and his supporters. .
“For more than four years, the entire establishment has rallied against the President-elect of the United States as if it was an immune system trying to kill a virus. Now they tell us we are undermining democracy. You have over 74 million voters who backed President Trump regardless – and given the electoral mess, the number could easily be much higher. The truth is, tens of millions of Americans are deeply insane and angry, ”Gingrich wrote.
“In this environment, I have no interest in legitimizing the father of a son that Chinese Communist Party members brag about buying,” the politician added, referring to the Hunter Biden scandal. “I also have no interest in claiming that the current result is legitimate or honorable. It is simply the final blow of a four-year media takeover. It was perpetrated by people who broke the law, deceived the land of information, and smeared those of us who believe in America at the expense of China, the history of revisionism, and the liberal ideal of free speech over cancellation culture, ”argued Gingrich.
Having warned that America is “heading for a serious and bitter struggle,” the retired lawmaker suggested that the establishment would “likely only become more corrupt and aggressive” if it was allowed to “get away with it.” these blatant acts ”.
Gingrich, who entered politics in the mid-1970s and won his first congressional election in 1978 before eventually becoming Speaker of the House in the mid-1990s, noted that the “level of outrage and alienation” which he has witnessed in the current electoral cycle was “unlike anything I had experienced in over 60 years of involvement in public affairs.”
The politician also attacked Democrats by demanding that Tories accept the election results and support Biden, recalling that Trump’s election prompted Democrats to launch the (since debunked) Russiagate investigation and immediately start scheming on the means of dismissing him.
Regarding the fraud allegations themselves, Gingrich echoed the claims made by the Trump campaign about alleged violations by states of their own election laws by sending out millions of ballots to all registered voters and the states decision. swing to suspend the normal vote verification procedures for postal votes. He also attacked the media, writing that “when I watch story after story about voter fraud, without even the appearance of due diligence or journalistic curiosity, I know something is wrong.”
Gingrich is one of tens of millions of Republicans who refused to reject the November 3 election results. Earlier this month, a poll commissioned by NPR and PBS NewsHour found that just 24% of Republicans accepted the results, with 28% of independents feeling the same and 5% of both saying they were unsure.
President Trump continues to refuse to concede the election, accusing Democrats of stealing the victory from him using faulty voting machines, mass voting dumps and other ploys. Trump has claimed he had “hundreds and hundreds” of sworn affidavits and thousands of testimonies to support the fraud claims, but so far the allegations have not been upheld in the courts of State. In addition, the Supreme Court dismissed a case brought by the state of Texas that accused several battlefield states of violating local election laws, saying it had no merit.
The Electoral College certified Joe Biden’s victory on December 14, with Congress scheduled to hold a joint session to finalize the vote on January 6. Biden is scheduled to open on January 20.
Robert Barnes explains how January 6 will reveal Donald J. Trump’s re-election or reveal which Republicans working for the Deep State.
