Trump Claims Without Evidence that the Election is Rigged,
but Officials Say That’s Not How Voting Works

Donald Trump amplified his unsubstantiated charge Monday that the presidential election would be rigged, creating another gut-check moment for fellow Republicans, particularly those whose job it is to ensure a free and fair election.

.

The allegation, which Trump has been making for months, undercuts the core promise of democracy and sows seeds of doubt among his supporters that Hillary Clinton, if victorious, would be a legitimate president.

.

Its another unprecedented claim in modern campaign history that includes a tradition of bipartisan support for the integrity of presidential elections  thus assuring a peaceful transition of power  even from those who lost highly contested battles such as former Vice President Al Gore.

.

Of course there is large-scale voter fraud happening on and before election day, Trump tweeted Monday. Why do Republican leaders deny what is going on? So naive!

.

For many in Trumps party, it was another bridge too far. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan and Trumps running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, had already distanced themselves from the claim. But state election officials were under even more pressure, with their competence as public servants being called into question.

.

They fought back by describing how elections work and noting that Trump cited no evidence in making his assertion.

.

I can say on Twitter Im a super-model, but that doesnt make it so, said Lynn Bartels, spokeswoman for Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams, disputing Trumps claims.

.

County clerks in her state released an open letter to voters Monday, outlining the security and transparency within the process, adding that our system is the best in the world and will achieve meaningful and credible outcomes.

.

Presidential elections are conducted on a state and local basis, not nationally, with more than 8,000 jurisdictions administering elections. And in most of the states seen to varying degrees as presidential battlegrounds, the chief elections officers are Republicans, including in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio and Utah. They are elected by voters. Most are secretaries of state; Utahs lieutenant governor oversees elections there.

.

In Florida, the secretary of state is appointed by the states Republican governor, Rick Scott  a Trump supporter. In North Carolina, the state board of elections has five members, appointed by the governor  currently a Republican. Its current chairman and three out of five members are Republicans.

.

Im a little frustrated when candidates try to distract the publics attention by blaming the technical side of the elections process rather than focus on the meat and potatoes of what Americans really want to hear about, said Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate, a Republican. My colleagues in other states, I believe, are of the same opinion.

.

Nearly half of Trumps supporters lack confidence that ballots will be counted accurately, a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Monday found.

.

Perception can become reality, Pate said. If you keep being told over and over and over that something is hacked even though it isnt, some people might start believing that. So yes, I do take it seriously.

“The Bigger the Lie” — The Republican Strategy & Joseph Goebbels

The Democratic Underground

.

The Republicans are using a propaganda strategy set out by the Nazis.

.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State. Joseph Goebbels

.

There are no military consequences to lying about the current president. There are no economic consequences to lying about the president and democrats. The PEOPLE have to ensure that there are political consequences to republicans lying because the strategy is for the republicans to keep repeating lies and denying the legitimacy of the president until the unsuspecting masses begin to believe it. It is purely propaganda promoted predominately by the main stream media. The media is saying that “we control the masses because we control what they hear and see.” The real war is for the hearts and minds of Americans. The real battle is between truth and lie.

Don’t Compare Donald Trump To Adolf Hitler. It Belittles Hitler.

One was a psychopath who believed his raving rants. The other is a con man.

Before their recent meeting  and I suspect a few times after  Mexican President Enrique Pe Nieto compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. He wasnt the first to do so, even in his own country. Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, has also compared Trump to Hitler. Cher has compared Trump to Hitler. Abraham Foxman, former national director of the Anti-Defamation League, has compared Trump to Hitler (although in fairness, thats kind of his whole brand). Even Glenn Beck compared Trump to Hitler. Well no doubt hear it again many times before this election is over, and, to be honest, its a comparison that bothers me for two reasons.

.

I am a Jew  a New York Writer Liberal Jew, the scariest Jew of all  and from a very young age, I was taught about an unimaginable horror called the Holocaust and about an evil man named Adolf Hitler. The elderly man who sat beside me every Saturday morning in synagogue was a Holocaust survivor, and his elderly wife was a Holocaust survivor, as well. And so the first reason the comparison of Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler bothers me is not because it belittles the deaths of millions of innocents, but because, frankly, it belittles Adolf Hitler.

.

Hitler believed Jews were the cause of every problem. He believed extermination was the solution. He believed that the Spear of Destiny, the spear the Romans used to poke Jesus on the cross, would give him magical powers. He had an elaborately developed, hideous, deplorable theory of how things worked, and he believed in it deeply.

.

Trump doesnt.

.

Hitler was a psychopath. Trump is just a con man.

.

Hitler had some opinions, he had some plans. They were monstrous and evil, and reason enough for even an avowed atheist to consider the existence of Satan. But I dont recall Hitler flip-flopping. I dont see him saying one morning, Im going to invade Poland, and then softening his stance that afternoon after meeting with Sean Hannity. He didnt decide to kill the Jews, then change his mind when his new campaign manager arrived. I said the kill the Jew  singular, one Jew, not all the Jews. Just the bad ones. Hitler was a megalomaniacal psychopath who should burn in Hell for eternity who actually believed in something.

.

Theres a difference. Trump is a two-bit con man. Hes playing the fools.

.

Whether hes jacking up room rates 400 percent when his campaign uses his hotels, or spending campaign money to buy his own books, or blowing racial dog whistles and then accusing his rival of being a bigot, or lying about crime rates to win African American votes, or just plain old running out on his bills  it is all, top to bottom, one long con. A scheme. A grift. To make a buck, to get out of hock, to get some fame, to get his own TV network  the ignominious ends always justify the ignoble means. Even his run for president is a con, a way to gain even more power than this millionaires son was already born with. It certainly isnt to implement any deeply felt ideas. It cant be. He hasnt got any. Its all about the con.
